I just put a DMI Expert II on my Bowtech Tribute and I love it. Just got another one in and plan on putting it on my back-up bow as well. Great rest. Easy adjustments and quiet. They are a little hard to get right now as everyone is having to back order.

I just bumped up a thread in this forum which you may want to read... It's got just a bit of why I chose that particular rest over some others, and then the attributes which I found to be extremely good with it.

Since you have a Mathews and it has a roller guard, I'd go with the Muzzey Zero Effect. If you want something different that fully contains the arrow, I'd go with the QAD Ultra as MDBuckHunter said.

Whatever you do, I'd stay away from the Ripcord. Mine did just that- it "ripped the cord". []

I'm liking the Vital Gear Kazaway that is on my Drenalin. It captures the arrow well and has good fletching clearance

All are good suggestions, I shoot a QAD ultra rest myself. The only thing with the mathews is how small the shelf is. The pronghorn by trophy taker should work, doubt the original trophy taker would though.
