Default Rest for shooting with fingers

What rest do you guys use that shoot with your fingers. I'm thinking about shooting with a finger release again. Just to keep things simple.

I used a NAP flipper rest when I shot fingers. Simple to adjust, cheap and it works good. Last one I had was on my bow for six years, after I got it tuned I didn't touch it until I took it off.

Golden Key Superstar rest. I haven't seen another est that offers the adjustability of this one. It comes with different launchers and side plates so that any arrow combination can be tunes. Micro adjustable for verticle and horizontal adjustment.

You won't be sorry.

I like the GKF Arro-Trac & Ultra Trac

The good old Flipper & the models by Cavalier are good too. The Ultra Trac with a plunger would be the ultimate in my book as far as finger shooting goes.

When I used to shoot fingers I used a cushioned plunger with a curved springy rest on it. Cost I think $10. Also used a 4 blade head and 4 fletch (75-105). Was simple to use, didn't matter how I knocked the arrow as both ways were the same. Never had any fletch clearance problems. Sometimes I wonder why I left the simpler ways when I look at all the gadgets and success with it.

My current rest is the Cavalier Freeflyte I use a plunger button instead of the pressure plate or fin I can adjust the side tesion to get my broadheads and feild points to group together. GFK ultratrac is another good one GFK Medalist. Cavalier freeflyte micro is a good one too. I tried the bodoodle timberdoodle and had terrible luck with it. I could not acheive clearence. A flipper plunger combo is the best for clearence and tuning ease. Good Luck.
