Anyone Shooting with the NAP Apache Arrow Rest?

I am in the market to buy a new rest. It is in my price range.

I have been looking on-line and heard some reviews but reviews are of new products and in most cases have not been put through the paces. I would like to know if you have been using it for like a year or more. If it has held up in the real world through time and punishment.

Thanks in advance

Hey Rottzilla,
I don't think that the NAP Apache has been around for a year yet, so getting a report from someone using it that long might not happen. Everyone that I know who have used one, though, seems to be very happy with it.

I have one. So far so good. It has a tad bit of weight over my Limb Driver. I didn't get it for hunting and the containment cage came off so that took a bit of weight off it.

Several good reports on it in AT. So far I haven't read of it not being liked.

At the moment I'm waiting on the new version Apache - micro adjustable. May be a little more money, but probably worth it to me.

As the years go by, I find I need more Micro adjustable parts, don't see as well as I once did, and tend to over correct, thus the need for the micro adjustments. So they are worth a little more to me. :)

I am using one on my pantera. I have only had it a couple of weeks but it did perform perfectly last weekend in -13F and on 2 other occaisions in single-digit temps.

I've had one on my '08 Moab for 6-7 months now. Can't say a bad thing about it. Works as well as my Trophy Taker rests, and only costs half as much. I've had it in the rain, and no problems. Haven't had it in the snow yet. Seems like a good reliable rest.

BIG time hint; You can buy direct from NAP.

Rest first. You can't shoot without it.

Just a little tip for everyone that doesn't have a bow shop close for accessories, or doesn't like the one they have close. Sportsmansguide.com. I've bought several thnigs from them in the past, and have always had good results. Sights, rests, targets, arrows, pretty much a little of everything. Not a huge selection, but good prices on what they do have.

Ehunter is right we have been using them for a while. Because prices now a days matter. :D

I have two NAP rest, one drop away and the prong rest. The micro adjust makes tuning a lot less time consuming. Good product.

+3 on the NAP quiktunes! I got one on all three Martins, especilly like the Micro 3000, mostly cause its easier to adjust that the 1000, which was'nt all that tough to tune either.
And a +2 on SportsmanGuide.com, have had no complaints on any of the items I've purchased from them and hard to beat their prices. :cool:

Thanks y'all for the 411 on the rest. I am definitely going to purchase one, and will post up pic's once installed.

I will definitely look into sportsman's guide I didn't even think to look at them for Archery stuff I always look there for my gun stuff.

I will also look into www.outdoorsexperience.com as well.

Thanks to all of you for all your input and help.

Hello.

Been using the NAP Apache Micro, on my Shadowcat. I would reccommend that rest to anyone.
