Thread: Drop Away

I was looking to switch to a drop away rest for this coming year. I haven't herd much about them and was wondering how they performed. How do they shoot down range? Do you have trouble with you arrow staying on the rest? Anyone have any suggestions on a brand or model that I should look into??

I have a drop a way on a switchback and love it. It shoots awsome down range. I would recomend it to anyone. I am putting one on my girlfriends bow.

Check out the QAD rests. Full containment, drops only if fired and great customer service.

there are different types of rest that are better for certain applications and i have shoot most of them and drop aways are great especially if you don't want to spend alot of time tuning your rest. I love my trophy taker shakey hunter and would never shoot anything else except if i was into stalking animals, then i'd probably stick with the whisker biscut!BLIND HUNTERS SUPPLY LLC

I like my Muzzy Zero Effect drop away rest. It has no strings or springs showing that could be damaged in the woods. I think drop aways are good because you dont have to worry about arrow making contact with your rest and screwing the flight up.

i got a dropzone and its awesome. my equipment is abuse and its still shootin awesome. only thing i dont like about it is a little extra noise from the arm dropping down but i can live with it

I have a Hoyt quik tune and a nap quik tune, both with the tm hunter style prongs, i just revesed the spring tesion to push the prongs down insted of up, works great, I havent had any trouble with it falling off during draw, but you need to draw your bow smooth, I extend my holding arm like im aiming, and the draw the bow with my right arm, i dont do the aim at the sky push and pull to get the bow back... if your doing that, id look into a containment rest of some sort... or loos some draw weight... I like the drop rests though!!
