    My Monster is supposed to be here today, my question is which one should I put on the Monster? Is there that much difference one to the other? I have the HDII on my DLD and love it. I am not that familiar with the DownForce.

    Please let me know your thoughts. Those who have tried both and prefer one over the other would be a big help…. :thumbup

    I have HD rests on both my bows. I am always cautious with change when I have something that works, so I stuck with the HD when I bought my Reezen. Set up a Downforce on a friends bow last week…..It is unbelievably easy to set up, if I had it to do over again I would put one on my Reezen, in fact I may.

    i like the HD2 but i havent tried the downforce. so my poll and opinion is probably bias. but i dont think you could go wrong with either.

    For those of you who have tried both, I believe one is connected to the up travel cable (DownForce) the other is connected to the down travel cable (HDII), the HDII will only have a small amount of slack on the attached string which I like. How much slack is in the DownForce when at full draw? I had a Whammy rest and that was the only negative it would have a bunch of slack at full draw.

    The HD2 is OK as a shoot-through for hunting. I voted the Down-force as I never did like a drop away. OK for target and good conditions but I would prefer a Lizard tongs or springy for that.
