Never had a problem with mine either. Is the cord slipping?

Is it a new rest? When was it purchased? My RipCord has performed flawlessly for tons of shots. I am not defending them, just know mine works very well and I was going to get another for a new bow I got...however if this is a newer problem I may go back to the TT.

I'd like to know if there is a problem as well.I've been recommending this rest locally to new archers,and if somethings up I should take back my advice.

Mine is working perfectly. When I first got it, after about 500 shots the string started to fuzz but I replace it with a better one and now I have more than 1,000 shots through it, not a problem with mine.
I would buy another one in a heartbeat.

P and d 54. I contacted Ripcord Arrow Rests today by E-mail.I received a response within 2hr.(which goes a country mile as far as customer service is concerned)
The return E-mail was from Mr.Keith Dvoroznak Pres.He suggests you contact Ripcord by phone or E-mail and you will be taken care of.
I have no connection to Ripcord,but I would hate a post like yours to damage the reputation of a company that makes an extremely good dropaway rest.
I am satisfied that the Ripcord made now is every bit as good as the one I bought 3.5 years and that your problem although irritating is not the norm.
When I have finally been able to wear out the Ripcord I have now,I would without a second thought buy another

Not anywhere near 50 50 I have seen lots of posts about this rest and very few problems. Love mine
Not saying yours, but if not set properly it is not going to work properly

That and the cord fraying to the point of breaking were the two reasons I took the ripcord off my bow. When it worked, it was a very good rest. I'd say 1 out of 500 shots the rest wouldn't drop for some reason. That's too many.

Switched to a Limbdriver a few months ago and I'll never look back.

Problem

I love mine and have never had a failure. Before the review section went down there were a few posts about this kind of failure. If you can pull the rope by hand and the rest falls then it's simply a length or tension problem. Some people have served the rope directly into the bow string and have rave reviews.

Good luck.

My guess would be the cord is frayed internally where it goes through the plunger (term?)! Or it may have a burr on it. It sucks to have problems! :sad:

Is the cord tied to the cable just behind rest? I have had a rip cord for a year now and the only problem I had was that when I first put the rest on, I didn't put enough downward angle on the cord to where it attaches to the cable. This wouldn't let the rest fall when locked up. The cord has to to pull down a small metal block to release and if cord does not have very much of a downward angle, it will sometimes not pull it down all the time.
