    Looking at setting up my Hoyt with Trophy Taker Smackdown Pro. Anybody used them? Pros? Cons?

    I had one on my bow a couple seasons ago. It was a reliable rest, very simple design. No real cons to speak of.

    IMO it is a great rest easy setup very solid and quiet too awesome arrow clearance and makes everything that much more accurate I dont have any cons for the smackdown pro. It prwtty much just depends on what ur lookin for out of a rest cuz they are pretty sweet.

    Will do thanks maxpetros. i like to try new things and i have been curious about the limb driven setup so i may give it a shot. I have QADs on both my bows so i will probably do some experimenting with this and see what i think. Thanks to those of you who have answered. keep em coming!

    I used a Smackdown Pro all of last year and I liked it.

    I have it on my Hoyt Spyder Turbo. Very easy to set up, very quiet, and works very well. I replaced my QAD hxd with this rest and never had any thoughts of going back. Not that the QAD is a bad rest, this thing is just sweet. I've always thought they looked really nice on Hoyts.

    I put the smackdown pro on my Hoyt Vector this year and it is simple to use, quiet, and drops away quickly. NO cons

    I have one on my Deadeye. Great rest with a simple design, and not a lot of areas where the rest could fail.
