Does a more quality arrow rest reduce friction and therefore increase velocity and accuracy?? Input?

I use a rip cord and it works great...I thought this was a thread about Releases? [drinking][drinking]

I love the drop away and on a chronograph it does speed up. Reason is the way it states "drop away" no contact.

I read a post somewhere where someone tested the biscuit v. other rests and the speed loss was not only minimal but in some cases the bows were faster w/a biscuit.

If it ain't broke...

The arrow is going across a rest as fast as the string pushes it regardless of the material or lack thereof it rides on. What the arrow does AFTER it leaves the string can/will affect speed.

i would think common sense would prevail here, but if you shoot an arrow through a whisker biscuit it would be slower, because it has constant contact causing drag. a drop away has no contact creating no drag hence faster speed. atleast thats what i think

everything ive been told is that the whisker biscuit slows down the speed.
