Thread: Best arrow rest for hunting?

    Best arrow rest for hunting?

    Any opinions on what the best hunting rest is? So far seems like QAD and Limbdriver are very popular?

    Short Range (like just about any woods scenario where your longest possible shot is 30yds): Some variation of a biscuit. Preferably one with minimal shaft contact like the Octane Hostage.

    Long Range (like you might see in open country where you could shoot 65yds or maybe more): Some kind of drop away. Preferably the limbdriver or a high en full containment rest like the QAD HDX or Rip Cord Code Red. I have not tried the Limb Driver Pro-V yet, but it looks promising if you want full containment.

    I am really liking the Revolution rest by Trophy Ridge. It has been the easiest rest I have ever setup. I like it much better than the QAD ultra pro hd that it replaced.

    I agree that the QAD HD was terrible. It couldn't clear the fletchings when shot on my 82nd. The HDX makes the cut though. I'd still like to see a comparison of the NAP sizzor and armorrest and that Revolution everyone seems to like so much.

    monsterbuckrick,

    I've got to give Pigman credit for that group. It's impressive. Still, I would prefer to give myself the additional forgiveness at longer ranges. I never said long range couldn't be done with a whisker biscuit, but no one can say that a whisker biscuit offers as much or more forgiveness as a drop away rest.

    I think I'm leaning towards a drop away
    Especially for those long range elk and Mulie shots....are any other rests limb driven like the limbdriver?

    Put a little felt/moleskin on your riser where the rest contacts it. If you don't like the way that looks there are specific products for that purpose. I went with the felt and took a sharpie to it to get a unique lime and black tiger stripe pattern. It's not pro level by any means, but it's my work and the felt is effective.

    Limbdriver Pro or Pro V. Easy to tune and set up. Very few moving parts and drops at any speed.

    Whisker Biscuit. It simple, easy to tune, and very dependable. I have used one for almost 10 years and it has never let me down. When that MONSTER is within bow range, you won't have to worry about the Whisker Biscuit failing. I'm sure which ever rest you choose, you will find one that works for you. good luck.
