I also just installed the QAD Ultra Pro Rest. Same great results as last years rest, except this year it has a lockdown device where the fingers will not bounce back up upon release. I have never hunted with it but, I shoot 4 to 5 days a week and it has yet to bounce back on me. It is a bit pricey but, I had heard a few stories about some of the other rests bouncing on people.

I also have been shopping for a "Fall-Away" rest, and found a pretty comprehensive article by Anthony Barnum which compares many of the top "Fall-Away" rests out there. It gets a bit technical but will show how the best tested in the important categories (noise, ease of set-up, etc...).

Worth a look anyway if you are considering purchasing a new rest.

Some info on recently installed Ripcord fall away rest.
All installation and tuning has taken about 20 minutes, with just 2 adjustments for the rest cord length, and with the loop 1/7" over the arm, it showed such good arrow flight I don't think I'll have to perform a paper tuning.
I did a vanes powder clearance test which it also passed for 100%.
All went so flawless even boring, that I really didn't have an idea of what to occupy myself with for the evening hours.
The bow: Hoyt Trykon, 73#, 28", GoldTip Expedition Hunter 400grn,
Carbon Express Edge 350, 512 grn

I'm in no way affiliated, or connected, to Ripcord&Sons Intnl Lmtd For Sustainable Development, and in no way represent their interests in US and abroad.
Hell I've got a single coin from them except the great working fall away rest.
