Detlef Stakelback is the maker and lives in canaday. His user name is deflef123456 . Send him a pm and he will give you all of the information you need to know. Here is one of his sights that I own. Great sight...the machining is spot on. Cheers!
Best place you will see them on display and hear about what they can do is here on AT.
DS Advantage products are made by a genius named Detlef who lives in Canada, he's also a heck of a nice guy and have had the pleasure of having many conversations with.
He knows what makes his products great, attention to detail.
I'll post the pics I currently have of my DS stuff.
Another vote for Detlef's products. I also have two of his sights and absolutely love them. Craftsmanship is next to second to none. The rest's are the same and also have two of them and like Nuts&"Bolts said, they are great. You can pay more money on other stuff but you won't get any better sights or spring steel rest than these.
If you don't know Detlef Stakelbeck, you don't know enough.
I've owned a long list of the best arrow rests, DS Advantage is by far the best I've ever come across. I now own 3.
Besides all the great things listed above, this rest has a quick removable blade mounting rod that has an adjustable set pin and clamp, so you can purchase a second mount rod. Then you can have multiple blade & rod set up so you can switch arrow sizes without having to retune. Just tune it once and set the clamp and pin. Then every time you switch, it's in precisely the spot you tuned it at. This is the greatest genius about this fine piece of machined excellence. Yes to all the praise listed previous, but switching from 3D arrows to FITA and then to Indoor in minutes and precisely tuned before your first shot ... nothing else like it.
My wife's bow has the DS Advantage sight and scope. Again, simplicity and versatility put together in styĺe with machine work that is second to none.
Detlef doesn't operate like the corporate suppliers, he's an owner/operator...he's the company. I dont think he has a website. Communicate clearly, there is no online store or shopping cart. First, you have to fińd him, then convince him to sell you something specific. It wasn't easy for me to find him 2 years ago, but he is Archery's best kept secret.
I have been in archery since 68 & have had many sights & rest & the DS is buy far the best machined sight & rest I have come a cross in almost 50 years of archery. I have had many of his sights (have to quite changing bow colors) & have 2 of his rests. There isn't any better but there is a lot that you can pay more of & get less.
