I once experienced fuzzy urxvt fonts, but it turned out that my
hinting settings were screwy.  You might want to check that out
(/etc/fonts and .fonts.conf on Arch Linux).

I use

    URxvt.font: xft:Bitstream Vera Sans Mono-8.5

If you're looking for something without AA, I like

    URxvt.font: -*-proggyclean-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
