Arrow Rests & Plates
Using a rest and plate will protect your bow shelf from wear and provides quieter arrow drawing. A bow's arrow rest is offered in materials such as Hair that is the slickest for a cleaner arrow release. Leather is the more durable rest material, but takes time to break-in. Rug material cushions the arrow for better accuracy.
Elevated Rests create a smaller surface area for the arrow to touch, so bow hand movement has minimal effect on the arrow flight to increase your accuracy.
