I've owned both, a few models of each. No major issues with either. I do shoot the ACE now and absolutely love it. The forks staying up was important to me, plus the ease of the micro adjust was a great addition.I am putting a new drop away and wanted some input on the QAD HDX and Rip Cord Ace. Thougths?
The QAD is made in the USA as well.Both have their followers, and both are proven. The price of Ripcord Code Red is a lot more appealing, but that's not what sold me on a Ripcord. The "Made in the USA" is what sold me (don't know the origin of the QAD). I'm a union man, and I want to keep jobs here. I don't know enough about the QAD, but too many people shoot them with great results just like the Ripcord. Buy either with confidence.
