Re: newbie... want setup help.
Here is what I always recommend...quality sights, quality rests, quality releases are three integral parts of the bow that directly impact your shot, and are transferable from bow to bow.
I've shot WB, Code Red, QAD, and now a limb driver. For a "newbie", I'd recommend either the Code Red, the QAD, or a limb driver. I do so because all 4 come in some form of capture rest capacity, but the WB can have more affect on your shot point of impact when the bow is torqued during the shot, and beginning archers will make form errors more readily than experienced archers.
As far as sites, you may want to go to a .019 pin rather than a .010 pin. The smaller the pin, the more movement you will see in your site picture. Later on, as you gain more experience and your shot distance increases, you may want a .010 because the smaller pin will not block out as much of the vital areas of a deer at 40 yds. The HHA 5510 has a .010 pin, but you can get an 5519 head to put on it if you want to go with the bigger pin.
