New Archery Products Apache Drop-Away Arrow Rest
Thanks to all the other great reviews, I just bought this rest yesterday. I had looked at rests, all diff price ranges, but keeping an open mind, I saw how many people reviewed this rather inexpensive model, and I couldn't be happier. I called my local shop, which is only 20 miles away! and they had it in stock, so no waiting. I put the archery pro to work cutting arrows and installing this rest on my PSE Stinger. As soon as I got home, I had the target out and was grouping three arrows in less than 2 inches at 30 yards. If you are looking to replace your rest, no matter what you have now, give this product serious consideration. For the price it can't be beat, and let your archery pro install it, unless you own a bow press and know how to serve the string. I am just very very pleased with this product and look forward to shooting more with it.

This arrow rest has made the best impression to me and my buddies. They all want one now too. It looks great and performs even better.
This rest is fully complete in everything in advertises and I love it. To set it up you just got to have patience and do it right cause apparently everyone just wants to rip and go when buying this. If you get it set up right it will amaze you on how quiet, smooth-operating, easy to tune and adjust it is! It also has made my shooting a TON more accurate. I was shooting around 4 inch groups with the whisker biscuit and just the other day I Robin-Hooded my first arrow at that distance! The quick-drop rest also picks up the arrow no matter where it's sitting.

Gained 11 FPS
For the $$ you can not beat this Drop Away by NAP. They could easily asked $75 or more and gotten it. I gained 11 FPS and cut center like I was standing on top of the target. Can't wait to stick that Monster right through the heart. As for loading, it's a full capture rest what do you expect. Love it! I was going to spend the $129 on the Trophy Taker Smack Down and opted to save some $$. Easy set up and no tool tuning. I hunt Turkey, Deer, Cyotes with my bows and they had better look out now!!! I will be putting this on both my bows and my nephews as well.

Great Value for price
This rest works well, is easy to adjust, and gives plenty of arrow clearance.
My biggest issue is that my bow (2009 PSE Brute LT) has a cable guard near the point where the arrow rest attaches. The Apache Drop Away Rest's containment apparatus (the black part that looks like Darth Vaders tie fighter...) hits my cable guard, and does not allow for easy tuning.
I had to take it off and shim the containment apparatus with e small piece of poster board to give me just enough room to move my rest slightly right. Other than that issue, I am very happy with the rest and would purchase this rest again (if the new bow's cable guard was not in the way)
If there was some better way to get the containment piece out of the way of the cable guard, i would give it 5 stars.
