Default Hook me up!!

Guys I am needing suggestions for my new Cardiac here in a few months. I have no price limit and I need everything. Rest, Sight, Quiver, Arrows, BH's. Lets see what you guys think!! I want a drop away and id like a longer length sight such as if it had a dovetail. Have fun!!

Meta peep for sure either the MZE or QAD for rest sight would be a montana black gold flash point and an s coil to finish it off plus some custom strings would customize it

Definitely would go with the MZE for starters.
I think the Cardiac comes with its own suppressor, but if not, I'd definitely geta CSS from MeanV2 as well.
I like Spot Hogg's sights as well.
Put you a Stealth stab in matching camo on it and you'll be all set!

Man, lots of awesome choice today! I've never seen a year where companies line-ups were so impressive!

For an arrow rest, I'm a huge fan of the Trophy Ridge Drop Zones. They have been flawlessy performing rests for me on every rig I have put together over the last few seasons. I just couldn't be happier! Another rest that comands respect and I've heard so much positive feedback on is the Ripcord. Either would be an awesome choice!

For sights, again I really like my TR sights and their new '07 line is better than ever. All metal machined construction and super bright fiber spooled pins. They even furnish a new precut Hush Kit to assure thye utmost in silence in a hunting sight. As mentioned, the Spot hogg line this year is impressive especially with the new Hog Wrap fiber wraps! The sight is awesome and hopefully it will address all the broken pin problems that most Spot Hogg users have suffered from. The only down side is that this new sight is ridiculously priced at $265!

For quivers, it really depends on your individual needs? Do you want a quiver to detach or one that will stay attached on stalks and long hikes. Personally I prefer to detach my quiver once I reach my ambush location so I don't have to worry about hiking up and down an mountains after Elk or something. My deer and turkey huting leaves little to worry over when ity comes to bow quivers.

Concerning arrows, infinite choices here but my favorite arrowssimply because I've found the consistencyof their weight and tolerences so good are Carbon Express shafts. The last few seasons have found me shooting the CX 3D Selects which have vastly exceeded the quality I've found in the Gold Tips and Eastons that I have shot.

Concerning b-heads. Again, infinite choices here and it will come down to personal preference. I happen to prefer the exceptional flight and awesome penetration I've got from my trusted Rocket Steelheads! I've tested these b-heads against many of the more popular fixed blade heads available and they still come outon top. Speaking of fixed blades, Iam very impressed with the new NAP Hellrazor b-head! This time tested design we know is impressive but I believe NAP's attention to detail and especially their attention to blade sharpness will make this head an incredible choice.

Good luck and good shootin'

IL, as always, thanks for your input... it's a shame you don't post as much these days as when I first joined this board so many years ago as MQ1shooter...

So Trophy Ridge has gone to all-metal construction in its sights these days, huh? That's good to know; I tried one of their Matrix Guide Series last year, but the plastic just didn't sit well with me.

And I hadn't yet seen a price on the new wrapped Spot Hogg... $265!?! Wow. I just replace my fibers with Fitz fibers.. Guess I'll still be doing that.
