Limbdriver Pro V. Easier to setup. Nothing tied to the down cables, easier tuning (no lining up of timing marks) and much quieter than a QAD. I was a QAD fan till I started using a Limbdriver.

I've also been shooting the Trophy Taker for years now...I like the micro adjustable version to to make it easier to tweak the rest position during the tuning process. The rest works very well all around and set up is a breeze once you know how to do it.

I shot a bunch of them and settled on the KazAWAY from Vital X. I know you never hear of it and I don't understand why. I found it's superior to all the other ones, it has a solid containment feature, better than any other drop-away. I switched to this rest when I started hunting out west about 4 years ago and now have it on all my bows. It's the best I have found.

I'm personally not a fan of drop aways because I think it doesn't compare to the Whisker Biscuit. Just my opinion. If you really want it then go for it! :up:

Check out this video on the Biscuit..... Sure does have a lot of movement. Notice also how the arrow kinda moves around within that hole upon launch..

Funny how in super slow mo you can see so much going on but after all is said and done, I break enough knocks and shoot tight enough groups to kill deer using the bisquit and I'm a big fan of keep it simple stupid.

I bought a bow that had a trophy taker and it worked fine, shot well with it but don't like the little arrow bounce coming to full draw, I swapped it for a WB. Also bought a bow that had a ripcord rest, that seemed smoother than the TT but also swapped that for a WB. Still got it if you want it back Joe.
