    i need some help guys. ive got a grizzly recurve from Bear, and the rest is a traditional bear hair rest. but my arrows are peeling up the edge as they go over it. any ideas on how i can prevent this?

    What part, the shelf or side?
    If shelf try raising your string nock a bit.
    If side, perhaps arrow stiffness (spine) is incorrect for the draw weight and your draw lenth. What Draw weight, Draw lenth, and arrow arrow specs?

    Try stripping the fletching off one and see how it shoots compared to a fletched one (both with fieldpoints) Either the arrow is too stiff, or the nock point is too low. How are you holding? Split finger or 3 under? 3 under will require an even higher nock-point than split.
