stuann, I noticed you have a Sinclair rest. Can you answer a couple of questions for me? I'm thinking about buying a new front rest and have been looking at the John Loh, Fulghum, and Seb models. Great looking, but pricey. Is the Sinclair BR front rest equal to these? I've heard that it is not near as smooth. How would you compare it to these heavy hitters? Thanks, Mike Martin.
