Hello! I have decided to commit to the hobby of target archery, as it interests me greatly. I have just recently ordered my first bow, the Phenom. The shop I ordered it from told me it will take up to two weeks to come in, and I figured that would give me time to scope out my load out so I'll be making educated decisions instead of eating my money!

Any suggestions/recommendations on accessories I should pair with, and if yes which ones and why?
I appreciate any/all help

Archery is a completely personal hobby.

I try to suggest used accessories for a first timer. That way you can figure out what it is you like before spending 300 on a sight that you absolutely hate.

Strictly target for now. And I didn't even think of buying used, thanks. Just trying to see what variants of excessories are geared more towards target shooting if there is such a distinction

There is a distinction in all accessories. Stabs, sights, rests releases. Do some looking around, I'm mostly into hunting so my bows r rigged out with hunting gear.

I agree upgrade as you go, I shoot target (no hunting in the UK). EBay helped me alot lol( but if unsure ask on here before bidding) or some great kit sold on here
You can get target specific kit, but it doesn't matter, for instance target shooters use different long rods, for balance I use a hunting stab, the bow I'm getting now although using as target will be set up as a hunting bow, and I still hold my own at 60/70 yds..

P's this is a great place for advice with some really intelligent archers... And me lol

I do a ton of target archery and no matter what type you get involved with keep it as simple as you can used sights and scope are fine as far as target stabilizers and rest you can find a used pro tuner rest you can get for 50.00 or less as far as target stabilizers try and stay with carbon bars if you shop around you can find them at a resonable price. good luck and remember try to keep it simple.

Hi all. Update on the setup: QAD hunter rest, HHA single pin sight, Scott ninja release. I just found an OLD 7" saunders torque tamer stabilizer my father'n'law gave me im gonna try out. Its pretty heavy, around 1.5lb, so I guess ill see how it helps with me shooting target. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas for a better stabilizer fit for me i will appreciate them!
For arrows I went with gold tip expedition hunter 5575/400 with some field tips (obviously ha).

I appreciate the tips, yall helped me focus on what worked for me starting out. Its been pretty nasty weather here for my outdoor ranges (windy!), so im gonna try to find some indoors to practice my fundamentals
