PostSubject: Trophy Taker Rest and FOBs- Avoid the dreaded bounce up!    Fri Dec 31, 2010 7:16 pm

The TT test can be tricky to set up with the FOBs. (but it will work great!) Just make sure that the rest is coming up to the full up position at the last part of the draw to ensure a quick drop and the cord should be tied about level with the bottom of the handle/grip (when not drawn back). The goal is to have the least amount of tension on the cord at full draw but having the rest 100% all the way up. Also, I like to rotate the rest bar (the bar that mounts the rest to the riser) slightly down if needed so the rest workings are as level with the riser shelf as possible and the forks should lay as flat as possible. This will also maximize clearance. If you use the rubber arrow guide/holder with the rest, please double check clearance and you may need to trim down. Those arrow guides/holder give us the most troubles.

Having pading on the arrow riser is also a good idea for any similar style rest to quite things down and cushion the blow on the way down. I like to use 1/2 wide peel and stick black velcro. Using the felt side, lay a strip of the riser shelf for rest fork to contact with when the rest drops. This will keep the rest lasting longer as you are not hitting the internal hard stop as hard and also will keep the rest from bouncing.

As most all rests, the TT rest can have bounce up and may be hard to detect. If you have plenty of clearance but your arrows are hitting low (especially broadheads), you may have the dreaded TT bounce back. The cure is to make sure the rest is set up as described above. If you still have contact slow up or speed up the timing so the bounce does not happen right when the FOB is going over the rest,

Here are two videos. First one TT xtreme with bounce that does not make contact with the FOB.
The second video is a hunter model with bounce at the wrong time.

Ok, after watching these videos for two years now, I just broke down and orderd my FOBs, wish me luck. I am a bit nervous about the bounce back on my shakey hunter rest.
