    What is the proper or correct way to tie in a drop a way rest ??? does it always go on the down side cable ???? do you just put the bow on a bow press and put the cord thru the cable and then tie overhand tie to the cable ????? I know this must sound like a stupid question but how else does one learn. Thanks in advance for your help and support of my education.

    BIll now 65 and still finding I sure do not know a lot about this sport of ours called archery....

    Couple different ways. Either pull it through the cable, melt the end to make a ball like you would on a d-loop, and serve above it to keep it from sliding up. Or, what I like, is to serve the area of the cable first and attatch it with same "knot" as a d-loop. If you have to do any cable twisting after you just rotate it and don't have to pull it out of the cable. Use a tied nock above it to keep it from sliding up.

    I like running it through my down cable and melt a little ball on the end(after i get it adjusted)and than serve top a bottom real tight.If you choose to do this way make sure you serve it tight above or the preasure at full draw will pull it up the cable.
