Gonna agree with the others on the limb driven rests. If the cord gets messed up in the field its an easy fix - you can even use a shoestring/paracord/etc. Hamskea gets my vote although I had a VaporTrail before with no complaints about it as well.

Thanks to all that responded sounds like the way to go for accuracy is with the drop away and looking at the prices in the catalog some of those rest are in the 200.00 plus price range, Tain't no way I can justify that kinda of a price for just the rest and working with a limited budget, have to go with what fits the budget, so unless there is a decent drop away for under 100.00  looks like it'll be a whisker biscuit.

Don't do it!!!

A hamskea should last the life of your bow. QAD I've heard can freeze up in extreme cold. Whiskers if get wet, can also freeze together. Limb driven is my vote.

What others haven't mentioned over a whisker is the ability to run 4 fletch and offset/helical. This will help quite a bit to stabilize broadheads.

$100 extra is worth the cost. Do what you can to scrap up an extra hundred. Go with your whisker for another season to scrap some things together or do what you can to find an extra $100, but it's not going to be a straight $100.

You can get a hamskea hybrid hunter shipped to your door for $153 right now, and using cash back sites you get another $9 back.

So it's really a $150 VS under $100 decision.

You're wasting $80 to $100 in my opinion getting another whisker.

Head on over to archery talk and join it then cruise the classifieds

You can find a hamskea limb driven rest for way less than new and every transaction I've had on there has been great. Just be mindful of the posters previous dealings which are easy to get a picture of the type of seller they are and you can snag some great deals for your archery equipment

Please please please go for the limb driven drop away it's a huge difference I swear if I had an extra I'd give it to you.

First thanks to everyone e the responded and offered suggestions
Update with the temp already at 95 degrees at 0900 decided indoors was the place to be packed up the bow and headed to N40 to see Adam, decided to  bite the bullet and get me my own B day present 3 months early and had Adam install the QAD ULTRAREST, got back home and glad the man cave has a bed in it, wife not so mad about the purchase but that I bought it and now she has to figure out something else.
Now just need to wait till 0430 tomorrow to give everything a try
