    Default Indoor spot bow.....trying to decide on a rest

    I am trying to set up my new C4..........

    so I have everything but an arrow rest.....I can take the CJ SCP off of my hunting bow.......I wont need it till next September....

    or I can buy a TT SS1.......or ANY rest for that matter.......

    so what are the advatages of a spring steel rest OVER a drop away......?

    I understand that a spring steel should be more solid, but will it be more accurate??

    a dropaway will be more forgiving.......or should be anyway........

    why do some guys use spring steel rests?.........is it personal preference???

    hey Chris what are you shooting for indoor......

    EVERYONE also list the rests your using for indoor......

    NOT INTERSTED IN A LIMB DRIVER.............
    I cut things up and split them down!

    I've never used one before, but have blades coming to change a PSE fall-away to a fixed blade launcher rest. I can only think that there is something to it being more accurate or bomb-proof, seems so many use them. If I did'nt already have most of this one, I'd probably buy a Brite Site Pro Tuner. The blade angle is less severe than on the TTs. He also has a new one not on the web site that is micro adjust for elevation.

    If your not getting the stainless, Keystone has them pretty reasonable.

    As soon as I get some extra cash after the holidays. I am going to be investing in a Trophy Taker Spring Steel II for my spot bow. Lizard tongue rests have been around for years they are really nothing new. The plus side to a spring steel rest is #1 no moving parts = less chance for failure. Other than that I can't think of any other reason to shoot one. I have a Whammy rest on my spot bow right now and it has been a good rest so far. But I always got that little voice saying man that arrow flew a little high or low was it me or was it the rest?...

    tuner rests were more popular a few years ago. seems TT's version has become the most popular now. a spring steel is a spring steel. I dont think there is a rest on the market of that type that is functionally better than the other.I would go with a micro TT drop myself. If I had a bow with a cable slide, I would run the cord from there. I think the Whammy stays up too long.

    You can change the amount of time the arrow rest stays up to a certain extent on the Whammy by adjusting the timing. I will say this about the Whammy rest and like I said I think it is a good rest. I put the Whammy on the bow I have now and eyeballed it for center shot. I shot a perfect bullet hole thru paper with my first arrow... But this is the first Dropaway that I have really tried to shoot.... I don't like to complicate anything more than I have too. So alot of time I look for something simple that will perform. That's really why I am going to switch to the Trophy Taker for Spots. More than Likely the Whammy will end up on my hunting bow. I like the idea that the arrow stays in the up position and is ready to fire before you draw.

    I like my Whammy allot on the Prestige. Chris set me up, shooting tacs w/ it. I don't quite understand the the thought of how it stays up too long?? It's impossible to be too fast for it at any of the speeds we shoot. It's tied to the cable and sets off the rest before the string gets there? Any how it hasn't been an issue for me as of yet. Getting 302 out of her, thats movin for a short guy.
    Be good or be good at it.

    20 yards, indoors. Arrow flight does'nt have to be perfect, just consistant. I think thats why you don't see many DA rests. If I were makling my living at shooting arrows, a fixed rest, like a blade rest with no parts to break, would be my choice.

    On the Whammy I know a couple really good shooters that think they might stay up too long also.Too much of a good thing so to speak. Spot Hoggs philosophy based on shooting machine tests is that the longer the rest stays up before vane contact , the better. the counter argument is Humans arent anchored saw horse machines and move a lil bit no matter how hard they try not too ,therefore a drop should start coming down off the shaft after 5-7" forward travel after release for maximum foregiveness in real world conditions? Im in the counter argument camp on ths one.
