  • Q:

    I have been reading a lot about fine tuning a recurve bow and one thing keeps popping up. Something called a cushion plunger. I'm guessing it is some kind of arrow rest but what does it do? No one really seems to explain what it actually does and why I would need one. How does it differ from just shooting from the shelf? From what I gather it is adjustable. How and why? Thank you for any help with this.

      A:

      Not only its it adjustable left and right, but it is also adjustable in the tension(pressure) against the arrow so that the flex of the arrow has less affect on its overall flight giving you a much tighter and consistent grouping.

      A:

      A plunger is a simple device that is basically a spring in a cylinder that
      acts much like a shock absorber. You can do several things with it but most
      bows need to be set up with an elevated rest although some bows have been
      built to use a plunger while shooting off the shelf. It does several things..
      It can help you adjust the centershot of your bow. Second, because it has an
      internal spring that can be adjusted, it actually acts like a shock absorber
      for your arrow. When you shoot. By adjusting tension on the spring it can
      help you to fine tune your arrows so that there is no question about spine.
      In addition, the plunger can help minimize some errors you may make as you
      release your arrow and thus improve accurate shooting. Most come with
      various spring weights so that you can use them for all types of shooting
      as most archers shoot lighter arrows for target applications and other use
      heavier arrows for hunting. I use one all the time on my hunting bow and
      have my wife¹s set up with one, as well. For me, it helps to really fine
      tune the arrow to the bow and I consider having one essential. There is no
      downside to using a well made one. Be sure the cylinder and spring are made
      with materials like brass and stainless steel and there will never be a
      problem with it freezing up or rusting.

  • Q:

    I just asked a question about using this with a samick sage and I forgot to add "if I used an elevated rest like the dura flip" I will reiterate: I inherited 250+ arrows with vanes and I am very close to buying a samick sage using this and the elevated rest would it be possible to get decent arrow flight using vanes if arrows were spined right. If not is there any other way to use vanes with the sage

      A:

      With an elevated rest you will have better flight with vanes over just shooting off the shelf. You still can get erratic flight from the vanes still.

      A:

      It will work, in order to get perfect flight you would want a drop away rest.

  • Q:

    Im days away from buying a samick sage. Im at a dilemma- I have 250+ arrows with vanes-and none with fletches would it be possible to get decent arrow flight with vanes(if arrows were spined correct) using this on the samick sage-id like to avoid buying new arrows/fletching jig etc.

      A:

      You will not get great arrow flight with vanes. I would recommend to get a fletching jig and fletch the arrows you have with feathers.

  • Q:

    How does it install and how do you fine tune it?

      A:

      The DAS hunting Plunger screws into the plunger hole in the arrow rest. By loosening set screws and tightening/loosing the plunger is how it is tuned. You can adjust the depth of the button and tension of the button.

      A:

      The Plunger is installed into the plunger bushing in the side of the riser. By moving the plunger in and out you can affect how center shot the bow is. This will allow you to tune for an arrow that is a little weak or a little stiff.

  • Q:

    I have a Martin Hatfield takedown with wooden riser. Is this plunger too short?

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Yes, the thread is the same as other plungers, but is shorter on the outside of the bow so not to extend too far from the bow to make it easier to maneuver. The plunger does require a plunger bushing drilled in your bow though.

  • Q:

    Will this work well with a Samick Sage and the Champion II Magnetic Arrow Rest, or would it shoot better off the shelf? What is the total length of this plunger?

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Yes, this plunger will work with the Sage and the Champion II rest. The plunger is 1 3/4" full length.

  • Q:

    Shawn, Doesn't the plunger adjustment fine tune the arrow spline,
    i.e. the nock is directly behind the point as viewed by the shooter?

      A:

      The plunger allows you to move the positioning of the shelf. If you have an arrow that is too stiff then a bow that is cut past center will work better. The opposite would be true for a weak arrow; you would want the bow cut before center. The plunger allows you to adjust the bow back and forth with relative ease. For example, I have seen a 55# Dalaa shoot a 600 series Traditional only carbon shaft like a dart. If the bow was not adjustable you would be looking at a 500 or 400 series shaft (with a 28" draw length).

    ".400 Centershot." What does "Centershot" mean. I'm thinking of using this on my Ragim Impala.

      A:

      Center shot is having an arrow rest in the exact center of the bow. This allows for easier tuning as the arrow does not have to "wrap" around the bow riser when it is shot. Also, the arrow tip is pointed straight at the target and can improve accuracy since it is a straight path to the target (doesn't bend around the riser).
