I use a Ripcord SOS hooked to my bottom limb. To me it's all the good things of different style rests in one. Full containment, drop away, and limb driven.

3 answers...3 different replies. Lol.

My favorite one of all I've tried is the AAE Pro Drop. Whatever you get...make sure it's limb driven. All 3 that have been listed thus far are limb driven as well.

Why CT? I honestly do not know unless it is to be sure that the rest is down before the arrow gets to it?

I have had people tell me that they want to be sure the rest is all the way down with their super fast set-ups. But I thought that 3-D shoots only allowed 280 fps max speed???

At one time, years ago, when I competed, this was the case.

And for hunting, I would think that dragging my bow through the thickets I hunt would be a problem for a long cord.

So tell me, honestly, why I need a limb driven rest for my next bow, which I will be buying as soon as I get back from a January Trip to Illinois.

BTW, I currently use a Code Red.

102 -- If the thickets are that thick, I don't see how you would get through there with a treestand on your back, and or a quiver and stabilizer attached to your bow either. If you can't get your bow through a thicket with a cord for a limb driven rest, then you wouldn't be able to get it through there with the string and cable/s either. \:\)

Although I think your intent is to pick a fight with me, about this, I wont say anything else on the issue after this.

I've personally found the limb driven rests to be easier for people (me included) to setup and get right. With cable driven rests, you have to get the timing just right for the arrow to clear. Most all of the trouble people have with them, can be traced back to the rest not being setup correctly. The OP said in his post he was going to be new to drop away rests, so I recommended what I've found to be the most simple of them to setup and get right with not a lot (or any) experience. I don't like using the cheap clamps and I don't like tying/serving anything to my cable either. So limb driven rests eliminate both of those and are very very simple to setup and get right.

I chose the Pro Drop over the others because it comes stock with an actual cable instead of d-loop material that stretches. The cable don't stretch. Once you set it up, its not moving. For what it's worth...I still shoot 3D with a blade rest. Its something I've always done. But as of now I wouldn't have a problem shooting the Pro Drop for 3D.

Limb driven rests are also easier when it comes to tuning the bow. I do not use the "football' that comes with most drop aways, I like to serve them into the cable. When you tune the bow and twist the cable you have to reserve the drop chord. Also with limbdriven rests there is no timing issues that can arise.Have lots of customers that use qad though and they are a great rest.
