    Default Bodoodle rest

I'm probably violating some rule of modern archery by using this old technology, but it surely does shoot straight, is easy to set up, never fails and looks good in the process.
    Well, you get yourself a "Ata Boy" for knowing low tech and old goodies still get the job done. None of my old stuff gets sold off. Might need it some day.

    Good choice of rests. Zapper 300 will do you well. Quick easy and quiet. When or if you go hunting, just put a piece of packing tape on each prong. This will quiet the arrows when drawing back.

    Do you mean they fall out of the rest?

    You know that I'll be want to see that photo of that shot, might even take a look at a practice shot, any where you could hang from and get a shoot in the basement?

    Here is a few pics of mine.
    Each blade runs rounded to the arrow leaving no movement. It can fall out if shaken well.

    From looking at your pics it seems my top fins are cdown to far on the sides. It also looks like your shaft diameter is larger heres what I got. I didnt resize them so u could get a good look If i bring the arms higher the arrow falls out side ways
