As I have gotten older I hunt less and less. I'm to the point I'd rather shoot arrows n my yard than go to the woods. Not hunting has given me a lot more free time and I am always looking for something to do after I shoot. I like building things, widgets and such, so today I built a new rest for one of my 3D bows. I built it using a piece of springy steel strapping material. I attached it to a Hoyt riser using double faced tape and securing it under the top of the Jager grip. So far it seems to be working very well. Here are a couple of pictures.

That's neat John. Do you think it will be durable? I like the width.

Pretty cool. That's thinking outside of the box. Jim

I have been shooting it all day in my man cave, working on blind bale training. After 50 or so shots, I see no problems at all. If flexes up and down only slightly so I doubt the metal will tire or break. But, until I shoot it a lot more, won't know for sure. One thing for sure, it is secure, not moving at all. The combination of the quality double face tape and the grip squeezing it tight, it is rock solid.

That banding steel is great stuff it is not going to wear out. The attachment would be the only weak point. We used it for years to hold large blueprints on a back board. Great idea. I will make use of it. Thanks >>>----> Ken

That is so cool I want to do that!!

Nice!! Probably works as well as the expensive models and youve made it yourself.

I spend an inordinant amount of time grinding and turkey feathers--- since ive retired i do things at a much slower pace, which in the long run saves me time, because they are done right the first time.

That's pretty darn slick. There used to be a rest that was made similar to that but it set on the shelf. I bought an old Browning Medallion one time that had one on it. Worked really well.

I modified a toothbrush as a rest, and this looks cool. I like tinkering, too.

Looks like vanes would be no problem with it. Guarantee Rick has already thought that ;)
