Starting with a Matthews Triax, list everything you'd add to it to make your ultimate complete package. You can include the release, case, or any other accessories too. I'm curious to see how everyone would set it up.

Make sure you put duplex pins on it for 200 yard shots

I got out of the bow game and went crossbow. It can get dumb with add one real quick.

- the Scott goose releases seemed have better triggers if that makes since

- mid grade Easton arrows worked more than good enough

I liked less pins like 3 more than 5 (clutter)

- had a quad rest and it was good

- slik trick magnums kill

Good luck Iím sure some of my info is outdated

That's pretty much how my current bow (PSE Bow Madness) is rigged and it's worked very fine. Only difference is the broadheads. I've been using Swhacker. That new Triax is awesome though. Got me hankering for a new rig.

SKB case

I like thumb releases and my favorite is trufire Edge 4 finger

QAD HDX or Limbsaver drop away rest

SpotHogg sight, the one with 2 fixed pins and one floating for longer distances like a single pin sight.

If I had to buy another stabilizer Bee Stinger, but will keep my Mercury stabilizer

Meta Peep titanium peep sight sized so the housing fits my eye in conjunction with the front sight.

Arrows I switched to gold tip pierce and really like them for hunting. But have shot lots of different arrows over the years.

Mostly have someone set it up for you and tuned right.

If buying a new bow now it would be an Obsession or Prime, but that is just me.

I have an older Mathews that I have added and tricked out over the years. I added a nice fall away rest that is great. I have a 3 pin fiber optic sight set for 30, 40, and 50 yards, with a mark for 60 yards.

I just would highly not recommend a whisker biscuit rest, since they are loud and tear up fletchings.

QAD fall away rest for sure. As far as sights, go with what you like, keep it uncluttered. Get a fiber site with enough pins for 20-30-40-50 and thats all. Or if you like an adjustable single pin site go with Spot Hogg sight. Keep it as simple as possible. I like a good wrist release like a Tru-Fire but others prefer a thumb release. Slick trick broad heads and arrows that for your draw, bow speed and poundage.

Rest: I switched to a limb driver and really liked it (and the fact that for back country hunts If there is an issue I can probably rig a fix for it.

Sight: IQ Pro Hunter-- Its a 3 pin with the 3rd pin floating (while the top 2 remain static)-- the housing doesn't move like on many sights meaning your closer range pins are still good for their set distance.

Release: Lots of personal preference but I like the Tru-fire Hardcore Max-- whatever you get... GET TWO-- because when you are in the field, TWO IS ONE... AND ONE IS NONE!

Stab: Bee-stinger 10"

Quiver: Tight Spot 5 Arrow (I shoot quiver on--mostly from the ground)

Arrow: Maxima Red Small Diameter

Broadhead: Preference--- for deer I shoot mechanicals (rage or shwacker)
