New Hoyt Alphamax... What Rest To Go On It?

Since this is my first really nice bow and since I'm only $0.00 into right now, I'm planning on only putting the best on it. I want a full containment of some sort. Do you guys have any suggestions?

I have the Rip Cord Code red

I have the Rip Cord Code red on my Hoyt and it has worked perfectly I would highly suggest it to anyone looking for a great rest.  The only other one I would go with right now would be the high end QAD rest...I think it sells for 130 to 140.  Have fun with the new bow....you will love it.

Thanks for the advice guys...

Thanks for the advice guys... I have it narrowed to the code red rip cord and a couple of the trophy taker models. Does anyone have any experience with any of the trophy taker models? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I can not wait until I can get this thing to the range for the first time!

What about the quiver?

I am also using a rip cord.

What kind of quiver do you plan on mounting on that new beast?

I have experience with a couple of different models.  My first was a Mathews that came with the Switchback I use to have.  The only issue I had with that was the fact that it wasn't removable.  I like to take my quiver off when I am in a ground blind.  The next one I tried was the Octance removable with the magnetic hood.  I bought that specifically to go with the Rage mechanicals that I was using.  It worked well but was pretty heavy. 

I am now using the Tight Spot and so far REALLY like it!  You can get it as close to your bow as you want, set the holding pressure on the arrows, and adjust the quiver to balance with your bow.
