Gear Review: HHA Sports Virtus Fall Away Arrow Rest

HHA Sports released the Virtus Fall Away arrow rest for 2017 and coming from a company known for quality archery sights, I figured this rest would rank right up there, too. I was not mistaken! I have been field testing the Virtus for a short time in SoCal with great results.
On average, 22 veterans a day take their lives in America, struggling to cope with the physical and mental scars sustained during their time of service. 

In an effort to raise awareness of this issue and help those in need, 2.2% of the profits from the sales of the Virtus rest will go to the Operation HHAUSA project to actively involve veterans in the sport of archery and hunting.

The Virtus was installed in less than 15 minutes. Now, it's no secret that I love my HHA sights, and the Virtus ranks right up there with yet another great product from them. I would recommend making a slight mark, in pencil, on your bow where you current rest sits. It makes installation that much faster so you can line everything up. Plus, I recommend reading the directions in full. One of the benefits to the Virtus is that you can draw the cord through the cable attachment OR through the rest itself. It allows you to sync everything up and allows the rest to come up perfectly at full draw. 

The rubber on the prong area is excellent for keeping the arrow still when setting an arrow in place. It is quiet, but also keeps the arrow still when loading it up.

The Virtus is extremely quiet when cocking and when firing an arrow. Really quiet! I love that feature of the rest. No spring noises, no slap of it hitting the riser, and no grinding. It functions very well. I shot round after round after round and my groups were tight, the bow was quiet, and the rest quickly became one of my favorite parts of my bow. 

As with any of their product, it carries the 100% Lifetime Warranty from HHA Sports. All HHA products are made in the USA and carry a 100% lifetime guarantee. That should matter to you! Should your Virtus fail, return it to them and they will repair or replace it within 48 hours and return it to you. Pretty sweet, right? 

Retailing from $129.99, the HHA Virtus Fall Away arrow rest is a great buy for a top rate product. I have been a fan of HHA Sports sights for years and they solidified it even more with the addition of the Virtus . Do I recommend it? You bet I do! In fact, I am already removing my other rests to install the Virtus on each of my bows. I think it is that good!
