I shoot off the shelf on my longbows but I have not had great luck shooting my Bob Lee directly off a rug or Velcro on the shelf. I've had better flight with a feather rest I bought at Three Rivers. At the Texas Recurve Championship I was talking to a guy - really good shooter - who uses a Bear Weather rest on his Bob Lee. I bought one to try out but have not mounted it yet. Some will tell you off the shelf is the only way to go for a trad bow but for hunting accuracy I'm willing to try just about anything.

We use to use them long ago. They just wear out to fast for my liking. There are better options out there.

I'm using a stick on rest that came with my SWA bow.

Was considering going straight off the shelf.

But..... arrow flight is better w a rest?

Gonna look into that feather rest from 3R's.

I shoot a fishing line rest on my Lees. I always shot of the shelf with feathers but switched to vanes and get better flight off the fishing line rest.

What is a fishing line rest? Havenít heard of this yet, and may be something worth looking at as I recently made a set of arrows for my bob lee with tradvanes for those rainy days.

Zoom in on the pic in my post. Itís exactly what it sounds like. Itís just a bundle of fishing line that serves as an elevated rest. The weather rest donít hold up and I donít like the other options on the market so I went with the fishing line rest. Iíll try to send you a link on how to build one. My riser is tapped for it so that may change your mind if you donít want a hole in your riser.

Hey Sergio, I picked mine up at our local Bass Pro for like 10 bucks. They work, you’ll just have to move your nocking point and tune. There’s better ones out there too.
