Stabilizers?

8 posts in this topic

What comes most highly recommended? Got my new Matthews DXT last week, and didnt get a chance to try anything while i was there so no purchase was made, heading to archery country and cabelas tomorrow though, so im just lookin for input. Seems like theres alot of hype, and its hard to tell whats best for a semi-new bowhunter.

I just bought a Limbsaver S-coil and it does a nice job of reducing vibration, but is a little light for my taste. For $20 I can't complain too much though. Limbsaver also makes a nicer one for like $60, and Bowtech makes a nice one for $50. How much do you want to spend?

Ya i dont know for sure.. im having a hard time deciding how important it is? I dont mind spending alot if it makes a difference. I guess i dont know if a longer one makes a noticable difference from a shorter one or? I wonder if they would let me try a bunch at archery country and see what works best?

I only use a stabalizer to hold my bow straight up and down with a very loose grip. Most bows are a bit top heavy, added weight to the bottom balances the bow in your hand. (if that makes sense) Most new bows today are quiet and very vibration free, so getting one for those reasons don't hold water anymore IMO.

I disagree that most bows today don't need the added dampening. I was fortunate enough to buy a new bow this year so I shot most of the new models and even the smoothest handling bows still had some shock. I think thats where a cheap S-coil can do the job. I had the s-coil on my old bow and it was plenty for the shock.

I do completely agree with having a longer and heavier stabilizer out front to help be more steady. I've tried a few and really found it to be true.

I like the Vibracheck and the new Octane from Bowtech.

I have a doinker as well.. I too feel that even though many bows do a good job of getting rid of vibration, any little bit you can add helps!

I took the Limbsaver of my old bow and placed it on my new DXT. I agree with others that the extra protection cannot hurt.
