    Ok, you aksed for opinions. Here's mine. It still is no improvement on the majority of other drop-away rests. It still uses a stupid cord tied to the down cable or cable slide. Therefore there is no new technology to rave about. As for the arrow sittong on a roller? Big deal. I'd still cover the roller with moleskin if I used this type of rest, which I don't.

    bfisher - tell us how you really feel.

    my guess is that you don't like it or it's just simply another arrow rest.

    Other than the roller that the arrow rests on it's just another cord-activated drop away. At least from what I see. I will admit that I haven't shot it. Two years ago I had 9 different drop aways on my bow in about a month, just to try them all out. Really, most are almost carbon copies of each other.

    You attach a cord to your down cable and adjust it as necessary. You draw the bow and the rest raises the arrow to the correct level. You release the string and the rest drops down out of the way to allow for fletching clearance. These all do basically the same thing. No new technology to speak of.

    There are two that I know of that at least eliminate the cord, but they have their misgivings, too, such as noise issues, which they all have.

    Personally I don't see a real need for droppers unless a guy is using a hard helical and/or having fletch contact issues. Eliminating contact issues is what they are for, but if a guy can set a bow up and not have contact then why mess with something way over priced with moving parts that can give a guy head aches, especailly if he doesn't know how to correct them.

    That's where my logic lays. Depending on the use there is nothing wrong with a simple launcher or even a prong or Star Hunter style rest. These have been around a long time and proven their reliability. They're simple and they work. I know, I've got a drawer full of rests.

    And "NO" I do not use a Whisker Bisquit.
