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.

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).

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 went yesterday.  Bite was good.  Saw lots of people catching fish.

      Sorry...been posting a few pics in the Panfish section...I've been out a lot chasing crappies, started 10 days after ice out. I did the eye opener and we did good real shallow 4-6ft with jig and shiner but that one eye outing is it for me unless I go out late fall for them again.  Crappies bite has been real good...just not in normal spots...not many spawned in the shallow reeds but beds we deeper 5-7 ft in many lakes. I've been as far North as Little Bemidji to as far South as S. Lida and many lakes in between. Went out Saturday morning early and found them in 12.5ft suspended real high; used the smallest rap they make and just fan casted all around the boat and they were aggressive.  Cabbage is coming up and healthy in most lakes and they will be moving into the cabbage when it warms up. Water clarity has been unbelievable in every lake I've been on so far. Another yo-yo weather pattern makes it more challenging for sure....but search and you will find.

      Just curious if anyone else was out on the chain braving the rain sat and sunday?

      Contact the DNR if there are serious concerns.  Tournaments have to be permitted through them.  If they're not handling the fish correctly, they might lose their permit.

      A 6-mile section of the Glacial Lakes State Trail will be closed as contractors work on improvements, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
      Trail users will see intermittent closures until June 1 as workers remove trees and brush that are near the work area. The segment between the trailhead in Willmar and Spicer’s south side at Progress Way is scheduled to close on June 5 as workers begin mill and overlay work on the trail’s westernmost 6 miles. The project is scheduled for completion by Aug. 25. In addition to a smooth, new surface, trail users will enjoy new benches, improved accessibility, and paved crossings at gravel road intersections. The current 8-foot trail width will also be expanded to 10 feet. “We think our trail users will be pleased with these improvements,” said Jeremy Losinski, area supervisor for the DNR’s Parks and Trails Division. “The wider trail will provide easier passage. Plus, the smoother pavement replaces the trail’s oldest paved surface, which is now more than 20 years old. It had deteriorated and reached the end of its life cycle.” Contractors will also be replacing several culverts along the trail to provide better drainage. “While we want to make sure everyone is safe, there will still be opportunities to use parts of the trail during construction,” Losinski said. “The construction will start in Willmar and work its way toward Spicer, so small portions of the trail will have limited use. Our trail users may not be able to go all the way from Willmar to Spicer during times in the construction process. We just ask that our trail users obey the closure signs and avoid construction equipment.” Prinsburg-based Duininck, Inc., is the contractor. Construction updates will be posted on the DNR’s Glacial Lakes State Trail Web page. The 22-mile western segment of the Glacial Lakes State Trail links Willmar with the Kandiyohi/Stearns County line. The 5-mile eastern segment connects Roscoe to Cold Spring. Built on the former Burlington Northern railroad grade, a total of 27 miles is paved as the trail cuts across the border between Minnesota’s western tallgrass prairie and eastern deciduous forest.

      The four I use are pretty shallow for at least the first hundred yards, but I've never damaged my boat or prop. Just gotta take it slow and trim the motor up.    I use Isle, Cove, Garrison, and the one near the casino, Shaboshkung or whatever.
