Total fletching clearance and full arrow containment
Mathews Harmonic Damping® removes excess vibration and noise
Smart Rest Technology™ tells it to drop when fired, but not when letting down
This rest is a partnership between Mathews and QAD. The rest mounts to the bow using Mathews' noise dampener. I'm new to compound bows and have shot with this rest maybe a hundred times. When cocked it holds in a pre-cocked position just short of vertical. When you cock it back to full vertical and quickly release it, it drops. Otherwise it drops only to the pre-cocked condition. It's worked perfectly for me every time. I don't notice it at all while shooting.
If I drop it with my thumb it makes a thud. No noticeable bounce or vibration. I'm not a hunter and I don't know how the thud compares to other similar products. I don't notice the sound when I'm shooting.
