Default Trap Door Arrow Rest

I am looking for a new arrow rest and was wondering if anyone has any information on the Trap Door Rest. I have met one guy who has one and he loves it. Or if anyone can recommend a good drop away....I have used the Trophy Ridge Drop Zone for years but want to try something new.

I'll try to answer it this way. I am very, very picky about the equipment I shoot. I can afford whatever I want so price is never an issue. Last year I tried 9 different drop-away rests and ended up with a Trapdoor. I took it from my 3D bow and put it on my hunting bow. I had used it for about a year before that with no problems. The only thing I did do was put a small piece of moleskin on the launcher to assure a quiet draw.

Thanks BF. I can pretty much buy whatever, but I think that the fact you tried a lot and liked the Trap Door says a lot. I will definitely try it out. Thanks again.

I have used the Trap Door for 4 yrs+/_ . Never had it Fail! A great addition is the Dakota Arrow holder. Arrow never falls off. Good luck.

I recently purchased a Bow Tecxh Tribute. My bow shop recommended a Trap Door. The only problem is the rest is activated by vibration and the new parallel limbs are too smooth to trip it. There is a redesigned version coming out. I'm still waiting, three months now.

Which model do you have? I have the older version and it still works well on my SlayR. It doesn't work off vibration, but inertia. There is a new Mach 4 model, also. Both of these are adjustable for sensitivity, with the Mach 4 being more sensitive. Now for 2006 they have a Newer model called the Freefall.

I think I'm going to end up with a Freefall just to have one. Then I'll already have one for my new bow next year. You know, I just can't get myself to tie a stupid cord to the down cord on a dual cam, shoot thru cable system. I think that dropper rests have done a lot for archery, but nobody is trying to improve on the idea. The old companies and even newer ones just keep stuffing the retail shelves with more of the same old technology. Money is money I guess.

There is a new model trap door lr ( low recoil). I think this is the one I am waiting for. I emailed them yesterday to find out what the deal is.
