What is a good drop away rest?
« on: May 03, 2020, 04:31:32 PM »
Bought a trophy taker for the first time and after around 300 shots the spring boke and shots went wild before figuring it out. First time using a drop away rest but was impressed with paper tuning and good groups up until the spring incident. I used to bow hunt a lot 20 years ago and I am figuring out things have come a long way since. Looking for any suggestions on a good rest for Elk hunting that will last while shooting al summer and into Elk season.

All my bows have a NAP Carbon Apache rest on them, which you cant get anymore. If or when I ever need a new rest, Id look at a QAD.

I really like the QAD ultra rest. I've used it for a year now with no problems.

Also have the QAD Ultra Rest and have never had any issues with it.

I've had a RipCord for several years.  Had an issue with the original cord wearing and RipCord replaced it quickly and with no questions.

Ripcord should warranty any problems if you contact them.

I have been using a QAD Ultra Rest for many years. My first one had problem of dropping too easy if I bumped the arrow on a twig or something while still hunting, this was after a couple years of use. I sent it in for repairs and they sent me a new one. Since then I have had 3 with no issues at all.

I have used a couple Ripcords and my daughter has one and we have never had a problem with any of them. The bow I'm shooting now came with a QAD on it and I have had no problems with it either.

I looked at the QAD Ultra and will try it. Like the fact you can let down and it still captures your arrow with no added pieces on your bow unlike the Trophy Taker.

Thanks for the help.

That is the reason I chose the QAD many years ago.
