Postby Mike Brooks » Mon May 26, 2008 8:48 am

Are there any negative effects on arrow performance with these rests?

thats a hot one Mike...the guys that use them love them...I hate them...but I always thought they were an attempt to be a cure all...no tournament or very serious target archers use them...but for a knock around pure hunting bow I am sure they are more than fine...

I have been using Bowdoodle's for way to long...started when I shot competitive 3-D...and never quit since(15 years)...same basic idea that the whiskers have(shaft securement) but wear and accuracy are superior with the BD...

I am sure that will get some blood flowing...especially among some of the guys that really love their whiskers...LOL...t :grin: :grin:

I just started bow hunting about 4 years ago and all my hunting is done from a tree stand. At the recommendation of my son I put a WB on my bow and haven't been sorry. It not the cure for everything but when that deer comes into sight I can try to concentrate on my shot and the noise from my heart pounding, and I don't have to worry about my arrow falling off the rest. Still haven't found the cure for my heart pounding and I guess if I do it will be time to give up deer hunting. :grin:

Hi Carroll ! the WB is great for that...but probably single favorite reason I like the BD...all the benefits of the drop away or pronghorn...but also I can turn the bow upside down and its stays perfectly in place...t

it uses three prongs that support the arrow( 120 degrees apart)cock feather goes down...and also offers good protection from fixed broadheads (required out West)...infomercial
over...t..LOL...

Hi David...nice to see you you in friendly territory


Yes, I agree, I am glad you are talking to me my friend. I thought I might of offended you and that was not my intentions. I looked at the picture of the arrow rest you posted and noticed you have a PSE. first bow I ever had was a PSE, sold it and bought a new PSE. Had it for 10 years and loved it. I just bought a fred bear instinct and have not had a chance to shoot it yet. Going to soon. of course, it has the whisker bisquit LOL. God Bless.

I had my arrow rest break out in the field, and a fellow hunter had an old WB.. I put it on and could tell a difference in the speed and drop of the arrow, because I had to resight in the bow.. But I think the bennefits outweigh the costs.. At least for me..

Quality Archer Products have one that is all the pro's of WBs w/ no bad effects. It locks up with a plastic bar on top to hold it in. But when you shoot the inertia of the string popping forward drops the rest and off it goes.
