If you go anywhere away from one of the Mathews QADs, chances are you will experience some sort of noise. Especially if it doesn’t have a dampening system. Highly recommend going with the Mathews Ultrarest. It’s built specifically for the Mathews risers. And as far as a sight, that’s just going to be up to you. I shoot Spot Hogg single pins. I like shooting long distance for fun and furthest shot I have at my land is 20 yards. But sights are all personal preference.

I would get the qad integrate and nothing wrong with spott hogg. I put a black gold widow maker on my bow and love it, pins are brighter than the spot hogg imo

I shoot a whisker biscuit and an HHA optimizer lite on my VXR-28 and I love the set up... it works great for me.

I have the same bow and enjoy it so far. Good shooter for sure.
I personally don’t think you should go with the integrate. I had it on my Vertix and it is no different from the QAD ultra rest I have on my VXR. I didn’t find anything different besides the price and it is about half for the regular Ultra rest. Does the same thing and operates flawlessly. Only thing is it don’t have ‘Mathews’ stuck on it. Sights, I have the HHA Kingpin. Imo best sight out there but for 5 pins, I’d go with the spot Hogg. Had one on my old bow and loved it. Just like the single pin adjustable sight now.

My set up-
29 @70#, ambush Green
Easton axis 300 w/100g heads. Total weight is 468-472grain.
HHA KingPin .010
QAD HD Ultra Rest
Axion Stabilizer
Trophy Ridge Hex Light 5arrow quiver
Accessories all black.

Hamskea without a doubt. There isn't a more bombproof rest on the market.

For a sight I really like spot hogg Hogg it 5 pin for fixed or MBG ascent verdict for a slider.

Acxel Armortech or Rheotech for the sight. Axcel's quality is truly top notch.

I would not go over .19. I would look at Viper sights too. For the rest, I won't shoot anything other than Hamskeas anymore.

This is precisely the reason I went with the Apex Covert Pro( ya, it's just a single pin). It has 11 different brightness settings. Seeing your pin out of a ground blind is no problem no matter how bright/ dark it is outside.

Just got the Rheotech 4 pin you can change the brightness a lot with it and can still add a light.
