Bisquit vs Qad HD

I replaced Bis abt 1 mth ago with Qad Honest opinion no improvement in group size 4" at 40 yds 7" at 50 yds Had some problems With one of the Qads I bought not droping down took it apart found small spring out of place had to machine a tool to replace spring.(don't Try to take one apart).I have two Drens set up ,So what I was wondering if any one else had problems and how do you rate your Qads. Thanks

Not to hijack your thread but this is the main reason I use a WB on all my bows, there is nothing to break or come apart and I can shoot a softball sized group at 50 yards.

Re: Bisquit vs Qad HD

Switched to a QAD HDx from a prong rest couple years back and got immediate results in groups. Love it, never a problem.

Benefit of any drop-away is removing contact between the rest and the arrow sooner. A capture rest like a WB maintains contact longer, so any kind of flaw in the form of the follow thru is more likely to be transferred to the arrow.

Save the preaching about "perfect form". I recognize and accept that as a human being, I am imperfect. Jesus was perfect. The rest of us are not. I believe I benefit from some of the forgiveness of a drop away, I think I have a tendency to torque my bow hand sometimes and now with the drop away that little sideways with the riser doesn't get to my arrow as much. I might be full of hooey but sometimes believing is all that is needed. If it is a placebo effect, I don't care.

Tradeoffs in all designs. Drop-aways are more complicated mechanical devices. Capture rests like the WB have more contact with the shaft and fletching. The laws of physics prove both have their unique effects on things. Each have proven to be capable of great accuracy and killing deer.

Unless you are a trained, experienced bow professional, you might be looking at the wrong reason for your groupings. Could be other reasons, not the rest.

A closed mind keeps the truth out

Re: Bisquit vs Qad HD

Two years with my QUAD after switching from a WB. A couple thousand shots and all is well. My groups got tighter, especially at 40 plus yards. Bow seemed to tune better with less adjustments.

RIP Tuff 98-11, So many hunts, so many good times!

QAD all the way. Just can't seem to swallow a WB on any of my bows.

Camp life,it don't get much better!

Re: Bisquit vs Qad HD

Never used a WB. I have used a QAD for 7 years now with no issues. No problems when changing the string and cables....all is well.

Re: Bisquit vs Qad HD

I had a trophy taker on my latest bow since I bought it after years of shooting A WB. shot some deer with it and liked it. Went back to the WB last year IMO it is still the best rest out there for hunting. Went back to fixed BH and went to a single pin sight. I like to keep my hunting rig as simple as possible.

No comparison. QAD is superior to the WB in every aspect.

Re: Bisquit vs Qad HD

Four years in a row someone compares them on here. Every year QAD is clearly the winner. Unsure why this topic is started EVERY year. Any veteran bowhunter clearly wants the QAD.

Lol, guess Im not a veteran then, now all I have to do is somehow revive the 50 plus deer, turkeys and numerous other game Ive shot with my WB.
