    Default Noob arrow rest and quiver help!

    I'm still brand new at this and the forum has been incredibly helpful so far, without laughing at me. I'm trying to (properly) install a Mantis capture rest and a quiver on an Onza 3. I think I'm getting there and I know it's not rocket science, but can someone please walk me through this? I haven't been able to pin down any local help -- at least not without paying for classes which I'm too broke to do for now -- so I'm teaching myself for the time being. Any help is appreciated.

    I will try to get you started...there are some basics to cover and some variables to consider. Basics...mounting of rest, on the cable rod side of the riser, under the cable rod are two threaded holes; these are for mounting the rest. Wax the threads of the mounting screw, some like to put a thin pad of rubber under any item mounted on the riser but it is not mandatory. Arrow rest should be installed to hold arrow level or slightly nock end elevated (maybe by 1/16 or so) to start. Arrow point should be roughly in line with shoot string as sighted from the string to arrow point. Arrow rest mounts to this side and basically wraps to the arrow shelf side of the riser. THIS IS JUST A STARTING POINT...YOU WILL NEED TO TUNE YOUR BOW/REST ETC. The mount for the rest will give you L/R and Up Dwn adjustment. I assume there is a nock installed on your string. Visit the Easton archery site on line. There is plenty of info on bow set up and tuning. As for the Quiver it should have a mounting bracket w/ it and a variety of screw lengths and spacers. the spacers are used to clear things like your sight bracket. You need to give more info on type of sight and quiver etc. The folks on here that know way more than me will give you better process but I thought I would respond so you know we are still out here, ha,ha... Also when mounting a quiver make any adjustments available on the quiver so that your arrows are mounted closest to the midsection of the bow and do not extend too far beyond one cam or another. This will help w/ balance and maneuverability. Wax the screws. Hope this helps a little.

    FYI if yoyu get one Hunter's Friend or the Tuning subforum on Archery Talk you can download a copy of Easton's Tuning Guide. This is a very informative guide on how to set up a bow and shows several different tuning methods.

    I consider it the Bible of archery tuning. Using it you'll also learn some of the terminology used in archery.

    Essential stuff, get it.

    SIGSALY, its easier to explain if we do this one step at a time. Starting with the rest, is it on the bow?

    go to youtube and type in bow tuning tips. There are plenty of vids that will walk you through every inch of a copound bow.

    Kenny Parson is good, and so is Ike from Ikes outdoors. The stuff from "Expert villiage" is 1/2 assed at best.

    Kenny Parson is good,
    This doesn't look like Kenny Parson. But maybe it was when he was little. Try your link again and tell me what you think.
