    I'm adding one to my X-mas list and need to know which one would be the better choice. I have pretty much narrowed it down to these two.

    I am open to other options, but they must have the following features...
    - Stay up when bow is let down
    - No bounce back
    - Must have both windage and elevation adjustments
    - Can be cocked up without drawing bow

    Let me know problems you've had and why you picked your choice.

    I've had 3 or 4 different bows with QAD's for years now, no issues. Ever.

    I had a QAD and am shooting a Ripcord now... take your pick. I think I remember the ripcord was SLIGHTLY easier to install and tune but neither are difficult.

    same as rat. Had 'em both and couldn't tell you one pro/con that would make one better than the other. neither have ever given me a problem. I'd go with whatever I could get a better deal on, myself.

    Are we talking about the Ripcord ACE? not the ripcord code red right?

    Mine is the Red so no help on the ace.

    I'm not particular enough and have only used the Ripcord and thus far have had zero issues.
