    I’ve got a MR7 on order and I’d like to build it up as a dual use bow, where I do 3D and hunt with it.

    I’m on the fence about which rest, the QAD, Ripcord, or Limbdriver (Not the new one)

    My hunting style is both from ground blinds spot and stalk.
    And I should add that money is tight these days.

    Any opinions?

    I said QAD as that’s a rest so many guys here have had so much luck with. Honestly, I don’t think you could go wrong with any of them.

    Thanks for the point of view Sticks, if anyone else has an opinion, feel free to fling it out there…

    Looking at all the choices out there and weighing my options based on cost and perceived user happiness/performance is interesting. I guess I find it hard to believe that a QAD top of the line is really $25-$45 better than some of the other options.

    As you go up in price it’s usually little options that start to make up the cost like micro adjustability for windage tuning, maybe a harmonic damper, in QAD’s top line a thumbwheel for tuning the drop cord. I’d say in most cases just about any rest out there is capable of performing better than the shooter, especially the ones you listed, just a matter of what bells and whistles you feel you need.[/code]

    I really like my Limbdriver. I like the concept of a limb driven rest. I’ve personally never found a need for a full containment rest. Maybe I’m old school but my finger holds the arrow on the shelf just fine…and I don’t shoot upside down.
