    I just ordered a Sage and am excited to get it in my hands and really start practicing hard. Hopefully to be able to take it in the woods this coming season!

    I have a spare WB laying around. Can I use that as a rest on the bow? Google isn't turning up much.

    You can just try to tune it the best you can

    Don't make us pull your red neck card Bob. Anything can be done ( might not be pretty)

    Can be done with the right mounting bracket. I've seen a few recurves over on the big river site that come with a WB rest.
    The WB they sell for recurve/longbow have a different mounting bracket than those sold for compound bows.

    Not sure I would install any type rest that didn't allow me to sight down the arrow or see the arrow tip.
    But that depends on how you shoot I guess.

    I used a springy rest like this

    You're right, Google doesn't show much. I'm gonna get a cheapo over here in UK. Delivery is about a week though. Will let you know when I shot a few arrows through it

    Well now, WB arrived and I couldn't even fit it. ARM isn't long enough for 2 screws. Mind, it's NOT the proper WB, just a Chinese cheapo.

    I started out with a Samick Sage and using a Bear Traditional Hair Rest I was able to learn to shoot it very well.
    As far as a WB rest that would be a hard way to go being how you tune recurves with arrows flexing off the strike plate (side of the riser) which there is plenty of info and videos on how to set one up. When I started I bought a set of 30lb limbs to learn with, form and proper technique and also bought a set of hunting weight limbs for hunting. The Samick Sage is a great buy.
    Good Luck
