Quality Archery Designs Ultra-Rest LD Drop-Away Arrow Rests
This is by far the best rest I have ever used on a bow. Simple! Only took me 5 minutes to install following the provided instructional video and only another 10 min infront of the target to insure my tuning was correct. The lock down technology is awesome and insures no fletching contact due to bouncing. The provided felt was nice, I didnt notice that at the store and I was glad it came with. I use a Mission Endeavor by Mathews at about 290 FPS and I have no fletching contact using blazer vanes.
It is a little loud, I added a mini limbsaver to the locking leaver where the dampener is on the HD model (if you can afford the HD model just go with it) I also added a limbsaver drop pad to my riser shelf and its alot quieter now. (see pics) I also used serving to wrap the felt on the forks, not because it was coming off, just incase.

I just purchased this rest a few days ago. After reading several reviews in bow hunting mags, I decided to go with this rest. I took my bow into the Bass Pro Shop near my home and had them install this for me. I've only been into bow hunting now for about 8 months, so I am by no means an expert. Once installed by the Bass Pro Shop tech, we took it into there range and shot about 6 arrows at the target, before finally getting it on paper. I took the bow home and continued to fine tune it. It didn't take me long to start putting good 3 inch groups together at 20 yards. It does take a little time to get it adjusted just the way you want it, but it is worth it so far. I switched from a wisker bisket to this drop away. I'm happy with the results so far. Again this is just a review from a very amature bow hunter, hope this might help in making your decisions.

I purchased the QAD rest for my Bowtech Guardian and it works great. My brother has the same bow only a year older with the same QAD rest. My bow is shooting around 300 fps and my brother's bow is shooting over 300 fps and neither of our arrow flechings have hit this rest.
This rest also holds the arrow in place at all times. If one has to turn the bow side ways to get around a limb to shoot, in the past one had to use their finger to hold the arrow in place. This QAD rest holds the arrow in place even if the bow is turned up side down.
The QAD rest is extremely easy to use and install. I installed mine myself. I just don't know why the camo is so much more expensive than the black.

I have been very faithfull to my prong style rests for years I do not like change. If it is not broke do not fix I always say. Lets put it this way.. I invest alot of time and miles on every bow that I have owned and take care of my gear. My last bow was just retired of 10 years. A new one has just entered my long history of killen and grillin.I look for quality and do my home work to find the dependable eqiupment I can trust.I gave some thought of the fallaway rests and decided to stay with what works 'PRONG. I figured more to possibly go wrong. My dealer and freind of 18 rears talked me into trying this rest. I did not set it up myself.He did.Do I recomend......The good reviews before me say it all. One bad ...ss Rest.
