    I agree with drbowhunter. I have been shooting QADs for about 4 years. I really liked the concept of this rest after seeing a prototype back in October. I bought one and installed it last night. It was worth it.

    The setup was very simple since you don't have to try to tune the timing of the drop. It is completely silent, and paper tuned on my Carnage with only 2 minor adjustments. Maybe 30 minutes from being in the package to being on the bow and paper-tuned.

    Pictures, i know this is a pain, but could someone take 3 pictures. 1 each of the clearance around the arrow shaft and the back containment arm at rest and full draw. The third, even more of a pain if your all set-up, move the rests as far forward as it will go and still clear the arrow shelf as it rotates, arrow shaft going through the center of the berger hole. Thanks in advance.

    I would like to see pictures of this rest in a real setup, I mean does it only hold the arrow level? I know most nock pts are slightly higher than level so I'd like to see how this rest sets up in the real world. Any pics would be great! thanks.

    At full draw the arrow is level but nock is slightly higher not at full draw.

    I really like the look of this rest, and was looking for a drop away to replace my biscuits, without breaking my pocket book. I ordered one for each bow, interested to see how they work out.

    2 questions if anyone can answer, will it fit on a vendetta xs and will it hit fletching (3" fusions or 4" duravanes) on the shorter brace heights?

    I went over and looked at several reviews and videos on the TR Revolution and it looked like it just might be a "revolution" design. I never did hear them say if it was imperative that you locked it. Can you shoot it without the lock bar coming up?

    Guys, for those of you shooting this rest, are you still happy with it and have you had any issues with it? Im seriously thinking about swapping out my QAD to try one of these to get good vane clearance. How hard is it to set up? I would think it would be difficult as you cannot get a bow square in it to adjust knock height. Are the directions easy to follow? Thanks for any input good or bad

    Like i said love mine easy to tune. Took about 5 shots to get it hitting dead center. The directions is easy to set up. Ive put a ton of arrows through it with no failures. You can pre-cock it or just pull your string back & it will cock it back automatic. HERES SOME PICS OF IT ON MY BOW.

    Ok, I got mine, and set it up on my Maxxis 31. It set up fast and easy. I got perfect bullet holes through paper at 7-20 yards...but I do have a small amount of fletching contact on the bottom side. It doesn't seem to affect the arrow, as I said it shoots bullet holes through paper. Not sure how that works, but I kid you not. I moved the rest down/nock up, but all that did was give me a tail high tear. Not sure if it stopped the contact, as it didn't take long to figure out that the arrow was coming out funky. I have no clue how to get the contact to stop, or if I should even worry about it, since it is shooting really well.

    I also got the one on my Diamond Marquis on and set up, really easy set up...haven't shot it yet to see if the problem is the same.

    From what Ive read, the launcher arm is plastic. What vanes are you using that you are getting clearance issues?

    I just bought one today to replace the Hostage XL rest on my Assassin as the brushes were pretty loose after a few hundred arrows. Amazing improvement- my groups shrank to about 1/2 the size as the best groups with the Hostage. Even Robin Hooded my first arrow today! Works great very quiet and easy to load. The arm actually has a rubber coating on it and is non magnetic, but is somewhat flexible, maybe aluminum or plastic? As the price is very similar, I wish Bowtech would include this in the RAK package instead.

    Have you tried changing the orientation of your vanes?

    Well I ordered a vapour trail limbdriver pro V but was shipped the trophy ridge revolution rest instead. After reading the review I think I may keep the rest. Even though I paid more than I should have. Maybe it was a good mistake. Thanks for the review.

    Where are you guys buying these? Eagle Archery seems to be the cheapest at 62 dollars, does that sound about right for a micro adjust
