    There is no NAAG. That got changed sometime in 2004 when the infamous Escalade Sports ceased making Golden Eagle bows. At that time they changed the name to "Fred Bear Equipment Company". Wh know what it is now? Carolina Trophy Bear???

    Frankly, I think the last really top notch bow that they made was the Tamerlane and ther Alaskan. Since then they've been mediocre. And by buying TR they're just reinforcing my thoughts.

    Actually the new Fred Bear bows are supposed to be very very good. I think Escalade has realized that their is some compteition in the archery market and a LOT of money to be made so they are stepping it up a bit.

    I like Trophy Ridge, their drops are great, very solid and I never had a problem with mine. I love my CAP WB as well so I have no complaints.

  20. The kits addressed the problem as far as I know - but I have not had a problem with mine....but I do have a kit at home if I need it.

    Any product that has moveable part obviously has a greater chance to develop problems, especially as time goes on and these parts start to wear...

    Think about it though - the Drop Zone is one of, if not the most popular drop away rests out htere - has been going strong for many years....there are literally hundreds of thousands of them out there.......I think having a kit available to keep them in tip top shape if awesome! Even if you had to pay for it - it would be cheaper than buying a new rest. :amen:
