    My girlfriend received a 1955 Bear Kodiak Special from her Father that belong to her grandfather. The bow was in amazingly good shape but the feather rest, which I had never seen before, had to be replaced. I was amazed to see that someone actually had this rest.

    Installing it on the bow was a snap, just peel and stick, however it is hard to get all four corners of the leather base to lay flat on the curved shelf of the bow. maybe softening the leather up with a hair dryer might have helped, but once in place it remains in place.

    It really is an amazing rest, the arrows draw cleanly and release without any disruption because the feathers compress downward as the arrow moves with the grain of the feathers.

    My girlfriend is a very good shot and they has definitely helped her grouping while keeping with the tradition of the bow.

    It is fine if you are just in your backyard, and not moving a lot, but, in a hunting situation, I find the arrow, even though the feathers are sloped toward the riser, has a tendency to fall off. I plan to modify the rest with additional feathers and use a higher one at the outside the reduce the likelihood of that happening. And as was mentioned by another reviewer, it does not like to bend over a riser crown. I plan on using it on a old Ben Pearson recurve with a flat shelf.

          Comments about Wild Turkey Feather Arrow Rest:

          I have been using a bear glue on plastic rest for the last two seasons. The rest works great but it is very hard on my arrow feathers. This feather rest is soft and compliant. It does not seem to be damaging my new arrow feathers. It is easy to tune the arrow flight using this rest. Make sure you have your side rest in place prior to locating this on your riser shelf. I recommend using some fletching adhesive around the edges because it does tend to lift a little on the corners.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery was prompt and the packaging was great.

                Comments about Wild Turkey Feather Arrow Rest:

                Despite a close up picture of the product, the way this rest works was not clear to me until I had it on my riser shelf. I was wondering why there was a LH & RH version. The reason is the feather height become lower on the side facing towards the riser. The arrow shaft settles into a wedge formed between the rest and your strike plate, kind of like a low-tech version of a flipper rest & plunger. I was using a Bear Weather Rest before, and am much happier with this. The only complaint is that either the leather needs to be more flexible or the adhesive needs to be stickier. On a crowned shelf, it has a tendency to pull away at the edges. I just push it back down before my shooting session each time.

                  Comments about Wild Turkey Feather Arrow Rest:

                  I've been shooting since the early 1960's. I'm one of those guys who likes to fiddle with different ideas to improve accuracy. That being said, I've never shot with a feather arrow rest till yesterday. I shoot every day.

                  I'm attaching a photo of one of my groups from yesterday. Can't say in all my years of shooting I've ever found anything that improved my group size so fast.

                  No way of knowing how durable it is but if it wears out, I'll buy another. Wouldn't you?

                  Love how this looks on my black widow. Have had no problem with feather rest not performing when wet. Love how silent arrow is through rest. Have shots thousands of arrows and little sign of wear. Like others, getting all of backing to stick on radioed shelf was small problem. So I used arrow fletching glue on corners. Easy.

                    Great for a flat shelf riser, will not stick on a radiused or crowned shelf very well, other than that a really cool rest.

                      Love the way it looks on my Samick Sage, especially now that I have a FF Flemish string. Seems to squish down well, smaller than I thought it would be...about 1"x2".

                        I wanted an elevated rest for my 71 Shakespeare Kaibab and this feather rest was just the ticket. I really dig the way it looks, and more importantly, how it performs. I wouldn't use it in a rain storm but for a Sunday afternoon 3D its a great add to my traditional gear.
