New Archery Products’ Apache Arrow Rest is an affordable choice for a sturdy and well known drop-away arrow rest. It comes with many of the bells and whistles you’d desire in a drop-away, but at a price point that will please your pocket book.
Apache Arrow Rest Construction
The construction of this rest is entirely metal, making it a durable and lasting product that will do well in any outdoor conditions. It comes with felt pre-installed on the rest to ensure that every shot is absolutely and undoubtedly silent. To further control noise the Apache includes a 360 degree sound dampening pad and helps to eliminate vibration and sound at launch. The capture enclosure will fully contain your arrow and cannot be removed or adjusted. For some, the top feeding style will be an inconvenience compared to the more popular side loading style.
Adjusting The Apache Arrow Rest
The New Archery Product Apache Arrow Rest requires no tools for adjustments and tuning. Simply turn the knobs and use the laser etched graduations to guide your tuning. It makes fine adjustments quick and simple when at the range or out in the field.
However, the initial setup of the arrow rest is not as straightforward as some competitors. This rest does not come with a cable clamp included, so you will either have to buy your own clamp separately or serve in directly to the down cable, possibly requiring the assistance of your local shop.
