Arrow Rests

The function is pretty simple - to hold your arrow in position and support the arrow until you fire the bow. This not withstanding, not all arrow rests are created equal, there are dozens of different rests to choose from. Some are inexpensive; some are not. Some are simple to install and use; many are not. Some are good for hunting; others are not. You get the idea. There is no one perfect rest for everyone and every application. Like most things you buy, each type of arrow rest has pros and cons to consider. And while it probably isn't necessary to buy the most expensive model, a quality arrow rest, in conjunction with a quality sight, will undoubtedly improve your accuracy and success in the field. If you're looking to improve your shooting, installing a quality arrow rest is a great place to start. As such, we suggest you consider this choice carefully.

Arrow Rest Types

If you're shooting a modern center-shot cutaway bow, you have a wide variety of arrow rest designs to choose from. Modern bows are generally drilled and tapped to the same AMO specs, so any brand of arrow rest fits virtually any bow*. For example, you don't have to choose a PSE rest to go with your PSE bow. You can choose virtually any rest on the market.
*Be advised, some bow brands feature especially thick risers and/or wide center-shots. If you have such a bow, please check to make sure the arrow rest you select has enough windage adjustment.
