    My first bow was a Howard Hill "Westley Special", 50#@28. I shot it for a few months, split finger instinctive, and got nowhere with it. Eventually I put it away and forgot about archery. About six months ago the bug bit again, and I have been shooting barebow recurve (USAA rules) in a league...

I have use the t300 hunting rest with plunger for years but don’t feel it’s the one for me anymore I want something more sturdier I do have a metal naki magnetic I never used but feel it would be noisy...

    I picked up a samick discovery riser and a set of samick foam core 40lb limbs. This is my first ilf bow. I notice the first shot after you string it up can be noisy. I have heard that is pretty normal. Any opinions on this? I am shooting off a screw in elevated rest. Pretty much been shooting...

    Okay, I'll admit it, I'm stumped. I've been at this awhile...okay much longer than awhile but I'm suffering from age denial. I've shot mostly wood riser bows off the shelf for a long, long time. I'd describe my aiming method a bit of a cross between gap and split vision. Here's the...

    I just recently got my first WARF(BB done by LocDo) and am setting it up with an elevated rest(Xpert magnetic stick on). I have not shot an elevated rest for quite some time and seem to remember on previous bows that my nock height was closer to level than when shooting off the shelf. Strangely...

    I got the latest GoPro 6 and I'm very impressed. I filmed a lot of the ETAR video with it and I was impressed with the quality of the image. I've always wanted to video a nice buck being shot and I've tried to use GoPro's before on my head to film but was not happy with the perspective. The...

    I'm trying out a plunger and elevated rest for hunting season. It's a WF19 riser and new Dryad RCTX limbs. The problem is I can't seem to get the twang noise out of the rest. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    My horseback archery club set this up off to the side of the main practice area, so I tested it out on foot. Might need softer rubber blunts...the arrows hit really hard.

    I'm a lifelong shelf shooter, but just for giggles I'm setting up a Black Bear warf with an elevated rest and plunger, mainly because because I had some in my tackle box. I know most modern metal ILF bows frequently offer two (fore/aft) threaded holes for plungers. I always thought...

    Hi, Been lurking for a while, and have received a lot of help from this forum! I've searched here and elsewhere, and can't find any info... I know (from reading posts here) that elevated rests were popular as early as the 50's and 60's. I also know that feather rests were (probably) the...

    So I got a deal on a Satori the other day and I want to set it up to shoot off an elevated rest. I have a tiny bit of experience with this but not a lot. I have a 25" Cartel riser that has a flipper rest and plunger but I bought it with that and shot it a little one summer and back in the olden...

    I shoot off of the shelf. My bare shaft runs tail low due to positive limb tiller. Say the nock height is 1/2". If I go to a thicker pad effectively raising the rest height, and keep the same nock height of 1/2", what does this do to arrow flight due to tiller? Make it behave like a lower or...

    I just got a Hoyt satori, my first metal riser. I started string walking so that's the main reason I got a metal riser for the tuning options. What's the best elevated hunting rest? I have always shot a black widow or bob lee off the shelf. I shot the satori off the shelf and it shoots really...

    Do you believe that an elevated rest gives you a competitive advantage over an off the shelf set-up? Yes No Would like to know why you think either answer is true.

    I have another post going on here about my trouble with arrow flight. I think I am getting contact with the outside of my shelf. I was looking at the spigarelli rest. It's pricey but I need durability for back pack hunting. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Doug

    I have one of Steve's Mountain Muffler custom strings coming in for my DAS Elite and am still undecided on how I want to set this rig up...on one hand?..I figure off the shelf would be quieter and more widely accepted "rule/class" wise between the many organizations but on the other...

    Since switching to ILF I've found that my "go to" settings transitioned pretty much intact. By that I mean for many years I've shot purely off the shelf (sealskin rest/calf hair sideplate), 3 under, nock point 5/8ths high, even tiller. I've got a W&W Black Wolf specifically to try with an...

    I would like to try a elevated rest and plunger on my Titan 1. Can you recommend one?

    Hey all, I am just now getting into setting up my Morrison 17 inch ILF aluminum riser with my KAP short limbs. Nice bow. Feels good in the hand. I have one of the "plastic" type NAP Centerrest clones on it now. I have used these in the past with no problems and they seem to hold up really...

    My three year old grandson, Ace River Reed. https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10205993764499659 He really gained a lot when I got him away from the shorty arrows that he had been flinging. He was able to go three for three in no time at all.
