Interesting concept. I saw it at the ATA show. I haven't tried it or seen anyone shooting it yet.

I reckon it would work if you had steel inserts and your knocks tuned. The only other one I have ever saw is the one Chris was talking about he has a pic of it on here somewhere.06 Switchback XT

Have heard grouping may be an issue but I have no personal experience with it. My only concern is the natural movement we all have as we aim - I have to believe the magnets do not have a powerful enough pull to hold the arrow centered 100% of the time. I would think there is some 'wag' the arrow goes through as you move - the more you move the more you wag.Steve C

See the rest doesnt work on magnetic attraction, but repulsion. Go to their site and take a look at it http://www.air-rest.com/home.htm
Im just wondering if it would be consistant?
It just boggles my mind!
