Bow Peripherals Questions?
 
1. What kind of rest do you use, and why?

2. Whisker Biscuit or Catawba Stillshot and why?

3. Does anyone use the Hindsight system?

4. If so, what are the advantages/disadvantages?

Thanks!

1. What kind of rest do you use, and why? I use a Drop away full containment style rest because it is easy to setup and get no contact with the arrow like fletchings.

2. Whisker Biscuit or Catawba Stillshot and why? Nope - I did shot the WB when they came out but didn't like what they did to my fletching.

3. Does anyone use the Hindsight system? Curious about them myself but I don't know anyone who does shot one.

4. If so, what are the advantages/disadvantages?

Well, I pulled the trigger after speaking with the people at Hindsight. They assured me that they provide a money back guarantee and if I am not happy with the product, I can return it. I purchased the Hindsight Eclipse. Anxious to see what it does.

I also wanted to get away from my whisker biscuit due to the damage to the flights and the whisker biscuit I was made for thicker aluminum arrows. I thought about a drop away, but my previous experiences of the arrow coming dislodged while drawing back, guided me towards the quiktune 360 arrow rest.

I'll have both within a week and will get everything tuned in afterwards. I'll post my experiences after getting all finished up.

1. What kind of rest do you use, and why?

Vaportrail Limbdriver. Mostly because it gurantess fletching clearance and there is nothing attached to my cables and strings

2. Whisker Biscuit or Catawba Stillshot and why?

I only use drop away rests. I want as minimal rest to arrow contact once the trigger is pulled.


3. Does anyone use the Hindsight system?

nope G5 meta peep

4. If so, what are the advantages/disadvantages?

none I know off. I just like the further distance between the front and rear site. the meta peep is only about 5 grains.
