Default Cool (or sucky) old gear thats no longer made

I was recently talking "old gear" with a friend- reminiscing really, and thought of some cool/horrendous gear I really swore by/at BITD.

Some things I really loved
The Okie Shootin Cushin'
Easton Autumn Orange XX75s (man I sure wish they'd do ACCs in this)
Pro-Line (bow company, pre-Darton) micro adjust sights
PSE uni-system sights/quivers
Saunders Torque Tamers
Tru-Leaf camo
Grey background ASAT
Mossy Oak Fall Foliage


Some things I really hated
Golden Eagle "System" accessories
Saunders T-dot pins
Brass/Steel pins with glow in the dark paint
Cheap old lead/zinc/whatever cobra stabilizers ( 4" long, and about 6 pounds!)
Braided Fast Flight bowstrings
Most anything made by Sattelite
Original Loggy Bayou treestand (and Bakers for that matter!)
Punchcutters/Pucketts Bloodtrailers (if you want to hear me rant & rave,mentioning these is a surefire way to make your wish come true)
Trebark Universal

Some things that worked pretty well but died for good reasons
Montana Black Gold "broadhead guide rings"- worked really good, but made your arrow sound like a F4U Corsair in flight. Also broke on impact when practicing
Anderson Big Bucks Magnum broadheads

Those are just some off the top of my head, I'll be adding more ...please feel free to make your own lists/add to mine!

We use to shot w/ poison pods that slid on the arrow behind the broadhead... Forgot what type of poison we would use..Was not illegal then and dangerous and it could be..
