    Question Help, I want a new rest. I need advice.

    Hey guys. I would like to update my 2007 Martin with a new rest. I need advice as well as a lesson. What do you guys use? I have a mid to low price range. ( I have three kids, need I say more?) What types do Martin bows happily accept, or dislike? Drop away or captured? Any and all advice will be so helpful. Thanks in advance.

    Your gonna get a ton of different answers with this one. I only use the Ripcord, full containment drop away. The wife likes her QAD also a full containment drop away. I have had good experiences with the NAP quick tune 360 and the Octane Hostage. If you shop around you can find a QAD "hunter" full containment drop away for somewhere around $40-$50.

    Hope your Apache works out I really liked mine but after going to two shops and trying everything under the sun could not get the left tail kick out unless you seriously torqued the bow. Very easy to set up though. Put my old WB back on and am shooting bullets thru paper all the way out to 20yds with a bare shaft and three different types of fletched arrows. Sold mint on AT for $45.

    Sorry to keep you guys waiting so long. My family has been in the middle of a move and my wife was having some health issues. She's better now, so no worries.
    I finally got the Apache put on last night! I took about 5 shots with it after work today. I must say its nice. I figured I would have to make a few adjustments, but I was shooting 2" groupings right from the get go. So I am really impressed. I need to go get my new arrows cut so I can try out the fobs I bought. Thanks for all the help guys. Sorry again for the delay. Here are 2 pictures. Hopefully this ends the cliff hanger.
