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.

    • If things in there were actually a bargain they might’ve moved more stuff.  I’ve picked up a couple things there but not more than 5-10% of the times I’ve visited it.   The pricing coupled with the “as is” , no returns policy kept me a bit gun shy of making it a viable source of gear.
    • At least you’re settling for three strikes and you’re out!   Tough start but at least you know now and have a chance to rebound in some way.  Hopefully you can at least get that late season hunt on the “old” property.  Always tough when the permission starts fading after working and and getting to know a good property.
    • Looks like severe heartburn to me!😄
    • As stated for the above reasons....I totally agree.  I can tell you this much, I also hunt late into the season if I am not tagged out, and I loosen my sling more so my thick gloves will slide through it and I can grip my bow.  I have always shot with one, so i can't speak to shooting without one.  I get a piece of mind having it that I can relax my grip and now worry about the bow "jumping" out of my hand,
    • Antsy?  That would be an understatement.  I got out bow hunting 1 time last year due to the job I was working at the time.  That job is history and am now working a job that will allow me to hunt as much as I used to.  Last month has been pretty much a disaster.......the land that we hunt on, first when we went in to kill the areas for the food plot, the guy running the sprayer decided it would be a good idea to put Roundup on the clover plot I put in last year.  It was thick and awesome and I could tell the deer were just hammering it.  Mostly does and fawns, couple small bucks, but hey, when the does need a man, he usually shows up.  Needless to say, I was a little upset when this happened.  Almost lost it when the guy got done spraying the plot and then drove over to me and said "I killed that plot, we should plant a clover or chicory plot there".  Just shook my head and walked away.  Strike one......then about 2 weeks ago the owner of the property informed us that we would no longer be able to bow hunt on his land.  Only muzzleloader, and that's only if they are completely tagged out by then.  STRIKE TWO........so I just planted over 200 dollars worth of seed in food plots that I may never even get to hunt over.  STRIKE THREE!!!!   So now I am in scramble mode to try and find some private land to hunt or start getting out to scout public land in hopes to find a good spot.  All i can do is make the best out of it and hopefully things work out the best.  Either way.....I'm going to up a tree somewhere and totally loving the experience of sitting in the woods with mother nature, with a huge smile on my face!!!!
    • Hey all...........thinking about pulling the trigger on a new bow for the upcoming season (I know a little late in the year, but it is what it is in my world).  Right now I am shooting an Elite GT500 which is a double cam bow.  Thinking about possibly going to a single cam instead of the double but not really sure if that is the route I want to take.  Looking for opinions from folk who shoot either and what they like don't like about the bow.  Not looking for any bow bashing, just what everyone likes and why.  Thanks!
    • I did this with a friend. I actually think it was what is called back bacon not buckboard as he cut it out of the rear loin instead of the shoulder. IMHO it tastes really good. Like a ham of sorts. If it goes over well then I'll do a batch from the shoulder and I think the extra fat content will work better.   I used a bacon mix from Walton's that I ordered. 
    • Was just out to the Cabela's in Rogers and they are clearing out and closing their bargain cave.  I think I have only bought two things in there in all the years they have been open so it's not a real biggy to me.  Thought I would pass it along.
