Did you see my rest? Do you think you could lift this rest of yours up high like mine? I try and get center shot as close as I can....

My rest is up higher to where a normal rest would sit.

why would i do that..............??????????..........i want my rest as close to my bow hand as i can get it...............and still get great arrow flight 3 under. maybe you need one that high for the show work...............but i also don't understand why you use wood glue on leather when barge cement is much better and less brittle............you could use teflon that high.......just get a big block of it and whittle out your rest..............glue it down and off you go.............

Sorry, what I should have said was that I liked the material of your rest . My question for you was how do you think it would perform up high like I like my rests? I may experiment with teflon... it looks pretty solid. My rest is the most accurate rest I have ever found, for aerial or bowhunting... very accurate. But it is a little too fragile for bowhunting conditions.

I suppose I didn't clarify my question.

Whump Sez; I use felt or seal skin . As a hunter I try to un-complicate things. But since all Pirates rarely carried the same sword then as individuals we can learn from the techniques of others. The more complicated anything is the more prone it is to failure, so we can make an assumption that a man with no legs will not have knee trouble. All ways look at the bright side! HUnt safe.
I have climbed and clawed from the pits of merciless persecution and suffered the tortures of the damned ,only to be thrust head first into what can be best described as organized confusion.
