AeroRest is the most advanced and most accurate rest on the present market. AeroRest is unique in its design; 3 supports using ceramic ball bearings as arrow contacting points for frictionless shooting. AeroRest is built to the highest tolerances, has been awarded 3 US patents, and is built with the highest grade materials including Titanium, aircraft grade Aluminum, Ceramic, and Beryllium copper. You will be excited about shooting your arrows with the AeroRest.
AeroRest Main Features:
FRICTIONLESS BALL BEARING OPERATION:
Hard ceramic ball bearings contact surface eliminates almost all friction between the rest and the arrow.
FULL CONTAINMENT SHOOTING FLEXIBILITY:
Three " arrow supports” provide the most stable containment system and ensure your arrow is always in the center.
NO WEAR CERAMIC BALL BEARING CONTACT SURFACE:
Industrial grade ABEC#5 ceramic ball bearings means virtually no wear out.
Each arrow support contains 2 ceramic ball bearings and a beryllium copper spring to provide smooth and quiet operation.
1.5 OUNCE WEIGHT (SUPER LITE):
The AeroRest is the lightest arrow rest on the market due to the usage of new generation of materials (Si3N4 ceramic, aircraft grade Aluminum, GR2 Titanium)
ULTRA HARD TYPE III ANODIZED FINISH:
AeroRest is finished with Type III Aluminum anodizing to no less than 3 MIL for extreme durability. This finish gives the rest a natural Camo gun gray / olive green color.
GR2 Titanium FASTENERS/SPACERS (NO RUST):
Fasteners and spacers are made of GR2 Titanium (75% lighter than ordinary materials) making them rust proof.
FITS MOST ARROW SIZE (INCLUDING NANO):
AeroRest can accept arrow shaft sizes from 0.25” to as small as 0.156” (optional spacer pack required) and large arrows up to 0.45” (removal of one retention support required).
CAN BE USED BY LEFT OR RIGHT HAND SHOOTERS:
AeroRest has a mirror image design which allows AeroRest to be used by right or left handed shooters.
MICRO ADJUSTABLE DESIGN FOR TARGET OR HUNTING:
Micrometer equipped to allow fine 0.1 mm adjustment for accurate target shooting as well as hunting in the field.

AeroRest Technical Tour
AeroRest is a full containment arrow rest. AeroRest is unique in its design and material usage and will take your shooting performance and experience to a new level. In terms of design:
AeroRest has a unique 3 support design which allows the arrow to have only a maximum of three contact points (usually only 2 physically contacting) with the AeroRest.
AeroRest utilizes ball bearings to support the arrow, thus the total surface of arrow contacting the ceramic ball bearings is very small, not exceeding 0.000.000.4 square inches per ball bearing.
Underneath each ball bearing, there is a second ball bearing to further minimize friction in case the upper ball bearing rolls.
There is a micro spring supporting the second ball bearing and its tension can be adjusted via a brass screw located at the end of each support. This 2 ball bearings and micro spring design makes AeroRest become frictionless as the total contacting surface is virtually zero and makes AeroRest become a suspension system for the arrow as the tension of each support can be adjusted according to the flex of the arrow.
Regarding material usage, the ball bearings are made of ZiO2 (i.e. ceramic), the super hard nature of this material makes AeroRest virtually frictionless as it is difficult to generate friction on a super smooth and hard surface. Its light weight means AeroRest can react / suspend the arrow smoothly according to the tension of the spring. The choice of ZiO2 is not just because of its hardness and durability. ZiO2 will produce sound naturally when reacting with carbon. This sound is natural to the environment and to the game. On top of this, the edge of the retaining cup of the ceramic ball bearing for each support is Type/Level 3 hard anodized MIL-A-8625 aluminum, which means their surface hardness is similar to ceramics and the edge is round and smooth. This means there is virtually no friction between the ball bearings and the edge of the retaining cups
The unique design and material usage makes AeroRest virtually frictionless so it will always guide the arrow in the center and on the same plane all the time. The AeroRest will make your arrow shoot faster, straighter, and more accurately.
When the arrow is shot, only two or max three ultra small contact points are formed between the arrow and the AeroRest.
The only friction points between the arrow and AeroRest are virtually negligible / zero as they are the tangents of the arrow to the ceramic ball bearings, thus there is virtually zero friction.
The main body of the AeroRest is CNC machined level 3 anodized Aluminum and the fastening screws are mostly made of Titanium for maximum durability and ultra light weight. Case in point, a normal 5/16-40 3/4” blue steel hex bolt weighs in at 0.20-0.22 ounces and a 5/16-40 3/4” Titanium Torx bolt weighs only 0.053 ounces (i.e. ~ 75% reduction in weight).
All models of AeroRest (Standard and Micro Adjuster) are now equipped with Magic 96-degree design so there is no more hassle when setting up your AeroRest on your bow. What is Magic 96-degree design? The 96-degree design (96 degrees between the 2 lower supports) makes stacking Titanium spacers history. Now the AeroRest can fit arrows from 4mm to 12mm Outside Diameter (OD) with just 3 simple steps to cover ultra slim, slim, and standard arrow sizes; while one can still ultra fine tune the rest with the spacers if desired.
Nylon balls are no longer included in the package as it is deemed to be unnecessary.
Camo C frame is available as an option for the Standard version of the AeroRest.
Besides the laser marked side bar for the Standard version of the AeroRest, a Titanium side bar is now available for selection./li>
