I've shot and owned both and I lean towards the Code Red. Easy to tune, bulletproof design, great customer service, quiet, etc. Never had an issue with them. That said, I never had and issue with my QAD either. Probably the perfect post for not helping you out at all, lol. I don't think you can go wrong either way.

I have shot thousands of shots through my trophy taker sl rest with no problems. You can pick it up for $40, it is light weight, and very reliable. I'd say its the best deal on the market for drop away rests by far.
Guys thanks for everything QAD on the way can I install this by myself or should I take it an have it installed?
Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.
