    Seems like the QAD or the Rip cord are the most popular. I definitly want a full containment. Which would you choose.

    I have to tell you that the LD is an awesome rest. I have the hunter on my bow. It has a LITTLE more noise than the LD, but that is because there is NO noise with the LD. My hunter has just a little vibration that I am trying to figure out how to get rid of :thumbup

    BloodBath can we get a pick of your LD mounted on the bow, So far to get mine to clear the vanes the shop had to lower it and now its fingers click the rizor.

    I don’t have the LD. I have the hunter, but they are the same height. The problem is that your nock point is too low. You are going to have to move your nock point up just a little bit. I moved mine up and I am shooting bullet holes along with a straight line for walk back :thumbup . Here is the link to a pic of my bow though

    I have the QAD Ultrarest Pro LD and initially I also had the ‘finger’ hitting the riser’s shelf. But, the arrow was level below the berger button hole height. I raised the rest, which also required raising the nock point, so the arrow was at the berger hole height and that gave me a good 3/16″ gap between the shelf and fingers. Problem solved.

    I also shoot cock vane up with centershot just shy of 3/4″. Blazers (.6″ vane height) have no clearance issues.
    Hope this helps [=}=]

    However, I’m not too sure the QAD and Ripchord are the most popular…a lot of Trophy Taker and Muzzy drop aways being used and now the SH Whammy is getting a following :smt69

    I’ll make no claim to being skilled with the English language, but I read your post to simply mean “move the nock point up”… I suppose it’s logical that the rest would have to move up too, and that it should be at the berger hole height.

    So, yes…we are saying the same thing. [=}=]

    Thanks, I thought I was loosing my ability to speak :D . Sometimes I do that when I am tired. I guess I should have expounded on my explination and included raising the rest along with the nock point. Sorry :-S

    I have used the Ripcord for three seasons with no problems at all. Best rest that I have ever used.

    Thanks guys, I had decided, that I was going to have to adjust it myself as you say. The dealer didn’t agree, so I’m off on my own to make it work.

    Oh and I am shooting cock vane high as well too.

    Follow QAD’s instructions for adjustment. I found its easier to make a knot in the cord at the rest attachment and leave just enough tension on the cable/chord connector so that when you draw back the cord can slip through the connector but the connector will not slide on the cable, play with the screws to put more pinch on the cable than the cord…too little tension and the fingers don’t come all the way up, too much tension and the cord won’t slip through the connector. You want the friction on the cord so it slips the connector and about 1/2″ to 1″ from full draw the fingers are in the full upright position. That’s how I have found I can get a silent operation.

    If the fingers come up too early, that will also cause them to smack the riser’s shelf.
