What arrow rest do you use and why?

I'm getting a rig set up for my first dive into IBO 3d and was wondering what everyone is useing. I'm lookin real hard at a GKF Mirage or a Ripcord.

Ripcord

I've used the Ripcord for two years and it is very effective in the field. However, I switched to a metal fork because I could not standtic the Mickey Mouse plastic one that came with the rest.

I am using the standard Trophy Taker. It is a good, solid, tested and true rest. You can't go wrong.

I use a trophy taker. I purchased it in 02, I have hunted with it and shot 3-d with it for 4 years. It has been on 4 different bows of mine. The trophy taker is very durable and it is also stupid proof. Once you set it up it takes all the clearance problems out of tunning your bow. Trophy Taker was the first dropaway everything else is a copy.

I use the tropthy ridge drop zone because it is the only rest that drops straight down.

I highly recommend the GKF Infinity with vapor launcher.

It's premo.

I also like the Mathews HD drop away.

Take a look at the Schaffer. Its a very solid rest and reliable. Never had a glitch in 6 years of shootin.

Using the Trap Door, first dropaway I have owned, so far it is doing just fine. Any opinions on this rest, it is the Mach4.
