I have always used QAD but i've been hearing good things about Limb driver pro v's. What is everyone using and their opinions on these?

Had QAD, it was ok and did its job. Ditched it for the limb driver pro and love this rest. Have one on my insanity and alien x and all my bows for now on will be limb driven.

the proV looks nice, never tried it though. Dont really have a need for a full containment rest

I still like my original limbdriver, they are a really good hunting, indoor and 3d rest and simply do the job year after year.

What makes the limb driver pro better? I'm rather new to compounds as I have been shooting trad bows for some time now.

For me, its just fool proof to set up, never have contact issues, If I were to break the cord in the field I could swap it out in a minute and be back up and running and not have to worry about the timing being off. I just like them and have not had a reason to change since switching over. I only bought the QAD for the full containment but I just dont find it needed and not having it has not effect my hunting at all or cost me a shot at a deer

I have a lot of friends shooting the ProV for 3D and hunting. They never have any problems with them.

So really the only con of the Limbdriver is that isn't "fully contained" like the QAD?

The original limbdriver pro is good because:

1. it uses a flexible steel launcher like a blade rest

2. it stays up till the last moment and then gets jerked down out of the way of the fletching

3. it isn't as finicky when it comes to the timing of the cord, as the cord stretches or changes a little your shooting is not affected at all.

4. there is no setting the rest before drawing the bow

5. your arrow never falls off of the rest even in windy conditions compared to a blade rest

Some of my reasons are just personal preference but a few of them were more performance related but those are some of the main reasons I enjoy my limbdriver.

I am using the QAD. Why, because I like the full containment aspect of the QAD for the way I hunt. I find that it is just as easy to set up as the Limbdriver and it has been just as dependable as my Limbdriver was, I just like the full containment aspect.

For hunting, I don't think you can beat the QAD HDX. I use a Trophy Taker Smack Down Pro for 3d, which is limb driven, very fast, and sits behind the riser with it's own landing pad so you have more vertical adjustment. Put a Hamskae Versa Rest on my indoor target bow, expensive and a bit bulky, but worth the money. Can set it up anyway you want from a lizard tongue, to a limb driven top or bottom or cable driven drop down. Really like that rest, but wouldn't use it for hunting. Also have a ripcord code red, which would be my 2nd choice for hunting. All have advantages and disadvantages, but all work very well if installed correctly.
