Found a '11 Alpha Elite and am curious what rest you guys are using on yours.
I'll be using it for Spot and 3-d Shoots. Hunter class for now.

I don't have an AE, but for any bow being used for target and 3D I'd suggest a simple blade rest. A Trophy Taker is a great, simple rest that won't break the bank. And the NAP3000 prong rest is a wonderful, highly tunable rest that is easier to keep the arrow on than a blade, but also has a lizard tongue option.....plus they work great on Hoyt risers (there are even Hoyt branded versions with "locks" to keep them in place).

I would, but only if you can't get fletching clearance from a simpler rest. I've personally seen people lose points from activation cables slipping, cords coming out of their buss cable, internal parts failing and so on. I've never seen anything like that from a blade or prong rest, but these can be harder to get clearance with if you're using skinny arrows with a lot of offset on your fletchings.

I've used HHA and TT dropaways without issues myself. But I still prefer simple rests.

Is the NAP 3000 much better than the NAP 1000?
