Default Decided on my first bow

Well, after taking the advice of several members here I did the right thing and decided to go shoot several bows before I ordered one of the internet. I shot several including several Fred Bear, Mathews, PSE, Browning, and Mission bows. After shooting them all I decided to spend the extra money to buy a Mathews DXT. These are the accessories I am having installed.

Sight - Trophy Ridge Hot Spot 3 pin
Rest - Whisker Bisuit(may switch to a drop away later, but the guy at the archery shop was very helpful and he said I should start with this because it was pretty simple and then if I wanted I could switch out later)
Peep - Tru Peep
Stabilzer - Trophy Rdige Shock Stop
Quiver - Treelimb 5 Arrow
Arrows - Gold Tip Pro Hunter(6)
Release - Scott Caliper Release

I got out the door for $1012 including tax for everything. The bow will be set at 62# and 30" draw length. Let me know what you think and again thanks for the help and steering me in the right direction.

BJ

I did buy from a local shop. Originally I wasn't going to but I found another shop in the area and the guy was great and I think I got an ok deal on the bow.
