      Could be hard on feathers?

      Hi David! Im not entirely sure if one could attain zero contact with the Fletchings on this rest or not.I think that would depend on how closely matched the Spine of the Arrows are? A overly Stiff Arrow, may have some contact issues? Im wondering if there would be enough Paradox to swing the Fletching Up and Out of the way? I will Lip Stick test one, as soon as I get one made up, and report back.

      David as a follow up.I completed the rest, and after checking for clearence of the Feathers, im happy to report that the Fletches are clearing the rest! They are however,lightly brushing the top of the Strike Pad,but nothing severe,and was to be expected,on my part.I will say,they come out of the Bow,like Lasers,and are grouping more consistant for me.Here is the First shots after completion of the rest at 31 yards. Im happy with the time it took to make it! Good Hunting!:lol:

      I put one on my Hickory Selfbow, works great, I have a shelf on this bow but was getting erratic arrow flight at times! since I put this toothbrush rest on the bow is dead on all the time! I was skeptical at first but the rest was easy to make so I gave it a try!

      Copy that Rip!Bear Archery had a similiar Bristle Rest,back in the 60-70’s,but the Bristles came off of the Rest Straight ,instead of a 45 degree angle.Im very impressed with the flight, and accuracy of this,and should last prit near forever! Good Stuff!

      Last I knew, Black Widow sold a brush rest in their catalog. I bought a couple of them a few years ago. They worked great.
