If I go with a Reezen, everything will be new. Things I'm pretty set on already is a Schaffer rest (really like it), Mathews T5 Quiver and a G5 Meta peep. Not sure on a sight or stabilizer yet. I really like the Stealth stabilizer on my Switchback, but it isn't available in Lost Camo. I may order one in black and have it dipped in Lost though. Not sure on the arrows either.
If I stick with my Switchback, the only change will be the arrows. I went with GT Pro 55/75's last year, but they are significantly lighter than what I want. This bow will have new arrows regardless. If I get a Reezen, it will be using whatever arrows my Reezen is using.

I walked over to the archery section after I got the rifle problem taken care of and shot the demo of the new Reezen bow. Now I have read all sorts of reviews on it and was second guessing it after reading those comments. It was setup pretty much as a bare bow, just a bodoodle two prong style rest and d-loop. 28" draw at 66# and that was a setup perfect for me. I was very impressed on how smooth it drew back. I shot it several times and didn't knock off the arrow off the rest ever. It definitely feel different than the DXT and feels faster. I shot into a bag target backup with layered foam targets and shot through the bag and deep into the foam. It has some punching ability! I brought my own release with me thinking I'd take a few minutes and try it out and I was liking it a whole bunch at the end of shooting it.
But I'm holding out till I shoot the Mathews Monster bows before even thinking of any changes this year. My setup right now is working just fine with maybe one change in my arrow rests. I'd like to see how the new Mathews arrow rest turns out before I try it out.
