    lilmac1959, welcome to the forums. The Gazelle is a new name for me. What year is the bow and is it a Martin? If you know how a picture would help a lot, but just generally speaking a Whisker Bisquit will fit on most any bow. In fact most rests made today will fit on any bow with the exception being some rests on the Hoyt bridge risers.

    This is the only gazelle bow I know and they won't work on it.

    Hopefully you have a different bow.

    Hutch, I googled it and was surprised. Martin did make a Gazelle compound. 1997 and it's a scaled down model for little people. How 'bout that.

    lilmac? I'd say the bisquit will fit. Best bet is to take it to a shop and find out for sure.

    Looks like almost any sight will fit on your Gazelle.

    The Gazelle was actually sold for several years and they sold a lot of them. It was probably one of the best youth, ladies and short draw bows of its time. It would do the speed with the big boys at 5grs per pound back in the aluminum days of the mid '90s.
