i have shot both ripcord and now the HDX both did great but i like that you can let down and the lauch arm stays up. been caught too many times letting down and the arrow comes down on the riser.


That a very nice feature of the QAD. The cams of the Monster don't make "letting down" smoothly an easy task. With the other drop away rests I've shot the arrow always falls off the shelf.

You can't go wrong with the HDX or a ripcord. You will love the HDX. Easy to tune and very sturdy.

Have you tried either of these? Both have a bar to contain the arrow so please tell me why the biscuit is better in your opinion.

The biscuit is just dead quiet and fail proof. Keep it simple is my game.

i dont really agree on dead quiet and no rest is fail proof, the wrong pump or knock on it and it can move or break.

the misconception on the fall aways is they are "complicated" or require monitoring. Once set up properly (which is easy to do in about 2 mins) they are no different then a biscuit minus the fact you get more speed and better accuracy out of them.

trust me i shot a biscuit for YEARS before moving to a ripcord and i cant believe i didnt do it sooner.

I originally put the new revolution rest on a Helim. The revolution was OK, but upgraded to the QAD HX and my groups tightened significantly. I,m sold on the QAD.

I ran into my first problem with the HDX. That's not good since I've not even had it a month yet and probably got less than 300 shots on it.

Everything has been good til Friday evening I went out to shoot a bit and on my first shot I heard a loud noise and my arrow hit about 2 feet low. I looked at my bow and noticed the felt stuff on the launcher was ripped a bit...meaning my arrow had hit it and that it hadn't dropped down fast enough. Upon further investigation...I figured out the cable slide had slipped up the cable and wasn't fully rotating the launcher it into the full draw position....thus it wasn't dropping fast enough on the shot. This was fine Thursday. I've not moved anything since...that thing has just worked its way loose or something.

I don't like that at all; if I decide to keep the drop away on there I will have to do away with the slide and just serve it into the cable. Glad that happened in the yard instead of in the treestand or I would have been throwing an arrow rest across the woods.

Honestly this doesn't mean there is anything wrong with the rest. It means it wasn't installed properly.
