Shibuya Ultima Recurve Rest
A new dimension of precision from Shibuya.
For almost 40 years, Shibuya has been the top choice of successful target archers around the globe demanding precision, well designed and expertly crafted archery equipment.
For many years, top athletes have requested that Shibuya develop an arrow rest tailored to their needs. Developed through Shibuya’s decades of experience with feedback from champion archers such as Natalia Valeeva and Magnus Petersson, we are proud to announce the Ultima Recurve Rest!
Ultima Recurve Rest is available in these attractive colours:
Ultima Recurve Rest Set contents:

- 1.5mm hex wrench
- Instruction sheet
DLC-Coated Offset Support Arm
The Ultima Recurve Rest’s Support Arm makes use of DLC-coating – a technology offering superior material strength and friction properties, applied in fields such as parts for racing engines. As a result, the energy loss inflicted on an arrow gliding over the arm is reduced to the bare minimum. The Support Arm’s Offset construction guarantees no contact with the cushion plunger’s barrel, even when used with the smallest diameter shafts.
DLC (Diamond-like carbon): A coating of amorphous carbon, granting exceptional hardness, wear resistance, and slickness (low coefficient of friction).
Dual Adjust System for perfect clearance
The Ultima Recurve Rest is adjustable not only vertically, to ensure compatibility with any size arrow shaft, but also horizontally to compensate for sight window depth and plunger settings. There is no need to ever cut or bend the support arm again! Adjustments are easy to make with one screw, even when the arrow is rested on the support arm. The Support Arm is available separately, and can be replaced easily.
CNC machined for unrivaled precision manufacturing
By employing CNC milling, Shibuya was able to reduce dimensional error margins to an unprecedented minimum. The three-dimensional construction enables the magnets to be arranged in a V-shape – the birth of the “V-Lock” magnet system! Just like Shibuya’s world-famous sight systems, the Ultima Recurve Rest is produced in Japan to meticulous quality standards.
CNC (Computer Numerical Control): computerized automation of machine tools such as milling machines.
Shibuya’s V-Lock System – unrivaled precision and repeatability
The line of magnetic force between the Ultima Recurve Rest’s dual magnets secures the support arm in position consistently, exponentially increasing the reliability of the rest. Shibuya uses only highest quality corrosion-resistant samarium cobalt magnets, known for their constant magnetic force independent of temperature changes.
By placing the adjustment screw between the magnets, Shibuya was able to maintain a super-slim construction (only 3.8mm including adhesive tape), while at the same time using a 3mm screw for comfortable, safe adjustments.
Ultima Recurve Rest can be switched between RH and LH simply by reversing the support arm’s fastening direction.
Industrial-strength adhesive tape
For attachment to the bow riser, Shibuya is employing industrial-strength double-sided adhesive tape from a trusted maker. The flexible, thick tape is ideal for ensuring a lasting and reliable bond.
Engineered for maximum alignment
Ultima Recurve Rest features a straight outline that can be easily aligned to be perpendicular to the bow string angle. The Plunger cutout is precisely machined to match the diameter of popular cushion plungers, such as Shibuya’s DX Plunger.
