    I am looking to purchase a Springy rest, or maybe a couple of them. I need right hand and would consider the standard or micro tune model. A variety of spring weights would be ideal. Thanks

    So, I've been shooting barebow for a little over a year now. My rig is a Samick Avante with an 18oz weight in the lowest stab bushin, and Axiom 26lb limbs. Arrows are full length Predator2 800's with 44 grain half outs. I recently upgraded my rest from a cheap $10 bolt on flipper with a lot...

    Why the different springs, do I need a heavier spring for a heavier arrow, what are the weight limits for each spring.

    Hey! New to this ILF stuff and I really didnt know what I was getting into when I bought this Samick Discovery, what with all this tech stuff and tuning but anyway here I am and I have a question. It was shooting better than I could but 3 R suggested a Vista rest/plunger combo that was really...

    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 wonder if anyone could give me a recommendation for a wrap around type recurve rest/plunger button combination to fit a Border Tempest 23" riser please? I'm using a Mybo hotwire magnetic rest on a 25" Tempest at the moment, with a Shibuya plunger, for my Olympic Target setup, but just fancy...

    Hello! Looking to put together a Barebow setup for a compounder that has been thinking about Barebow. The last ingredient I need is a good arrow rest. Anyone have a AAE Free Flyte Elite right hand arrow rest they don't need? Thank you for looking!

    Aris from Rcore grips just reveal it It has new downward progressive resistance (like a magnetic plunger I guess) feature, taking away downward wire play It reduces crawl like the zniper rest according to other bb archers <--- can someone knowledgeable explain why is that? Thx

    Is there a unified theory? If not, are there any strong more specific theories?

    I'm trying a berger button on my hunting bow (metal riser) and need some suggestions on a magnetic bolt on type rest, with a wire spring arm for bowhunting. Needs to be solidly built to handle heavy hunting arrows, silent, and dependable. Also want it to hold the shaft securely, so when I lift...

    I have a Bidrop and ZT rest, both of the wires are fine on them. I'm wondering if the local hardware stores carry the wire material to make a replacement should the need arise. Has anyone ever done this and is there a certain brand and type of wire I should be looking for? A replacement bidrop...

    I am lucky enough to own a Bear take down "C" riser, ~1969 vintage. The rest installed is a bristle type, in a rectangular shape and recessed ~1/8" into riser. As the original rest area is cut/recessed into the riser, it seems likely I can find some modern rest which could be trimmed to fit...

    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...
