A drop away for sure. Yep, the QAD Ultra is one of the best, as is the Vapor Trail Limbdriver (made right here in Minnesota). Also check out the Ripcord and Trophy Taker. Can't really go wrong with any of them.

I have had very good luck with the Vapor Trail Limbdriver and love that it is made right here in Minnesota. My dad shoots a QAD Ultra and loves it. Don't think you can go wrong either way.

I hear a few complaints about guys not getting their QAD timing right when setting them up.  Is this a frequent problem?

Only if you don't know how to set them up.  It's pretty easy actually.

I have QAD Ultra Pro HDs on  both my bows and haven't had any issues.  Timing them right is important.  Archery Country set up both of mine.  One of mine is going on 8 years old.

I have a Ripcord Code Red on my old Guardian and I put a QAD HDX on my new Experience. They both have worked flawless for me so far but of the two I like the QAD more because the launcher stays up when letting down. That being said if I had known about the new Ripcord Ace before I bought the QAD I probably would have went that route instead. It does everything the QAD does plus it has micro adjustability.

Well, my 8 year old QAD started acting up.  I started getting fletching contact for some reason.  So I tried retiming and still had issues.  Brought it to the shop and they said it was shot.  Springs inside were wore out.  So I put a Trophy Taker Smackdown Pro limb driven rest on the old Vectrix XL.  So far I really like it.  Quieter than the QAD for sure.

    • I agree to that statement. Losing Butler sucks, but I think it'll work out for the wolves. If you look at what we should get in return for Butler vs giving up Lavine, Dunn, and Markennan in the trade, we're doing alright. No way we could have kept Lavine with his huge contract and potential further injuries and Dunn (who I like as a player) probly won't get better than he currently is. Markennan is the one I wish we still had, but we should be able to pull a couple young shooters and maybe a draft pick or veteran in this Butler deal.    Time will tell.. 
    • Looks like it does have a cast bit on it... I assume from the ION-x
    • Nice, fat, very active crawlers on a lindy rig should drive the fish wild.   One of my most successful methods on inland lakes is a crawler with air injected into it on a Lindy.
    • No problem, cross the swamp (don't fall in) then up the hill. I didn't get a chance to eat the lobster until tonight, wasn't as good as ones I have harvested earlier in the fall.
    • I rigged 4 dozen dekes with factory Lifetime rigs and tried them out over the weekend.  I like them so far but think I’ll like the custom rigs I make with the kit a little more.  I ordered 4 different lengths in 2 different weights to help figure out my preference.   One thing I know is I don’t like mushroom anchors.  I hunt in weedy areas and they just stay goobered up too much on retrieval.  I’ll try egg weights on my custom made rigs but think they’ll pull more weeds than I want too.  Bell weights seem nice.  I’ll keep experimenting though.   I find I’m not wanting to use the slotted decoy bags while I’m hunting with these rigs.  Seems like a waste of time and space to have them until I’m ready to put them away.   I did lose a carabiner the first day.  That’s something I have to get used to keeping track of.   Keeping in mind that nothing is perfect, I’ll rate them 8/10.  Pretty happy so far.
    • Warroad. I got it to serve as hunting camp this fall. 
    • My gold finches have started to thin out. Looks like mostly young ones hanging around. They’ve also switched from nyjer to sunflower chips as their preferred food.    The grackles and blackbirds left after I proofed all my feeders. But they haven’t even been in the neighborhood. Are they quick to fly south?
    • I’m glad we got KAT locked up now. Whatever we get for Butler, hopefully it’s multiple pieces, as depth is going to be our major issue. Will Wiggins actually step up this year? Not likely, but I will continue to hope.
