makes the Air-Rest different from the other arrow rests on the
Air-Rest is the first and only touch-less arrow rest.
Being touch-less means that upon release, there is
absolutely no arrow contact with the rest.
All other arrow rests must make contact with the arrow.
With the Air-Rest, the arrow only touches the
bowstring when at full draw!
There is no shaft contact, no fletching contact, no
friction and no noise. And
this is done with no chords and no moving parts!
Even the best drop away rests with precise tuning must
contact the arrow at sometime during the arrow’s flight.
This leads to inaccuracy, friction and disturbance of the
arrow and requires constant tuning/maintenance.
Simply put, the Air-Rest completely eliminates what every
other arrow rest before has tried to minimize.
does the Air-Rest work?
Air-Rest utilizes a magnetic insert (very similar to normal
inserts), which is repelled by the magnets in the rest to
levitate and center the arrow.
Magnetic inserts of your choice come free with every
purchase of the Air-Rest. During
the draw cycle, the arrow slides perfectly quiet in the guide on
the bottom of the rest until the magnetic fields interact and
the arrow lifts by itself with no strings or mechanisms.
the arrow fall and the vanes hit the rest?
will not touch anything when setup correctly.
You can easily test this by lightly dusting the end of
your arrow and fletching with baby powder or foot powder,
shooting this arrow through the Air-Rest, and watching for any
powder transfer from the arrow onto the rest.
You can also do this with lipstick instead of powder, but
lipstick can be harder to see than a white powder, and the white
powder is easier to clean off of certain surfaces (such as felt
or mole hair) than lipstick.
much do the magnetic inserts weigh?
weight of the magnetic inserts depends on the size or diameter
of the arrow you are shooting.
Our most common insert CI-1, which fits most carbon
arrows, only weighs about 50 grains.
A typical insert already weighs about 20 grains so you
are only adding about 30 grains to your arrow.
This added weight will give you better arrow flight due
to more weight FOC (front of center) and will also give you more
kinetic energy for greater penetration.
stable is the arrow when it is levitating?
arrow is very stable. Most customers are very surprised at the
arrow stability and with the strength of the magnets.
If you were to push on the arrow in the middle you would
see the arrow bend before it left the magnetic field.
You can briskly move your bow all around and will not see
the arrow move out of center.
long does the arrow take long to lift and “settle”?
the arrow lifts by itself without any mechanisms and cords, the
arrow must find the center of the rest before it completely
arrow can lift and settle almost instantly, or take 2 to 3
seconds depending on your setup.
Even at 3 seconds, unless you are snap shooting at some
time trial, the arrow is ready to go before you should be ready
to shoot. Your shot
sequence of finding your anchor point and sight pin takes longer
than the arrow needs to stabilize.
If you want the arrow to stabilize faster, we recommend
going without a loop and clipping your release directly to your
string under your arrow (with a cushion in between the nock and
Air-Rest is just as accurate without a loop so you can avoid the
hassles of a loop if you so desire.
the Air-Rest work on my bow?
Air-Rest can easily be mounted onto almost any bow found on the
market, including “bridge” or “TEC” risers found on some
Air-Rest is designed for newer bows with a draw stop or bows
with a very solid, definite “back wall”.
If you are using a bow without a draw stop, then set it
up to shoot directly off the back wall.
We do not recommend using this rest on older bows or bows
with long valleys and spongy back walls.
broadhead/target points are magnetic…can I simply use your
rest with my broadheads/target points?
your broadheads or target points are attracted to magnetism only
means it will attract to the rest, not float in the rest.
The Air-Rest works off of magnetic repulsion, not
