    QAD Ultra Rest: anybody use their rests, if so what are your thoughts?

    Wondering if anyone has used a QAD Ultra Rest. I have heard good things about them and am thinking about getting one. I would probably go with the Hunter model because of my budget but I really like the lock down feature of the LD line. I'm wondering if anyone has problems with the Hunter flipping up and contacting their fletchings. Thanks in advance for any input.

    I use the QAD Hunter and have never had a problem it flipping up. It's a great fall away rest. I have had mine for 2 years and it's great with no issues. You will be happy with it for sure.

    Thanks, twp. Seems like every product I ask about on here you have it and really like it haha. Great minds think alike maybe? What bow do you shoot by the way?

    It all depends on what kind of hunting you are going to be doing. I have a trophy taker, Shaffer’s, and whisker biscuit. The only thing about QAD is that the prongs are plastic, and hunting late season here in North Dakota sometimes plastic and cold weather do not get along.
    1. Yes drop ways are probably the way to go when shooting loner distance
    2. Hunting spot-&-stock the Whisker Biscuit is the way to go. Very tough, easy to turn in the field if needed .and your arrow is not going to fall out or bang around when stocking up on animals.

    I like the idea that "Great minds think alike".

    I found that the little bar that goes over the top of the forks sits a little low and can get in the way of the fletching moving through. I would love to see taller forks on the rest. Other than that, I love the rest! Mine has bounced down many a rocky hill attached to my bow, and hasn't given me a second of grief yet.
    People in SUV's and suburbs will kill more game animals than a man with a bow, ever could.

    I shot with several QAD's. I bought the QAD pro HD. It was noticably quieter than the hunter and a little quieter than the LD. Its a great rest.

    I have had pros HD s my son has the cheaper one and it is a hair noiser but some mole skin on the shelf of the bow will fix that.
