The idea behind putting a small piece of leather, or a small wire even, behind the strike pad or under the arrow rest is to minimize contact between the arrow and the bow. The theory being that with minimum contact, the setup will be less sensitive to torquing the bow.

If your bow has a rounded shelf strike plate area, it wont benefit much from adding the strip. If it has been cut flat, then it will benefit.
