    Apache Arrow Rest?

    I currently have a G5 Expert 2 drop away on my bow and it contacts my fletching and lately I think it has been affecting my arrow flight and I cant adjust it any farther and its still contacting. Anyways I really like the drop away part of the rest and thought about trying the new NAP Apache rest. Has anyone tried it? Does it work good? Is it good quality? Is there anything bad about the Apache? Would it be worth the switch? Anything about the rest would be great. Thanks

    In all seriousness, I actually like my Apache better than my Trophy Taker. On several occasions I have had my arrow pop out of the top slot of the TT when I've pulled my General back quickly. This has yet to happen with the Apache.

    It could be something that I am doing differently, but it hasn't happened with the Apache.

    Does the expert II feel like it sticks alittle? If so loosen the launcher arm 1/8 of a turn and there is a set screw for it and tighten it down. Your getting friction from the launcher arm being to tight. Just a guess but it happened to me.

    I'm a small shop, and stock as much as I can. With 4 of these rest on the shelf I will sometimes runout. It only takes a day to refil, but the feedback is 100% good. I set up several the first week and very easy to dial in and quiet, non more. I have a qad on my bows, and would have put this rest on had they been out at that time.

    So far I'm VERY HAPPY with my Apache rest. I've been shooting it for about a month with zero problems. IMO it's a good solid design with little to go wrong. Easy to set up and DEAD SILENT.

    The Apache rest is a very good rest. Full containment and all. Even the inside of containment arrow is padded so if the arrow falls off the rest or bumps the side, no noise.

    The only drawback is on full containments, I like a little larger opening for the arrow to go in. The slot is in the center on the top and sometimes if you nock the arrow first and try to drop it in the slot, it will hit the sight.

    That is the only thing I do not like about it. A very good rest overall.

    I ordered one in for our shop and no one seems interested in it. It is a little on the heavy side. It appears to be a good solid rest!

    Apache arrow rest

    I got the Apache rest awhile back. I think this is the best so far out of several rest I have tried. I'm shooting it on the Athens 32 very solid rest and quite.I plan on putting one on my sons bow soon.

    Well I just went and picked up an Apache at BP today and...... man its awesome!!! I put it on my bow and after a few minutes I had it shooting perfect. Gotta give it to NAP they made a great rest thats really quiet and extremely easy to tune and seems really sturdy
    I'm going to go out and shoot it more in the morning cause its to dark out. If anyone is looking for a great drop away rest check out the Apache!

    Yep. Best rest out there for $60. And even better than most rest costing twice as much, IMO.

    Its not the G5 that your having issues with, they are a very high quality rest built for the best. I hate to say this but its your bow, its tuned improper, You need to take everything off including nock point and peep and everything, then follow the directions. Set the rest so its squared up on the riser then go and set the nock point. Im not sure on the G5 but they probably call for 5/8 of an inch above the top spot of the rest. There are alot of articles on here on about fletch conatct and 99% of the time its the bow, not the rest. The rests these days are built to work and wouldnt sell if they didnt so go back and try some of the basics. I went through the same thing for weeks before I realized the bow was not tuned right

    Well if its my nock point would I move it up or down? I would be able to move the peep and sight pretty easily but I just bought the Apache and I cant tell if its contacting but it doesnt seem to be now that I changed rests.

    Apache arrow rest

    My apache works great, haven't had any problems what so ever. And you cant beat it for the price!

    Took 20 minutes to install and adjust my Apache, a lot quieter then my PSE Phantom.
    If I nocked my arrow first then set the arrow on the rest, the arrow would hit the sight, so I removed the first angle from the top and opened the containment portion up. It may fall out if I am standing on my head now...but at least it will not clang against the sight.

    What makes it better than the Trophy Taker is there is actually a holding screw at the rest end of the drop cord so you can adjust it at the rest. On the TT, you have to tie a knot in it.

    apache

    The only thing I don't like about the apache is it's made in China.I also had trouble loading the arrow in the top slot. it was to close to my sight. but when I tried to find on the package where it was made and it did'nt tell. I later found out where it was made, so I took it back to where I bought it.

    I'll put it this way, I was very disappointed when the Apache wouldn't fit on my 82nd.
