Rated 4 out of 5 by OKLAhunter Great starter rest
I purchased this for my first bow and have had it for three seasons. I have shot tight groups with it with both broadheads and field points up to 50 yards. I have noticed some wear to the bristles, but not like what others have had and I just recently rotated them for the first time. I would bet a thicker arrow and straight fletching set up would have no issues and would have great success with this rest. For the issue I had you can read below:
My biggest issue, now that I have more experience shooting, is for my personal carbon arrows the bottom bristles touch my offset fletching and occasionally throwing/causing the opposite bottom fletch to touch the plastic side of the rest. I noticed this when occasionally an arrow would stray from my groupings. At first thinking i was getting worse at shooting i decided to do a close inspection of my setup. I saw green from my fletching on the plastic side of the rest, then looked at the fletching and seeing black where the bristles touch at one fletch and black from the plastic on the other. Rotating at the nock won't help due to my slight offset fletching, which I really enjoy. I'm going to try a drop away in stead of changing arrows this season and see how that turns out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by taterky Worst rest ever made!
Just like the title states, this is without a doubt the worst arrow rest ever manufactured. The brushes wear very quickly, in fact I had to replace the bottom brush after two, one hour trips to the range. I contacted the maker of this rest and they told me that my bow was not tuned properly which is why I was experiencing abnormal wear. This was NOT the case. To be on the safe side, I took the bow to a friend and archery shop owner who went over the bow. My center shot was correct as well as arrow level. He watched me shoot and there was no torque anywhere to be seen. It was all the rest. I went back to my Whisker Biscuit. This rest is a cheap attempt at a Whisker Biscuit by a different company and it clearly shows. No more of these rests for me!
