Of course, a rest that incorporates the best qualities of each style would be ideal, and the QAD Ultra-Rest ($110; 800-932-4868; qadinc.com) attempts to do just that. The Ultra features a deeply forked launcher and a horizontal bar that sits above the arrow, ensuring that your shaft will stay put under all but extreme conditions. When you release, the launcher drops down, eliminating fletching contact. Though it's not as foolproof as a capture rest, the concept is sound and provides an innovative compromise. At these prices, however, it could start another debate: How much is too much to spend on an arrow rest?
