This is the rest on my 1974 Howatt Hi-Speed. I like it. Kinda of an elevated shelf. [smile]  It's beginning to show wear and I'd like to replace it. Does any one recognize this as a commercially made rest or did someone make this? That's foam in the middle.

I just checked Vintagearchery.org site for the 1974 Howatt catalog. There isn’t any rests like the one on your bow offered. i did find a couple stick on Hoyt rests and shelf material offered. So looks like a DYI project. I would try and find some foam like from a gym mat or shoe insole. Then any shelf rug material available from a vendor here or the fuzzy side of Velcro available at the kraft store would work.

Lol  After looking thru  the Howatt catalogs from 74 to the 1977 Martin & Howatt catalog, I found a possible match in the combined catalog, page 35. #48 Wisper Arrow rest, covered with calf skin, speeds up arrow flight[smile], easy to attach, unaffected by rain or snow.
But you're right, I'll probably have to make myself and have already been experimenting with the loop side Velcro. Thanks for your foam suggestions.[thumb]

I remember a rest like that but the curved part was not foam it was a thin piece of spring metal that the Velcro was attached to, and it flexed. I would bet that ugly coyote will have a catalog that will list them, I believe they were made during the early period of the compound.

Bob, believe that rest was on the Browning bows. I did some looking for one a couple years ago. I had acquired a Browning in a raffle. But I sold the bow and lost interes.

I would just get a piece of closed cell ethafoam and some Velcro, and make it myself.

I'm on it! Finished a trial just before logging in. [smile] Only closed cell foam I had handy is white, and narrower than needed, cut two pieces, split one, glued it to full piece, covered with loop side Velcro, used another piece of the Velcro, shaved off the loop, and glued it to the other three pieces as a base to stick on the shelf. Got thread wrapped around holding every thing snug while it dries.  Sorry pic is blurry.[redface]

I thought as much when I saw it in the 1977 Martin & Howatt combined catalog,The #48 Wisper Arrow rest. love the advertising, reminded me of reading a Herter's catalog.[biggrin]

Second effort, didn't need two pieces, 3/8" with strike plate clearance is enough, should have measured the width too.[redface]. This one is much neater. or will be once dry and I can trim the edge off. Just one piece of the 3/4" self stick Velcro, split in half. glued the bottom of the foam, wrapped with thread to "clamp" it together.
