My buddy purchased one for his 13 year old last year. My two cents, they're junk! Loud and not that forgiving which kinda hurts the accuracy. As for arrow types, I use Gold Tip and for broadheads I use four bladed Muzzy 100 grain. Now, If you ask 50 other people, you'll get 50 other opinions. The only way to figure out what works best, that only comes from trying MANY different set up's and that only comes with time. There is no magic pill to your question. One arrow and broadhead may work well with a certain rest or bow, but not another type or set up.
Good luck with it!
Hey, did you grab the blind bag with the shells when we left the truck?
Safetys, use them: If you can see red, you can get dead!
