Advice... Drop away's

Ok folks, need some help.
This is the third time my QAD HDX screwed up and required replacement. Couldn't tune it for nothing. The tune on my bow was perfect, then wham, the rest arm wouldn't drop on time like the last like the last two. IM DONE... Rip cord? Trophy Taker??? What yous guys think???

Ripcord? Nope.

Trophy Taker? Yep!

'Nuff said!

I don't hunt turkeys because I want to, I hunt turkeys because I have to.

Re: Advice... Drop away's

We never had any trouble with the arms not falling quick enough? Sounds like the cord length wasn't adjusted correctly when it was attached to the cable? You only want it long enough that it just brings the arms up when you draw, could be it was too short?

I was thinking that... but the last 2 times the problem was inside my rest, so QAD sent me new ones. They are great on the warranty, but this happened three times. I checked it and the cord is placed and adjusted properly.

Hamskea is something to think about. They have a very solid product. I also have a Ripcord Ace that I have never had a problem with.

I really like my Ripcord Ace. I just bought it this year but so far it has worked just fine. My previous rest was a QAD HDX.
