    Default What rest to use on the new Martin Silencer bow? and stablizer too.

    Getting the Silencer, 1st new bow in 10yrs.

    What rest is everyone using?

    I've narrowed down to:

    Ripcord Code Red-all metal (except arrow arm)

    QAD Ultra Pro-lots of plastic but "lockdown" feature is nice.

    And while I'm at it..what stabilizer is a good choice. Cheap is better.

    I have 2 Code Reds and they work well.Just make sure to time them correctly(which is not hard).Didn't like the fact the QAD was all plastic internal.BTW welcome to the forum.

    Nap and Sims and some decent stabs are good prices.

    I agree i have a code red on my firecat,did the qad also but prefer the code red.One thing that i really like about red is it takes very little pressure to activate it.So you dont have to worry to much about timing issues.
    Forgot ya i use a sims on my cat also.

    I've got a tan NAP 360 if you want it! I opted for a QAD on my Cheetah. I do miss how easy the 360 was to tune.... it is a great rest for fine tuning, but it was kind of noisy with my arrows. It was fine with easton st excel arrows, but the Mayhem's carbon weave is kind of noisy on rests...... but.. if you want it... $25.....

    I have the qad drop away, cant remember the model but I know its the top of their line one. I love it, got it used, probably shot thousands of times before I got it, and it still works great. I dont like the mole skin peeling off constantly, my only complaint. I use a cheap sims, cost 15-20 works well.
