Which drop away rest?

I currently shoot a bowtech guardian at 72lbs. I am looking for a new drop away rest to replace my whisker biscuit(weakest link?). I want to become more accurate out at the seventy yard range. I currently shoot a 12" group average at 70 yards. I just want to get the most out of my setup and all the practice I am doing isn't closing the group up anymore. Any help would be appreciated.


Bowtech guardian 72lbs
goldtip prohunter 5575
100gr expandable
spothogg sdp sight
fuse stablizer

Thanks for the help

Re: Which drop away rest?

I've got a bow tech 82nd and it has a limb driver drop away rest, I shoot out to 120 yds with it. If I do my part I can keep 5 arrows in less than a pie plate at that distance. Another thing I have found for better accuracy you need to have your arrows a little on the stiff side. Hope this helps.

Re: Which drop away rest?

Limbdriver rest would be what I recommend as well. Install a SSStrings Maxx kit, and have a really trick setup.

Binary cam bows (like your Guardian) are very sensitive to cam timing. It's been my experience that other fall away rests, that have the trigger cord attached to one of the cables can affect cam timing when at full draw.

It might seem like a very small tug that those rests place on the cable, but in my testing using a draw board, I've lost up to 10% of my letoff because of a mistuned conventional drop away rest, and this slight pull on the down cable.

The Limbdriver doesn't have that problem.

Others have stated it's the most accuracy forgiving rest if properly tuned. I've gotten good results with all the drop aways accuracy wise, but the Limbdriver was the only one to give me all my letoff.

Good luck.

BTW-12" groups at 70 yards is good shooting....shows you what practice can do for you. I'm willing to bet the Limbdriver will get you even shooting better.

I shoot a Ripcord on my Drenalin. It is a great rest and I would buy another.

Thanks for the infomation it sure does help.

Autorotate, thank you for the compliment of group size, I would like to get it down to 6" before I will try the harvest anything at that range.

One nice thing about bow, I can walk out my door and shoot. I can't say that for rifle though.
