    Default Mathews DownForce Rest?

    I was looking at a bow that had the Mathews DownForce Arrow Rest on it and was wondering what you all thought of it. I have never used a drop rest before and was wondering if there is anything different or special I need to learn in using it or if it is just a different style of rest. Do they shoot as good as standard rests? I would be using it for 3D. I use a Bodoodle Pro now. Thanks.

    Default Mathews rest

    Mathews rest seems well built and looks like a good rest. I notivced a few Mathews Pros shooting them at Hattiesburg. Good thing is you can shoot this rest as a drop away or launcher.


    Of course your Boododle rest is a good rest as well.

    Awesome rest! Function and simplicity at it's best!

    Watch the 2 videos, one shows you how it works and the other walks you thru setting it up.

    Javi has got some good info on the Down Force as well.

    From all I've heard they are pretty nice rests. I will have to give them a try when the extra $$ comes around. If I had the money now I would not hesitate in trying one out.

    Thanks for the info guys. Anyone else? Just never used a drop away and didn't want to get it and hate it.
