      A:

      It can only go one direction due to the lay of the feathers. Hope this
      helps.

      Jim,
      It does make a difference which way the feathers face. You want to install this rest with the steep end to the face of the bow.

      A:

      There is a Left and a Right version of this product. You want the arrow to travel with the flow of the feather not against it. Also they are smaller as you get closer to the window of the bow.
      Hope that helps!

      The grain has to face a certain direction. If it is mounted backwards it
      will "grab" the arrow and severely affect arrow flight.

  • Q:

    This is NOT a complaint. I've been using the rest for about 3 months now, and really like it. However, yesterday (06/04/14) I noticed the 2nd vane from the outboard side (RH rest) was ripped out with just a little piece of feather left on the front (target side). I can't figure out what happened. I'm gonna order a new one but would like to have a 'heads up' if this has happened to anyone before, or maybe someone could let me know what may have happened. I shoot 4 fletch feathers at about 40lbs. Thanks in advance. AS I said, I just want to try and make sure it doesn't happen to my new rest. Thanks.

      Thanks to those that answered my question. I think Sam, from 3-Rivers nailed it. I did find several 'sharp ends' on my fletching. I had glued them all down but I also shot through my home-made target several times. I went back and looked, after Sam noted this may be the problem, and found several "sharp points". I am shaving them off and re-gluing them. Thanks to all for your responses. It IS a very good rest and I will continue using them.

      A:

      I'm not sure what caused it, but possibly the end of the quill is sharp on one or more of your arrows. You can take a razor blade and taper the front of the quill down so that it isn't so sharp.

      I have had no such problems with mine. I had to glue the bottom pad
      down once when the front edge came loose but a little superglue resolved
      the issue.

  • Q:

    how would you fit this to a bow with a pretty narrow shelf and crowned sight window. looks like its for sure wider than my shelf. several have commented its pretty stiff so I am guessing it want conform to the shape of my sight window. maybe something better for my application.

      A:

      It is on an adhesive base, so it should wrap around the crowned shelf without much problem. As for width, it can be trimmed if needed, but it is not much wider than an arrow, so you might not need to do that.

      A:

      I use this on my Bear classics and they are crowned as well. No problems there. They are no wider than an arrow so it should work for any shelf that you can shoot directly off the shelf.
      I always use a plate shield as well.
      Good luck!

    Does Three rivers Achery still sell the kind of Feather Rest with the feathers mouned on double stick tape? All I was able to find on the web site is the "fancy" wild turky feather rest.

      A:

      Yes. I purchased the item below and am quite pleased with it. It goes on
      easy with the sticky back tape. It is slightly stanted toward the riser so
      be sure you buy the correct handed version. My arrows and feathers have no
      clearance issues at all.

      A:

      It sounds to me like you are using plastic vanes on your arrows.   I use feather fletching on my arrows, and this arrow rest is still in the peak condition it was in when I purchased it.  The high velocity and the lack of give on the plastic vanes can destroy feather arrow rests as this one.

      Most likely your nocking point is set to low it should be set 5/8 up from the rest for split finger

      A:

      I have these on a few bows - and they start to show wear after around 300+
      arrows. The feathers on my arrows will typically start failing well before
      these rests - but they will fail and need to be replaced at some point.
      But overall I really like the set-up - traditional looking with great
      control. And overall my fletchings on arrows will last much longer than on
      any other type of rest.

      A:

      If your arrows push down too hard as you draw back this will pull back against the grain of the feather rest. Just like you don't want to brush the feathers on the arrow backwards. I have feather rests on several bows using traditional arrows and all of them have lasted several years.

      A:

      They used to last fairly well but the original manufacturer, maybe Bohning, seemed to stop selling the $3 and $4 ones with colored synthetic feathers a couple of years ago. I got one of these two years ago and am hoping it finishes the season. I am looking for a replacement or source of the older ones presently. While I only got two years out of mine I must admit it takes a lot of abuse in that time with me. I do prefer to hunt in the rain and snow. I have shot from feather rests for decades and hope to continue to do so.

      I did, so it is really up to personal preference.  The left or right hand has a slight slant to it to cradle the arrows up close to the strike plate area, so I would recommend getting one as a precaution.

      I should clear up what I said. For the strike plate, it isn't necessary. The arrows will mark the riser over time if you don't, however.

      It requires a flat shelf for the adhesive on the bottom. My riser's shelf has a slight curve and I don't get 100% adhesion. It works but isn't ideal.

    How do these hold up in the rain or snow? I've read that feather rests tend to sink too much when they get wet and thus throwing off your entire setup.

      The rest hold up pretty good. It's possible that if it gets wet enough it could cause an issue, but for the most part they withstand the weather fairly well.

      A:

      In my system this may be a problem but I suspect other things have a greater affect. I missed a doe low, I think, Monday before last. 1.75" of rain had soaked everything through. On release a cloud of mist from my feathers and string obscured the arrow flight entirely. Visually the arrow rest stands up to rain well. I did not notice its feathers settling at all but did swap arrows a couple of times for drier feathers.

      A:

      No it is just the opposite if you the hand you draw or pull the bow with determines the lt or rt handed bow not the one you hold it with. Now I think this is kind of an oxymoron due to the fact I'm left handed and shoot a pistol left handed so I hold the bow in my left hand like a pistol and it seems right and comfortable to me and very awkward the opposite way in my right hand.. But according to them it's the hand you pull with that determines it.

      No. Left hand means the string is drawn with the left hand. The 'string'
      hand is like the trigger finger when using firearms. Left handed guns
      shooters pull the trigger with their left hand.

      Hi Keith I put the square jut touching the feather seems to work good for me

      Answered on 8/5/2013 by Anonymous
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      The feathers in the rest are sloped toward the riser to help hold the arrow
      in place. This slope means you will have to do a little experimenting to
      determine where an arrow will sit when placed on the rest. The diameter of
      your arrow, where you choose to place the rest on the arrow shelf and
      thickness of the strike plate or rest material you place on the vertical
      part of the riser will affect where the arrow will sit when placed on the
      rest.
      After you mount the feather rest, string the bow and place an arrow on the
      string and place the shaft on top of the new rest. Don't worry about an
      exact nocking height at this time. Just place the arrow so it's a bit
      above level when sitting on the rest. Take note of where the bottom of the
      shaft touches the rest. This is the spot you will use for your bow
      square. The feathers in the rest will lay down when the arrow is released
      for a shot. They may look and feel a bit fragile, but they will take a lot
      of abuse. Should you experience any wear on the rest, just nock another
      arrow, note where it touches the worn rest and use that contact point for
      your bow square.

      I set my nock slightly higher than the rest so the arrow points down ever so little.
