I have it and love it. I had the Octane Hostage Pro and talk about crap! Wore out the bottom brushes within 50 shots. I took it to a pro shop to see if I had done anything wrong and they had the same thought I had. I shot tighter groups with the Ripcord and I have my Cock Vane down. I missed a buck with my Ripcord when the drop away didn't drop. Alway's check your bow everyday with it to make sure the cord didn't rise while hunting and such. I made an 82 yard shot on my Buck that I ended up getting on Friday. I like the rest a lot, but I find myself wanting to try the Trophy Taker.
i shoot a ripcord on my martin pantera works great try shooting with the up and down should solve your problems. i have also heard of some problems with this rest on fast bows. look at a limbdriver rest it is a very nice rest got that one on my slayer
If you're lucky enough to be on private land and can leave your stand up during the off season you can tie an old piece of cloth or something of the sort to your stand. I like to use an old camo bandana that I have. That way the deer get used to the movement and eventually don't bother even looking up when there is slight movement. This may just give you the time to draw your bow or raise your gun without being detected.
