3d set up
my wife wants to set up a 3d bow. what style of rest is good or is a wb fine? Is a three pin sight with peep good? what is a good stabilizer? anything else she might need or want. The bow she likes is a mathews ignition. thanks for your input.

It would depend on the class she would be competing in. If it's bowhunter class, most places limit you to four pins, a 12" or less stabilizer, screw in points and four inch fletching. Open or freestyle you can use scopes w/ magnification, long stabilizers, offset bars, etc.
If she's going to mainly hunt with a few 3D's thrown in, the WB would be a good choice, but if she's going target only, I'd probably look at a two prong or a spring steel rest.
For a stabilizer, I'd look at Postens.

I am assuming that she has never shot 3D before??? So she is not sure what she wants or will like. Basically it really comes down to what she will like or not like. Most of it will be trial and error before she knows what she likes or dislikes.
A Mathews Ignition is a good bow so I wouldn’t go too cheap on the accessories:
To start someone out, these would be my recommendations (But I'm no expert):
Rest: Whisker Biscuit is fine (depending on fletching of the arrow). A drop away gives you more options on your fletching type for your arrows.
Sight: Any 3 - 4 pin sight with a peep, should be fine
Stab: Any stabilizer, which helps balance out the bow and helps with shock/vibration (Sims SCoil should be good for that, she may not want something too heavy for her, on some small frame bows, some people don’t like a stabilizer on it)
Good Luck! Let us know what you get for her…
