    The NAP QuikTune 1000 that I have is a Prong/spring rest, not a drop-away.

    I use a limbdriver on my Nemesis (like it alot) and a Golden Key Premier on my Scepter 3. I have no need for a capture style rest, so I can't help there. In fact, if I was still shooting larger aluminum instead of ACC's I'd probably still be using the old TM hunter prong rest. lol!

    I believe I'm going to give the Code Red a try when I get my new bow, but two things are going to happen before I try any tuning. That containment bar across the top is coming off and the rest forks are getting cut down to about 3/8" high. I don't need the containment and the extra length of the forks just makes timing more critical to get them down out of the way of the arrow.

    When it comes to rests. It is personal choice! Some like drop away rests and some don't.

    1. ? Do you want a mechanical drop away? if so I would do a research on the web and look up the reviews of the drop aways. These guys gave you a lot of choices to go with. Most of them are from personal experience. But a wide variety so it will be hard to choose from.

    2. If you want a non-mechanical there are still a lot of choices too. I would do a research on them too.

    As for me I like both mechanical and non mechanical and as of now I shoot a bodoodle zapper 300. No fuss no messing around with it. It does its job and it does it well (not pricey either). I also have a bodoodle pro lite which is great for target. Bodoodle also has a drop away rest as well, they are pricey but excellent rests.
    Here is a link to a drop away.

    One thing I do know Bodoodle was one of the best rests out there till they went bankrupt. Now they are making a come back.

    Oh btw I am not promoting Bodoodle! Like you if I were to choose a drop away and I was looking at price and dependability. I myself would look at an Apache or a Code red!

    Default Thanks as usual Hutch.

    I am very seriously looking at the Apache right now. I found one on eBay for $64.99,
    I've also been looking at a QAD ultra hunter on eBay for $58.89. Both new.
    What do you guys think?
