    I had a Whisker Biscuit on my fPSE and was perfectly happy with it. When I ordered my Heli-m the shop strongly suggested a drop away rest. The rest they set me up with is a Trophy Taker X-Treme FC with the angled slot. I am pretty happy with it for the most part, but a couple of times I have had the arrow pop off the string as I am drawing the bow. It only seems to happen when I am slow/shaky drawing back the bow. I'm not sure if it is something that can be prevented outside of always drawing the bow quickly.

    I believe the Pro V has the best functionality for a hunting rest out there. Rest is spring loaded, which allows for natural movement of the arrow. It stays up longer, which provides guidance for the arrow and it's easy to setup.

    I have the qad now and it is a fine rest but it doesn't provide what the ProV does .

    I have the HDX Pro: True full containment shoots great when setup, Con: I hate resetting it every shot.

    I am considering moving to the Axion pulse.
