Product Review – Ripcord Code Red

I upgraded to the Ripcord Code Red after using a whisker biscuit and a few other fall-aways. I was tired of my vanes being tore up. So I thought I’d give this a try. I was skeptical at first because it doesn’t stay up after letting down slowly. After getting it served in and set up at a local shop I decided to put about 30 arrows through it. I found that I like having the choice of manually clicking it up, or just pulling back and letting it fly. You can knock an arrow, put the rest in the up position and your arrow will not go anywhere.

The S.O.S (sustained optimized support) technology allows the rest to add stability to your arrow before it falls. The Code Red also offers the Arrow Containment System with a three-position containment arm. The launcher on a Ripcord cradles your arrow while the containment arm keeps your arrow from escaping. This means the arrow stays put for a more confident draw. The new Ripcord is definitely more silent than the old ones. And it has a built in brake. The Ripcord is by far a more solid construction as it is made out of aluminum vs some of the all plastic models out there.  The Ripcord is one easier rests to set-up. Tuning the Z with the Code Red was a simple, 10 second and done affair!

Since installing the Ripcord, My groups have gotten consistently tighter and my arrows last longer by using this rest and not the whisker biscuit! It has greatly improved my accuracy. After I got it tuned it’s performed flawlessly. It’s a great rest, rock solid and very easy to set up. I have shot it quite a bit since installing it and to say the least I am impressed. So in a nutshell, the ripcord looks good, drops and stays down to clear fletching, plus it’s made in Montana!

One of the biggest complaints I have heard about the Ripcord Code Red is that the rest does NOT support the arrow long enough during the release of the arrow. They say the rest drops too fast leaving the arrow shaft unsupported, causing the arrow to drop. However, I believe this is a simple timing issue. If the instructions are read and the directions are followed properly, this issue can be resolved without anymore hassle. These rests if timed correctly will support the arrow a LOT longer and still drop to clear fletchings without allowing the arrow to drop.

The Ripcord comes with a lifetime warranty. Not too many products come with that anymore. This is a great product that I would recommend to anyone! Get a Ripcord Code Red and you won’t regret it!
