If your riser is cut well past center like a compound and if you use a release, it may work. Otherwise, no.

If it's the one I just researched by NAP, I'd ask both how and why would ya ever want to put such a rest on a recurve???

It doesn't look to me that there would be a threaded opening the right size should you try...

I tried one with a compound and finger release.
Theres no proper cushion nor does the rest allows itself adjusted forward enough for the pressure point to be above the deepest part of the handle.I found it very unforgiving.
Plus the whole setup messes your sight picture unless you use a sight.
Only thing its got going is youre able to stalk arrow nocked and it stays put.
Id say dont do it.

The cheap adhesive rests work pretty good. Worth a try, they're cheap.

Hoyt Super Rest.

http://www.lancasterarchery.com/hoyt-super-rest.html

Believe it or not, this $2.50 rest is frequently used by top level Olympic archers. People who are usually sponsored and where cost is often no concern to them use this rest to win gold medals. I've used them on my bows that lack a Berger hole and they are great - no-fuss, easy to put on, and extremely durable. They can be a little more difficult to tune if your riser is cut well past center, but they do include a thicker foam spacer to help with that.

For my bows that have a Berger hole, I sometimes use a NAP Centerest flipper:

http://www.lancasterarchery.com/nap-...rrow-rest.html

If I want a lot of adjustability, I use a stick-on magnetic rest like this one by Sebastian Flute. You can micro tune the flipper arm if you are almost there, but don't want to move your nock point.

http://www.lancasterarchery.com/w-w-...rrow-rest.html

And I add a simple plunger to tune centershot:

http://www.lancasterarchery.com/trad...n-plunger.html


The full-containment rests tend to be for compounds shot with a release. For finger release, you will want some kind of plunger or strike plate to provide side pressure to offset the paradox induced by the string. I have successfully used a Whisker Biscuit on my ILF recurve before, so if you need full containment, that might work for you.

In your opinion what is my best option. Im only shooting targets up to prob 40 yds max. I have a berger hole in my riser. Is it better for me to use the center rest in the berger hole or use a plunger tip with the magnetic rest??

In my opinion, the NAP Centerest flipper would be your best bet. It is inexpensive, simple to tune centershot, and is pretty much indestructible. I believe the Sage is cut past center so this rest would work for you.

Used the NAP dropaway on a Dorado with a release and compound sights. Was no more accurate for me than my WB rest. Especially past 60yds? Have not tried it fingers

Excel was not cut far enough past centre as was the BG BB warf for the available centreshot adjustment..

Did not always drop away with sub 8 gnpp arrows but was still accurate enough below 40yds with 2" Razrs especially compared to the average pie plate trad hunter.

'Am deaf but appeared noisy/vibration?

'Am presently playing with a Strickland Springy.

Did not McKinney dabble with inertia dropaways? Would they work if used in conjunction with a 2 holed riser with a cushion plunger in the other hole?

welcome to the forum, Moomans1!

Since you have a berger hole, maybe consider a springy rest since it's inexpensive, simple to install and use, and a time-proven design. Here's a discussion and the guy's contact info on the second page:

Plastic rest continue to wear down as you shoot. In my opinion the best rest for your bow would be a SPRINGY ARROW REST but I am prejudiced as I manufacture the Original Springy Rest. Gary and Sandy McCain, Ben Rogers, Tom Daley and hundreds of others used it on both recurves and compounds and still consider it the best.

Thanks and good shooting
