    I used to think the same about expensive sites but decided to put an HHA Optimizer King Pin single pin on my new bow and really like it. After using it for a few months now I'm glad I bought it. It was more than I intended to spend but well worth it. I also have a Qad HDX rest, it's quiet and easy to setup.

    QAD or Smackdown. I use both and both are great rests.

    If I had to only have one............................... probably Smackdown.

    It depends on what kind of archery you're into. I'm a whitetail bowhunter first. I spent more money on my rest (QAD HDX Ultra, PSE specific) because I feel like you can get away without a high end sight in hunting. I chose a Trophy Ridge Hitman 5.

    Your hunting style dictates pin style to me. It's a personal preference. I hunt from a ground blind with a max distance of about 25 yards. I can get away with a single fixed pin if I wanted to. I never know when I might have to make a random shot outside of my typical hunting area.

    Deer come in quickly during the rut and you never know what distance they'll present. I fear not having time to adjust a slider.

    Which leads me to a hybrid sight. Simply the best of both worlds. I may look into a few of those for my next sight. It's hard to beat Trophy Ridge prices and their pin housing really catches light.
