Perhaps this is reading too much into it, but for me it's arrows - as I would hope for most it is. I believe you are talking about an upgrade though and not the act of getting arrows to go with your bow.
Still, In my mind, the bow and the arrows are the place where the technology or simple thought should be put with regards to performance. I learned to shoot on bows without sights, and whil I am no deadeye, I can get decent consistency at a target that way.

All about the rest, and the general set up of the peep and knocking point to give you the center shot. If you have a lagging or noisy rest the arrow or sight don't even come into play.

From your choices, it would be the rest.

The "best" archery accessory I have ever purchased? A laser rangefinder, hands down. The best archery(and rifle) "extra" I have ever spent money on! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

heres my problem with the rangefinder, i like it but i feel like ive become addicted to it.
example: last january a doe come in real fast. she was in the open so i didnt have a reference point. i guessed her at 35 yards, but i had become dependent on my rf. (even though i've hunted years without one :mad: ) so i tried to raise up my rf and range her. sure enough, it read 34 yards, but she saw me lower the range finder. once i was pegged i had no chance. had to watch her trot off.

so range any trees around you then put it in your bag. because when you see that deer, its hard not to pick up that range finder. and they'll peg you.

i love mine for rifle hunting and archery practice though.

I picked arrows before I read down and saw they dont count. I would say rest then sight.
