    one cam on my nephew's Threshold. It is legit. He killed a doe using it. IMO it seems a lil flimsy. It has been a year and and he is still using it.

    you wont get helical fletch through it without ripping the feathers up. straight/ slightly offset fletch with tunable knock is probably your only fletching option. it does have a lot of rubber dampening material on the surfaces. you should also cut the loading gate off of it , it will just be in the way .

    Helped my friend set up his ridge hunter which came with this rest. He had trouble with fletching clearance, and ended up with standard fletching vs. Blazer vanes. It works fine, but makes a little noise on the draw.
