Drop away rest experiences

13 posts in this topic

Howdy all, just would like your input on drop away rests you've used and which ones you like, the ones you don't and why you like/dislike them. Since I'm an (Contact Us Please) I currently shoot the (Contact Us Please)-proof WB. Anything with moving parts involved usually is a bad choice for me! Thanks, later.

I just purchased a Rip Cord fall away arrow rest. I have no expierence with any of them, but have heard good things. I hope it was a wise choice as they dont give them away.

I also put a new pendelum sight on for this next year. I was going to purchase a new bow this year but I figured I needed a new boat worse.

Cooter:

I went with the QAD LD on my Switchy...I started a thread on it a few months ago...you could do a search. Its very similar to the Ripcord rest. I have had no problems with mine...its worth a look.

I am also interested in the NEW Trophy Taker XTreme. I have only heard good things about the original Trophy Takers...and the new XTreme model looks awesome. It has a new metal arrow guard...its hard to explain..but just do a search on the web and you will see what I am talking about.

Cliffy.

I shoot a trophy taker.. love it... easy to tune, and have had 1000's of shots through it and never once had a problem with it.

The schaffer drop away is very good. It's a bit expensive but it's worth every penny.

I've shot a couple different Trophy Takers and now shoot an AP Safari Twister. I love it. It's a completely enclosed rest in which your arrow absolutely can NOT fall off the rest- impossible. I found the Trophy Takers easy to set up and tune and the Safari Twister is roughly equal in that department. Cooter, I'd suggest you get one (I have first or second hand experience with all those rests already mentioned and I think they're all quite good)- the drop away rests beat the heck outta the alternatives (IMO).

Harvey, new boat? What did ya get?

You can't go wrong with the ripcord. Bought one this winter and have loved it.

I have the itch for a new bow also but like you guys other things take priority over a new one.

Scoot, I had to cut some other deals for the CEO to go along with this purchase. I dont know if you want to go to that extent to get the o.k.

Sadly, HL, I hear ya. I've likely cut some similar deals in the past as well. I suppose we've all cut those sort of deals before though! smirk.gifcrazy.gifwink.gif

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
