    I'm looking to upgrade my whisker biscuit and was interested in the NAP line. Anyone have them, shoot em' and if so which model can you recommend? Thanks.

    I just bought the apache. And setup only took a few minutes. I like the no tool adjustment. The only thing that took a while to get used to is with the full containment I have to slide the arrow from the back through the rest then hook to my d loop. Before I could hook my d loop first then set the arrow on the rest. But the speed of the drop and how quite it is makes up for that. Also like the full containment a lot.

    I had 3 QADs, all had issues, no thanks.

    I have 2 Ripcord Code Reds, very nice but not silent. Not close to as load as the QADs though.

    I have a NAP Carbon Apache, no issues. The best I have tried. Very quiet or silent. I like the fact you can adjust the cord length without removing it from the cable. The top loading feature is nice. My next rest will most likely be a Carbon Apache. BUT if it would be on my strictly hunting bow I will probably put on the WB.

    The carbon apache is better than the original nap apache rest. In my opinion its just Easier to load arrows inn it. Plus its only like 4 oz weightlessness

    I went from the whisker biscuit to the NAP apache and I really like it. I can't compare it to anything else because I've never used another drop away but so far I like it a lot.

    I have both the Apache and QAD HDX...love the both. The Apache is a sweet rest IMO, I might like it a little better. I have two of the Apache's. I have one in Lost Camo I'd probably sale if you would be interested. It the regular Apache.
