Recurve Q

Recommended Posts

Boar

Have a recurve with a sloped tapperd rest, what kinda a arrow rest is used, sent my wife to the store, my bad, she brought home a bear hair arrow rest, but i was thinking that arrow will still slide of due to the tappered rest area, Was hoping shed have bought the one stick on one with the little arm flange thingy that sticks out. I thing that one is the right type due to the make up of the bow. Right?

Have a recurve with a sloped tapperd rest...

I want to make sure we understand what your'e saying so we can get you good info. When you say "sloped, tapered rest", you must mean the shelf, not the rest, correct? By this I'm guessing you mean that if you put an arrow on the shelf and hold the bow straight up and down, the arrow falls off? I'm not trying to nit pick- just making sure we understand...

A lot of guys will shoot right off the shelf. The previous shooter may have canted the bow if the shelf was tapered. Not sure on that one. You could either re-mold the shelf so it's level and fits your shooting style or use a rest. I started with a brush rest and like it a lot. A stick on rest would work great as well. Happy shooting!

I shoot off the shelf with my Martin Dream Catcher. Have seen other bows with a slanted shelf though where you wouldn't be able to shoot off a hair rest on the shelf.

I am guessing you want a rest like this?

I see some on the FS Discount Archery online catalog for $6.99.

Lancaster Archery Supply has a few recurve rests on their site also.

Yea the shelf, its fabricated that way, just kinda slopes down not really a shelf, just a shoulder that drops away gradually.

It sounds more like a long bow where the arrow rests on your hand to me I guess. 2c

I would shoot that one off the shelf without a rest and it's a recurve and sure is pretty.

Really? I would of thought to use a rest. Dose on have to slightly hold the arrow with index finger? It will drop off without doing so.

I think you need the little prong rest thing like what I linked above.

I see two options- shoot the arrow off the shelf while canting your bow a bit (obviously, it'll fall off if you don't) or do as Cheetah suggests and put on a flipper style rest.

Shooting off the shelf or canting isn't for everyone. Try it for awhile & if that style doesn't suit you, pop on a rest. You going to bear hunt with that beauty this fall?

      Good Morning everyone, The family and myself will be in Mankato July 27-29 for the MSF baseball tournament(U11).  It appears we may have down time Sat. Was wondering if  anyone could point me in the right direction to a shorefishing area I could take the family?   First time to Mankato, so no real idea where to look. Thank you.

      I hadn't hit the river in >1 month, but last night went Fishing below the SCSU dam in St. Cloud last evening and the river conditions are really quite good for July.  Water height is at a good level and the past week of dryness has improved water clarity. (...that may change today with possible rain all day in forecast) Probably the hottest bite I've ever had in the river--Pretty much everything was biting on nightcrawlers!  (there were 10 different species pulled out in <2 hours!)  Fun Evening!

      I assume you mean the 110 size one.  I have all three, the 90, 110, and 130 in different colors.  I have never had great luck using them however.  They are a well made lure and they have good plopping action, I just can't get very many bites on them.

      It came down pretty quick the past couple days after they got like 8 inches of rain at the headwaters last week.

      I purchased The newer smaller size Whopper Plopper, what a kool surface plug.  I can give it to most any client fishing and they can catch great fish. I had  a family of four on a guide trip, (Dad, Mom,  son10 and daughter 6 yrs old.) What a blast, was going to be dad and the kids, I told mom to come with to enjoy time . We spent an hour plus catching many sunfish and rockbass, the kids having a great time cranking fish from 16 feet of water.  I said "Lets look for bigger fish."  A quick bit of instruction with mom on how to set the hook, She began catching Bass after Bass, (I had only used the lure myself once for 10 minutes and caught 3 bass.) The Mrs, caught her personal best bass, of 19 inches.  Going out to get several more, for as sure as Gods make apples and bees, I know this bait sooner or later going trigger either a large pike or musky if on the of those lakes.  They may cost a bit more, but I my conservative approach to buying lures.  Money well spent.  I got the loon.
