      A:

      This is a synthetic material for the rest and the plate is leather. Both pieces have adhesive backing.

      A:

      Hi,
      The best way to describe my Bear rest purchased from 3Rivers Archery is it is a rug like material with a protective tab for the arrow shelf with adhesive material that allows you to measure then trim the rest directly on the bow. Prior to that I place the bow protective tab directly alligned with the bow rest. I purchase several at a time because I shoot traditional competition they will eventually wear out.
      Hope this helps you out.

  • Q:

    Hi, I am currently using a longbow and shooting off a bare shelf. How does the use of a rest and plate add to my shooting experience?

      A:

      The arrow will come out of the bow quieter and smoother. It will also be easier on the bow and arrow finishes.

      A:

      It protects shelf and arrow and makes bow more quiet a must have.

      Hi
      I think it is a matter of preference. I have four longbows and several recurves and always use a Bear rest with leather plate on the bow. It just seems more smooth shooting, easier on the wood of the bow and all of my longbows and recurves are set up with that combination all purchased from 3Rivers Archery. Additionally I keep several spare in my Archery Tackle box.

      A:

      The use of the rest and back plate are essential to shooting off the shelf. They make the arrow flight by the bow both quiet and smooth. Do not forget to set nock height because this will make arrows slap and porpoise. Most bows like a setting somewhere between 1\8 and 1\2 inch high at nock. You may also set centershot by building up behind the plate. Good shooting!

  • Q:

    So this is better for feathered arrows rather than vaned?

      Yup!

      A:

      Yes, vanes will cause the rest to wear out much faster. Anytime you plan to shoot off of the shelf it is better to use a feathered arrow.

  • Q:

    Ok I just bought a recurve bow dont know much about them it was set up by bass pro if I put this arrow rest on do I need to adjust my nock point if so how do you take the nock off the string to realine the nock or just take it off to put finger savers on if i chose to do so

      A:

      Yes you will want to adjust the string knock just a little bit. You will want to buy a pair of knock pliers to move the knock. You can use finger savers as an alternative.

      A:

      The Bear Hair Rest and Plate comes with a leather side plate that is approx 1/10" thick.

      A:

      Not all that thick, maybe 1/16" but looks like it would hold up well.

      A:

      I don't have a mm measuring stick handy, but I'd say about 1-2 mm at the most. It's thick enough that you should feel good about its protection but thin enough to stay out of the way.

      A:

      I'd say its about 1 1/2 mm to 2 mm thick. The plate that came with the rest I ordered was actually a synthetic leather pad.

      A:

      The arrow plate measures 2 millimeters thick, give or take a tenth.

  • Q:

    I just bought this and I have wooden Darton recurve. Can you elaborate on the use of a toothpick? Is that to raise a part of the shelf so the arrow is not totally flat on the shelf?
    Also where is the best part to position the leather strike plate? Should it be at the center or toward the back near the anchor point? Thanks.

      A:

      Yes if you have a rest or site window that is completely flat the use of a toothpick or thin piece of leather can be used to raise up the arrow to it would have less contact surface with the rest. The strike plate should be placed over the crown of the site window or the center if there is no crown.

  • Q:

    I just tried out my Montana Bear Longbow and the arrow rest and plate chewed up the feathers on one of my arrows... I finally ripped them off and purchased this rest and plate, but am not sure if I should actually used the leather plate or use the bear hair rest for the rest and plate...comments? Suggestions?

      A:

      First thing that I would ask is if your using feathers or vanes, if your using vanes switch to feathers. Next, if your using feathers and it's chewing the leading edge of them, then more than likely your nock point is to low and needs to be moved up. Most nock points are set up 3/8-1/2 above the shelf with the back of the arrow running down hill, never level. If that does not fix it then I would have to think that it is the arrows, they could be to stiff or under spined. The rest you have should work, but a better choice would be the Calf Hair Rest and Plate. This rest is more of a longbow rest with the rest you have is more of a recurve style rest, but both should work if the bow is set up properly. Below is a link that will take you the rest.

      The bear hair rest in combination with the little leather piece on the side work very well for me and very little wear to the feathers on my arrows. Good luck friend.

      A:

      If you are wanting to shoot vanes your are going to want to shoot off of an elevated rest. Below are a couple links that will take you two a couple rests that you can shoot vanes off of.

    • A:

      It is never recommended to use plastic vanes when shooting off the shelf (which is what this rest is designed for). A plastic vane will not collapse like a feather will when it contacts the rest area. This will bounce the rear of the arrow and produce very erratic flight.

      Yes, I have used both feathers and vanes without a problem.

      A:

      I don't think the plastic vanes would hurt the material at all, but I would question using plastic vanes directly off a bow shelf without a arrow rest installed.
