The hostage arrow rest is a good rest, I would buy that because of how easy it is to set up.

I tried one last year on my Hoyt Vectrix. It wouldn't fit this model. Even if it did, I wouldn't put up with the noise my arrow makes while being drawn across the brush. I'm a stickler about everything being as silent as possible for hunting. I know some claim the deer can't hear it. If I can hear it, it's too loud for me. On a windless day I can hear a snowflake hit my boot. If the deer in your area are heavily hunted like they are here, arrow on rest noise may spook them. I went to a Limbdriver. A piece of sticky felt on the launcher blade and it's silent on the draw. Easy to set up and tune, also. Check out the Limbdriver set up video on Vapor Trail's web sight, if your interested.

Had the hostage, went to a wisker bisquit and back to the hostage but the hostage pro this time. Now I'm happy.
