I know you will get several answers, so I'll chime in first. I shoot a Trap Door fall away. But they don't make that rest any longer. One of the most popular is the Trophy Taker. I will also have to say it is a very good rest. My wife shoots one and has never had any trouble out of it.

I really like my QAD HD pro. The Mathews Convertible HD II is an excellent rest also.

Double Drops and Spoon both recommended rest I have used and liked.

I went to a very simple Cobra Diamondback, and LOVE IT!
The QAD mentioned above is excellent, especially thumb mechanism.

I switched to fall away a few years ago...would never shoot anything else. I shoot the trophy taker. I love it! They fixed me up at Outdoor Connection.

I like the Muzzy Zero Effect because it was solid as a rock and simple to tune . I have owned several other rests , but this is the best drop away I have shot .
I still think that a whisker biscuit , when set up right is the best HUNTING rest on the market .

I am shooting a ripcord and love it. My buddy got a QAD rest that is almost the exact same That I like a little better because of the thumb mechanism and the way the cord is built into it.

I have had a Muzzy Zero Effect on several bows and it is a great rest, but my Vulcan's short cable slide movement coupled with my 28 inch draw I was getting a slight clearance problem. I just ordered a Trophy Taker today to replace it. Hope it is as good as advertised.

I don't really know what happened. I do know Trap Door isn't being sold in done of my catalogs I have received this year. It is a good rest in my opinion and the company always done me good. The only flaw that I can find is in the brass block of the cocking mechanism after a few thousand shots or so it wore mthe edge off and it "might" let the rest fall if you tilted the bow straight down like you were shooting straight down from your trestand. abaut I always fixed this by tightening the adjustment down a bit.

I was thinking I hadn't seen one in any of the catalogs. I myself don't like the micro adjust model. It makes the rest sit to far back behind the bow's pivot point. I like the rest itself to be more towards the back of the bow or more towards my bow arm fingers. This allows for less critical grip placement and helps in making the bow a bit more forgiving.

I know this is an old post, but I just installed a Vapor Trail Limb Driver on my Bowtech Tomkat and I am impressed. I have fought through all kinds of tuning issues with the Whisker Biskit and finally broke down after reading lots of posts on the Limb Driver at Archery Talk. It took 10 minutes to mount, level and adjust center shot on the Limb Driver and I immediately had perfect bullet holes in paper and field point/broadheads at same point of impact out to 40 yards.
I am not bashing the WB or any other drop away, I could always count on decent arrow flight with other rests but would get the odd flyer often enough to drive me crazy. The LD drop away changed that instantly. Best money I ever spent on archery equipment.

I actually took both of my drop away rests off my two bows , and put a WB back on the Mathews ,and a NAP 360 on the Kodiak Outdoors . Both are simple to keep tuned and much better for hunting in my opinion .
I'm going back to the K.I.S.S. setups this year .
