    Default Spot Hog Whammy

    Has anyone here used a Spot Hog Whammy how good and reliable are they or is there anything better for target archery?

    Cheers Foxy.

    Have a look a this post (from Dave Nowlin). According to him you should probably have a closer look at the LimbDriver arrow rest made by Vapor Trail.

    In my opinion, the best traget specific rest, is a spring steel, nothing fancy, just solid performance.

    Foxy I had trouble with the whammy holding the heavy arrow up. I shoot a 500+ grain arrow for indoor targets. the timing was hard to get right. it seemed to change day to day. I would do allot of research before I bought one. JMHO!
    I agree with Michael a spring steel style rest is on 9 out of 10 bows on the line here.
    No ifs and or buts Just maybee.

    The whammy is a good idea, that does not work that well. It is very finicky, takes a while to get working perfect and if anything on your bow changes...its not perfect anymore. Take a look at the limb driver, or any spring steel launcher and you will be much happier!
    I shoot what feels the best, who will make it this year??
