Default Air Rest?

Anybody set one up yet? Any opinions? Looks interesting. Better not have too much creep it seems. I think I will be checking out the new octane when it comes out regardless. They are trying to sell this "touchless" for 150.00.

I played with one for a while. Although it's a novel idea it needs lots of work.

I prefer arrow guidance and once you are past the steel insert,the arrow is on it's own with no support,while it is still attached to the string.No thanks.

never used one, but it looks like a gimmick to me. I bet it would work, but you would have to fool around with it for a while...

Like TFox said, there is no support for the arrow once the insert is out of the "circle".. Plus you have to use their insert.. Don't like it..

Those have been around for a good while now havent they??

I thought they looked cool at first too, but when I thought about it...I didn't like the idea....nor the price.
