With early archery season drawing near, what bow / release / sights / arrow rest does everyone prefer?

I just got my cabelas archery catalog in the mail and cant believe all the stuff they have to put on your bow.

imb21,

Yes, and no my knuckles do not drag on the ground (lol)


The long draw is both good and bad, good in that I get a ton of KE and speed from bows, bad in that it is very tough to get arrows of the correct spine and lenght.

I have an overdraw on my Oneida, but I really don't like them. It takes away the forgiveness of a large brace height, and with my draw length, every mm of brace height is important.

Black Hawk (before GT bought them out) made arrows that were perfect, 32.5", good spine, and with the Speed 23 series nice and light for 3d.

Not sure what GT will do with them, but looks like there are going to keep everything the same for now.
