    Default I'll offer up a what I know

    Well, you are going to need an arrow rest, a whisker biscuit seems very common around my neck of the woods as far as that goes.

    You will need a peep sight to line up with your sight, essentially to aim better.

    If you plan on shooting with a trigger (which I suggest you do to save your fingers getting shredded constantly pulling back a 60lb line) you will need a "D-loop" installed on your bow.

    That would be the basics. If you go to the nearest pro-shop, they would be better equipped to explain to you how to line up your sights, and as an added bonus most shops would install the stuff you buy from them free of charge, and they will set you up to the correct draw weight and length.

    As far as arrows go, you will need to check out some manufacturers websites and consult the charts there depending on the length of the arrow you want and your draw weight.

    Hope that helps,

    Good Pin sight is a Sure Lock QC2 I believe. Good single pin adjustable sight is HHA. Rests.. I use PSE Prowler, but I would just look at any drop away rest, any that you like. Just get a cheaper release (Tru Ball) till you really want a good one then go with a Carter release. Arrow size depends on the #lb you pull.(Id get carbon arrows if I where you, aluminum arrows bend a lot easier) If I'm not mistaken its around 5 grain per lb of pull. Stabilizer id go with something smaller then 12" (Doinker) because of the different class's that you would have to shoot with something longer. So with all that in mind its all really in personal pref but I hope to have steared you in the right direction, I have only been shooting for about 6 months now but I spent good money on my stuff. Just remember the cheaper you are the most likely your going to replace.

    Hope this helped
