Thread: AeroRest Update

    AeroRest Update

    I have pushed back the release date of AeroRest due to a few changes, at this time, we are expecting the end of March, 2012

    The AeroRest has went through some changes since I show it at 6th December 2011:
    1) There will be 6 mounting options instead of 4 so it will work much better on crossbow with optional mounts
    2) the black version will no longer be made, only the deep green olive as all main parts (c-Frame, side bar, bow mount, and 3 cups on the fingers) will be anodizing in level 3, or no less than 3 mil in thickness
    3) all fasteners besides the tiny set screw on the bow mount will be GR2 titanium
    4) all fasteners will be metric besides the bow mounting screw, which will be 5/16-24
    5) all fasteners besides the tiny set screw on the bow mount which is hex while all other will be TORX®
    6) the side bar of the arrow rest will have 3 sets of laser markings for easier visual adjustment
    7) the main body of the 3 fingers will be 5 mm taller to cover the spring tension adjustment screw.
    8) there will be no O-ring on the finger's main body to the c-frame for reliable and solid adjustment of arrow diameter
    9) the adjustment of arrow diameter will be done via GR2 titanium spacer which is 0.11mm and 0.44mm, reason as stated above
    10) each AeroRest comes with 6 of each titanium spacer, total 12
    11) for those who use smaller arrow that require more spacer, the titanium spacer set is going to be sell for $9.95 per 12, 6 of each which will allow you to use Easton Injection and VAP super super thin shaft when stacked.
    12) Correction on the total contact surface, it should be 0.000,000,8 square inches should be the theoretical contact surface with the arrow as ABEC#5 has a tangent of 0.000,2"
    13) the price is going to be the same for standard one which will be olive green in color, $89.95
    14) the price of the super micro adjust one is going to be $174.95 and it is schedule to be delivered by mid to late April, and be sold via our web store only at this time due to price.
    15) the mounting options can only be selected once and it need to be super glue to the C-frame once the archery decide which way the arrow orientation is going to be.
    16) The 2 parts in the main body, spring tension screw and the main body will be level 2 anodized and in black due to tolerance and give.
    17) the target weight of the AeroRest with 12 titanium spacer and the bow mount screw will be under 1.5 oz or about 40 grams

    Pictures below.

    Please note the rest alone and the micro adjust version is not update with the 6 mounting options C-frame but the older one.

    No black??? Sorry, you just lost a sale. I'm not putting a green rest on an otherwise all black bow trimmed in red. Seriously, not trying to be a jerk, but it just isn't about functionality, it has to look good on my bow too.

    I fully understand. I like that black too. But that green steel look and the absolute hardness is hard for me to say no. I am sure there are other black rest that will work and look great with you set up. I understand and appreciate the comments. A few emailed me about the screw specification too. It is indeed difficult to please everyone. But there are just so many of you and there is only so much I can do. May be in the future, I shall make a tactical black version.

    Just got the production model off the factory. They looked better than I thought and it is sure better than the prototype. I especially like the weight as what shown is the actually deal where everything: Washers, bolts and all. The standard and micro adjust ones are shown below. What do you think?

    And I got the first batch of AeroRest finished in MIL spec Anodizing. Now the last part, laser.... Seems forever... By the way, for those who knows, the finish of the AeroRest is the same as what Fuji uses on its guide, (hardloy), just it is 1/2 the thickness. What do you think? I personally think the natural color of aluminum oxide is quite good looking, not to mention the natural shades it added to the depth of grey proved a granite look to the piece due to formation and crystallization (density) of the AL when formed


    Below is our manual that comes with it, and the packaging.
    Suggestion, correction, recommendation welcome.

    Does it make any noise when drawing an ACC or, straight aluminum arrow?

    The easiest way for you to find out if the rest make too much noise besides getting one in your hand is to put 2 plates together and form a valley, draw your arrow over that. If the sound that it generate is not acceptable, the rest will not work for you.

    Dorge, I retract my earlier criticism of the color. I think they look pretty awesome. I'm checking with my pro shop tomorrow to see if they have any yet.

    This make my day. I think you will like it even more in person. That micro shades for the rest is really what draws me to decide again the black. I shall say, no 2 rest shall have the same identical shad as they are not in the same position of the tank, and the different density of the metal will give different shades too. Those faint lines are where the mould pressure points when formed thus the density is the highest and thus darkest.

    Ive really been looking into this rest. From this view, the horizontal set screw is a star type head. Do they all come like that, or do they also come with a hex head horizontal set screw? Reason for me asking is: say you use the usual Allen wrenches, am I going to have to buy a separate screw driver just to adjust the rest?

    You observation is correct. Due to everything on the rest is METRIC, the only solution is to use a TORX® which allows me to bypass thee metric and SAE issue. For your information, by using Torx, I can use smaller screws which they are GR2 titanium too. Thus lighter over all weight. FYI, the only thread on the entire rest that is SAE is the screw that go on the bow. It is SAE as I do not expect anyone to re-tap the bow to fit the rest, and it is a matter of sourcing, not engineering. As for the question, do you need another set of tools, answer to that is yes. I highly recommended the set from WERA which I have found to be the best which I personally believe acquiring one would be a worthy investment.

    Wera 967 SPKL/9 TORX BO Tamper-Resistant Ergonomic Key Set with Two-Component Storage Clip, 9-Piece
    http://www.amazon.com/Wera-Tamper-Re...6925534&sr=8-1

    If cost is an issue, you can just get a simple compound set from Lowes. FYI, you are going to need that T40 for the screw that put on the bow, or if your prefer, you can always use what you have in your archery box. And yes, you can use the hex key on the torx, just not the best and able to apply the maximum torque is it design to hanlde! The screw that comes with the rest is GR2 titanium T40 Torx which is only 1/4 the weight of what you use to use. Never rest or strip!
