    We attempted to install a drop zone on a youth bow last night. I seems that the arrow is not getting enough guidance from the rest. No matter how we moved the rest, we got a right tear.
    I changed to a non-drop away and could get good paper tears.
    I thought about tieing the drop cord to the cable slide to see if I can get it to stay up longer. But I am worried about how much pressure will be put on the cables to acheive this.
    Any thoughts?

    Seems like you may just need to play with the length of the cord tied to the cable slide... Long enough to activate it, short enough to keep the slide from dragging behind and putting pressure on the cable.

    I put a TR DZ on this Bear Pioneer II, I hd to switch it around a couple of times before it was just right.

    Are you using long vanes?

    Good catch... Vane length/height reduction could be another way of helping fix the problem...
