    Default martin jaguar recurve arrow rest question

    I Have been using the martin jet rest that came with the bow and was wondering what would be a better rest. Also does rest need to be positioned away from riser do to arrow fletching coming in contact with riser.
    thank you for help

    The rest on a recurve is always placed at the riser because of the archers paradox causing an arrow to flex arround the shelf.

    Do you shoot them with a correct spine? If your recurve arrows are overspined they will not bend around the shelf.

    Another option would a plunger button be.

    Im using 30inch alumin carbon express arrows 2117. My bow has a 50 lb draw i think these are the right spined arrows according to the easton arrow chart at there web sight.

    On the other hand it seems like it may be the plastic vanes that hit the rest and riser should i use real feathers instead
