As far as stabalizer go Check out Doniker and Fuse both are really good youcan not go bad with theany one of them andprice is more than fair.

Your sights and other products go pick them up and feel them see what you like don't let any one tell you what to get....get what fits you style. about breaking the bank for sights anything good is going to run you $80 - 180 so like I said pick out what works for you and Good luck

My advice, whatever that is worth, is to not get caught up in all the archery hype. There are very good bows out there that don't break the bank. Reflex, diamond, Bear, Ross. Shoot as many different ones as you can.
Stabilizer, hard to go wrong with an S-coil and one small module. Sights, look at Copper John, Cobra, Spott Hogg.

Don't go for cheap sights. I got cheap sites for my first pair and when I finally had the money to upgrade...I did. I instantly noticed that I was shooting better with good sights. Doinker is a very good stabailzer.

Well, I will give my opinion on sights. I bought the sword apex micro site for $90.00. I could not be happier with it. My proshop had to order it and it arrived w/in a couple of days.

Check it out. http://www.swordacusite.com


You can hold off on a quiver until season gets a little closer.

ok, well i am more than satisfied with my tru-glo brite site and 4in stabilizer and get a hip quiver is what the guya t the pro shop said because the extra weight could cause you to tilt the bow a lil bit but i dont know if it matters and you can never go wrong with the wb imho so thants my 2 cents

Had a buddy suggest this sight which won't break the bank at $79.99...



Both of us also have $160 Spot Hogg's and like this one just fine, if that tells you anything.

I've been a BIG fan of Kwikee Quivers for many, many years now. I think their slogan is something like "You can spend more, but you can't get any better." For what I use a quiver for, that's exactly right. I LOVE the additional Caddy Brackets you can buy and screw into the tree at waist height which allows you to take the quiver off your bow and place it right beside you. I've got almost 10 of those little brackets, and I put them in the tree when I initially hang my stand; that way,I don't have to remember to bring them with me on every trip.
