I bought a bow from a guy and I need to upgrade the arrow rest. Wanted some suggetions from any bow hunters on here. Im not an all season bow hunter so I dont really want to sink a lot of money in an arrow rest but want a more updated one from what is on this bow. Any suggestions on new pin sights would be appreciated too. Thanks.

I shoot a whisker biscuit and an Extreme Archery products sight. They both do a great job.

I used to shoot a whisker biscuit and will never go back.. Never really had a bad experience with one I just like the drop away because there is no resistance on my arrow as it is released.

Tru Glow sight with small fiber optic pins. Aim Small mis small! Whisker biscuit wouldnt use one. Never been a fan they are slow. I would use a drop away or New Archery quick tune 360 or apache.

I highly suggest you getting on archerytalk.com and look at there classifieds. I have seen several QAD HD drop away rests on there for more than reasonable. I just got a Limbdriver pro v off there which cant go wrong with either of those. They have sights as well just preference and how much you want to spend when it comes to that.

I didn't know there was anything but a whisker biscuit. I'll sacrifice a few fps to never have to worry about my arrow moving or clanging around.

Definately Ripcord. You get the advantages of a drop away that you can lock up like a fixed prong rest. It also has a bar over the top to prevent the arrow from falling off even if you flip the bow upside down. I have been shooting rip cords for 10+ years and they are by far the best in my opinion.

The whisker bis. has it's pros as far as holding on to your arrow but all the newer fall aways solve that problem much more effeciently imo...I talked a buddy into switching from the bis. to a capture rest and he said the same thing about not losing any speed but once he swapped he saw where the difference was, his groups at 25yds. were 8" higher after he got away from the biscuit...They may not cost you much as far as fps but that small difference can cost you several yards in distance...If you don't care about that then go for the bis. rest but for me fall away rest are by far the best no matter which one you choose in my opinion...

I use a NAP Quicktune Micro 3000 rest and Vital Bow Gear 3 pin sights. Have had 0 problem with either. Just don't like the drop-away's for myself. I know people rave about them, but it is my personal preference.
