Rip Cord arrow rest.

Recommended Posts

harvey lee

This year I purchased a Rip Cord arrow rest and installed it on the bow. I also added a new pendulum sight like I use to use.

For the last few years I have had an issue with consistant arrow placement on the target.

Today, I shot my bow with this new rest and never and I mean never in the last years has my arrows flew so well. I must have had some serious fletching contact with my old rest.

The deer are really in trouble now with this new Rip Cord.

Harvey, I use the Ripcord also and it is a very nice rest. I have also heard good things about the Limb Driver but it doesn't have a full containment feature, which I prefer. If you ever suspect fletching contact, spray your fletch with aerosol foot powder. It readily shows any contact.

Thanks for the tip. Right now, all is well as I have never had shots so tight.

Harvey,

When I purchased my Bowtech I had a Rip Cord put on and can't belive how consistant the arrow take off and flight of each arrow. Very impressed and highly recommended, good choice.

Another big plus with any drop away rest is you can use some radical plastic fletch (like quick spin or bohning blazer) to realy stabalize broadheads.

This will be my third year with the RC rest. For my style of hunting this is the coolest and most usefull rest I have owned. Because you can secure your arrow in the arrow rest area and actualy turn your bow upsidedown and it wont fall off is a great advantage when stalking Big Ottis. When in the stand I've got binoc's, rangfinder, rattlebag, grunt call, and candiebar all in use at the same time. Not having to worry about keeping the bow level is nice. I also like to keep my bow on my lap with the arrow knocked. Got to be ready when those deer some how sneak within 10yds of you before they make any noice. Make sure you use felt along all surfaces that the arrow might come in contact with.

Schafer rests are some of the best on the market. Of course it costs about $120 so it should be good. I also like the ripcord as it fully contains the arrow and costs around $80.

I have the Mathews convertible drop away and I like it. However I am begining to wonder how nice a full containment like the ripcord would be.

I had a Mathews overdraw arrow rest and could never quite get my arrows to all fly the same. Maybe me. Now, with the Ripcord being the only thing I changed, my arrows have never been had such a tight grouping. I love this Ripcord.

Harvey,

The overdraw rest wasn't the drop away rest was it? I sure like the looks of the Rip Cord and the Qad rest. They are similar designs. I havn't really had a reason to change though as the Convertable Dropaway has been good on my Switchback. Have you paper tuned your bow how easy was it with the Ripcord to adjust?

No, the overdraw was a two prong rest and was not a drop away. I have heard that many have had some tuning issuses with these rests. My new Ripcord I good lucky with or Cabin Fever placed it almost perfect. I had to adjust to the right a few inches and also down approx 1 inch. I had no problem making the few needed adjustmants. She shoots perfect bullet holes through paper.

Honestly, I have never been so happy with my arrow groups and all I changed was my rest. My older rest must have been worn out as the small noise or vibration thet I could not find is now also gone. I really cannot say enough about this new Ripcord rest.

      @YBOutdoors have you tried ice fishing it yet?

      I really do not do anything different.  I use red UV glow rattle jigging spoons with a minnow head under the Vex.  I use a large fathead on a lightweight, large hook jig under the bobber.

      At this time of the year they are full of eggs and forage.  Not surprised.

      Anyone ice fishing the pike river flowage this year? Main lake or narrows upstream of Hwys 1 or 77? I may go this weekend. Thx
    • Wellesy
      It was pretty "healthy" fish I would say...quite a gut on it.  I'll try and post a pic later.

      So I purchased a 23 inch SUL tickle stick this years model with the white handle ( actually I wanted a 27 inch UL and got home and the rod was a SUL but the box said 27 I’m 200 miles from the store I got it from so can’t juse return it). I got it At the beginning of this season and the very first trip out with it the paint started peeling off the tip. I contacted 13 and they said I had to pay to get a new one because it was my fault and that never happens. That rod has never been abused. I’ve still been using the rod and now about half the paint has come off. I’ve tried sharpie, highlighter. Nothing works the blank of the rod is black so hard for things to show. Has anyone had this issue?

      I use a fish oil that comes in a pump bottle from Menards or FF. This stuff makes a huge difference for my dog. It calls for one tablespoon or 1 pump per 10 lbs so my pup gets 7 or 8 pumps on his kibble.  i also try to run the poor mans humidifier (boiling pot on the stove) on the really cold days. It has been extra cold and dry so far this year though.

       Flooded,  inlet valve is not seating from being warn,  debris in the valve, or improper metering lever height. The later is what I would suspect since you've already had the carb apart.  The meter lever is the link from metering gasket to the inlet valve. This controls the flow of fuel.  That adjustment is normally level with the floor of the carb body.   An incorrect setting will allow fuel to freely flow into the carb with engine off. Or it can starve for fuel not allowing enough fuel into the carb.
