I recently bought a new sight for my bow and I found this video to be really helpful in making my decision. After watching this video, what stuck out to me was the importance of factors such as fiber optic length and brightness, strength of design and ease of tuning. I took all of these attributes into consideration when choosing my own sight, and I’m happy to say that I think I made the right decision. Hopefully this video from the guys at BowCast can help you too.

Whisker Biscuit or Drop Away Rest?

Well I’m still on the fence about both the Whisker Biscuit style rests and drop aways. I’ve heard and read a lot about each,  but they both seem to offer unique pro’s and con’s. I ran across a great video today that breaks down the three major styles of arrow rests. It gives a great overview of the rests and also made me aware of a few points of concern for both styles that I’m considering. Take a look at this video from the hosts of the “Bowcast” Podcast…

Do you guys agree with this analysis of the three most common arrow rests?



Why Use a Drop Away Rest?

I’m excited to report that next week I will be returning back to Michigan from my summer internship in New York City. To celebrate, I plan on making a few upgrades to my bow before the season. My first point of business is to invest in a new arrow rest and I am considering either a Whisker Biscuit or a fall away rest. Over the next few days I plan on taking an in-depth look at the pro’s and con’s of each. Here’s a short and sweet video highlighting one of the reasons why the drop away rest must be considered…

What are your thoughts on using a drop away rest? I would love to hear about any of your experiences or opinions about these rests before I go out and buy one of my own.
