Hey Man, Thx so much for having the vid it helped big time! I just installed this rest on my Mathews Switchback XT. After installation I fired a few arrows and they hit pretty darn close form before, the only thing I noticed was that my arrows are going into my block on a slight angle (nock points to the right). How do I adjust this so they fly in straight? My range is 10yds (garage) and I’m sure the arrows will worsen at a longer range. Thanks in advance.

Kenny, first thanks for all the great tips and info. I always enjoy your videos. Installed my new Ripcord Code Red today, upgrading from a WB. This is my first drop away since I have been reluctant to part with the ‘ol WB. The first five arrow group through the Ripcord made me a believer. Had to stop shooting groups to save my arrows! Excellent arrow rest, great turorial. Keep up the good work!

Hahaha…I love how you said you don’t promote their products but you always keep pointing to your hat with the ripcord logo. It’s very eye catching. Great demonstration!!!

@GLOCKCOPG23 My friend uses a Ripcord Code Red on his AM 35. I use a QAD on my Firecat. Im switching to Ripcord due to vane clearance issues.

hey kenny from watching your videos i have learned more than enough to develope a passion for tuning bows, i picked up a ripcord because it took you less then 10 mins to put it on and that says simple and it does the job, and simple is what you need in the field!

I like the ripcord design, but I don’t want to pay the big bucks for it haha. Do you know of any cheaper drop away rests that are still as good?
July 22, 2011 at 2:16 am (UTC 0)
Does any body know if the Ripcord or QAD rest will fit on the Hoyt Alphamax or Maxxis with any difficulty. I heard that the “split riser” design may present problems. I’m torn between the Maxxis and Mathews Z7. Any opinions? Thanks
