I have never been able to figure out when to set the tension on a prong rest (like the NAP QT 1000) more or less tension. Frankly, I don't seem to see any differance from light to heavy tension.

Please enlighten me.:)

Thanks, Carl

TTT

I was hoping someone knew of an on-line article or something that would explain the advantages of different prong tensions???

Thanks, Carl

Try this. Set the tension so light that the rest will not return the arrow full up. Actually, the arrow should droop a bit and when drawing the lesser weight forward will allow the rest to lift the arrow full up. Prongs don't slide well on arrows. The best way to see the "float" that prongs rest need is to look at properly set Bodoodle Conquest or Bullet rests. On the Bodoodles the you can see the arrow "float" by pushing it down and what it come back up slightly or shake the bow and see the arrow "bounce."
