    I will be honest. I am not a great shooter, I shoot well, but not great. For me I don't see a significant incarease in accuracy using one on my new bow (i did see accuracy increase on my old bow). So I don't use one. It makes my bow lighter for the pack in and out. On my old bow I used the little doinker

    Simple and effective. Nothing to break or go wrong and works like a charm.

    Thats the one I have on my bow currently. There are a lot of guys that swear a good stabilizer increases accuracy dramatically. B-Stingers, Doinkers, etc. I was just wondering if this was more for target shooting or if hunters were using them too.

    I'm using a B-Stinger 8.5" Sport Hunter. I love that stabilizer and shoot a Doinker on my backup bow. I really like my B Stinger and have noticed better accuracy with that set up.

    A good stabilizer will help to steadyyour pin on the target which in turn helps with accuracy. There are some good stabs out there. I also feel there are a lot of stabs out there help with dampening but have no effect in stabilizing your bow. Since i put a good quality stab on my bow, my groups have really tightned up out past 40 yards. They are worth the extra eight in my book. I use a K-tech 5". Here is a pic.

    I use a B-stinger 12" pro hunter with the 8 oz weight in the Idaho backcountry. I shoot a carbon matrix so its still lighter than my old Katera XL with a 12 doinker. I like to use as much stabilizer as reasonable and hank the weight out in the end. Rubber doesnt to much in a stabilizer. A longer stabilizer will steady your shot , especially at ranges longer than 20 yards. But what it really comes down to is shoot what your comfortable with and trust. Now is the time to try experimenting with your gear during the 3D season not a week before the season. A goos proshop should let you put a stabilizer on your bow and let you try before you buy. Thats one advantage to a good local bow shop.

    I shoot the Limbsaver windjammer. I really like the offset weight to balance my bow, with a quiver full of arrows it would tend to tip to the right a little, now with the offset weight it sits in my hand through the whole shot.
    Shoot STR8
