Hey Justin, Had to get up at Midnight to win my daughter some Skeleton Creek Books off Ebay lol...Anyway...I had this rest on my Bowtech Tribute for a while and it's a great quiet rest BUT the bottom brushes do wear extremely Fast!! I'm gonna say around 200 shots but as you know, 200 shots come quick...Also which are you looking at? The Hostage which runs about $40 or the Hostage Pro which is twice that??? Or Did..Maybe a little less Now But Either way, when I shot mine the replacement brushes were about $10 but I had to replace the Bottom Brush 3 times compared to the other 2 side Brushes. I eventually went back to my G5 Drop away..BTW, Don't shoot Left handed do ya? I have a New G5 Drop away in there somewhere I would give ya... New Archery Products (NAP) makes a Rest called the NAP 360 that is very similar to the Hostage and Cost about $25 to $35 if you wanted to check it out, Plus it's Camo...I will say this..BE CAREFUL!! I shot axis arrows when it was a New Bow and once the brushes wore on my Hostage, The arrow would fall between the brushes and that could get ugly, if you didn't notice it...Like my Pal bearice, I used to be a 'Have to have it!!' kinda guy when it came to my Bow but really enjoyed it more when I started just keeping it Simple!!! Heck it got to where I was doing more Bow tinkering than Hunting lol...In other words, If you have a Whisker Biscuit that loads from the side...Even losing a few FPS because of Bristle Drag...Your probably better off In my Opinion if all your after is to let the air out of a Whitetail.
