If you were setting up a new bow and you could pick any sight and rest on the market, what would you choose?

I have the QAD HDX and the Trophy Taker Smackdown Pro. I really like the Trophy Taker. Not by much over the QAD, but I really like it a lot. Either way you can't go wrong. I haven't heard anything bad about ripcord either.

QAD and Montana black gold single pin on both my set ups...HHA and spott hogg make awesome single pins as well I just prefer the sight tape in front of me instead of on the knob! I will say I'll never shoot another multi pin again after switching 3 years ago!

QAD HDX and a Spot Hogg Hunter. You simply won't find better built, engineered or serviced products in the business.

I think I have decided on the QAD HDX for the rest. Still not sure which sight, but am leaning towards the Spot Hogg Hunter 5 pin. Thanks everyone.

I'm in this same boat right now. But I already have a Spott Hogg Hogg Father coming in the mail tomorrow I bought used from ArcheryTalk. As for a rest, I'm leaning towards Trophy Tacker Smackdown Pro
