    For a sight Black Gold is hard to beat IMO. A Ripcord and Trophy taker are good rests. I don't like anything that is recoil driven. I would rather have a rest that is attached to the downward buss and something that I can time with a draw board.

    Another vote for the QAD. I am shooting a toxonics sight and haven't seen anything as bright thus far. No need for a light.

    I ordered the black gold 4 pin sight and a NAP apache micro. Waiting on them to come in then go and get them installed and the bow tuned. Hopefully it will happen next week and I can get out there and shoot some.

    The revolution I put on my bow works flawlessly. Not good for TR if they have inconsistencies from rest to rest. I have the rest on a PSE Vendetta XL and it was easy to set up and is shooting great. The same rest however would not tune on a Mathews Switchback.

    We've put on some Revolutions that worked fine, and sometimes, they just won't work. Not not tune, but wouldn't work.

    You can't go wrong with Rip
    cord, QAD or Trophy Taker.
    I have had all of them and love the Trophy Taker. Just my opinion.


    As
    Far as a sight goes, I have had all of the above listed.
    I'm in love with the 7 pin Spot Hogg.

    I have tinkered with the adjustable sights as well as the magnificated sights.
    Keep it simple and kill big bucks.

    Good luck man. Find what works for you and stick with it.

    can't go wrong with a QAD rest and a axcel armourtech sight.:tu the way I see it is buy the best right away and then you don't have to spend the money and upgrade later. Get on archery talk and you'll find some good deals.
