        Wax the string often enough to keep it from getting dry and fuzzy looking. It can depend on the weather and how much you shoot. Arrows and proper spine depend on length of draw and draw weight, point weight, fletching.
        Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not
        me, I want people to know "why" I look this way. I've
        traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

            the only true must add on to your bow is a rest... all the other stuff is optional.

            a sight, rest, stabilizer, peep(i know dave's gonna disagree with this one), i recommend using a d-loop, a good release. quality arrows.. that's about it.

                getting started

                First and foremost make sure your draw lenght is correct, next for beginners is to have a kisser button , peep sight this will allow you to learn to anchor consistently by doing so helping you to become a better shooter. Check your draw weight then choose an arrow with correct spine stiffness. Please feel free to ask any more ? you may have , i hope this helps you in your archery journey

                      What he said is extremely important BUT.......make sure you know the person/shop who is helping you knows what they are doing and not going thru the motions. Dont be bashful to ask questions.......if the DL he determines you to be does not feel right, discuss it as each person is different when it comes to archery, what might work for one might not work for another.
