    Oneida bow with fall away rest

    Has anyone out there tried to use a fall away rest with an Oneida?
    Obviously there is no cable to tie the rest to. What about those fall aways that are driven by the actual arrow release.
    Thinking of going trying out the FOBS but have to cross a couple bridges to get there.
    Thanks

    Not enough recoil to set them off with an Oneida.

    The Free fall is the only drop away that will work on that style of bow.

    Yes, dropaways can be used with Oneida bows. I've used Trophy taker rests and will soon be using a limbdriver.

    Below is a picture of my first experiment (very rough) with the Trophy taker - attached it to the upper cam, and it worked extremely well.

    And here's a second picture:

    As I stated, I'll be using a Limbdriver soon - in speaking with Matt at CP Oneida, he sent me pictures of a limbdriver set up on a Black Eagle II. I take no credit for this - these were sent to me by Matt of a setup by another hunter.

    Absolutely they can be set up.



    Very smart setup here...

    Whoops - sorry about the picture size, guys...didn't realize they were that large.

    Limbdriver works

    Yes, the Limbdriver rest can be made to work very well on Oneidas.

    A Limbdriver on an Oneida would be a great setup. I always loved the way those bows shot, but not using a fallaway on them was what kept me from owning another one to hunt with.

    I will also say that I know that others have used drop away rests like the ripcord with the Extreme Eagle, which has an exposed timing cable, versus the Black Eagle or BE II, which has the timing cable running through the channel in the riser. The drop away was attached to the that, and from what I had heard, had good results.

    It can be done...

    I appreciate all of your input on this.
    Looks like I've got a little work ahead of me.
    But well worth it.
    I just picked up the new Black Eagle II. SWEEEET!!
    Can't wait.
    Shooting the wisker bisket now but looking for a step up.

    Well, I learned something new today.....

    I never tried that with an Oneida.
    I shoot bows. All kinds of bows.

    My opinions are MY OPINIONS. Take them for what they are worth.
