    Default I'm a NEWBIE HEEELLLPPPP!

    Whats up guys, I'm kinda new to archery as a whole and even newer to recurve. I jus got a Jaguar @ 40lbs and so far I'm loving it! I took the Whisker Biscuit and Spot Hogg 5-Pin off my old Martin compound. My groups at 10 yards arent too bad, I'm waiting for my Whisper Peep sight to get here in the mail. Anyway I've got a question. What type of rest do you guys recommend?

    Hi and welcome! I use a flipper type rest on my recurve, the kind with a single wire arm with a plunger. It allows the arrow to swing out in paradox going forward. I'm not sure if a whisker biscuit is suited for recurve, I assume your shooting fingers.

    Anyway, wiser heads than me will answer.

    Whisker biscuits aren't all that friendly for any finger shooter and in my opinion, definitely not for a recurve or stick bow. The Flipper rest and plunger he noted are good for just about anyone and well suited for the beginner. Getting picky with experience, then the higher quality, more adjustable rests and spring plungers might suit you.
    I shot straight off the shelf for years with nothing but a quality felt pad.

    Thanks, brother. I've read that flipper rests probably are the way to go for recurve, BUT the main thing I like about the WB (probably capture rests in general) is that I don't get that problem with the arrow swinging to left when I draw. SO far the WB hasn't been bad, I guess. As a matter of fact here a video I made of me shooting in the basement.

    You have to understand Archer's Paradox. String coming off the fingers has the bow string wobbling left and right. So, the vanes are probably "slapping" the biscuit instead of slipping straight through. A Flipper rest would let the arrow be the natural form of Archer's Paradox

    Is there a containment style rest that also flips? What I don't like about the rest that came with it is that sometimes the arrow falls to left. I like doing 3 fingers, one on top, 2 on the bottom.
