That stab immediately came to my mind as well fiddle; however even for hunting I like a stab that does put the balance of the bow where I want it as well as help with vibration.

The S-coil is good for quieting and vibration dampening, but as far as stabilizing with weight it is worthless. The NAP shockblocker is good for stabilizing but less on quieting.

So if you want to hold steadier stay with the NAP, if you want quieter go with s-coil.??

Posten Stabs that way you can customize your weight. And Bow Jax Stackers rock at dampening Vibes.

Another vote for the S-Coil for vibration dampening.

If you want a true stabalizer then go with a POSTEN with a bowjax on it.

I like the Kyber Shock stabilizer. It comes in camo and various other colors and lengths. It also gives some weight.
