Thread: Best drop away rest

  1. #1

    Best drop away rest

    I'm looking for the best drop away rest for target shooting and as a back up hunting bow...I have thought about the NAP Ultra Rest HD but didnt know if anybody had any problems with fletching clearance or anything like that...

    So any advice is appreciated...

    Limbdriver. Has all the attributes of the best target rest yet drops away.

    Whats up with the limbdriver attaching to the limbs instead of the cables? how does that work?

    I have a limb driver on my x-force shooting fob's. Love it.

    it attaches to the upper limb. When your limbs compress on draw it slacks the line attached to your rest. When the line slacks a spring raises the rest. When you shoot and the limbs un-compress the line is pulled tight and pulls the rest back down.

    IN OTHER WORDS THE DROP AWAY IS ALWAYS IN TUNE WITH YOUR BOW!

    Shooting Fob's you know that it is getting outta the way. There is no way it cant get out of the way.

    Great rest. Have been told it is messing with my bow and losing speed/tuning becuase its attached to the limbs, but I dont believe it.

    i don't think there is a best rest. there are many good ones on the market. i prefer a rest that doesn't have a part slapping down on the arrow shelf. i have the G5 exper ll and the new muzzy xcellerator. they are both nice rests. i had the g5 first and love it. i went with the muzzy this time because it was half the price and better arrow containment. look at different rests and pick one with the qualities you want.

    QAD makes the best hunting rest on the market IMO. Full containment, cocks in place and has no bounce on the shot. Quiet and accurate, what more could you need?

    I've not had a lot of experience with many drop aways but I'm quite partial to my Sizzor Rest. Full containment, absolute clearance, very tough and dependable. It'll be the rest I use unless mine breaks and they've stopped making them. But after thousands of shots without issue I don't know that it will ever break.

    I have used the HTM drop-away for the past 3 years and think it the best built of all.
    Looks a lot like a Trophy Taker on steriods.
    Here it is mounted on the Mercedes of bows.
    Bowman Accu-Riser I and II...Greatest built American bows of all time
    Hamskea Versa Rest, Hogg Father sight, Paridigm stabilizer.
    Scorpyd Crossbows... nothing else compares
    Zeiss Victory HT 10x42 binoculars...simply superb

    I could need a drop away that can get out of the way, that's what. In order for my QAD to clear my X-Force I had to time it all the way out to rising in the last 1/2" of draw (yes, I have a draw board to check it). What good is a rest that only supports your arrow for 1/26th of it's length of travel?

    My Limbdriver doesn't start to fall until over half my arrow has traveled. By then it's gained enough speed to stabilize and fly right. Doesn't matter how fast your bow is, the Limbdriver will work with it using the speed of your bow to move the rest.

    I have set up 3 bows recently with the Schaffer Gen II rest and each one has been a breeze to set up. The adjustment that allows for easily adjusting then length of the cord for exact rest timing is genius yet so simple.

    I have no idea what is best, but I like my Trophy Taker FC topslot. I hope to get a new bow this year and I think I will put the same rest on. I like what I see and hear about the QAD and Ripcord too. I have heard Ripcord has a new proto type in the works.

    +1 Easiest to set up, most trouble free in my experience, fastest drop for no clearance issues (I shot FOB's through it the first time with no issues), no direct connection to the string or cables which keeps everything in spec for beautiful shooting!

    I have tried most of them.

    I prefer the Limbdriver.
