The style of rest one uses in my opinion has alot to do with what type of shooting you are expecting to do. I shoot alot of 3d and hunting both, so the drop away preforms best for me. If I was to do just hunting, I would probably use a full containment rest of some sort, or a full containment drop rest. My opinon only, but I see much better arrow flight out of just about any drop rest than the bisquit.
I have one of the newer fall away / full containment hybrids made by Tri Van....it truly is one of the best full containment, zero effect rests on the market. The only thing people who don't have one gripe about is "too many moving parts" I agree, but plan on putting this one to the test to see how many shots it takes before a failure to open, so far it's been flawless.

That's not totally true. My buddy had a really old biscuit and his arrow was falling down into the bristles when he would shoot. It caused him to miss a doe. He replaced it though and it's good as new. He should have replaced it years ago though so can't really blame the biscuit.
