ripcord arrow rests

I shoot a Bowtech Guardian @ 70lb with a 29 inch draw length. My vane is hitting the rest every shot! Is my bow too fast or can I make an adjustment?

Help!

I don't know if you intended to Post your question in the Moose Section or not, otherwise I could transfer it for you, never know, maybe it will generate a response right here.

Enjoy your stay on BGH

Is the bow properly tuned? Do you know where on the rest the vanes are hitting? If I'm thinking of the right rest, it has a bar on the top of the rest. If it is hitting that just remove it and see what happens.

I just read some reviews on this rest. The people that were complaining all complained the vanes hit on bows that were too fast, mostly over 280fps. Couple said they moved the rest to slower bows and worked flawlessly. Another said he lowered weight and it worked perfectly.

Get a fall away rest. It well be the best purchase you ever made for your bow. You'll never have the problem again.

Ripcord is a fall away.

I would say if your arrow is hitting a fall-a-way rest, then that rest is crap.

Thanks for the responses! Hammer1 I did not mean to post in moose section if you can move this that would be great.
Redrider, the arrow is not hitting the retaining bar it is hitting the right side of the drop away mechanism. Does anybody know if there is a faster drop away on the market? Thanks again for the responses!

How do you have your vanes aligned? Is your cock vane up?

CVC, no the cock vein is out to the left, and I am a right hand shooter.
