Shaffer Opposition

Anyone shoot this rest? Thinking about installing one on a new bow and am curious about the pros and cons of it from users.

Must be super popular! I guess I’m talking about the XV rest, though it is referenced as Opposition in a few places.

Looks pretty cool... Only issue I question is it’s functionality when it gets wet/frozen up and long term use/abuse?

I've never used one but I've seen a few on bows at archery shoots and at the range. The same people use them year after year and transfer them to their new bows. I've never really been sold on them. I feel like there is more that could go wrong with that than some of the other rests on the market. Seems like the sliders could get dirty and hang up or start acting up when it's cold like Brule said. Of course if you're shooting a drop away of any kind something could always go wrong. All that said I have heard good things about Schaefers warranty and him standing behind his products. 

 

 I have a NAP Apache on my bow that has been great and has thousands of arrows through it. The next rest I buy will be a QAD Ultra rest though.

I've run an Ultra rest on my last couple bows and it is easily my favorite rest I have ever shot. I don't see anything on the market that makes me interested in changing at this point.

The QAD Ultra and the Vapor Trail Pro V are probably the 2 best rests on the market right now IMHO.  I put a Pro V on my new Elite only because they're made right here in Minnesota.
