I've had QADs, Smackdown Pros, and now a Hamskea Trinity Pro. To this point for hunting I love the features of the QADs, especially the containment and lockup features. The Trinity is new to me so the verdict is out for me on that one.

Hamskea Trinity. You can shove the Trophy Taker Smackdown Pro. POS cost me a buck on Kodiak.

I have several Limbdrivers that I have had for many years and they have been good rests.

I switched to Trophy Taker Smackdowns because I liked the containment feature.

The spring failed in both of my Trophy Taker Smackdowns. I am back to Limbdriver rests.

Another vote for the Hamskea Trinity. Although a bit heavier than most, its built like a tank. If you have a tendency to beat up your equipment, this rest will outlast your bow.

"You can shove the Trophy Taker Smackdown Pro"

What happened Brotsky? I had one that a screw came loose and it wouldn't raise. Fixed it and it was good. But it would have sucked had it happened on a hunt for sure. Have another one on my kid's bow. Seems to work great and it is one of the quietest rests I've had.

Hamskea is best overall. Limbdriver Pro (original) is best bang for the buck.

I had the same issue as Ken, spring failed on the first day of my hunt. I was able to jury rig it back on the boat but it was not 100%. Learned a couple important lessons from that debacle. #1, always bring a spare rest, #2, always bring a spare rest.

Hamskea way above the rest

Really like the Hamskea Epsilon. Compact so it doesn't interfere with a quiver full of arrows. Uses the C.O.R. dovetail mount if available on your bow.

Limb Driver Pro V. Light, simple, reliable.

Hamskea for several years now. Had a Trophy Taker Smackdown Pro until the shaft operating the arrow rest sheared in two. Granted, after many hundreds of arrows but don't have the confidence in this rest any longer.

I’m with 12yards on the containment of the QAD…for this reason I may try the ripcord… I had a hamskea but wasn’t fond of the launcher…

Thanks for All the input guys!

Anything by Hamskea is better than the other manufacturers in my opinion.

Just had the archery shop order me a left handed Hamskea Trinity, to replace the QAD on my Vertix. Gonna change out the modules, string, and harness, as well. My shoulders are roached, and there’s no reason that I need to be pulling 70 lbs. Looking forward to get things dialed in and see how much I’m gonna like the Hamskea.

Yeah the lock up feature on the QAD is great until it fails to drop, twice...

I think my rest is called a hamskea hybrid hunter. It has never failed me yet and was easy to set up.

Hamskea, built to last a longtime and very well thought out.
