How do you figure that there Mr genius? Everything has been fine with it up til now. You can only tighten things so much. Especially plastic clamps. I'm going to do away with the clamp and just serve it in and see what happens. The only way it can fail then is if the cables stretch majorily. Neat concept but Im still not in the crowd that thinks they are the greatest thing.

Those clamps are not that great. No need to get defensive but it's best to tie or serve the cord. There is nothing "wrong" with the rest.

Didn't say there was anything wrong with it. Just giving a problem I ran into with it; would have potentially happened with any cable clamped rest. I'm just not sold on the concept of drop aways yet. Something about them makes me want to try and like them...but the more I try to like them, the more I run into potential problems and resort back to K.I.S.S.

On a side note; I came home from church a few minutes ago and started to work on the bow. The cable slide hadn't slipped any at all as originally thought. I still had to move the slide down about an 1/8 - 1/4 inch and tightened it up. I went out to shoot and noticed something was wrong right off the bat...poundage was off.

Back inside I went; took the tape to it. My bow was out of spec A-A and was a few pounds off in draw weight as well. Somehow...someway...my cables have stretched. Not sure if its the weather or what. I've not had a broken in set of string/cables to do that to me in quite a while. I've heard the Elite factory string/cables were junk...this might be part of that. I had to put 2 twists in to get it back in spec. Then of course, had to retime the rest from where I had just moved it. So it would have happened with ANY cable driven drop away...not just the HDX. Any of them that use the downward cable to activate it would have resulted in contact when they stretched.

WE never put the cable clamp on the bows the Qad comes with just serve it in and you wont have to worry about it. I know people are shooting the qad with the omen and its geting down fast enough. I have had the rest for two years and havent had a problem on my hunting bow.
