I jhust finished setting another Ultra Rest on a bow. It is so simple to set up, it's pretty amazing. Just set the cord tension very light in the clamp, set nocking point and centershot and shoot it. Fantastic hunting rest. Quality Archery Designs hit a home run on this one.
The rest works as advertised but for my setup the
ZE shot better groups. Keep in mind my arrows are very short (25 inches without points) and I have a 27 1/2 in. draw. The owner of the proshop I go to has one and he really likes it. JDES900X, Is your nocking point square or are you setting it slightly high?
I think that the Trophy Taker drop away and the new Drop Zone by Trophy Ridge are quite good. Take my opinion with a grain of salt because I've only shot the Drop Zone. All my friends say that the Trophy Taker is awesome.
Hands down, the Trophy Taker wins the "Drop Away" rest duel. I have installed a # of different "Drop Aways" on bows in the past year or so. The Trophy Taker has been the best and most well recieved Drop Away yet. I put my Trophy Taker on just over a year ago, It will be on my bow for a long time.
You Nock an arrow just like you would on any other Rest. You Cock it, via the thumb wheel putting your arrow in a total capturing position, and then you Forget it. Your arrow will not come off the rest unless you fire the bow. The Ultra-Rest is the ONLY rest on the planet that falls ONLY when fired. The Ultra-Rest boasts VDT (Velocity Drop-Away Technology) , this patent pending technology allows the rest to fall only when the bow is fired. Whether you are stalking, drawing or doing a slow let down the Ultra-Rest works for you (full-time) totally supporting you arrow. Unlike other (part-time) drop-aways that only work at full draw and drag your arrows across your bow shelf, possibly allowing the arrow to fall off the rest. The Ultra-Rest offers minimal friction and zero fletching contact. Also, shoots the shortest arrows possible, up to 4” shorter. The Ultra-Rest is USA made product, with precision aluminum components and inertial rubber bumpers that offer exceptional durability and quiet performance.
