Top Arrow Rests – Axion Archery
Axion’s patented Auto Rest includes an activation cable attached to the up cable or a limb to function, allowing the launcher to stay up and guide arrows longer. The power retract mechanism engages and then pulls the launcher away up to five times faster than conventional spring-loaded arrow rests, providing maximum fletching clearance, and straight, more accurate arrow flight. At the end of the cycle, the internal rotary damper continues to apply pressure on the launcher, holding it down on the bow shelf until the arrow passes completely before returning to the ready position automatically. This is the industry’s only fully automatic arrow rest, including no thumb wheel to set the arrow rest and providing full arrow containment even after let-down. It has been proven to 400 fps and provides easy arrow loading. To learn more visit axionarchery.com.
