    It makes so much sense.....especially for twisting cables.

    I use to do it tha way also. started using a different method. I split the cable string and put the drop away string in bewteen. Heat the end up and flatten with a knife or any thing flat. Then tie serving on top and bottom of cable. You'll never have to worry about the drop away string from sliding.....

    Two years ago I saw a guys cable cut because of splitting the cables like this. This was the second time I have seen this in a tournmanet.

    When I picked up my new bow this year . I noticed that the string was split , I came home cut the fallaway rest string and pulled it out and installed it this way. Had it done this way on my old bow and zero trouble..

    Default Great Idea

    Wow. That is much simpler than the way I have always done it. Thanks for sharing that with me. I will do it that way now. Awsome.

    I use this technique as well. The only problem that I have ever had is that the serving around the string will slip up the cable and that will cause your rest to not rise all the way. I now tie the serving as tightly as I can and then after I get the rest adjusted, I will tie a small piece of bright serving about 1/8" above the serving which is acting as a stop for the d-loop knot. If the serving slides any I can look at my small piece of marking serving and know that things have moved.

    This is the only method that I use for tying rest cords to bus cables. It is easy to adjust and if tied correctly it stays in place. It is really nice when you are trying to tune your bow and are having to move your rest up and down. When going through the tuning process I will often tie just enough serving to hold the d-loop but also allow the d-loop to slide a little. After the tuning is finished, I will tie more serving on the bus cable so that the d-loop can no longer slide up the cable.

    I myself have always tied my dropaways in like this. Its quick easy and facilitates tuning of the dropaway.

    This is an easy and functioning method for installing dropaways. It is instrumental for those who do not have access to a bow press required for installing the dropaway using the tied into the cable method.

    This method comes in handy for those times when the dropaway string becomes damaged or worn. Simple to replace without having to press the bow.

    One additional comment.
    I have always inserted a spring in the center (or close to) of the dropaway activation cord.
    I read on the Spot Hogg website a while ago that a rubber tube like you use on the peep sight was more reliable/accurate than a cord. I thought that inserting a spring
    might be as good as a rubber tube.
    The guys at Spot Hogg seem to know what they are talking about. This info was posted long before they came out with their own dropaway.
    I'd show you a picture....but I just sold my last target set up on ebay yesterday.......woohoo
    Shot target for 30 years and just don't want to do that anymore.....

    this way works fine on pre-stretched cord but if cord stretches just a tad you start shooting low.

    Trophy Taker has been a leader in tournament drop away rest for years.

    Rock solid and won it share of major events. Good rest!

    I never tie in this manner, I simply tie knots by rounding it above and below the buss cable. But now I will try this also, want to know any specific reason behind this tie?

    Two good reasons. This way it never twist if cable twists.

    You can make adjustments to shorten as you try to get the timing right.

    Just your basic dloop knot.
