    Not yet but ive only shot thru mine around 500 times so far.
    The TT that i use has very few moveing parts.
    I think its about like a fixed rest, ive had them come loose over a period of time.
    Just have to check them every once in awhile

    Couple years ago I heard of a fella that shot his and the rest forgot to dropaway. I have no idea what kind it was though. I am very confident in my TT and Ripcord.

    trophy taker has never let me down.
    as stated earlier; less moving parts = simple.

    When the GTO arrives I will probably try a a QAD rest or a limbdriver...

    Smokes, I've used a few different DA rests over the last 3-4 years and no problems. Go with what your gut tells you is right for you.

    I would be afraid of the arrow falling off when I drew on a deer with that rest....whatever works best for you.

    this one is for target archery
    I hunt with a Golden archery hunter supreme
    we call these lizard tounges and shoot em' up or in tha tougfh-V
    the bracket is called a overdraw and this one is by Martin archery do not use it on my hunting set up
    I'll git you a pic of it
    best thing about it is (now Dred gonna love it like me)
    it is only 15.00 or use ta be maybe sightly higher by now.
    dependability is tha key here. still waiting on any reports
    Not bashing boys you know me better
    just wanting to know

    Smokes, I have been using the trophy taker drop away for a couple of years now and have never had an issue. These things are durable and there really isn't much to go wrong. They're not complex and when shot with the you know what vane down you will not have any fletching clearance problems. I would highly recomend using one. I have also heard the limb driver drop away are a great rest to use but have no experience with them.
