Hi, just like to know if anyone has converted or replaced the top to one that can accept a edgewood front bag ? im looking to do this,i just dont like the top as it is.

I have one. Its not really an edgewood bag the sides are lots thinner. A regular bag like from a JJ rest wont go in. The top is the only way to go with a neo rest. You get the functionality of the neo with a good for BR bag- whats not to like?

FYI - I talked to J.D. Denoff one day at the Super Shoot (back when he was still speaking) about seeing him with several rear bags that day - all brand new. He said he couldn't find one that worked. I laughed (internally of course) but the very next day Clarence Hammond (pretty sure but not positive) was doing the same exact thing. I laughed a little bit but not so much as before and tracked their progress. Both did a little better with the new sandbags! Go figure!

The issue im having is with the adj. side plate's, im finding kind of hard to tighten the clamp's on them, and every now and again i find one comes loose while shooting also while looking better the clamp tighten's up only on one side while it moves easy with finger presure on the non clamped side. maybe should have a straight thru bolt as to have it clamp on both side ?
Ive tried to rough up with some sand paper to see if it would do better but not by much.
Dont get me wrong here i think the rest is very well made, solid and smooth to operate but the top and bag does not do it justice.

Regard's:)

You get one of those tops from pma tool and its a game changer. Makes it not only usable but superior

Dusty,
I looked on PMA's website and couldn't find what you mention. Can you direct me to it?

Thanks,
Rick

Is this the same top rest that Mike Ratigan offers in his benchrest configured Neo?

No his is a 1 piece bag in the factory top. This is a top that looks like a JJ rest top that goes on top of a neo. Replaces the entire top assy.

Does anyone have a picture or link to post of what a JJ rest top and bag looks like?

Dusty,
Where did you get that small wind flag on the corner of the bench? If you have a contact for the maker I would appreciate it.

Wilbur

Just take the time to make that one yourself. Conversely, it would seem that any wind flag maker would do it for you at some price.....

Almost any windflag maker will make one for you. I can have one in your hands in about a week.

David, I will take you up on that as soon as we get home, which should be Dec8th! We are in Vegas for Turkey day and a shoot that's weekend after then headed back to Phoenix for the rail gun shoot first weekend in Dec.
Wilbur, I have a lot on my plate, and while I enjoy making stuff, It would be better to pay someone to do it!
I make bench covers and that keeps me pretty busy!

I bought the new top for my neo . It is top quility and makes a great addition to the rest. I will be putting it to test tomorrow morning. Bought the slick bag . Hope it's a big difference . I had trouble with the original set up . Hope it helps.

I never could get my gun to settle down in the bag .
I was just fixed to sell and buy a Farley I have a freind that has a Farley I got to shoot off of and my gun shot better off the Farley then my neo. Until I put this new top on now it's equl to the Farley maybe better. The original bag was either to tight or to loose. I know it does not make sense but you can tell the diff.
