Muzzy's are highly regarded, and have taken countless deer as I read on the Archery boards. My personal favorite broadheads are Montec G5's and the Shuttle T lock. You really can't go wrong with any of the quality fixed blade broadheads available today.Whisker biscuit's are popular with the tree stand crowd - you can nock up an arrow and hang the bow on the tree next to you and never worry about the arrow falling off the rest when the bow is retrieved when a deer approaches. I see them alot here in Ohio where I've been working this past year, but I rarely see them on the west coast where our style of hunting is mostly spot and stalk and ground blind ambush. In fact, of all the dozens of weekend tournaments I've shot this year I've never seen anyone using them in the So. Cal area. I know you don't want to "bother" with them, but drop away's are probably the most popular rests out there, and really once they are setup and timed properly don't need any more attention. I haven't touched mine in over three years.Arrows - all the major brands build a good arrow and there are only minor differences in construction between them. I shot Goldtip Hunters for years and had no problems whatsoever with shaft straightness and durability. This year I've been shooting Easton Axis FMJ's and love them also, but would not hesitate to build up another dozen of the Goldtips or any of the Victory line. I guess with arrows the only thing I would recommend is to stay away from anything sold at Walmart or the big box sporting goods stores. They almost always have cheap materials and construction, and one nightmare you do not want is a carbon arrow blowing up and shredding your hand on release. I've seen way too many pictures of the aftermath.
