PostSubject: Best dropaway rest for me?   Sun Jan 09, 2011 12:03 pm

Hello everyone: I've been shooting FOBs for over 3 years now... been using a Dropzone rest all that time on both of my bows. I'm looking to change rests. Don't get me wrong... the DZ has worked for me... killed 4 deer and puts up great scores in 3D league... BUT... I would really like a rest that contains the arrow throughout the draw cycle and that doesn't raise on the draw but remains in a drawn up position and drops upon the release of the shot. What's out there that would work for me?

By what your saying, there is a couple of different options you have.

The Ripcord/Ripcord Code Red will do exactly what your asking along with the QAD Hunter rest. Also NAP makes a rest called the "Scizzor" which i have on my iceman. Love that rest. But all of these rest's can hold your arrow in a contained position while getting the heck out of the way upon release.

I shoot my FOBs on two different bows. My primary bow is a 2008 Martin Firecat. The other bow is a 2008 Pearson Spoiler Angle.

I'm not sure what Paul thinks about this rest but if you like your DropZone Trophy Ridge is making a new rest this year called the Revolution. I'm just not sure if it's FOB freindly or not. Here's a link http://www.trophyridge.com/arrow-rests/revolution/

You should be good to go with QAD or Ripcord. If you use the QAD be sure and install the TL1 launcher. see rest set ups http://archerynation.forumotion.com/f2-drop-away-rest-setup-for-fobs

Re: TR Revolution. Looks like a FOB shooting machine my only concern is the clearance from the cent-line of the arrow to the side of the rest housing. If anyone has a Revolution please let us know how the clearance looks.

Regards,

wow... that rest looks pretty awesome! I'm thinking it could be the way to go. I hope to hear some reviews on it from people that shoot FOBs. Do you know when it will be available?

Hi Kandyman Welcome to the team, Sorry to get back to you so late.

Sounds like you have got a killer set up going for you, Congrats. I think some pictures would be great of your rig and setup.

Thanks for posting an I hope the slowness of the board doesn't scare you away. It will pick up here in a month or so once the guys and gals get make more time for hunting season. I hope to hear more from you. We are not just here for FOB's but for all aspects of the hunt and target shooters. We are also here to learn so post away.

Once again welcome to the team,

Live to hunt hunt to live.

Will
