What about toolrest and tear-outs?

>I appreciate your insights on this. I finished a cherry platter/bowl after I read John Lucas' posting and things improved dramatically. I still did not get rid of all tear outs but it was reduced to shallow bruising that was removed quickly with moderate grit sandpaper. Do you think use of a curved toolrest (which I don't have)makes it easier to deal with tear-outs?
