Default help set up my contender elite

Finally ordered a contender elite today
@ 60# with a 30 inch draw and spirals on xt 3000 limbs
oh yeah...red fusion...now my deliemma...what rest and stabilizer. Will only be used for 3d.
Already have a axcel armortech pro series sight for it, was thinking about a g5 expert 2 drop away in black, and a xtreme stab.
Also what do you guys think of these bows...

I would shoot the drop away. Even though they are great rests there just not a simple as I would like. I love the trophy taker spring steel rests. Make sure you get the 3 different blades with it so you can see which one shoots the best for you.
Not sure what length of bare you are wanting but the Easton x10 bars are great so are there side bars.
Cartel v-bar bracket is one of the best out there IMO. You can adjust it anyway you want to.
Good luck and you picked up a great bow.

I totally agree with Jame on the Trophy Taker rest. It is as simple and TOUGH as they get. There is a reason so many top shooters use this type of rest.

I currently shoot the same bow as you shotdown1227, but at 28 3/4" draw. I am using Doinkers on my set up. I am using the 12" bar off the side for my personal feel along with a 28.5" front bar.

This bow is sweet. Cant wait to get outside some and shoot some 3D and distance.

Default Sweet bow

Shot my buddies Contender (KHoyt here) and man its nice.

Trophy Taker Spring steel or fall away works great on Hoyts.

CBE all the way on sights.

Love my B stingers on my Pro elite.

Good Luck with the new bow.
