The QAD has zero timing issues. Set the cord for full draw and you are done. Full capture of arrow in ready position. No, you can't shoot it upside down but the arrow isn't going anywhere either.

Well, mine shoots bullets on paper and tuned in less than 15 minutes using the French Method. That's with the Hunter model. With the Pro model that time would ahve been probably 10 minutes. So, not sure about the problems you are having.

Didn't have much problems with the WB either.

at the moment I'm shooting 2215's through my WB but the new easton axxis 400spine arrows I ordered are smaller in diameter and won't be touching the whiskers all around. Is that a problem ?
And since blazers are hard to get here in europe, I'll need to find something that's a durable, but 2", 4" or 5" ?

You don't want the arrow shaft touching the whiskers all around. You just need contact with the black, stiffer whiskers at the bottom.

Frank,

Blazers or duravanes - 2"
Regular plastic vanes - 4" are long enough

I've never used 5" and have a 30" draw and used to shoot 32" arrows w/ Rocky Mt 125 gr bh.

Also, wait until after they refit you for length. You will probably be able to shorten your arrows if you really want to.

I guess it has to do with personal expectations..Obviusly many people have fun shooting with it and do well.

I've tried the WB and found it louder and could not get the pine point sharp accuracy that I was looking for.

Furthermore I've passed the arrow manually threw the WB on several different days and noticed that the fletching took different patterns very often ...

When I switched to a drop away, the difference was astonishing !!
I started to break arrows again ...
Long distance...what a difference.

WB in the garbage for me...
Just my experience..

Frank,

On the WB, get size medium for regular carbon arrows (you want daylight around the arrow on all 3 sides). If you are shooting Axis, MFX, or another small diameter arrow, get the small WB. I think the large is mostly for aluminum. I made this mistake and it was a pain.
