The new Ripcord® S.O.S. features a delayed fall-away action. which adds stability to your arrow before the rest falls. There are several situations where this can be beneficial including: lighter draw weights, longer draw lengths, nock-travel issues, clothing interference. Triggering cord connects to upward traveling cable. Gray overmolding eliminates need for moleskin Note: since the cord connected to the cable on an S.O.S. is pulling the rest down, it prevents the launcher arm from bouncing back.

I want to start off by saying that the reason I purchased a rest from Bass Pro is because I had a gift card to use. If I did not have a gift card I would have looked elsewhere. Bass Pro has a very limited selection of limb driven rests. In fact, I believe this is the only one currently carried by the company. I purchased this rest because Ripcord had been around for several years. I thought that the features I was looking for in a rest were contained in this one. The tech at Bass Pro set this up. He gave my bow and this rest the attention any shop in town would have. I am very comfortable bringing my bow to this tech to do work. He was very knowledgeable and took a great deal of time to make sure it was perfect. When I left the store I was sighted in and everything was working great. When I got home I was familiarizing myself with the new rest. It has a button to activate the rest for full containment before draw. With no arrow nocked the guide fork would pop up with great speed. With an arrow nocked it would not come up all the way. When the bow was drawn back it would however move to the correct upright position. It did drop as it was a supposed too at release. The night of my purchase I had my indoor 3d league. By the eighth target the activation chord had pulled out of rest. That basically killed my round, not to mention putting a very nice arrow into the wood. Upon further review, this rest does not have a set screw to keep the cable in the rest like every other limb driven rest I have seen. I am not sure what is supped to hold the cable into the rest but it pulled out. As an important note. The reason a set screw is so important is because the activation chord has a tendency to stretch over time. Periodic tightening may be necessary. I prefer to tie the activation chord to the limb, but this rest does not allow for that because then there would be not way for quick tightening of the cable. You must use the football and clamp that onto the cable. This defeats the while purpose of a limb driven rest. I contacted the company 5 days ago and have still not received any response. I would not recommend this rest.

I was very skeptical about purchasing a drop away rest for my bow, but I made the decision to, and I'm very well pleased that I did. The gentleman in the archery department installed it and i took it home and shot right away with and had absolutely no problems with it. I did do a little adjustment to my sight but other than that, had no issues. Very good product and well worth the money!
