I made another post about some vibration on my new Mathews sbxt that I couldn't seem to shake. Well the more I ponder the more I want to point at the rest as the culprit. I am shooting 4" feathers, as well as some brand new 2" rayzr feathers with cock feather up; both are making contact. I know the 4" ones are due to the little green bits of feather on the side of the shelf on the riser. I know the 2" ones are due to the left feather(when viewed from nock) being very tattered and worn after only 30-40 shots. However, it seems that some arrows will hit where I am aiming, and others will hit to the right; b/c of the feather contact. Has anyone else had problems like this with this rest? How the heck do I get fletchings to clear? Or will this rest simply not work on the narrow shelf of a Mathews switchback XT? I am not happy with the results thus far. Opinions welcome.

whammy

Archery shop pushed the rest on me when I bought my gt500.I had it one day and sold it on e-bay the next week.Installed a qad hd ld had no problems.Whammy in my opinion is a good rest just way to hard to set up perfect and it has to be perfect.

Pull the cord out of the brass trigger and make sure the rest is firing by pulling it down with your finger. I had one of the early whammy's that the internal trigger started sticking in it. They have since changed the design to eliminate this.

I had problems with the earlier design too. I have the new one mounted on my Prestige and so far it seems ok. We'll see.

I seem to be having a similar problem with clearance on with my whammy rest. I have a Martin MV2. It has very narrow shelf clearance and have been experiancing the same issue. I have had thoughts that the rest might be comming back up before the fletchings have cleared? With the narrow and short clearance on my martin if I set up the rest so it doesnt contact the riser on the downfall my arrow sits well above the berger hole. almost 3/4". If I bring the prongs down with the set screw so it can sit closer to the berger hole without striking the riser I have issues with the fletching hitting the horizontal bar. I am shooting blazer vanes they are about 1/16" taller than my 4" aae vanes. I might go back to the aae to get a little more clearance

Kbeaner, the cock feather should be down.

Both, the Whammy install sequence per the website needs to be followed with precision to get the timing correct.
