Comparing Arrow Rests

 

Comparing Arrow Rests
By Brad Fenson

 

comparing-arrow-rests-brad-fenson-1U7A6840-200x300Archers have a tough choice to make when selecting an arrow rest. Do you want a full-capture rest that your arrow shoots through, or do you want a drop-away rest that is limb driven or powered by buss cable? The full capture has no moving parts and ensures your nocked arrow is always in place no matter what angle you hold your bow. A drop-away is thought by many to be more accurate and easy to tune. There is no contact with the rest after the release of the string, allowing your arrow to fly free without any contact.

There isn’t a bad choice when you look at technologies offered today. It comes down to personal preferences and the style of hunting you want to engage in. Are you a consistent treestand hunter, or do you prefer spot-and-stalk? That might be the question that leads you to the perfect rest.

Look at the options below to help you make an informed decision.

 

UP-DRAFT LIMB-DRIVEN DROP-AWAY ARROW REST

 

A drop-away rest is inherently more beneficial for archers who may have less than perfect form as the arrow leaves the rest sooner, and therefore, you have less time to affect it. It also provides an accuracy advantage for seasoned shooters who pay attention to every little detail of their bow and shooting form.

The UP-DRAFT LIMB-DRIVEN DROP-AWAY ARROW

TG640B_NRest is a good example of a fall-away rest loaded with features to ensure consistency and accuracy. The drop-away operates on a torsion spring that lifts the rest when drawing your arrow and is pulled out of the way with the movement of the limb when the bowstring is released. Thorough design and good quality components ensure there is no launcher bounce back to recontact your arrow.

No bow press required to install this rest and instructions are easy to follow. The drive string can be attached to the top or bottom limbs, providing an advantage depending on the model of your bow, and where accessories may dictate which limb you use. The rest can be used for left or right handed shooters.

Rubber dampeners silence arrow loading where arrows contact the launcher. The rubber inserts can be changed out, and each rest comes with five colors to choose from.

The Up-Draft Limb-Driven Drop-Away Arrow Rest can provide faster arrow stabilization on a well-tuned bow because there is no contact.

MSRP $74.00-$86.00

STORM™ CAPTURE ARROW REST

One of the biggest selling features of a full-capture rest is ease of installation. Bolt it on the bow, adjust your windage and elevation to the bow, and you’re done. With no moving parts, you eliminate timing issues associated with a rest driven by the movement of the bow.

TG620B_NTRUGLO’s STORM™ Capture Arrow Rest uses adjustable brushes to hold your arrow at almost any angle. The portion of the rest your arrow sits on, sometimes referred to as the launcher, is designed to have the flexibility to ensure proper arrow flight with minimal contact. The launcher and brushes that hold an arrow are replaceable if you do lots of shooting. Reduced arrow contact means you are ensuring good performance without losing speed and accuracy.

When compared to competitor’s brands, the brushes are designed and placed to eliminate vane contact with the rest, which means less maintenance with arrows and vanes with this rest.

The brushes are narrow to help with vane clearance as the arrow leaves the rest, for fast and quiet arrow release. This rest is durable for hunting but well suited for 3-D and target shooters too.

The rest is quick and easy to install, and can be used for left-and-right–handed bows. There are five color matching inserts to customize your arrow rest.

MSRP $49.00 black only
