    Welcome to the forum and congrats for the new bow! I'm afraid i can't help much - you must decide yourself what gear you like. May be if you tell us what you've chosen till now we can give some advice.

    Welcome to the forum. I am also looking for information on rest, sights, etc. I have been using www.archeryreport.com since it has video and reviews of different pieces. I also found www.outdoorsexperience.com which sells products, but they have such a large selection and the items are grouped by manufacturer. These are just 2 sites that I have found to be helpful, good luck and post some pics as you go.

    I narrowed my sight down to the sword apex hunter which has 4 pins and the trophy ridge firewire v3, but need to see both side by side to see how I like them. I am pretty sure I have also settled on the Apache for a rest.

    When the son in law 1st got into archery I told him to just buy what he can when he can.. its the best advice i can give anyone. if you have the resorces then you can get what ever catches your eye, its all good..If not then look for a used one On AT.
    It's all fun an games till you put that big boy on the ground.. now its time to get to work
