New Archery Products Apache Drop-Away Arrow Rest
scariest purchase ever
i recently purchased the nap apache drop away rest and put it on a bear attack bow . I've shot a muzzy drop away on all my previous bows , and decided to change it up this year and that was scary because i had nothing but good luck with the muzzy. I must say so far its the best thing i couldve done ihad the rest on and paper tuned within a matter of 30 min.it took 8 shots to get it dialed in the toolless adjustments is the ticket. the only downfall is reloading but we'll see come this hunting season how many times i get to reload on a deer

Won't fit Hoyt Bow
I have always liked NAP products, but this one was a disappointment. I couldn’t mount the rest on my Hoyt bow without grinding down the edges. I after I did get it mounted I couldn’t raise the arrow support high enough, so I had to tilt the rest up to get the proper arrow height. The arrow support is very wide which restricts how much you can adjust the center shot without the support touching the inside of the containment area. The fall away action does not have bearings, and seems slow and inconsistent compared with a NAP Smartrest. I couldn’t return it since I already modified it. I am switching to a Trophy Taker rest.

With the purchase of my new bow i had been looking at online reviews and videos for this rest. My new Martin Exile came with a Mantis arrow rest, which was a little poor in quality. i went to my local proshop to look around at some rests and stabalizer, and i came across this rest. after all i had seen about it i figured it was worth the money. and i was correct. the shop installed it and i went home to try it out. With the mantis i was lucky to get a 4 inch group at 20 yards. But with the new apache im getting 2-4 inch groupes at 40. and this thing is quiet! the only thing that went wrong with me was losing one of the pens for tuning, but thats my own dumb fault.

BEST ACCESSERY FOR NEW AND OLD SHOOTERS ALIKE
I bought this rest off the manufacture's website because it was offered in camo, which I prefer. When it arrived, I brought it in to Triggers&Bows to have it attached. Brought it home and put maybe 20 shots through it. WOW, super quite and accurate. Only thing is it requires you to have perfect grip as to not torque the arrow. Very good thing though, as it will make you more accurate. this makes it perfect for new shooters who are developing their form, I was shooting a whisker bis biscuit and am sooo happy that I bought this. my groups have shrunk and my bow has quieted down a lot. once again, BEST ACCESSORY EVER!!
