I just received the camo version yesterday. Initial impressions are good. The rest set-up quickly and I had it shooting bullets holes in no time.I choose to use the cord spring combo and find it was very forgiving.I think I'm going to really like it but only more testing will prove if this rest will replace my GKF Infinity for hunting.Thus far I am impressed with 30 and 40 yard groupings.If she holds up without any sort of problems all summer on the 3D ranges then I'll proudly carry it into the woods.Like I said however,only more time will tell before I form a definite opinion.

I looked at one at my local pro shop on a Mathews Q2. The shop owner told me that they shoot very well but on some bows you have to put the rest on facing downward a little to get proper clearance. I like putting a rest on at a 90 degree myself.

Parker.... Not on a Parker... 90% ...Which bow?
the only bow we have had problems mounting a Mirage on is on some
Hoyt Tecs...The New Mirage Bars are Shorter now and the connector bar
has been adjusted.You also need a Hoyt filler plate... GKF has them.

GKF Tech, How hard is it to install the Mirage on a Hoyt HavocTec, and will you have clearance problems?

Robinhood....
We are about ready to ship a modified Mirage that will have a Shorter mount ,Hoyt filler plate and some changes to fit the Hoyt Tec bows ....You need to ask for the Mirage Tec to fit the Hoyts.
