Hello everyone . I just got my new 2010 firecat tr2 on sunday and was online trying to figure out what gear to get for hunting and 3D.Im a littel overwelmed buy all the sights , arrow rest and ect ect . I just wont to get my bow set up with good dependable gear . Alot has changed in the last 15 years since i used to shoot archery.I did talk to some archery shops around , but they didnt have much of a selection to choose from,any ideas, thanks :)

Welcome to the forum and congrats for the new bow! I'm afraid i can't help much - you must decide yourself what gear you like. May be if you tell us what you've chosen till now we can give some advice.

Welcome to the forum. I am also looking for information on rest, sights, etc. I have been using www.archeryreport.com since it has video and reviews of different pieces. I also found www.outdoorsexperience.com which sells products, but they have such a large selection and the items are grouped by manufacturer. These are just 2 sites that I have found to be helpful, good luck and post some pics as you go.

I narrowed my sight down to the sword apex hunter which has 4 pins and the trophy ridge firewire v3, but need to see both side by side to see how I like them. I am pretty sure I have also settled on the Apache for a rest.

When the son in law 1st got into archery I told him to just buy what he can when he can.. its the best advice i can give anyone. if you have the resorces then you can get what ever catches your eye, its all good..If not then look for a used one On AT.

The Vaportrail Limb Driver rest is one of my favorites, installation is straight forward and easy and won't have any effect on cam timing. They are also very dependable and well made.

Sword sights are pretty much the same way. Rugged, well made with bright, well protected fibers.

I use a pro hunter single pin sight. And a bodoodle zapper 300 for the rest. I also have a pro lite bodoodle rest extremely accurate.
