...need some accessory advice for a '12 Martin Scepter V
I just purchased a 2012 Martin Scepter V...like an hour ago. Now, for the fun, but costly part. I'm looking at making this a target bow and am looking at rest and sights. I recently switched from a QAD HDX to a TT Smackdown on my Carbon Matrix, so I'm leaning towards a TT for this bow. I've read all the threads with QAD versus Limbdriver versus Code Red versus Revolution versus TT...so I'm pretty set on Trophy Taker, just deciding between a Smackdown with no containment, just the whaletail launcher or a TT Spring Steel Pro. As far as sights, I've looked at HHA, Sure-Loc, Spott Hogg, etc...the liust goes on. Here again, I have a TruGlo MicroBrite on my Carbon Matrix and have no complaints, just looking for a target sight. As far as stabilizers, I'm gonna have to do a little more research on V-Bars, front weight and side weight. Once I get the bow in hand, I'll post some pics...also, I'm sure I'll need to talk to Hutch about some new threads...any input and advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Sure Loc sight frames are hard to beat. Check classified in other forums and maybe pick up one less than half cost of new. Almost $300 new with 3rd axis. Add a quality scope and heading for $500 pretty easy.
The Super Peep is hard to beat with having different size orifices and clarifiers available. Pricey, but well worth. Never got along with the hooded version.
Next for peep would be Fletchers. You can buy a handful and not get broke. Proven through years of use fear of cutting a bow string in non-existent. Those Red Eyes, G5s and whatever give me the willies.
Limb Savers. Probably the best to use if needed. I've shot 3 Shadowcats and never worried about vibration/noise whatsoever. I suspect the Scepter V would be as good or better.
Hammerhead strings. I see the green/black clashes a bit with the nice looking red riser. Good, bad or indifferent, factory strings are getting harder and harder to beat. Of recent years I don't change out factory strings unless I get a super deal or get them even better, for free. That's how much factory strings have improved from years back. The HammerHead strings I have now have probably more than 15,000 shots on them and still looking good. No stretch that I have noticed.
