Default New Target Shooter

I'm looking at picking up archery 3D shoot, last time I played with a bow was 25 years ago. I'm looking for advice on accessories for a bow. I have been shown a few different bows and have picked the Bear Archery Striker for my first bow. I have long arms and need a 31in draw on my bow. What I really need help with is, what kind of sight, rest, and stabilizer, i need to target shooting. Can you give some brands and models to look over. The local shops just seem to have a small section and are only trying to sell what is in stock.

it really depends on what class you are wanting to shoot. but i would highly recomend any CBE sight. i prefer Gold TIP arrows. im not sure on the rest or stabilizer. for releases i would look at Carter. oh by the way

For the hunter class I use Spot Hogg sights .019 wrapped pins. I like the Hogg-It sight, but all of their sights are good. Just be sure to get wrapped pins (they help with brightness for such small pins).
B-Stinger stabilizer
I like lizard tongue rests (Trophy taker makes a good one), but drop aways will work well for you.
