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.

    • Thanks for the info, I will give them a call.
    • The one thing I can think of that your son could have done differently is that maybe he should have got a name from the land owner and sought out the other hunter for a discussion before hand. The hunting woods are a much safer place when everyone hunting the area knows the whereabouts and plans of each other hunter in the woods.   That's not to say that the other 50 year old guy isn't being an unreasonable, entitled, first class a hole but part of this may be due to a misunderstanding if there was not a discussion prior to hunting season. 
    • I agree with you 100%. If it were me who had the permission to hunt I would approach things differently but when my son is involved I would back down and use it as a learning lesson. I would however tell the lady that your son is not going to be hunting her land and the exact reason why. If it were my land, I would want to know.
    • Horns make some otherwise normal people crazy. I'm not a horn hunter myself and that is one reason why.  
    • Dang what a shame not cool at all. I agree with leech. That’s more than enough acreage for more than one hunter to hunt. If he had the guts to go talk to the neighbor lady and she was fine with it then all is good. If this “kid” ( old guy) has an issue with it then he needs to grow up It’s not his land. Not many kids even hunt anymore so the fact that he wants to is great. Let him hunt some and if it continues to be an issue then maybe just tell him to pull the plug? I’m also dealing with some crazy neighbors right now that continue to feed. The CO has been out many times and they still do the same thing tickets have been given and there’s been some talking. I hate to “ tadle” on others but when people think they have rights that others shouldn’t have then that’s where a CO may come into play. Not saying you need to do this but if he comes barging to the door and demanding your son leave then maybe something needs to change and maybe he shouldn’t be allowed there. 
    • Leech- I thought about that same thing.  I do not know the guy or the family, so unsure of what the dynamic is there.    Thanks for the responses.  We are going to head over there this evening and talk with the lady. My plan is take it down either way.  If she says he can still hunt, and boot the other guy, or even let them both hunt i dont think if the experience is going to be anything we are looking forward to dealing with.  We have 10 acres at our house he's hunting too, and going to do some more knocking on doors.  I get being protective over his "spot". It just bothers me that he would be so unwilling to allow a 15 yr old to experience what he clearly loves to do.  Life will go on.  We will be in Montana in Oct, chasing elk and mule deer. He wont be missing out!  Those bucks are roaming the river bottom we live on, maybe the ultimate revenge will be having a chance to shoot one of them on our own land we are grooming for wildlife together.
    • Dang, I just moved Duff higher on the LIKE count!  😕
    • Beisswengers Hardware in New Brighton.  Top sales of Honda Gens and excellent service. Beisswengers
    • I would get a dlb ladder stand and sit with my kid as much as I could.  Don't let the dude bully you if you have the right to be there as well.  She may not know the age of this person if he had his kid go down there and get permission and he is really doing the hunting?  
    • He has permission from the landowner, let him hunt. If the 50 year old does anything to affect his hunt that is "hunter harassment" and he should be charged.
