    QAD or FUSE Ultra Rest????

    I'm a little confused in looking at the new drop down rests like the QAD HD.



    I noticed in the 2011 Fuse catalog a rest VERY similar to the QAD but with the rounded bar at the top, called The Ultra Rest. But on QAD's website it just shows the old HD model.

    I thought someone said from the ATA show the new model with the curved bar was made my QAD not FUSE???

    I'm confused. Can anyone clarify this and are we talking about the exact same rest here??

    QAD is making the rest for Fuse. Same rest. QAD calls it the HDX. Should be available soon.

    Like others have said, its made by the same company.

    ALTHOUGH the "Hoyt" QAD has a different mounting block so it flushes against the back of the riser better.

    Does anyone know if the FUSE one is the same way? I would only assume being that Fuse is made by Hoyt?

    This is a good question. I'd hate to buy the FUSE one since I don't own a Hoyt...

    If you have a new Hoyt with AP camo and the bronze accents, the Hoyt model uses the same bronze color on the rest. Very stylish...

    I just bought the Hoyt Fuse one from Scottie...got it in 2 Days...it fits my CRX Riser better than standard QAD Model...plus new Bronze color matches Hoyt 2011 lineup....Why they went back to that color I don't know? But it is growing on me!

    I have an Elite Pulse and could care less if Fuse is owned by Hoyt. Isn't it just a sticker and and the rest is really a QAD HDX? Is QAD trying to get rid of there old inventory before marketing the HDX? Wondering why the rest has been available since Nov. under the Fuse name but not available under the QAD brand?

    Fuse was higher priced in the store I was in. Buy QAD and pay less for QAD. Buy Fuse and pay more for QAD. Makes no sense. I bought the QAD for less.

    Because they didn't...it's a very different bronze. The new bronze is MUCH darker. You can really see it when you hold the new cams against one of the old ones.

    Update 10/2012. The Fuse runs the same price as the HDX in my local shop. Just put one on my bow since I wanted a HDX and the fuse was in stock.

    QAD or FUSE Ultra Rest????

    I just got a vector turbo in the mail (but I'm out of town) and wondering if my HDX will fit my VT just as well as the fuse? Sorry if I'm hijacking. Thanks.

    Hoyt has their own version of the HDX made by QAD. It is labeled/branded Hoyt. I saw it today. According to other posts it fits the Hoyt bows better. The QAD and Fuse re identical except for decals. The Hoyt version has a different mounting
