I have been a member of Trad Gang for several years and Ferret is a
great guy with an awesome site to help people with different projects.
I havent tried one of his floppy rest but have heard that they work
great. I added a picture in my album here that shows the type of rest
that is on my bow. It is a thick shaped piece of leather that is
glued to the side and then the handle wrap covers it on the end.
