    Help me choose a rest speed screw

    I have heard different stories about them.

    Sinclair and Kiff to name a few.

    Any suggestions out there? Good or Bad?

    The one from Field and Cave Outfitters looks interesting. Thoughts from those that may have one? Pricey but worth it?

    Calvin, I have been using a Sinclair Speed Screw for twenty years. It features a triple lead screw, and is very fast. It's a well made piece, and works.

    That's about the best you can expect.

    F&C calls it a precision elevation screw.
    Nowhere does it say “Speed Screw”.

    Speed?

    If the plan is to get there quick, This one is faster than a coaxial.

    I have two, a Sinclair and a Skip Otto. They both work well. I wouldn’t sell either and, of course, the Skip Otto is a treasure.

    Call Bill Gammon. A Canuck makes the flipper. If I remember correctly.

    what you call a "flipper" is a Dunrud sighter cam. Made in NW Minnesota, when it was made. I believe he has quit building them.

    Thanks

    Gents for your thoughts and comments.

    Guess Sinclair it may be. May open the threads on the back leg to accept the larger 1/2 inch screw.
