    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...

    I've got a DAS 17inch riser on its way to me right now. I'm shooting Dryad ACS Recurve limbs that should be pulling about 56lbs when all is said and done. I have every intention of putting a micro adjust springy rest on the bow. I have never used one and am a total newb. I shoot a fixed crawl...

    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...

    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.

    Most here know that I've shot a springy rest on my hunting bow for a long time. Bob Gordon talked me into going that way on the first warf I got from him about 11 years ago. So it was easy to go to the springy rest when I started shooting Field, and oh so nice when Gary and Pat got the...

    I am waiting on a new CH riser. Previously I used a leather strip rest and a Bear 1959 strike plate. Considering seal hair for such instead. Where do you get the seal hair rests that I see some folks using?

    Im not cutting them with broad heads, Im using field points. It looks like they are tearing on the draw but Im not sure. They are ripping at the base of the arm flap The thing is its happening in around just 30 or 40 shots. Im probably doing something dumb; I never used rests much before...

    G'Day all - I had a link that I bookmarked ages ago to the guy who sells those real nice springy rests that so many have recommended on this forum, especially for use on warf bows - This is what I had: http://www.patnorrisarchery.com/adjustablespringy2.htm Went to jump on yesterday as my warf...

    It looks dirt simple and probably is. Do you use LW for right or left hand or do you mix up the feathers . Anybody make these?

    springy rests shipping update I found 16 of these in a drawer I hadn't looked in for 20 years, so if you want to try one here's your chance. All right handed. Sorry leftys, I'm one of you. Each comes with 2 springs, different sizes but have no idea what the "oz" rating would be. 3 of them...

    I have a coffee can full of springies. I started using springy rest a long time ago. they were just easy to use and did not take much fiddling except to get the spring arm shaped to match the vanes or fletch you are shooting. that is all there is to it. I have actually never made of study of...

    I do not want to clutter up the other thread with my question so here goes. Years ago I used springy rests like Pat Norris has on my compound bows. I always wondered if I was using the right spring with the arrows I shot. So I did a search in the old threads here but really did not find an...

    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...
