Thanks to the input from members of this board, I am now in the market for a QAD Ultra rest. I'm finding that there are different models ranging in price from $47 to $136. I'm planning on hunting with this bow (Mathews Q2) and doing some target work. Is there a great diffference between the Hunter model and the Pro HDX? I don't mind spending more money if I'm getting a better product but on the other hand, I don't want to spend more than I have to. I'm looking for a capture rest but after that, accuracy is my main goal.

The hunter model does not lock down while the HDX version does. Definitely a reason behind that price difference! Best rest on the market IMO. You will not be disappointed in the HDX

Hunter doesnt have much if any left/right or up/down adjustments either.

Had one on my son's craze and stepped him up to the LD. I have a trophy taker on my bow that I'm going to step up to an HD or HDX.

Been seeing some decent prices on e bay recently.

On the HD model you have a set screw to take out and change cord and adjust also on the outside, LD is internal and you can't adjust with it. So if you make adjustments while setup of moving rest you can just loosen set screw and re adjust the cord tension without moving on string. The HD has harmonic dampening.....which IMO doesn't do much. Get the LD and save a few bucks.

the hunter model does not have the lifetime warranty like the other models. I've owned the original since 2005 or 6 and have not had one issue with it. I bought the hd model a year ago for my new bow and it has served me well too. the hunter model works fine I got a buddy on a budget who owns one the better models have more adjustments and a bigger thumb button to raise the rest. but the biggest difference between the hunter model and the other model is the lifetime guarantee although I've never had an issue with mine..

The LD does every thing the HD and HDX does for less money. I bought a brand new LD last year for 50.00 shipped on archery talk. Do some shopping if your on a budget.

I personally love my Hunter model. I don't tweak my bow much because I only hunt with it.

I agree, and I'm sure a few guys I know who have an HDx would also agree.

Been shooting the HDx model for over a year, been flawless so far and has worked in the rain, snow, and freezing rain.

My wife got me a QAD HDX this Christmas and I love it. Very nice rest and easy to set up. Lots of good videos on youtube and it comes with a DVD.
