Ultradyne, an American designer and manufacturer of advanced shooting accessories, was spotted on the podium at the 2018 Rockcastle Pro Am on Tim Yackley’s rifle.
When asked about the Apollo Brake Yackley replied, “I installed the Ultradyne Apollo brake on my rifle right before Pro Am and love how flat it shoots and minimizes rearward recoil. While shooting long range I am able to watch for impact splash and make better follow-up shots due to how the brake performs. When shooting offhand Apollo keeps my sights on target – the movement is the least of any muzzle devices I have shot.”
Yackley continued by describing a particular stage in which the Apollo made a notable difference, “…A course of fire at the Rockcastle Pro Am required the shooter to engage targets out to 500 yards from a platform suspended by four chains. Only four of 244 competitors hit all targets. I was one of those four, and feel I won that stage over others because the Apollo helped me make those hits – the minimal rearward recoil kept me stable on the platform.”
Apollo Max stands as a no-compromise, recoil-reducing phenom. Internal testing shows the Apollo Max outperforms other leading brake designs in recoil reduction by as much as 25%. As Tim Yackley attests, such reduction enables nearly instantaneous follow-up shots and is an excellent option for shooters who want the last word in recoil performance.
Apollo Max’s unique design includes angled muzzle-rise compensation ports at the end of the device which direct gasses away from the shooter’s line of sight to avoid the vision-dazzling effects inherent in other designs. 100% CNC machined in the USA, each port was located, sized, and shaped for maximum flow utilizing a combination of modeling and relentless testing. Until now such a high level of recoil reduction was not possible from a device of practical size, but Ultradyne’s science- and engineering-oriented approach brings this game-changing technology to the shooting public.
Apollo Max is available tuned for 5.56mm, 6.5mm Creedmoor, and .308 WIN and is part of Ultradyne’s family of performance muzzle devices, each representing a different combination of recoil reduction and sonic characteristics.
