1, my choice is the fall away rest. There is only that split second that torque on the bow would actually effect the arrow flight. ( if you torque your bow )
the arrow is allowed to flex naturaly and fall into its flight path thus giving you better accuracy. You get better speed, since there is very limitied drag from the rest being in contact.
now the prong rest is a good rest. you get the drag down the length of the arrow as it is released, and you have issues if you use off set or helical vanes.
the WB. lots of people love them, lots of people here love them but I am not one of those people. I can say that because I've owned 2 WB rests.
first one, I could get my groupings close but not dead on. the vanes took a beating going through it and there was loss of arrow speed . In a matter of a month or so, my groupings opened up WIDE. no apparent reason...till I changed out the disk. the orgianal had apparently worn out and what seemed to be over night I went from 3 inch groups to 9 inch groups.
once the disk was replaced the groups came back in, but now it was re tune the bow. month later when that disk wore out I went back to a prong rest.
I was told, by many on the forums who LOVE the WB that I there was a new one. ya gotta try that one. Ok give it a shot, purchased it and same thing. it came off and a Copper Johns Alley Cat when on. I've had the Alley Cat on 3 diffrent bows now and love it.
the only advantage the WB really gives you, is the arrow can't fall off the rest.
if you are in a tree stand, you can nock and arrow and hang your bow, and wait for the deer to come in. Pick up your bow and your ready to go....arrow won't fall off. Its up to each person what trade offs they are willing to make. Personaly I don't like my arrows going through the disks and the drag on the vanes. Practicing with a fall way, and keeping the arrow on the rest isn't that big of a deal, so I can't justify the bennifits that the WB gives for what the draw backs are.
others feel the other way :)

I'd like to try the Muzzy zero effect next generation rest on my next one because others have highly recommended it. I would guess the muzzy rest is fairly quiet too compared to the fall away hits the bows shelf making some noise. But I'd put the rip cord on again without hesitation.

However, there are plenty out there that absolutely hate them.
