    I have both and my prong rest is already mounted and tuned. I also have a WB. Which would be better, I will be hunting from a blind and the occasional treestand.

    Whisker

    I shoot WB's on both of my bows, one less thing to think about! They can be difficult to paper tune but once they are set up they are hard to beat for around $30. I am beginning to consider the QAD pro series drop aways though, they are just too expensive $100 for a drop away!:doh: :doh:

    I shoot blazer vanes with my wb and they do fine, shot the same biscuit for 2 years without replacing it, still looks new! I don't understand why fletchings get destroyed and wb's get mangled. I seem to have good luck with them I guess, just make sure the wb is the right size for your arrows!

    I just put on the WB and I am

    Just as impressed with the WB as I am with my prong rest. it took a few minutes to 10yd tune but I am about 1-1.5" high @ 10 yds but in the middle of the diamond so I am happy. I like the WB because the arrow doesnt fall off and since I have blazers I am not seeing any rippling. I definitly like the security of the arrows staying on my rest so I may practice with the WB and make my final decision b4 I hunt.

    I wouldnt use a prong rest again even if they offered to pay me.

    I personally love my WB but killed deer with a prong too. So its all about what you trust and confidence in your equipment. By the way this year I am hunting with my Ripcord.:tape:
