I just traded a guy for my drop away for this octane hostage rest....just wondering if anyone has tried it. If not please don't post. Thanks!
thanks! thats what the guy who traded with me told me....just rotate them cause the top two don't show wearI have Hostage (non Pro) rests on all of my bows as well as on my wife's and son's bow.
Using the current variant of brushes, 1200-1400 shots are the average lifespan for the bottom brush. The other brushes may/may not wear down depending on the diameter of the arrows you shoot.
The other brushes (left/right side) generally last far longer.
I've put 1400 shots on my Hostage equipped Ross Carnivore and noticed the shot location shifted. If I shot my Easton N-Fused arrows exclusively, it would have lasted more, but I also shoot a lot of XX75 Gamegetters, which have a larger diameter and wore the brushes down a ton.
At 9 dollars for a set of 3 replacement brushes, you'll get 3600 shots out of a set of 3 brushes if you rotate them before replacing the bottom brush totally.
I like the setup.
For me, same thing... they are fine for younger archers or people not wanting the ill effects of a Whisker B... but I really prefer a drop-away - specifically QAD.I tried it for a little while but went back to a drop away. I thought it was ok but I like the Qad Ultra rest better.
