    Vaportrail Limbdriver Cord Attachment

    I see limbdriver now longer uses the button or split limb attachment parts, and you attach a pad to one limb and tie the cord on.
    Is this working just as well for folks as compared to using the attachment parts?
    I have a split limb attachment part and debating to use it or go with the pad and just tie it on?

    Use the pad and get it as close as you can to the end of the limb without it interfering with your cam.

    If your bow has a yoke cable, I just tie it to the yoke split.

    Ive used limbdrivers now for years and just use to always using the attachment parts.
    Bought a Pro-V and seen how it has the pad now.
    I will give that try!

    I personally shoot the limbdriver pro-v which comes with the limb pad. since its included in the package, you might as well use it too.

    Don't need pads etc. I've just zip tied it on or made a loop in the cord and done it that way. Either one works fine. Started doing that when the button became an incredible pain. Threw it away and have never missed it.

    I've always had the button but really see no need for it. I would just tie it like you do a d-loop to one side of your limb or tie it into the yoke.

    I don't use cord, I have strings made for mine to match the strings on the bows.
    I have the string looped around the limb on two, the round solid limb attachment on another.
    There is, as far as I can tell, no difference in operation between either method.

    I also have the split limb thingy. It works flawlessly as is, so I have no reason to change to something else.

    I just starting shooting with a limb driver. Once I put my bow in a press (that is where the pad sits) it now works it's way down my limb. What's a guy to do? Buy a bunch of pads so you have to change it every time you want to press the bow? Seems like a bad design to me... Thoughts?

    Like someone above said; tie it to the split yoke. Works perfectly

    That's certainly a good solution that a lot of people are using. Another option, if you'd like to attach to a harder mounting point and since you're shooting a Hoyt, is to make a loop in your rest cord and slip it over the QCC (the plastic piece where your yoke mounts) and under the loop on your yoke. It works exceptionally well and gets your rest cord as close to the end of the limb as possible.

    Here's a diagram in case the above isn't clear:

    Either works fine. I found w/tying I had to re-tighten the cord after a few shots as the knot tightened around the limb is all.

    I ended up using the split limb attachment that I had.
    I tried using the pad and going that route, but just like having the "old fashioned" attachment button or in my case split limb attachment.

    Here is how mine is attached to the yoke. I haven't had a problem with it like this at all.
