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?

No boat yet, still looking and pricing whats all out there. I recieved the ok from the CEO to go with it. Now, I just have to seal the deal. Hopefully very soon, but who knows.

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

      I'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.

      Pretty sure I know who that is. Won't mention any names tho. What did he get busted for?
