Default Arrow Rests? Advice/tips

Getting sick of my hostage style rest being the brushes are a pain to deal with. Looking at changing to a drop away but have no idea on which one.

Did see the NAP apache and kinda liked it, but any other ideas or suggestions?

QAD Ultra-rest would be my suggestion. Sold tons of them and never really had an issue. Total containment to boot.

I like using the head of a toothbrush as a rest.

Whisker Biscuit for hunting. Quiet, reliable, and consistent shot to shot.

No more dropped arrows from treestand.

Whisker Biscuits are loud on the draw and i think the ripcord sucks. The internals are all plastic and if you draw your bow then release the rest drops even if you dont shoot. The qad is metal components and stays up when you draw but dont shoot. Qad is a much better rest.
