Can you get a picture of how your rest is set up on your bow. That may help us to help you

I'm having the same issue, so here's a picture of mine. Pictures were taken to show peep rotation, but maybe you can see what you need:





FOB contact ripped the mole skin off. Getting lines on the arrows I'm using with vanes. I've been to two shops (one of which two different guys worked on it) and have gotten nowhere. I want to get this solved, because I really like the idea of using FOBs. Bow is a Hoyt Maxxis 31.

Hi Duts87ss Welcome to the board.

To me it looks like you have way too much slack in your rest attachment cable what I would recommend is check out this link below and if it does not help you out I would give Starrflight a call @ 888-488-4712 or even e-mail Paul @ paul@starrflight.com

I hope this can help you resolve this matter

Will

Maybe I'm missing something, but the write-up seems to indicate more slack is better.

The amount of slack required to activate the rest is all you should need too much slack and the rest stays up too long and then the FOB's/fletchings hit the rest. too tight and the rest falls too early and FOB's/fletchings hit the rest.

"it is VERY important to make sure the cord has just the right amount of slack so at the last part of the draw, the pull cord disengages the lock up and the rest falls when you SLOWLY let the rest down. All I did was put to much slack in the pull cord at first, lock the fork in the up position and pulled the bow back to full draw and slowly let down (the rest did NOT drop). Then I took a little slack out (about 1/8 inch) and repeated this procedure until when I let down from full draw, the fork was disengaged and dropped. (again, just per instructions). After all is said and done, check from full draw and make sure the rest does not move until about 1 inch of arrow travel."

I have not used this rest but have seen many set up. I know if the rest is setup properly it does work well. Have you checked the clearance with the clear FOB checker? Is the rest hitting the shelf and not lying flat? With FOB's the arrow should be 90 deg to the string instead if 1/8" nock high. I was just wondering if the rest is off center shot or the height adjustments are off. Have you paper tuned this rest. I'm just wondering not saying your tune is out.

What I'm reading is that you take out slack until the fork disengages. This leads me to believe that you can't have too much slack; too much slack the rest no longer works.

The bow was shot through paper at both shops (I actually watched and shot myself at the second shop). To my untrained eye, it looked good, but the first shop used an unfletched arrow and the second used an arrow with vanes (both were my arrows).

I moved my nock point of a bit and no longer have any rest contact. I got this idea from a post on archerytalk. It seems to shoot field points fine at 20 and 30 yards. I'll try out some broadheads next week to see how it works with those.

That's great. I hope that your experience with FOB's is an excellent one now it is working for you.

Your Broadheads should shoot the same as your fp.

Congrats on the fix.

I meant to say that I moved my nock point UP a bit. I wanted to clarify just in case someone else may run across the same problem later.

We appreciate that thank you. We are all about learning here, and if we can help some one else in the process that is great.

Thanks for the post and how much did you have to move it? I know it was a bit you said, about how much do you think?

Sorry for the late reply. It was probably within a 1/4".
