    Best arrow rest for feathers

    Guys which arrow rest do you prefer for arrows with tree bark feathers?? I had a guy make me some fine arrows and I have a whisker biscuit now and know they will get torn up by it! Any advice??

    Thanks

    Any total clearance drop-away rest will do.

    I agree any properly set up drop away. But unless you plan on hanging them on a wall and never shooting them they are going to get tore up. I use a drop away rest and just target shooting I will have at least a half a dozen reflected a few times a year.
    Have a good day and a better hunt

    If your not planning on hunting, I'd say go for prong or blade rest...if you are, pony up the extra cash and make sure whatever you buy has anti-kick back or brake or lock of some kind. The above mentioned drop Aways are great!

    Great looking arrows you have there. Grats.
    IMO, any drop away rest will be good for feathers.

    My personal choice is the QAD HD PRO.
    Just avoid a WB if you are interested in keeping feathers in as good as possible condition.

    You don't have to shoot hundreds of arrows a week to take a toll on feathers. Have you ever shot feathers before? I've been shooting them for many years now----fact of life they take more care than a vane but more forgiving IMHO.

    Hostage Pro..........ever think about hunting hogs in the off season?

    A drop away rest or shoot through rest will work. If it has the clearance, a no vane contact rest such as the octane hostage could work. I have seen some people shoot feathers through WB with apparent success. You could give it a go but your mileage may vary.

    Hell, use anything you want, besides a biscuit. I used a WB when they first came out (all stiff, black bristles and no top loading slot) and I found feathers to outlast most vanes I've shot through it. The edges would look a bit rough after a while, but they didn't get wrinkled, torn or ripped off like most vanes did.
    All hail Lord Trump!
