Default Bow stabilizer

I need to buy a couple for my wife and son for 3D shoots. They are both shooting the Mission Craze. What would be a good choice that won't leave me too broke? I shoot a Z7 and probably need something as well, thoughts on that would be appreciated.

Stokerized SS1 it is a little expensive. What's your price range?

Take a look at the Apex Gear "Bone Collector" Pro tune XS. I put one on my son's Craze and his groups improved quickly. Cheap too!

Posten or Stokerized SS1 is what I am using. Go to Posten's website and read what the true function of a stabilizer is and then think about what you need/want.

The black or camo bowtech with the red is what I shoot. $30 on ebay and it looks sick and performs great!

Storkerized and Doinker Carbon Rods are two good ones. There are others as well that are great.

I just ordered a B-Stinger...hope they're worth all the hype....in the meantime the octane stabilizer is a good one and has served my Bowtech Destroyer 350 for 3 years now without any problems and tight groups. I can't complain about it just wanna try something new!!

if you are shooting in a hunter class be sure the stabilizer that you choose is 12 inches or less.

Almost like choosing a bow. Go to a good shop and shoot what they have and see what feels the best in reducing noise, taking out vibration and balancing the bow the best.

my understanding is posten is caput.

I've called him numerous times over the last 18 months and gotten no return calls. I wouldn't buy from someone who doesn't return calls. too many orders on the internet that don't get fulfilled.

I like stokerized and I have an ss1. I think a normal bar with weight upfront is the first place to go the ss1 isn't complicated but you've got to invest more time into setting it up.

I'd check out the enforcer stabilizer from vendetta archery.

You can get them in 6 8 10 or 12 inches and you can also choose a 5 inch or 3.5 inch head.

With the 5 inch you can offset it in 5 different positions and I think the 3 inch has 3 positions.

The head can also rotate 360 degrees and you can put a different amount of weight on each end.

They are very well built stabilizers I really like them.

The weights are cheap unlike the B-stringer so it's cheap to try different arrangements.
