Default Stabilizers

I'm using a Sims Ex-press on my '95 Hoyt. It's noticeably quieter than the hard tube Hoyt stab that came with the bow, but it's not as good at reducing the bow's twist on release, probably because of the weight difference.

I've thought about the options and I'm not sure which way to go. Get a longer S-coil or X-coil, screw the S-coil to the end of the Hoyt stab, or just get a new one altogether. Whaddya think?

Of course, the real answer is a NEW BOW! Next year.

Default Simms S coil works well

Very affordable.

Posten and B-Stinger are both good stabilizers as well. Might go a little longer.

Getting the weight out there helps the most. I use old-style d-flex bows and 8-10 stabilizers work great at slowing things down. If you have a more reflexed bow it may take more weight on a shorter stabilizer, or weight out a little farther with a long stabilizer of 10-plus inches. When you really think about it, you can use a stabilizer as long as a nocked arrow without causing too much grief from a stand. It won't stick out any more than your arrow. If your a ground deer-stalker, shorter but heavy on the end might work better.
That pic above. Great deer, but I doubt that little sims did much for lateral movement. Vertical, yes. But not lateral.

Thumbs up

Maybe your local pro shop would let you experiment with different ones!
