Thread: Hamskea Versa Rest instructions?
Hamskea Versa Rest instructions?
I got tired of my ripcord code red on my Insanity CPX. I tinkered with it a bunch and still would get random fletching contact. I got a Left Handed Versa Rest and installed it last night. One of my questions is about the launcher that is included with it, the FC model. Is the wide one with large wings (looks like a smackdown launcher blade) the most suitable for hunting or the shorter one with the deeper groove? I left the large one on there because it seemed more logical for hunting, but I could be way wrong.
Anyone have any suggestions or tricks for the best way to set it up? Distance from riser, launcher angle, plastic screw vs metal, ect. I have just followed the instructions and videos from Hamskea for the basic center shot setup. I will be tuning this afternoon with yoke, bareshaft, and others. I mainly wanted to shorten the learning curve for myself by getting advice from some Roksliders that have been there done that. Thanks!
I used the larger one when I had this rest on my bow... Used it until I couldn't get the fletching contact to go away...

Same here. Couldn't get rid of contact until I switched to the longer launcher. Accuglide I think.
I'm still playing with it and tinkering. The wide launcher seems to work fine but I am going to continue to experiment. I am having issues with this Insanity CPX and the limb driven cable. Not sure of the sweet spot on the cable.
Had to go with the deep groove launcher due to fetching contact. LOVE my versarest. I also use the arrow clip in the front of the rest and the little rubber rest on the back to minimize noise. Best rest I've ever had.
Love me the hamskea rest. I use the small prong launcher. Easy to
Tune rest and bombproof as it gets.The history of the bow and arrow is the history of mankind.

If you're having any issues with the vane contact issues with the flat wide full containment launcher, make sure the halo chord is wrapped around the pressure screw of the lever arm on the "inside" position. That is position that makes the chord closest to the center of the shaft. The further away the chord is from the center of the shaft, the slower the rest is.
