I had a hostage rest with the bristles on my bow....I was shooting 1 to 2" groups with 4 or 5 arrows at 20 yards...I hated having to change out the bristles so i bought last years ripcord. I just cannot seem to get good groups with the ripcord. Is there anything about the ripcord? or Is it that the hostage is so accurate? I would appreciate the help.
