It would help if you post a picture of how the QAD is setup. Also post what the nock height is measured with the launcher in full up position, it should be about 1/8" to 3/16" above perpendicular. It is a good rest and QAD has top notch, no questions asked, consumer service, but there are some setup checks that should first be done: With the bow plumb, the rest should be mounted level. When mounted level the launcher when down should be about 1/8" above the shelf and parallel to it, and when full up it should be perpendicular to the shelf, not leaning back toward or away from the string at brace. The timing cord should be tied-in or clamped no higher than mid-grip, the closer to the bottom of the grip the faster the rest will fall away. I usually tie-in a QAD about even with where the heel of the palm contacts the grip. The launcher should come full up about 1/2" before full draw. This allows the rest to work if there is some creep on the shot. If the launcher comes up too late,
and there is any creep
, then the rest may act as if there is a letdown and will only move to the Capture position instead of falling away. Inspect the rest in the capture position. If the launcher tip is not almost to the containment bar, the dog pin may have been bent by a hard strike on the launcher. Improper timing/clearance of FOB vanes is a common issue that will bend the dog pin. Nock point too low can slam the end of the arrow into the launcher and cause a bent pin. To rule out nock point too low, always start with the nock 1/4" above perpendicular and adjust the nock height for bullet hole at 5' and 10' distance paper tune. If the rest is moved to adjust nock height the timing cord must be readjusted, and it must not be lowered so that the launcher strikes the shelf. Usually when the arrow intermittently strikes the launcher, it is a result of a too low nock point ... that would be the first check I'd recommend.
