New Archery Products Apache Drop-Away Arrow Rest
This rest is more difficult to mount than my Rip Cord drop away rest but I think I have it done now. I have yet to shoot the bow & the first thing is to paper tune to make certain center shot & nock point are O.K.

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.

Great rest well worth the money. Do not hear a sound what so ever if your looking for a rest that is reliable and quiet and will last your this is the one. I had a whisker biscuit and kept messing my vanes up so I switched to this rest 9 months or so ago and wow what a difference. Buy It Now!

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.
