Transfer reactions yield important spectroscopic information about isotopes, including spin and parity assignments to nuclear levels and spectroscopic factors. The corresponding information is still lacking for many nuclei far from stability, e.g. in the region of the ``island of inversion'' [1]. A previous experiment [2], studying the d($^{30}$Mg, $^{31}$Mg)p reaction with MINIBALL at REX-ISOLDE, has shown the need to cover an extended angular range in order to unambiguously determine the transferred angular momentum. Therefor a new setup for transfer experiments in inverse kinematics at REX-ISOLDE was designed which consists of two segmented annular detectors and a barrel of position sensitive strip detectors. The status and the results of first tests of this new setup as well as simulations will be presented. [1] C. Thibault et al., Phys. Rev. C 12, 644 (1975) [2] M.
