A fall away will give you truer flight from your arrow as well as less noise from your shot. It just boils down to personal preferences. I now use a fall away and have noticed a remarkable increase of accuracy a longer ranges. Word of advice is if you chose a fall away buy one that will hold the arrow in place even if the bow is bumped.

Whisker biscuit...not as accurate, but at least you know your arrow isn't coming off the rest. Some of the newer prong style (or maybe just the drop aways) have a system to hold the arrow too. I think these would work good as wmi suggested, but I don't have any experience with them yet. If you use a prong style make sure you keep your silencers in good shape.

full containment fall away

Quality Archery Design makes a rest called Ultra Rest HD Pro Series that is pretty impressive. It is a full drop away that is also a full containment. You can lock the forks up so the arrow wont fall any where but when you shoot it automatically drops. You aught to check it out.

It seems like alot of bowhunters here use or have used a whisker buscuit rest. I have used one for four years now but am not real happy with the sound of the carbon arrows sliding through when I draw. Does anyone have some tips or advice on how to quiet this?

I like the prong style whisker biscuit like joel the signman said its like a whisker biscuit but has space for fletchings, to me its like a whisker biscuit for arrows that have the traditional long fletchens !!! I actually just put mine on this weekend and I love it

I went from prongs to a drop-a-way and it has improved my groups. I haven't used a whisker biscuit rest so I can't help you on your question just passing on some info. I'm inclined to believe any friction on an arrow even ever so slight, causes a speed reduction and a chance for noise. Drop-a-way rests are very quiet also.

Boy I feel like old school, I still use a NAP Quicktune was at the right place at the right time a couple of years ago got three BNIB for $25. Fell in love with them and my set up shoots great. Purchased a new bow last year and put one of them on it. I have been very lucky only had an arrow come off the rest a couple of times while hunting. I am just one when I get use to something and I like it, I prefer not to change it.

The QAD rest is the way to go I think. I love mine, and the owner of the bow shop I go to said that is the only rest he would put on his bow. I had a whisker biscuit but switched to this one it's awesome.
