    Have not tried it but if fall-away rest are so good then i think this one would be even better. I believe that a fall away has a small amount of contact at the very beginning of release. i would think this rest would not have any. If you try it let us know what you think. :?:

    LOL The reason I’ve put up this post is because I have no previous experience with any rests, ordered a Drenalin but want to know if this would be worth while to get with my new bow or if it would be a waste of money :)

    So any input would be very much appreciated :)

    Also tbolden thx for your feedback already it would make sense that if there is no contact whatsoever there wil be nothing interfering with the flight of the arrow from release, my only consern is how long would that magnet last and by the looks of things I wil have to cut my arrows also the magnet inlay into the arrows needs to be ordered according to arrow size lol

    So there is my next problem what arrows should i get lol

    Damn I hate being new at things and having to ask so many stupid questions :oops:

    I thought the rest was a great thing at first…….but I read that they had a lot of problems at first…….looks like they redesigned their insert and looks very promising. I prefer the TR drop zone though………..since I shoot Axis ST arrows and they use the H.I.T. inserts which are pretty different than what they show [=}=]

    IMO, there are drop aways that work better without having to alter your arrow (the magnet will change your FOC). [=}=]

    OK let me ask this, seeing as I am just starting out now, is it better to just get a normal rest for now to get used to my bow and then later look at this or a dropaway?

    I personally would go with a drop away rest for your first. I have a trophy taker shaky hunter that i am happy with. That air rest i think is junk. the arrow has to stabilize when you first draw back and then there still looks like you could have contact with fletching. I bet it won’t last long at all. don’t waste your money on it and go with something reliable. Hey i for one usually go for new gadgets but i would not touch this one with 10 hoyts :D

    Not at alll, just get a quality drop away now.

    Many to choose from, everyone has their opinion, mine is the Trophy Taker/Shakey Hunter.

    I agree…they may be a bit louder when they drop, but they are easy to tune and work great too!

    I have tested them, neat concept but there are some issue IMO, if you creep or overdraw the sligtest amount the arrow slams down on the rest with a loud crack due to the strong magnets that reverse polarity and atract rather than oppose (hold the insert up). Not to mention you arrows will grab anything metallic and the increased weight/cost of the magnetic inserts you must use.

    Clatter, Clatter, Bang, Bang! What happens when you enter an anti-magnetic zone??? Remember when they use to say don’t trust a compass in the Mountains, magnetic forces can mess it up. [-( [-(
