    I saw the vidoe of the Spot Hogg Whammy Rest. Seems like it actually works. Stays up longer to support your arrow longer and yet drops away for complete fletch clearance. Anybody use one or have one? Curious to hear what you think about it.

    I shot one during indoor league last winter it was a decent rest and worked well. I traded mine to a Hippie...:laugh: :laugh: I was shooting it on a 50lb bow with a 28" draw length ant about 245-250 fps. I didn't have any clearance problem with the rest however I have since went back to the old GKF with a lizzard tongue on my 3d bow and I am happy with it. I am kinda old school and I like simplicity as much as possible. I would say if you want to shoot a dropaway to hunt with it's a good choice, for targets the jury is still out....:noidea:

    I spoke to 5 people who have one. I called a few archery shops and got names. I am ruthless in my pursuit of information :decision: Everyone I spoke to says they are great and have had no problem and find them to be very accurate. They all said the microadjust is agreat feature. I am thinking I might get one. Unless anyone objects due to there experience!!!!!!

    Tomorrow.....takes three days to get there from NY but it takes 4 to ship back. Mathews gave me the tracking # and it says it's due to arrive tomorrow at my job. I have located a "Whammy rest" and will be driving there to get it tomorrow after work. It's in Middleburgh. The shop I am getting it from says he uses it and loves it. He is gonna put it on and set it up. He says he is quite familiar with them cause he sells a fair amount of them.
