    Stabilizers and weights take a lot of trial and error. The problem is most people do not have access to these to test them out.

    We have found that changing the balance and weight of the bow will drastically change how the bow aims. You go from a bow that wobbles all over the place to a bow that holds like a rock. It might need side weight, back weight, front weight, who knows. But it does make a huge difference.

    I think a little Jack Daniels on the rocks is calling me before bed and the stupid local news. Hey ! 40 degrees tomorrow !
    I might actually be able to dig my targets out of the snow drifts in the yard.
    That will save me $7 for each trip to the local indoor range.

    Back on topic...

    I'm not sure I understand the stabilizer usage issue in general. Is there some information that actually explains what you want to try and do with stabilization and balancing ?
    After this hunting season I put a 1/4 inch aluminum plate on my Allegiance that moved the quiver back about 3 inches and in toward the riser about 1/2 inch. My bow's balance improved a ton. I have to resight it in but when at full draw it feels a lot more comfortable. It was hard for me to believe that so little change made such a big difference. The thing cost me $8.

    He gave it his all though. I wanted him to win since i'm a fan of the real veterans that have been around for 15-20 years. That was a really great finish, I just wished Martin would have won.

    I asked this question because I am a hunter never had a target setup. I asked who makes the best and WHY in your opinion. That does not mean I will go out and buy a Doinker because someone says they are the best. I did'nt even know about the stabalizers sold over on AT. They seem to be very nice. I wanted different options to choose from. Around here we do not have a shop where they stock 10 different target stabalizers to go in and try out and I really do not have the funds to just start buying them and trying to find something I like. This was a simple thread to talk a little archery if you do not want to talk about stabalizers then do not post. Its that easy. This is not meant as an attack just stating why I started the thread so please if this is taken personally then I am sorry. Just feeling as though I needed to make it clear as to why I started the thread. So who was it that makes the BEST.

    Ok then more of you are shooting Doinker so that means it must be the best. Therefore thats what I'm gonna buy.

    No wait the guy with the PINK bow shoots a doinker maybe thats not what I'm gonna buy.

    Just kidding around thanks for everyones response.

    By the way Dredly do I have to signify that I shoot right handed??..............no wait Elite does'nt make stabilizers do they.

    I use a cartel stabilizer and i like it alot and it only costs 45 dollars and its made for targets. and on the end of it you can adjust the weights. idk i am just getting use to the weight of it so i took the weights off to make it lighter but right when i draw back the bow wiggles from left to right a little bit is that bad?

    Alittle wiggle on the draw is nothing...as long as you can keep it steady on target at full draw...

    There is a good discussion on balancing a bow in George Ryal's new video.

    Like Chris posted, it's basically a trial & error process to find what holds the best for you. You also want to balance holding weight with the mass weight of the bow for the steadiest setup.

    Of course getting your draw length to the sweet spot will also make you much steadier.
