New Arrow Rests for 2022

The right arrow rest will have your shooting confidence at an all-time high. Here are some top options for 2022.

New Arrow Rests for 2022

The big news in the arrow rest arena continues to be how modern-day rests — drop-away and fixed — are mounted to the bow’s riser. Berger hole mounting is going by the wayside. The Integrate Mounting System allows the user to mount various rests via a dovetail design machined directly into the back of the riser. This design promises secure rest mounting, streamlined precision, and maximum tunability. Here are some top rest choices for 2022.

QAD UltraRest Integrate XS

For 2022, QAD continues to impress by adding a new model to its uber-successful UltraRest Integrate line. Enter the UltraRest Integrate XS. Like its predecessor, this sleek and compact rest eliminates the going-by-the-wayside Berger hole and allows the user to mount the rest to the Integrate Mounting System, which attaches the rest to the back face of the bow's riser. This attachment ensures proper leveling and locks the rest securely in place with its two-part locking system. Horizontal and vertical adjustments are a breeze, and the friction-feel users get when making adjustments ensures precision and zero slop. Loaded with the same great UltraRest features QAD lovers crave, this rest is made in the USA and comes in at a good price. $199.99 | qadinc.com

QAD UltraRest HDX Nock On

QAD lifts the veil on its all-new UltraRest HDX Nock On in a new partnership with archery legend John Dudley. Designed to work with all compounds, this new drop-away offers shooters a rest that not only looks great but makes bow setup and tuning a breeze. Of course, it has proven, tried-and-true QAD features like Lock-Down Technology, Anti-Vibration Technology, and EZ-Clamp Technology. $144.95-$169.95 | qadinc.com

RipCord Drive IMS

RipCord Drive IMS

A trusted name in the drop-away rest arena, Ripcord’s 2021 rest marvel, the Drive, is back for 2022, but like all RipCord rests, is now available with the Integrate Mounting System. The RipCage, a full-containment system that locks the arrow in place for worry-free bow maneuverability, is a win, and this limb-driven rest can attach to either the top or bottom limb. A well-designed ball-bearing drive system ensures friction-free smoothness, allowing the whale-tail launcher to rise and drop in a uniform, consistent fashion. This sure-to-center-the-arrow launcher does have angle adjustment, which means increased tuning. $179.99 | ripcordarrowrest.com


Trophy Taker Smackdown LockUp Click

A limb-activated marvel that has proved its salt, Trophy Taker’s Smackdown LockUp Click is a breeze to setup, tune, and offers precision micro-adjust windage adjustments. A friction-free design, the LockUp can be fixed in the field via the limb-activated launcher arm action, and the Full Arrow Lockup Containment Ring makes for easy arrow loading and provides 100 percent containment. The windage adjustment has been increased for 1-inch risers, and the rest comes with a lifetime warranty. $149.99 | trophytaker.com


Hamskea Epsilon

Hamskea Epsilon

A solid new arrow rest designed to up accuracy and improve tuning, Hamskea’s Epsilon features C.O.R. (Center-Shot Optimized Rest). This design puts the arrow directly behind the riser for a lower profile. The result is a perfectly achieved center shot. Hamskea went the extra mile and created a separate Mathews Bracket that will work with all 2020-or-newer Mathews models. A limb-actuated rest, the Epsilon allows you to use either the top or bottom for cord attachment and the feature-full rest also lets you use the downward cable. Micro-adjust windage and elevation are precise (.003 per click) via the Ball-Detent system. A trio of stainless-steel bearings supports the carrier rod's full length, and the over molded launcher and containment bracket are money. hamskeaarchery.com

A full-containment rest that’s a breeze to slap on your riser and start sending carbon from, Octane’s new-for-2022 Octagon Pro IMS is brush-style, fixed-position rest that features the mount-to-the-face-of-the-riser Integrated Mounting System. This system provides maximum arrow rest security, virtually eliminating rest movement once mounted. Tuning is made easy with windage and elevation adjustments with laser-engraved reference marks. The Octagon Pro IMS is offered in bumper cap colors of Black, Red, Neon Green, and Light Purple for bow customization. $79.99 | octanearchery.com
