Anyone using a Shaffer drop away rest?

Recommended Posts

Just was wondering if anyone is using a Shaffer drop away rest and if you are, what are the pros and cons of it? I am currently using a whisker bisquit, but am looking to upgrade to a drop away.

I made the same switch last year and have absoluetly no regrets. The schaffer drop away is a nice solid rest and like any drop away results in a bit tighter overall accuracy (in my opinion) Its also very quiet and holds/captures the arrow really well.

I have no complaints about mine. It holds the arrow well and if you put on the prong sleeves you can't even hear the arrow when you draw. One of the best on the market. Very quiet at the shot as well.

It is probably our best selling rest.

I would have to agree...I have had zero problems with my Shaffer TEC rest. I think that for the money, you are getting a well designed piece of equipment. Not only that, but what other high end archery product can you buy, and if you have questions about it, you can call him at the shop, or stop in and talk to him in person?

What specifically is the problem?

The archery shop I work at has had no problems at all.

Schaffer makes bomb proof products. It's all I'll use on my stuff. I'm not a big fan of drop away rests however. I strive for the fewest moving parts, and it doesn't take a genius to tune an arrow without a drop away rest, even with heavy helical fletching. The biggest reason for drop away's is wanting to use small diameter carbon. Since I prefer ACC's or the old Matrix arrows there is no problem.

    • After using tea made from chaga for awhile, I am not sure I have realized any positive health benifits. I plan to keep using the chaga tea through out the winter. I would also like to try a chaga tenture. If anyone has any tips or advice please share.
    • I would look at the camera you would want and add the proper wire for that. Most new cameras have hdmi out I believe. I wired our house with two hdmi ports for cameras. You can get long hdmi cables for pretty cheap online. Also bought little adapters and mounted to the right bench and one up front. They both run to the tv. You could do a 12V outlet near the area as well depending on how your camera is powered. I would get a forced air furnace if you are planning on sleeping in it. Ventless heaters are not safe in my opinion unless you leave a window open. I would definitely insulate it well. If you cut corners on insulation you will pay for it in propane in the long run. Depending on your ceiling height I would go with a full size 12v ceiling fan.  They are nice to have and are not too expensive.  We have recessed puck led lights from superbrightled.com they are a little pricey but I like them. They have similar options on amazon that are much cheaper. Porch lights were from super bright as well.   
    • no idea who it was, i was asked to be a mod years after that in the bird forum. 
    • I would definitely include one.     I would buy whatever you are going to use for mattresses or cushions and build the bunk around that.     I like having one....     12 volt RV lighting with LED bulbs. LED hole lights.     Do you live on a lake or is this going to be kept at a resort?  
    • I was up north more than ever this fall but with the bad fall weather and being busy with other things, I never even got a chance to walk the woods. One weekend I brought the gun and orange but it stayed in the truck because of cold, wet weather. My dog is not happy.
    • The Gammi’s are good!  This is a pic of my rig.  I just run 20 lb fluorocarbon to the snap and change hook sizes as needed and run the Gammi circles.   This didn’t turn out like I expected but this pike had my rig all the way around his lower jaw and didn’t cut the flouro.  It’s the same leader I used all last year, landing up to 30+ inchers.   And what do you do when you forget your tip up?  Make the next best thing with what you have.  A twist tie and candy wrapper was my flag for the weekend.  
    • Well let's see, there were 3 maybe 4.
    • So how was everyone’s grouse season this year?    It was tough getting out this year between work and the lousy, cool, wet fall but I did get some birds
