I am in the process of buying a 2008 Martin Moab that has only the string/cable (bare bow). 1. What quiver is a good one for hunting? 2. Which sights are recommended? 3. What release or type release? 4. What arrow rest? Martin suggested the Whisker Biscuit. 5. Anything I missed?

Thanks

Nice bow. What kind of money are you willing to spend?

The last rest that I would put on a bow is the whisker biscuit, they are hard on flechings and slow down your arrows, try the Ripcord or the limbdriver, as for release I like handheld, but some like wrist strap, it's up to you what feels right to you, Quivers on a Martin bow I like a Martin Quiver, they mount so nice, good luck and enjoy!

Timtim146- I would rather spend the minimum. My wife is already watching me from the corner of her eye. Not more than $150.

RogerSr-thank you for your response.

Lol alright most of this stuff if preference but i can tell you what i like that is good equipment and that is cheaper.
Quiver: Alpine Archery Bear Claw 5-Arrow Quiver- $27.99
Sight: Truglo Brite-Site Xtreme Five-Pin Sight with Light- $34.99
Release: Scott Archery Caliper Wrist Strap Release- $49.99
Rest: This is a touchy one but i would say the limb driver, Spot hogg whammy rest, or QAD. All are great. I prefer the limb driver the most myself.
Limb driver:$89.99
Spot hogg whammy rest:$92.99
QAD:$49.99-$139.99
Also a cheap rest that works pretty good and is cheap is the Trophy Taker Xtreme SL Arrow Rest. It is $49.99.
Hoped this helps. Im sure you can go cheaper on a release but i figured that one would last you years and years for a decent price. I own that quiver and it is my favorite. I also own the sight and it is great for the price. And i recommend looking up the rests and picking one out on your own. But i hope i helped :]

The WB is the best HUNTING rest in the market. If they are hard on your vanes then you have sorry vanes. They MIGHT be 2-3 fps slower.:rolleyes: There are no moving parts to ever fail. Good luck with the failaway. JMO

It may me the simplest rest but it is by far not the "best".

I would tend to agree, the whisker biscuit is a great rest. I tested my arrows through the biscuit using a bare shafts and fletched arrows. The bare shafts shot 1 fps faster than the fletched arrows. When you're in the middle of nowhere, the simpler the rest the better, less to go wrong and the wb fits this. Great rest.
