    Hey all you guys that shoot drop-aways. What brand do you use and what are the ins and outs of them. I am looking for one, but I just can't make up my mind.:z

    Thanks

    I currently shoot the trophy taker original, and have shot the shaky hunter quite a bit. Both have worked great for me.:tu

    Shaky hunter, Drop zones are the most popular. I use a Schaffer Mat-1 on my Mathews and it is a rock solid unit that performs flawless. My second choice would be the drop zone.

    I put a QAD Ultra Pro series on my SB this year and just love it. No more worrying about an arrow falling off your rest and all the benefits of a dropaway rest.

    They are all good...Some have features others don't just need to see which one will fit your needs better..

    I just switched to a ripcord this year with the new bow setup. So far I like it, I did have to add some moleskin to quiet the draw a bit.

    I had always used the Trophy Taker but I put a ripcord on my new Switchback XT and would definitely recommend this rest. Easy to adjust, quiet and has a feature that prevents the rest from falling out when knocked.
