I purchased a hamskea hunter pro and when i put it on my bow the spring is holding the launcher down instead of up. Anyone know how to correct this?

The spring on the string tied to your limb or the internal spring in the rest?

Is it configured for use on your down cable? That would leave it in that orientation.

No being smart but read the directions. They can be set up many ways. Upper limb, lower limb and springy. I believe there is another spring that comes with them to hold it in the down position.

You need to change the internal spring. It should have come with two -one for top limb and one for bottom limb. Should have instructions included or you can check their website or call them.

Pm sent and basically exactly what nvgoat said. There should be a left hand spring and a right hand spring.

I believe Hamskea posts YouTube videos on how to set up their rests.

My instructions for the versarest say the correct spring for limb and cable driven is the one than tightens as you turn it counter clockwise.
