Default attempting to change rest to dropaway

Call me a tightwad, but I cannot justify paying $50 to $100 for a dropaway rest, especially to find out I may not like a model. My cheap NAP 1000 Quicktune Pro does me fine. I know GFK makes conversion kits for their rests and cannot find the same for NAP. Anyone here tried converting the 1000 or 3000 NAP Quicktunes to a dropaway?

Reason........with the helical fletching on my Axis arrows, it looks as though it will be very hard to get any fletching clearance.

I converted a QT800 to drop away before I decided to buy one. All I neded to do to it was replace the right handed tension spring with a left handed tension spring and add a collar that fit on the end of the steel shaft so that I could attach a string to. Basically I just set it up to stop on the bow shelf on it's downward movement.

I would imagine that you could do it with a 1000 if you bought the left handed parts you needed but I think the 800 would be much more cost effective.

Did it with a Golden Premier rest. Just used a longhorn prong so it would cradle the arrow, put a slightly longer bolt in one side of the collar to tie the string to from it to the cable and adjusted the spring tension by turning the spring to zero tension and then one click further so it dropped away. No cost involved as I used all my standard stuff.
