    I read that. There's a guy on the BChunting site that mentioned tuning with 4" vanes or longer might be an issue. His reasoning behind this is the arrows starts rotating as soon as it leaves the string. My Pro shop doesn't think it will be an issue. I'll see.


    So, my bow arrived, but I'm waiting for the rest. Best case scenario, I'll be shooting my new Bengal December 1st! I'm so excited, I'm having insomnia.

    I have a friend that set up his hunting bow with the Mantis. He really likes it. The only thing I saw wrong with it is, the "prongs" that the arrow rests on are pretty limber. Not neccessarily a bad thing, but it's pretty easy for some arrows to drop right through the prongs, and end up in the bottom of the rest. Definitely NOT a rest for finger shooters though. I also noticed on his that the coating on the prongs is already worn off. Gotta say though, he does really like the rest.

    Very doubtful that the arrow will start to spin before it clears the rest.

    Agreed the arrow won't start spinning till the nock is snapped from the string. In that case the arrow is almost through the rest.

    I agree. Where the problem would come is long vanes and a full helical. There just isn't enough clearance.

    Personally, I have no use for the Mantis. Just me being me.

    These videos seem to support that theory. I can't see the arrow spinning before it is well off the bow.

    This is a temporary rest until I can afford a Q.A.D. HD (unless I'm impressed), but why wouldn't you choose this one? I'm fairly new to archery, so I really like to hear inputs from more experienced archers.

    Stéphane, I believe they don't like capture rests. Because most archers like the drop away rests
    Reasons
    1. no contact with arrow after release. (archers paradox causes contact on mosts capture rests)
    2. no fletching contact
    3. maximizing speed and accuracy
    and the list goes on.

    I use a capture rest and properly set up they preform very well. Its mostly preference. There is pros and cons to everything.
