Rip Cord

Hello fellow At'ers I have a Bear Lights Out with a rip cord. It Is shooting very accurately but I've noticed some wear marks on my rip cord and on my fletching where the arrow is dragging when the fork falls and the fletching crosses the fork. How do I adjust this?

I had a ripcord and had the same problem and it was how I had my cord length adjusted. I would call ripcord and have them explain it to you. they are great to deal with on the phone and will talk you through it.

Take care

The problem that you are having is that the rest isn't dropping down fast enough.

How do you have the RIPCORD attached to your down bus cable? If you have one of those football type attachments, you can loosen it, pull about 1/8" of cord through, and tighten it up again. Keep tightening the cord until the rest comes up 2-3 inches from full draw. It should drop fast enough for you then.

I just set this same rest up on my bow last week and went through the same process!
