Muzzy Zero Effect Rest?

I use the QAD Pro ultra HD fall away rest now. Quality Archery Design This spring I took off the Rip Cord rest that I really liked a lot. It worked great and never failed me in all sorts of weather for several years of use. It was just a bit noisy when firing it off cause it hit the shelf or padding on it and internally was noisy. The QAD HD rest is very adjustable to find your center shot and clear the fletching during the shot. It's very simple to understand and it does not have bounce back when it falls down on the shelf like some fall aways have when they hit the shelf. Actually it does not hit the shelf at all on my setup. It has a built in noise absorber making it quieter than the Rip Cord rest. It contains the arrow before you draw back or when in the locked up position so the arrow can't fall off the rest. It won't drop away when you have to let down from a full draw containing the arrow from swinging off the rest. It's one to consider in my humble opinion.

All told, they're pretty well bullet proof and still the quietest "fall away" rest on the market with the fewest parts (no internal parts or springs at all).

Unfortunately, Rowdy's experience is far too common. I don't know why. If you follow the directions carefully installing that rest should be a slam dunk.
I believe in general folks try to make the rest drop too fast. The Muzzy rest actually can be adjusted to drop too quickly. If it drops before the arrow has enough momentum to stay stable, the arrow will "dive".
You want the Muzzy to stay up for the first few inches of travel for it to work right.
I like the MZE very much. Once it's right it stays right.
