Hello again, Jeremy
1.what kind of arrow do I need grain,spine,weight, tip weight,inch veins?
This is where you really need to do your Homework or go to a Pro Shop for help...You want your arrow to be a correct Total weight for your Bow so it will Not be too light or heavy...Too light and you risk of damaging your bow because it will be similar to Dry Firing it with No arrow at all and that can get ugly in a hurry!! To heavy and you rob your set-up of several things like speed and a flat trajectory on the release...I myself am Not into speed Bows because Speed aint worth a flip if you can't hit with it...Well I take that back...It will cause you to miss quicker lol...I Think Easton has a chart you can Google with your Weight, Draw Length Etc that will get you started.
2.Your thoughts on whisker biscuit?
When I first seen 1 of these I thought it was a vacuum cleaner accessory? lol But They are a great Hunting style Rest and really a No frills simply way to shoot a bow and it's always where you know it needs to be with No Springs, Cords ETC that can fail...I actually hunted with a Biscuit this season and if you decide to go with 1 I would recommend spraying the bristles with water repellent. You do loose a little speed and they are hard on certain fletchings but in my opinion, They are a great Hunting rest!!!
3.Thoughts on index finger or thumb release?
This is gonna be a personal preference also...I have shot Both and have always went back to a Wrist Style Buckle release aid...Just my thing, Not saying it will be yours...Again, before you spend a small fortune on these things, Go to a bow shop and ask to shoot several styles and you will know when you find yours!!
4.what brand of arrow are the best for the cheapest budget?
Again, With the Crazy Archery world..It can get expensive!! But for hunting, I don't think you can go wrong with Gold Tip arrows!!! There are a great tough arrow for the price and will do what you want and that's let the Air out of a animal...If you get caught up in what the PROS use..You better have a fat wallet...The Gold Tip expeditions are a great value for a hunting arrow!! Victory Makes a Good budget arrow as well.rnrnGood Luck to ya...Your gonna have a great time Archery Hunting!!!!!!
