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.

    • Fan of the stealth bomber look.
    • Did you shoot the rx1? If you did... what made you pick the rx3 over rx1?
    • just remember that water will follow the path of least resistance, meaning  that it may look like it is all contained to one area but the water may have been running across a beam to another area altogether.  I work in insurance and see and hear very unique situations often!.
    • I wish manufacturers would offer a truck that is "hunter friendly". 1. I want a truck that has keyless entry, so if I lock my keys in or lose them in the woods it doesn't matter. 2. I want to be able to turn my headlights off when the truck is running, so I can wait for shooting light without the high beams cutting through the trees. 3.The loud DING-DING-DING when the door is opened would not be necessary because of #1.  4. Run flat tires would be standard. 5. A handy man style jack with solid spots to jack from on the outside of the truck and 2 spares also. 6. Heated cup holder with direct wiring so when I get back to the truck after a morning sit in a cold tree, my coffee is still hot. No leaky thermos putting my coffee on my seat. 7. Winch and arm mounted to the bed to load big game with 1 hand.  8. Matte finish camo and no chrome to reflect sunlight. 9. Remote start works from over 1 mile away, or pre heated coolant so you have heat instantly. 10. Bullet holders on the door and dash so they aren't rolling around on the floor when you need them. 11. Spot light for pre season shining, where legal.  12. 4 wheel steering for dead end trail turnaround.  13. Built in heated/cooled dog kennel.   One wouldn't necessarily need all of these, but to customize the package to Hunter's preference would be great. What would your hunting rig have on it to improve your success and pleasure??
