Anyone use these? Feedback on them? I'm thinking of getting one for my wifes new bow as she has trouble keeping the arrow on the rest as she pulls back. I'm just trying to head off any potential frustrations that might keep her from learning to shoot stick/string.

Howdy Dallan. I don't no much about that one but i have a couple friends that use the muzzy zero effect and love them kinda the same concept it cradles the arrow while you pull back and them drops out of the way on release there a little pricey about 100 bucks but they seem to work well. What did you end up with for your wife? I asume your wife is not useing a release, they would eliminate the arrow coming off the rest if there legal in your state.

Hi Dallan,
I have one on my Mathews. It totally eliminates the problem of keeping the arrow on the rest when comeing to full draw or holding draw. The new models with the notch make it easy to put the arrow on or off of the rest. There is no affect on accuracy and it is very quiet. No clank, click, raddle, like with the open rests. I highly recomend it for your wife. You might even like it yourself.

Good. She test shot a couple bows before we bought and was getting mighty frustrated keeping the arrow on the rest (first time shes ever shot a bow). I figure this is cheap insurance to eliminate a major source of frustration. Will go pick one up today.

Supposedly the new ones have finer fibers that hold the arrow so vane wear is greatly diminished. Anyway I bought a biscuit yesterday and installed it, it seems to be pretty nice. We'll go shooting a little later this afternoon (into my fathers haystack LOL). It will be her second ever time shooting a bow.

We went shooting Monday and it really helped her alot. She is still a novice to this (second ever time shooting a bow) so I concentrated on just letting her get a feel for drawing, holding and shooting. She was concerned with not hitting too close to the target but I said she was doing fine and accuracy isnt the point just yet. Without having to worry about the arrow falling off she was able to draw much easier now.

Next time out shooting we'll concentrate on consistant anchor points and once she feels good about that we'll step up to consistant releases and by that point accuracy should be sorting itself out. My decision to shoot into a haystack at 10 yards was a good one btw Smile
