I have never shot better with fingers then with the funnel rest. Robin Hood @ 30 yards with Alums and nocking nocks off arrows @ 20 and 25 yards all with alums through the Funnel rest....Will not freeze in cold weather either.......All my hunting bows have this rest. The shoot out may be better for release.....I am not sure but I am not changing. What is your experience? Check my review on www.fastestbows.com on the funnel rest.
