    I have an Excel and a Dorado riser. I'm contemplating what rest to use for hunting. Pretty sure I want something that allows adjustment for centershot. I know there are a lot of good ones available. My main concern is how much adjustability can these rests provide. Do they simply provide a...

    Had a question for you all and couldn't wait until posting tomorrow. Been mulling this issue for a while... I'm planning on creating an elevated toothbrush rest (link to that is here: http://www.tradbow.com/public/How-To-Make-a-Toothbrush-Rest.cfm) but had a question for tillering my limbs...

    Ok, on my new to me Sky 15" riser, I have to plunger holes. If I wanted to shoot from an elevated rest, which one do I utilize? How does this effect the tiller on the limbs? Thanks in advance.

    Bought a back-up used metal ILF riser. It has two plunger holes and I was thinking I might tinker with an elevated rest, even though I've always shot off the shelf. This would be used for hunting/3D. I was going to get a TT shorty and pair it with a simple flipper like the stick-on NAP Flipper...

    I've been shooting off the shelf with a rug-style rest (shelf) and felt pads (strike plate) on my Hoyt Game Master 2, and its quiet on the draw and no obvious sound when releasing an arrow. Most of the members in my club are Olympic-style shooters and when they draw back their arrows, I hear a...

    I'm a short riser guy (21" Dalaa, 21" Excel, 21" GM2, 21" BB Warf, 17" Trad Tech Titan, various wood recurves). I've shot these off the shelf or with a simple Bear weather rest ... no plungers ... time to move on? I've often wondered how a 25" riser would shoot so a number of months ago I saw...

    I just opened my new Dalaa 17 in. riser. On my current wood riser recurve I use a Hoyt Super rest without issue. I figured since the DAS offers more adjustability I should take advantage. So, I ordered a DAS shorty plunger and was disappointed in it's quality, not to mention it's finish was...

    If one uses elevated rest, is there any real advantage to useing a plunger or some kind of rest that gives in? If you shoot off the shelf it has no give. I have been going back and forth and can not make up my mind. The only thing for me is that changes my gaps just a bit. Any help or...

    I am setting up my bow for Bare bow competitions. I see different rules as to what is allowed. One says shoot off the shelf and you are RECURVE, anothet says elevated rest and plunger you are RECURVE-UNAIDED.I quess I could have two different bows but that would mean switching back and forth...

    Hey all. Since I finished my First WARF I have been doing a fair bit of bare shaft tuning. Got them flying real good out past 20m but get consistant knock low flight. Impact looks good, maybe a little higher then fletched. I know off the shelf if they were hitting high I would go up a smidge on...

    Need to set an initial nock point on a bow - I'm going to attach a Bear Weatherest on the bow so that the bottom edge of the rest is about 1/8" above the edge of the shelf (can't go any lower with the rest mounting as the window/shelf merge is a bit curved). So where do I lay the bow square...

    I just got a Reflex Traditions (Hoyt Gamemaster 2) and would like some advice as far as elevated rests go. I would appreciate suggestions as to what you use with similar bows and why. I'm a hunter primarily and I shoot Goldtip carbon shafts. Also if possible please include pics. Thanks!

    I have a Titan that is set up with a plunger and flipper rest. It shoots great and was easy to tune. When I switch to another recurve that I have set up to shoot off of the shelf, It takes me awhile to get zeroed in again. It seems that I will need to shoot either both bows using elevated rest...

    I'm kind of at a critical juncture in the configuration of my 21" Dalaa.... Whether to stick with shooting off the shelf or go w/ an elevated rest of some sort. and if I stay with the shelf, to keep the strike button or use a plunger. This bow will be primarily for roving and dispatching the...

    Hello all, I have a Warfed Hoyt riser with foam/carbon ILF limbs. The draw weight is about [email protected] and I draw 27ish. The limbs are an even tiller and I have a flipper rest on the riser. I am shooting 1716 cut to 28" with a 100 grain head. My question is what height do you start playing around...

    Hello all. I had a question about the position of your fletching when using an elevated rest. I have a Warfed recurve and am using a Flipper rest. Is there any fletching position which is best suited for this rest? Right now I am shooting cock feather up. Arrow flight is good but I do see...

    Hi all I'm fairly new to traditional archery and currently have 2 recurves. One came with an elevated stick on rest and the other, a bear hair off the shelf style. I'm curious which style rest is more popular these days? I shoot instinctively and find the off the shelf setup less problematic...
