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.

    •  I use a Digger mount on my ATV and sled.  Its fast and easy.   I'm on the ice everyday testing and tweaking Nils blades. I rack the auger on every blade change and some days that could be 20 times so for the me the Digger is exactly what I need.  The clamp on the Digger makes fast work of securing the auger and removal.   The height of the Digger frees room on the rack for more gear.      Once in a while we'll take my buddies ATV out fishing.  Hes got no auger rack so we'll bungie the auger to the ATV rack. It works but it makes me appreciate the Digger rack all the more.   Any rack would be an improvement there.   In the past guys have posted their homemade racks and I hope they do so again.   
    • Currently have a couple empires. Most likely toss one of them in. If I go with a furnace I'll use a small plug in step down transformer 120v AC to 12DC. They are cheap as hell basically an oversized cellphone charger.
    •   You realize the only ones taking Calexit with any seriousness are conservatives. Which means conservatives are the ones falling for the Russian propaganda. Liberals say it sarcastically because conservatives think the country would be better off without the "coastal liberal elites" (even though California pays in $405 billion in federal taxes and receives only $344 billion in federal spending, meaning the rest of the country would be $61 billion poorer without California).
    •   As in the one that lets me use his cabin for Turkey and Deer hunting!
    • So Bear, please describe what your policy on those drugs now banned would be, in as much detail as you can.     I am really wondering what the alternative envisioned by the "stop the war on drugs" folks is.      
    •   Bear, I explained why we are stuck with the two party system.   If you don't like the two we have, you need to "pull a trump" and take over one of them.     Good Luck. 
    • Actually only one species of bumblebee so far.     I have no idea how one distinguishes the species of bumblebees.

    • I would suggest using non-oxy gas also!
    • I highly doubt it needs carb kits if only sat that long. Draining the carb bowls and spraying carb cleaner in there can clean things up a lot and loosen sticky floats. Should be a main jet on each carb you can pull to drain carb bowls and spray into and clean jet. Put in fresh gas with seafoam in it and new plugs and it will probably run. Impeller is a pretty easy job to. Should be able to find a video on u tube on how to do it. I would drain my carb bowls on my old 115 2 stroke every spring and you would be surprised at the slimy stuff that came out of them sometimes and that was just sitting over winter.
