    Looking at the Creed and was wondering what rest you guys prefer, the Pro V or the Trophy Taker Smackdown Pro? I have the pro V on a different bow and really like it, bit noisy.  I like the looks of the smackdown pro, but does a person have enough clearance for blazers? Looks like your cock vane might hit the top of containment cage if you shoot cock vane up.
    Tell me your pros and cons of both for those that have used them.

    I know this isn’t one of your choices but have you tried a Ripcord?

    No I have not, I really believe a limbdriven rest of some sort is the best way to go on any bow. It does not affect timing at all or put extra tension on any of the cables. Limbdriven rests are probably one of the fastest dropping rests since they have the limb forcing them to drop.
    On some drop away rest, most are tied in to the buss cable. Unless the rest has a cord adjustment that you can alter right by where it goes into the rest, anytime you make a vertical adjustment to the rest during tuning, you have to adjust the cord.  Because now the cord is either longer or shorter and affects when the rest rises as you draw the bow back.
    The simplicity of a limbdriven is when you make adjustments, all you do is loosen the cord by the rest, make the adjustment, now pull and tighten the cord again. There is no timing of when the rest rises and falls.

    there have been some clearance issues with the cage on the smackdown,they should have made it taller. i can’t understand why they wouldn’t leave plenty of room for the vanes that 95% of hunters use. the new limbdriver pro v has some changes to make the rest quieter. they are nice.

    The TT Smackdown Pro is very quiet. The ‘cage’ is rubber coated and the launcher comes with silencing material pre-applied. The launcher sits behind the shelf so no chance of it hitting the shelf and it is cushioned by two rubber ‘bumpers’.

    I measured the TT Smackdown Pro and it had 5/32″ clearance with the New Blazers on a .295″ o.d. shaft.

    I am leaning towards the tt. smackdown pro, but I tried one last year for literally a day. Realized my blazer was hitting the top of the containment cage. If they have fixed it or made it bigger, I would probably get that rest.
    The limbdriver pro V works great on the bow I have now, only complaint is that it is on the loud side. They did upgrade this year with a bigger stop that the arm comes down on and have a thick rubber piece there instead of the cheap rubber or whatever they had before.

    I put the smack down pro on my creed. And it is by far the best and easiest rest I have ever put on a bow.

    Smack down pro!  I have had one on my new bow for about a month!  Love it…easy to tune, quiet, accurate and appears bullet proof!!

    None of the above. I went with the  QAD HDX. My Blazers were making contact with the containment bar so I removed it, but I discovered tonight that the rest was badly timed, so I fixed it and now no contact.

    That said, I am seriously considering going to a Spot Hogg Premiere. It’s so simple and foolproof compared to limb or cable driven rests, and good for hunting and 3D. Prong power.
