I use a 12 inch Doinker on my hunting bow and it doesn't get in the way, also works well for target shooting. Keep in mind Bowhunter class has a 12 inch limit

For "Open Class" target I use a 30" Big Dawg stabalizer

Welcome to the forum.

Stabilizers seem to be very personal items. Everyone seems to have a differing opinion as to what length works best for them. They are a "feel" item. They are used to produce a certain feel to the shooter. With all the different grips, draw cycles, poundages and balancing needs, there really isn't a good answer for your question.

Your best bet is to try to find a place with different lengths and weights and try them on YOUR bow and see what feels the best.

I use 30" Doinker on mine, that is as long as I would want to go.

You do not necessarily have to use a stabilizer. Most of my hunting buddies don't use one. So if your just going to shoot for fun try the bow without one and see how it goes. Then you can get a baseline for what the bow feels like without one and then try a few and take it from there.

Good luck and have fun !
