    Sarge we are just to old for the kids to listen to and they probably cost $15.00 by now. I know Norris archery sells the spring for $2.00

    I just wanted to say thanks to zesty. Your wisdom was priceless. Once I made the modifications to the Timberdoodle ll . Great rest ill call you later in the week. I just picked up my daughters Bear Apprentice ll

    Don't keep us in suspense. What modifications?
    Most religions teach that you earn salvation by keeping rules. Jesus didn't teach that "good people" go to heaven. He taught that "forgiven people" go to heaven. And He invited everyone, no matter what their past, to come to Him and be forgiven.

    Depending on the arrow dia. and the blades they send, you might have to make them thinner in the width for fletching clearance.
    When I talked to the owner in Yankton and told him they have to be modified to be legal for fingers for NFAA he replaced the fingers with stiffer ones that lift the arrow shaft up higher to make the 1/4" above the shaft rule.
    If you go to Bodoodles web site, they sell differant types and stiffness of fins.
    It's just like most things, you have to tune them for your shooting style.
    But once you get the rest dialed in, it's awesome.

    Laz,
    The Timberdoodle can only be adjusted left and right, the Timberdoodle II can be adjusted up, down, left and right.
    It is also shapped dirfferent than the first Timberdoodle.

    I've used and abused mine for over 20 years of bowhunting now and I would recommend it in a heartbeat. I wonder what caused yours to bend like you describe?

    Was it the head that bent, or the body? If the body got bent, I would probably advise against the Timberdoodle II. Rugged enough for me I'm sure, but I doubt it could withstand the kind of pressure that the arrow seems to be receiving.

    The rest that bent was not the Timberdoodle ll.It was the Centerest fliper. I own the timberdoodle ll now. My feathers kept ripping off . I talked a few time to Zesty. He told me to grind the fingers down. I was sent the hunter fingers. I just ordered the thiner target ones but I was going crazy . I had just recieved a new site from Tactical Arms. It has glass with a green center line and 3 red dots like a laser scope. I could not use it. So I used my grinder. I have not lost a vane since. That Timberdoodle what a rest. Thanks again Don

    I know that your rest was the Centerest. My question still remains: was it the head or that body that bent? I'm trying to understand why it bent. Glad that you are satisfied with your Timberdoodle II.

    You are obviously smarter than me. I don't know what the head or body is ? Do you know that thin bar that the arrow sits on ? That bent down. So imagine this. I bought my bow. It was set up for a release. I go to Reedys my local archery shop.I buy the flipper on Saturday. By Monday I have it tuned. I mean I am shooting good tight groups. I pull back my bow the arrow rolls off the rest . I put my finder on the arrow. To put it back on the rest and the arm bends a 1/4 inch down. I was a bit upset. So then I start doing some research. I'm not sure how long it took say a week and a half. Then I choose the Boodoodle Timberdoodle ll. Which so far is a good rest. Im very happy with the choice. Now it took 4 days to get it. I went 2 weeks and could not shoot. So basically that is my story . 2 weeks and I cant shoot. I like to shoot every day. A couple hours a day. Anyways

    Not smarter than you Jesse, just trying to figure out what bent down, and I should have understood from the start that it was the arm. Sorry. When I draw my bow, the arrow sometimes falls off the rest too, and I guess we're not the only ones suffering from pinching on the nock end when we draw. Thanks for the clarification.

    I know the op has made his decision and bought the TimberDoodle. For those of you that like a flipper style rest, don't overlook the Terry T-3 flipper with plunger. I had a Reflex Caribou 2 with the T-3 and a plunger. I liked the heavy wire on the T-3, I'd still be using it if it hadn't been stolen. I use the NAP Centerest now simply because that's what the archery range stocks and it's simple. I carry extra tips in the field and at the range in case the wire fails. I've replaced it 3 or 4 times. I shoot a 550 grain arrow over 500 times a week and when carrying my bow through the woods I've had the arrow hit branches while on the rest. I suspect it's a combination of these two things that's led to the wear/breakage of the wire. I'm looking at that Bodoodle though, it looks tempting.

    I forgot to mention the Edgars with a Tone button cost about $100 for the combo 20 years ago.

    im a newbie that doesn't know wth he's doing, here's my springy v-coil rest that has been working
    great for me through a couple range sessions. don't know if its installed right or if its even for recurve,
    it came with a threaded bushing that im assuming is used for a wood riser. works great and only $8, no torn
    vanes and my arrows seem to fly straight.

    The biscuit blocks the tip of your arrow so you can not see it.

    I have always backed my "star" type launcher with a plunger making it more adjustable in tuning/improved arrow flight.

    Tried quite a few over the years and most end up having a failure usually at the worst moment. Went back to the old springy rest as a few others have mentioned and sweet as
