    Arrow rests

    What are our thoughts on arrow rests?
    Many and varied I am sure.

    In my earlier years I was quite taken with the simplicity of the Hoyt Super Pro nylon rest, I still am!

    Having closely watched high speed videos of arrows and rests it is clear that the arrow is nowhere near the rest when its tail end passes the button.
    Why therefore do many of us use spring loaded rests (some with a collapsible hinge piece)?

    I am not going to get into poor releases or the forgiving nature of springs although I am sure others will.

    I am going to propose that fixed/solid rests are the ideal equipment to be using.

    I start this thread with a purpose to be releavled later in the discussing.
