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.

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.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.

      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL

      The Great Lakes Compact Council and the Great Lakes Regional Body are seeking public feedback on draft updates to the procedures for reviewing requests to divert water from the Great Lakes Basin. The compact is federal law that governs the use of water in the Great Lakes watershed. The compact council and regional body are accepting comments through June 21, at 4:30 p.m.  Under the compact, diversions of water out of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin are generally prohibited. However, the compact identifies limited circumstances under which diversion may be allowed. In some instances, before a diversion proposal can be approved, it must undergo review by the regional body and may require approval by the compact council. The draft updates are strictly procedural and would not modify the compact’s basic terms. The compact council is composed of the governors of the eight states that border the Great Lakes. The regional body includes the eight governors on the council plus the premiers of Ontario and Quebec. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is Gov. Mark Dayton’s delegate to both groups and provides data and water management expertise to assist implementing the compact. The effort to refine the procedures under the compact follows the states’ and provinces’ first experience reviewing a diversion request under the agreement. Reflecting on that experience and feedback from stakeholder groups, the states and provinces concluded that some aspects of the procedures should be clarified or refined. Following discussions with key stakeholders and tribal interests, the states and provinces developed the draft updates that were released for public review May 22. The updates include these changes: Expands opportunities for the public to participate at hearings and public meetings. Acknowledges the special status of First Nations and federally recognized Tribes through separate meetings with them and granting standing to contest compact council decisions. Identifies circumstances under which an additional public comment period would be offered between issuance of the regional body’s declaration of finding and the compact council’s final decision. Essentially, if the compact council views the regional body’s modifications to the applicant’s diversion proposal as substantial, the council would take public comment prior to making its final decision. The existing public comment opportunity prior to the regional body’s deliberations would remain. After considering public input received by June 21, the regional body will revise the draft procedural updates this summer. The compact council will then consider the updates and decide whether some or all of them should be adopted through rulemaking. The draft updates are available at www.glslcompactcouncil.org/PUT-DraftUpdates.aspx. This website includes instructions for sharing feedback. The public input process includes an in-person opportunity to share feedback in Duluth on June 21 at Fitger’s Inn at 10:30 a.m. Documents are also available on the regional body website. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I'm camping out on echo lake next week. Any tips or fishing info would be great.
    • brrrr
      explore with a shallow water boat, there are a few big boulders in there,and lots of gravel bars.

      It sure is.  I know you can camp on Kabetogama, Rainy, Namakan and Sandpoint through the National Park Service. For someone who's never been (or only once) do you guys recommend one lake over the others?  Sort of the "if you can only visit one lake, make sure its ______"
