Has anyone tried a magnetic arrow rest? It seems like a good idea but I am skeptical.
never heard of em.
do u have a link to it.
i dont know how one would work?
I am guessing they do not work very well because no one I know uses one but I saw it on the cabelas website. Here is the link
Are you talking about the magnetic dropaway rest that Cavalier makes?
No I am talking about the Air Rest. You can click on this link and it will take you right to the cabelas website
I haven't tried one. I dont think I've seen a review of them.
I have not personally tried one, but I have read several reviews.
Requires precise cutting length of arrow to allow the insert to stop at the right place at full draw.
Reuires you use inserts provided by the company ( I think they are heavy)
Take the arrow a few seconds to stop wobbling and center and stabilize. This is necessary every time you might bump something at full draw or move quickly.
looks a little iffy to me.
I would think, unless you are rock solid at full draw, it would not stop moving :noidea:
I saw a display, and you really have to push the thing to get it to move......
its a FAD, I think:noidea:
I think they are pretty stable from the video I saw. I'd say it would take a pretty good bump to set one wobbling again...
The problem I read about with this rest was dragging the arrow across it was pretty noisey. I imagine you could put mole hair on it though...:noidea:
I would not think that it would stabilize the arrow long enough. If the magnets just engage a piece of steel the size of an insert that's not much time for the arrow to stabilize when you release it.
I'm throwing the BS flag on that thing. I would definitely have to see it to believe the arrow flight characteristice of that thing.
One thing is that you would not have any weak FOC issues... But, if you had more wieght in the tip you would need a stiffer spined arrow to compensate for it, all other things being equal.
So is the WB.:lol: :laugh:
I talked to a fella about a year ago on another site and he said his did not work very well.:noidea:
The problem with that is shavin' the little suckers......:wave:
The problem is when you come to full draw...it takes a few seconds for the arrow to stop moving.
1. You can only use specific inserts and specific points / broadheads
2. Your choice of the above are fairly limited (or used to be)
3. You arrow must be a certain length to ensure that, at full draw, the point / insert are at a specific location.
4. It works based on magnetic fields and all them pulling equally... if you bump the arrow it will stick to one side of the rest, and it isn't easy to remove. (at least it did in the demo model i played with)
In my opinion there are a lot of much better options out there if you are looking for something simple that is full containment there are tons of much better options
+1 I agree with you.... You'd want a little more support than just the last 3/4" of your arrow.... unless there inserts are 3" long.
Wow I'm getting abused today! First Dork Fish and now FLAG? :Cry:
Is this what you're looking for?.......eace:
