    Actualy, I mailed the QAD people, and we FINALLY got my drop away dropping fast. First time I've had total vane clearance. But if you want to try it, I may want to sell it again once I see how it works with FOBs.

    check out vital gear , my dropaway set up easy , and has been 100%trouble free. i feel they make a cheezy set of sights but they nailed it on the fallaway. basic model hasnt changed much in years, they started using a spring set on the arms instead of bands on the old ones.most of all, i hunt . only. and this rest is the most silent of all i know of.period.test it.

    Of all the dropaway rests I have sold I would have to say that all things considered the Limb Driver is the best choice out there.

    I have used a few drop aways and I would have to say that the ripcord is a good rest. Currently I am using and love the Spot Hogg Whammy and it works great. As far as the drop zone it offers the most fletch clearance of any rest on the market but it has a few negatives. As mentioned it needs a rebuild kit cause the bushing sleeve wears. Also the launcher arm is not very stable. If you watch it work on a slo motion camera you can see the launcher shake and wiggle before it drops. For hunting you can get by with it but for any target it is no good.

    Trophy Taker, IMO, the best you can get. I've been shooting them for a few years now, and I've put them through hell. I have never had to reset one once it was on a bow.

    i use a trophy taker and really like but i would go with the QAD ultra rest because it has a bar that goes over the arrow and keeps it from falling off

    I strictly hunt, but I shoot a lot all year (until I screwed up my shoulder) and I really liked the Limb Driver.

    There are several Good Dropaways on the market, and a lot may be personal preference. The Limb Driver is definitely the most consistent and easy to tune rest out there.

    I think for the priceyou cant beat the TT proghorn or shakey hunter, I have had 0 problems with my shakey, But If I was going to buy a new 1 it would be the pronghorn, just my 2 cents.
