Default Good QUIET full containment drop away?

Been shooting a WB for years but want to go to a drop away. I shot a NAP once but it made alot of noise on the shot. Anything silent out there?

I recently purchased a QAD ultra-rest LD to replace my WB and I'm EXTREMELY happy with it. Very quiet, full containment and (has made my bow) very, very accurate. Also, no ruined fletchings!

i know alot of guys shoot the QAD but i like the ripcord better. dont know if its quieter i just like the way it operates. i most the guys i know including me just put moleskin on the shelf and that seems to help otherwise they do make limbsaver pads for drop away rests

I went from the whisker to a NAP Sizzor. I shot and tried a number of others but settled on this one. In fact I have one on each of my bows my son also shoots the same.

I'm not sure which NAP you had noise with but these don't make any noise that I am aware of. If you simply set it off without shooting the bow, it makes a snap. But even with the Bowtech bows they are on I can't hear it over the bow when shooting.

They were easy to set up too.

I have 2 NAP Apache rest. They are accurate and deadly quiet. Built rock solid and easy to install and adjust.

Thanks guys. I think I'll try the QAD on my target bow first since it's so close to opening day. Don't want to fool around with my set up too much rite now.

Ripcord Code red, zero noise.
if its set up right there are no shelf issues.
