Hi, I need some help with my Trophy Taker SmackDown Pro rest (just brief info how this rest works - the rest "wants" to stay in fully upright position itself (some spring ?), but it's forced to lay down by activation cord. It means in "idle" position, the rest lies down just because activation cord is tight. As you pull bow back, the activation cord becomes loose and rest can go up. After shot, activation cord becomes tighten and rest must go down ...)
Till now, I had activation cord attached to lower limb. In this way, rest worked properly (or I think so) - the rest starts to rise during second half of draw back and it reaches its full position just last several inches before "wall".
Although this setup worked fine, I decided to change it from limb to cable. Why ? Activation cord is attached to lower limb by metal clamp, but Bear's owner manual restricts any accessory attached to the limb (it could cause a damage of limb ?). I'm little bit nervous about this statement, so I've decided to avoid clamp at all.
Thus, today I tried to move activation cord to cable (following rest manual instruction) - to lower, upward moving cable. It works, but I am afraid not well. Simply - rest goes up too fast. As I pull bow back, the activation cord becomes loose too quickly. Then rest starts to rise up almost immediately and it reaches its full position during _first_ several inches of pull back.
I am affraid, as it goes up so quickly, it'd lay down slowly …. and I have a possible clearance issue. I don't have a lipstick or powder just now to verify. I could shot only in my garage (10 yards) but all my shots are about 5-6" above then it used to be (nice grouping, but totally different place). And _maybe_ - sound is little bit different - more sharp, little bit "metallic" ?
Now, I am not sure what to do. I tried to change the place where activation cord is attached to the cable. No difference. Still too fast up and then probably too slow down. Even the smallest movement of cable causes activation cord looses too much - it means rest goes up too quickly, almost immediately after start pulling back
Does anybody have idea how to continue ?
p.s. I am sorry for my English, but I did my best to explain what's going on ….
