    I'm new to archery and outfitting a bow with accessories. I plan to only hunt with it (aside from practicing obviously). Currently looking at rests and can't decide between the traditional WB or an enclosed drop-away like the QAD. Let her rip, guys. I need recommendations(preferably from guys who have used both).

    Ditto!!!! No question about it!! Let's see, a zero friction, zero noise, zero fletch destruction rest vs. some friction, some noise, and fletch destruction. I still can't believe people use WB's.

    Do you think, for hunting applications, there's any benefit to keeping the arrow contained and not falling off the rest--particularly in spot-and-stalk situations?

    Yes.....Not alot...but enough to warrant buying a containment rest. Also, with a drop away you get zero drag....which gives you more of a pure arrow flight. I agree with the others....Drop away is the way to go.

    I have been using a biscuit since they came out, with absolutly no problem. when hunting I do not want worry about where the arrow is durring draw wile that once in a life time buck is in front of me. I am shooting the x-force with a biscuit at 332 fps but I do cut the biscuit where the fletch go though. just my .02
