CONCEPT and INSTRUCTIONS
Designed by Leigh Cornish
In competition archery the blade rest is by far the most popular.
It is extremely difficult and usually impossible to achieve total vane clearance with a standard blade rest irrespective of the
manufacturer and quality of the rest. Some excellent archers say this does not matter but I believe it does matter. The contact
is caused by the blade rebounding and hitting the vanes and usually moving the nocking point does not help.
The TITAN “Pretensioned Blade” ARROW REST solves this problem by eliminating rebound.
This rest is designed to be smooth and precise to adjust with large threads and dovetails.
The Teflon coated quick change blades are released by simply loosening the blade screws.
Elimination of vane contact on blade rebound.
Elimination of shaft judder and bounce when drawing the bow.
Probable elimination of blade fatigue breakages by blade flex reversal.
All bows have different nock travel dependant on cam design etc. so trial and error is the normal procedure.
Start with a nock point level with rest, check for paper tear, a 1cm or 2cm high tear is optimum, gives stability and direction to
the shaft when shot, a bullet hole is unstable and not optimum.
Also check for vane clearance using talcum powder on the vanes, a small touch on the back of the vanes is OK, any touch to
the front of the vanes hits hard and is not OK.
I recommend the nock point start at square and end up no more than 4mm above, there are some bows that are badly
designed and cannot be tuned successfully. Cable changes can also reduce paper tears.
Nocking points and serving must not be tight on the arrow's nocks, I recommend nocks, like the Easton G Nock and G pin, that do not peg , not nocks like the Easton Super nock. Tight nocks and nocking points create lift on the shaft when drawing the bow causing the arrow to jump off the rest.
