Arrow Rest for a Hoyt bow
Im a beginner archer. I just bought a Hoyt Rampage XT and was wondering if anyone had any advise on what kind of drop away arrow rest I should get

Any rest that strikes your fancy. I like QAD.
Have a good day and a better hunt

I have 2 hoyts both have QAD's and just for starting out a QAD hunter is a great rest for the price.If you want to spend a little more the other QAD's have a little more adjustment and tuning features.

I have a Ripcord Code Red on my Maxxis 31. It's a great rest for the money. There are a lot of good/great rests out there and you just have to find the one that best fits you and the type of set up that you are going to shoot. (target, hunting, 3d)

I started my first year out on a Hoyt Maxxis 31 with an Octane. I was either replacing brushes all the time cause I practiced a lot or my shot placement was not consistent. But like you I was in my first year. As of March this year I'm in my second and have gotten me a Hoyt CRX 35 but I opted to get a Ripcord Code Red or something like that. My accuracy has improved 100%. From personal experience, I wished I had gone with a Rip Cord to begin with. Oh and as the person above this post is saying...its what fits you that is important.

I use a Limbdriver on my Hoyt bow. I like it a lot.

have a QAD on mine, best rest i've ever used.

I put the Hoyt QAD rest on my Hoyt CRX 32.

Be careful what you buy. I was told you should check with a Hoyt dealer before buying any rest. I was told the NAP Apache rest will not fit the Hoyt riser. I have a CRX 32 and I am shooting a Rip Cord code red. My son has a Powerhawk and he shoots a OAD and I like both rests. If I bought another I would probally go with the Hoyt rest , which I believe is made by OAD.

Well depends, are you hunting or target? If your hunting I would agree with the full containment rest. I use the ripcord on my hunting bow. If your target shooting then get your self a trophy taker which is an amazing rest and I hunted with it for years until I got tired of holding my arrow with my index finger all day.
