TODAY’S PATENT – ARROW REST
The ARROW REST was invented by Miroslav Andrew Simo (Riverside, IL) on 21st February 1978, bearing the patent number US4074674A.
This invention relates to an arrow rest for mounting on an archery bow to assist in the accuracy of shooting the arrows.
An arrow rest for mounting on an archery bow to maintain an arrow shaft in desired position prior to release of arrow from bow. The arrow rest is spring biased in two planes, a generally horizontal plane, and a generally vertical plane, or parallel to the bow. The arrow rest disclosed provides greater resistance to arrow shaft movement in the direction along the axis of the bow than resistance to movement in the horizontal plane. The arrow rest may be readily mounted in a predetermined position on the bow and provides for holding the arrow in desired position in side winds and when the bow is tilted from the vertical position.
