    Hey from a new TX member...

    It was my birthday this weekend, and damn if my girlfriend didn't get me a slightly upgraded bow!!! Drenalin to be exact.

    My carbon extreme is kind of long in the tooth and i'd been looking at a switchback or outback, but this kind of trumps it.

    I'm a hunter, not a 3d guy, but wanted to ask a rest question. I want a capture rest and guess i could give up a bit of speed, but one of my hunting buddies is shooting a whisker bisket and says it tears up/off his fletches? Anybody else? I read up on reviews on capture/fall away rests and none of them are really getting just great reviews. Any opinions appreciated. I was also looking at the mathews convertible HDII, it looks pretty cool, but i've shot about 4 different rests on my old bow and found that expensive wasn't necessarily better.

    I think i've got the rest of the rig figured out, but WOW!!! 100$ for mathews new arrow web quiver! That's kind of steep. I don't know if i can spring for that.

    Glad to have found the forum.

    Gotta shoot blazer vanes. I had that problem with 5" vanes. Get a whisker biscuit and you wont regret it. Just make sure you buy blazer vanes to put on your arrows.:welcome: to 3dshoots

    I've been playing around with the Vapor Trail Limb Driver. I don't like to add anything to my cables if I don't have too. So far it's been great. I haven't used it in a hunting situation yet. Just ordered another one .

    A pro series QAD is probally the best full containment drop away on the market. I currently shoot a whisker on my hoyt, arrows tend to fly a tad nock high through a whisker biscuit, but they are dependable for hunting - no moving parts! Blazer vanes are the way to go with a WB, and I put a small drop of glue on the leading edge of the vane as others have stated. I have no problems with my whisker, but I plan on putting a QAD on my trykon or new bow next year.
