Default Stabilizer suggestions...

Well I just got an amazing deal on a brand new in box 2016 Elite Synergy. Im going to need to start customizing it soon and figured Id start with a stabilizer. Im primarily using the bow for hunting so Id like one that reduces vibration and sound as much as possible! Any suggestions are appreciated! I just got into archery a little over a year ago so I need all the help I can get. Heh

I've been happy with the Apex End game. 8" and reasonable price. I also have a nice one that I made, it's 15".

Doinker all the way 'round here. I shoot the 10.5" on my hunting rig with 6 ounces of weight, works great. Also keeps me legal for bowhunter freestyle class in TFAA.

As a side note, Cartel is building some really inexpensive rods right now, you can find them on Lancaster, a 12" bar for about $20-30, it's a good deal, but you will have to add the weights and the dampener.

Bee Stinger and Doinker both sell kits, with a front bar and a side bar for hunting, with weights; these run about $280-300 but are an all in one kit and they look and perform great.

I saw another company called wick stick that makes kits that have hundreds of custom color options and for a dual bar setup with v mount it's like 160- 180 bucks.

That's a good deal if they are well built. Do you use them?

I think I may go with either the apex endgame or a shadow stab. Still debating. Thanks for all the input, I really appreciate it!

Check out Stokerized. High quality carbon stabilizers. The carbon makes the rod light and all the weight from the weight disks makes all the weight at the end, which you want to help keep the bow steady. I have 11 one on my RX-3, it really helps a lot.

Not yet, but I will soon. If OP will buy my Apex End game I will get a set. Lol. They look to be quality built. I will post it up if I get them.
