I currently have an Impact Archery colllector 3 pin. I do like it. But want to step up to a 5 pin on my new rig. But after dumping all that money on a new bow, I don't want to dump 100+ bucks on a sight and rest. And I don't want to strip my old bow down in case I need a spare. So I am thinking of a NAP Apache drop away rest which I can get for around $50 from various places. Now can't decide which sight to look at. any suggestions. I don't want cheap just not so pricey.

You can a lot of differnt sights in the classified, both here and on ArcheryTalk, for less than $50. Take a look. Probably find that rest as well for less than $50.

Find one that is aluminum rather than composite, even if you have to spend a little more. Look on ebay, might find something there.

Anything by Viper or Extreme. Look on AT classifieds and use "search forum". A lot easier than sifting through all the other stuff. They are both quality sights and both accept a light. Not sure about Extreme sights,but Viper uses all stainless steel mounting hardware and pins. There are several options and it's personal preference,but those are the two I'd look at. I use a Viper H1000. The cats have knocked my bow off the deck rail(6ft drop) onto landscape stone several times and have had no broken pins and it wasn't knocked outta whack. It seems to take abuse well. Keep your eyes peel. They can be had for less than $50 but they seem to go quick. Matter of fact,I just saw a package deal with a sight and Whisker biscuit rest for $35 shipped. I'll see if I can find the link.

Scratch that. Package deal was a single pin sight. This is the exact sight I use but mine is black.http://www.archerytalk.com/vb/showthread.php?t=1717953&highlight=viper
