    I just purchased an Elite Synergy bow and was debating which rest to put on it. Here are some of the options I am thinking about. Your honest input would be appreciated.

    of the ones you posted, the QAD, would be my choice, without knowing what the use for the bow would be.......

    I'm staying out of this one....

    I can't vote since all I've used in your voting list is a WB, which I rejected years ago.... Limb Drivers seem to get very good praise, as well as QAD, as well as the Drop Zone. However, I'm a 'keep it simple stupid' kind of guy and the drop zone seems to have too many moving parts and too many grooves and channels that snow and cr*p can get into.....

    Based on what I read and common sense on my own part I would not consider a drop zone.....

    I put the limb driver out here because most of the people I know that shoot an elite has one on it. I have never used one, but willing to give it a try if I hear enough good things about it.

    I'm fine with one of the others for 3D but if it's going hunting I won't use anything else but a WB.

    NONE of the above. Alpine Whisperflite Master. Dual ballbearings on the shaft, you don't need an arrow holder, quiet and about half the price of what you have listed.

    I have switched to Limb Drivers on all my binary bows. I never really liked hooking anything to a cable, and this rest eliminates that. The rest stays up for at least 1/2 of the arrow flight out of the bow. They are really easy to set up. They are probably the best selling item in the shop right now.

    I the one I would suggest is not listed, out of the ones listed the TT or the WB, but that would depend on the use of the bow.

    I had a QAD on my Diamond Liberty that I sold last month. I don't know if I didn't like the rest or because I didn't like the bow.

    I had a Bodoodle long ago. They went belly up and then fairly recently re-started again. I don't know how the products are now but they were really good then...

    No drop-aways though...

    Cool, they used to make some good stuff. I had a trophy light pro or something like that. It had a spring loaded hinge that held the launcher prongs and the backward force of the shot would drop the prongs a bit and gain fletch clearance. It also had an awsome semi-containment frame that was great. Unless you were trying to shoot upside down that rest was the ticket.
