Quality Archery Designs Ultra-Rest Pro HD Drop-Away Arrow Rest
The Best Rest On The Market
I have been shooting QAD rests for 5 years now. Before that I went through just about every rest out there.
This one is just about perfect.
It is full containment- even on letdown.
It provides the benefits of a drop away.
Timing adjustments are easy with a set screw on the thumbwheel (this feature alone is worth EVERY CENT of the price difference between this and the Hunter or LD models).
It is quiet.
It is reliable.
I have installed and helped others install HUNDREDS of this rest.
I have seen only TWO problems total- the first was a defect out of the box, the second was premature wear from improper setup.
The key to this rest is the timing. Unlike traditional drop aways, you want this rest to come up to the full 90 degree position during the last 1/2" of your draw- NO SOONER. The way it is designed, if it comes up sooner, you actually slow the rest down when it drops- that means fletching contact.
If you set it up properly, you can shoot it on any bow at any speed- PERIOD. Anyone who tells you differently doesn't understand how to properly set it up.
I have set it up on multiple bows shooting over 340 fps with no issues whatsoever. Timing is the key.
If you set it up or have it set up properly, you will never shoot another rest.

I replaced my vane killer Whisker Biscuit rest with this QAD Ultra Pro Rest HD and it is AWESOME!!!!!! I have it on my Matthews Reezen 6.5 set at 72 lbs. shooting 284 fps. and do not have any fletching contact at all. My groups have closed up and speed has increased greatly. I would recommend a pro shop install it, so that it is correctly attached to the down cable. My chord was cut short and run through the cable then burnt on the opposite side and it works perfectly. Can't wait to lay the smackdown on a whitetail this season!

I bought this rest to stop the vanes from needing replaced or changing brushes on my octane. Installed myself at the range and within ten minutes was robin hooding arrows at 25 yards and after adjusting the sight can hold good groups out to about 80 yards. Would not recommend the cable clamp on the down cable. I used a draw machine at the proshop and served the release string into the down cable and have run just over 500 shots through it and only problem is the fleace on the launcher is coming off. It is pricey but I shoot every day and will hunt whatever I can to stay sharp with my bow.
