    Default Hoyt Floating vs Static

    Anyone have any opinions on a floating yoke vs. a static yoke on a Trykon?? I'm having a new string and set of cables made by wolfden and I need to decide if I want a floating or static yoke. Any hoyt experts out there??

    Default static

    the static yoke is sometimes easier for tuneing purposes.

    The static will allow you to adjust cam lean, the floating will natually adjust.

    Some prefer the control, some trust the factory method.

    I say let it float... Hoyt does,.... and they have been making bows almost 3 times longer than I have been alive.

    Good point jim, what kind of stablizers do you make for hunting rigs? Ive seen some of the larger ones you make for target and 3d bows, just curious what you can make for a hunting setup??

    What are your prices and delivery time? I currently shoot an scoil on my trykon and don't have a reason to replace it, but i've heard your stabilizers are by far the best........

    If what you have is working you may not want to change it, But I will say an s-coil is a dampener, not a stabilizer. If you try a bar with the bulk of the weight out to the end where it has the most leverage to limit pin movement, you will notice the difference.

    All of my fully loaded woodsmans (w/weight sets and jax) weigh in at 8.5oz total or less depending on length.

    And they are adjustable, like a stab should be.If you cant tweek the weight to feel, dont waste your time with it.

    If vibration is an issue, an added max jax to one of my bars will soak up as much if not more of the vibration than an S-coil.

    I should start a thread just for my Woodsmans.

    What lengths do you make, im thinking something no more than 5" (hopefully it will still fit in my case) with the rubber jax. How is the weight adjustable, and what are your prices?

    I make 4"-12" the weights are stackable on the end. I sell them measured before the weights are added. so an 8"er with a weight set ends up 9.75"

    Keep in mind the most important factor to a stabs performance is its length. so the shorter you go, the less leverage it has to get the job done.

    I am using an 8"er with a full weight set 9.75" total.

    Most guys stick with a ten plus a WS.

    Prices are $45 plus weights or jax. Fully loaded runs $60 shipped.

    I gotta say that at first I was not impressed with the woodsman I. I liked my S-Coil and did'nt want to change. But just like Jim stated its more about balance with a stabalizer. I shoot an XT so vibration is non-existant especially with my limbsavers and STS. Anyhow I am really starting to "FEEL" the difference in stabalizers as in balance. Jim makes a great product. I absolutely loved my 24" bar from the start on my Ovation. I think I am going to need some weights to play around with though. Do yourselves a favor and contact Jim he will help you out.

    I tie mine so they are static, then i made the axel to axel distance on each side the same. Did my vectrix and my trykon, I dont really think its all that big of a deal as the floater pry wont move, and change the cam lean, or axel to axel lenght on each side.
