Ripcord has addressed the very reason I will only use a limbdriven rest. With a cable driven rest, the rest is on the shelf, out of the way as soon as your string has moved forward 2-3 inches. it's good that its not in the way. But bad that it isn't guiding your arrow anymore. Limb driven rests and this new sos stay up supporting your arrow until the last second and are then pulled out of the arrows path just in time for clearance.Could someone explain the point in this. I thought the whole point in a drop away was to get it away from the arrow quick.
Thats crazy. First ive heard of that. Ive had the same ripcord on three different bows with the original cord. I think i bought it in 08 or 09. I dont think there will be a problem with these.Also I purchased one of the original Code reds and the string installed in the rest required changing within the first week, did ripcord use better string on this one? If not what kind of string do I need to replace this with? Last time was like 2009 and I wasn't into doing anything myself, but the Archery shop I used then said it was common and that Ripcord recommended some kind of string and he swapped it, and I never had another issue with it. Thanks in advance
I just got mine in the mail today and just playing with it in my hands it seems WEIRD. Exactly opposite of the earlier rip cords. I ordered this for a bow that I bought off here this weekend and has not yet arrived so I haven't been able to play much with it, but I am seriously curious how this works. It seems as though it stays up at rest, which should equate to fletchings going through the launcher arm thus creating a bad shot. Only time will tell for sure but I am really wandering if it's broke or not lolI have one and it's a good rest. Lock it up like a QAD, or shoot it from the down position.
No let down feature though.
Quiet and the best Ripcord I've tried to date. I have only shot it in the bottom limb attachment configuration, but it is a solid quiet rest.
