Old bow was a mathews vx-pro with biscuit and gold tip arrows (xt)... never had a problem with any of it, but it was old and LOUD. My new set up is a Diamond Marquis with a Hostage pro rest and Carbon Express Maxima Hunter arrows with Blazer vanes (weight forward arrows)... I don't know about the whole weight forward thing, but these things fly STRAIGHT! They are every bit as accurate as Gold Tip XT with helical feathers. The Hostage pro rest is awesome!. This thing has no fletching contact and is absolutely silent. Don't get the standard Hostage, though... it has to be the PRO... the standard isn't wide enough to clear Blazer vanes.
I've heard the QAD drop away is nice and the new G5 is good, but I don't have any experience with drop aways... they just scare me.
