    Default Identify this drop away rest

    This rest is a trophy taker not sure on the model it was given to me, the guy had bought it for backup and switched to traditional. It says pronghorn on the launcher and seems to be a very solid and well built rest, it will be going on my hunting bow I plan on buying in the near future but might give it a whirl on my nemesis 35 when it gets here just to tIMAG0077.jpgIMAG0078.jpgIMAG0078.jpgest drive it.

    Thanks for the info. Anybody have any experience with this rest? Good or bad can't find much reading on it.

    I shot one for a year on my Guardian before switching to the RipCord. The Pronghorn is a very good rest and easy to setup.

    Trophy Taker makes excellent products, and their customer service is second to none.

    It's a Pronghorn Shakey Hunter. I shoot one for years. Easy set up and tuning. The only con was with bounce back. When I went to FOB for awhile the bounce back would hit the FOB. I changed to Limb Drive and never looked back. Don't shoot FOB much anymore but really like my Limb Drivers. Trophy Taker may have improved the products as I shot them awhile back.

    Thanks for the info I figured I couldn't beat the price so why not try it out and if it works ill use it for hunting. It seems to be a pretty solid rest

    The drop was good at the time I use it with vanes. I put felt down were the forks and shelf made contact, that seemed to help with bounce back. If you have issues with arrow fight CK vane contact. I could never get mine to paper tune until I put the felt down on the shelf.

    Well, how'd you feel about the trophy taker so far? I love those rests. I've got the same one I bought when they hit the market. Very durable rest. I think I like it better than the LD pro V I'm using now.
