Its a down economy and the stabilizer market is pretty crowded. Not seeing any more spam from Coach(Spamie)Bernie Fine is my X mas wish.

I can not speak for Jim's where abouts. I can say that I ordered a stabilizer set up from him a few years ago and he told me it would be a few weeks. I paid him for it when I ordered it and I got it a couple months later. It was everything he said it would be and he through in a t shirt with it. I only have had the one dealing with him but it was a ok

Yes, I ordered it Oct 14th and paid 55$ for it and have heard nothing, I cant reach him by phone or email. If it is going to take months I wish he would just let me know.Thanks for the welcome, I would like to get into 3D and target shooting this year, kind of like extending the hunting season. Are there many shoots in W.V.? I will let you know what becomes of the QD, maybe Ill get a tee shirt.

I haven't dealt directly with him but thought he had a pretty good reputation.

He screwed overr a ton of people winter/spring 2011 with not sending product that was ordered and paid for. Do a search on Archery Talk. His communication is horrible.

Good luck to you.

The only way you could get away with talk like that on AT is if Posten was pat due on his AT contribution and to think all those uncompensated staff salesman wasnt enough to keep his raft afloat.

I ordered a pair of side bars from him a few yrs. ago. Took a little longer that I was told but, it wasn't bad.

Sounds like he's gotten more business than he can handle?

To be honest I don't really see what the big deal is w/ his product? Powder coating was poor and sloppy glue residue at the bases.

Heard nothing but complaints as of late about him. I was going to order a stabilizer from him not long ago for my Hoyts, but glad I did some research first.

His web site no longer exists, and he has some negative things said about his business on the BBB now as well. Posten Stabilizers are no longer.

Westy , you know that " yours truly " only says the good things about you even if I got to make things up , cause I'd spend a life time talking the other way and I ain't got the time , mate !
