Default New rest opinion needed!

I have a Trophy Taker on my AR31 and for some reason i keep thinking about putting a Trophy Ridge Dropzone on it.The only problem i have with my TT is if i draw to quickly the arrow jumps off the rest. Any pros or cons about switching rests? Please help..........[/align]

I would try a new rest but keep the TT until you are sure what one you want to use.

Drop Zone is a good rest. I currently shoot one, but will soon be changing to the biscuit. Anyway, no worry of the arrow falling off while drawing, the rest moves straight up, straight down, is long gone by the time the fletching gets there, and it doesn't land on the shelf of your bow. That's the biggest problem I have w/ the TT.....no way I wanted that thing landing on the shelf of my beloved UltraTec. No way, moleskin or not.

Quit drawing quickly; animals will see that. Draw like you hunt. You just need more practice with it. Trophy Takers are great and I have had one for 4 years and they are dependable, quiet, and accurate.

If you are having problems with your arrow falling off a TT, it is probably because of your pre-shot sequence, or because of the way you have your release attached to the string (i.e. loop, or nock points, etc).

The TT is a good rest,iuse to have the Shakey hunter on my hunting rig and i had zero problems with setup and the way it performed. I just couldn't seem to get it quite enough for my liking no matter how much silencing material i put on the shelf for the launcher to land on so i sold it. I agree with Rick in that it sounds like the problem may be with your pre shot sequence or maybe you're pulling to much poundage.

I do just what you described, i practice in the backyard and hunt and if you do decide to try something else don't overlook thenew redesigned GKF Mirage.I personally think there's better rest out there for target shootingbut the Mirage is myrest of choice for huntingandthe only one i'll use on my hunting bow period. It's quite on the draw and the shot which is a must to me in a hunting rest and it also has great arrow containment. It'sa breeze to set up and tune and once it's set it stays put.Another thing i like is the fact that itwillcapture the arrowand center it when you draw no matter where it's at on the bow shelf so youcan stay focused on the shot itself. It's a very solidbuilt rest and an awesome hunting rest IMO!

I like my TT, and actually trimmed the launch arm of the shaky hunter before they recently came out with the smaller arm. I haven't had any problems, don't have to adjust it, and it just works. No problems here.

Are you pulling too much weight by-chance, or is the valley too agressive on you're bow?

I don't believe i am pulling to much poundage and as far as my draw sequence i draw my AR31 ram and ahalf perfectly vertical and horizontal.I don't cant the bow or have to lift up to draw.Ihave to really ease into the valley or the arrow jumps off the rest.I havehad mywith the TT for about 4years now.I had it on my PSE Firestorm single cam and had no problems but i have had my AR for a year and cannot keep the arrow on the rest all the time.As far as shootablity i have no problems with it.Just the draw!Thanks for everones input!
