Stabilizer question????
« on: August 18, 2013, 12:15:44 AM »
Ok the other day i was watching levi morgan and some of the shots he takes i wish i was comfortable with shots half that distance. Lol i looked into his set up and watched one episode where he gave some tips on stabilizers but never did answer my question. So i figured i would ask you guys. At 30 yard i can hit a nickel. But at 40 yards i cant seem to hold my bow hand steady from drifting up down left right. Would one of these 10 inch stabilizers help steady my hand? Whats yalls experiences?

Just curious Dustin. Does it matter if you are inside or outside? I notice at about 60 yds I get a little squirrelly. Do you shoot helical or straight fletchings? I have a 4" on my bow.  Interested in seeing what everyone else says.

I have a stabilizer I think it 8 inch  used it for ever, even during tournament it helps with tork of the bow  the hand thing I think is you need to build up the mussel in your arm and back and shoulder   ##$%#1119

I only shoot outside and I shoot the short fletchings I think they are helical.

levi shoots a ton. more than I ever had time to. keep that in mind.

my guess is it's all in your head. if you have a place you can shoot 60-80 yards w/ a very big backstop/target, definitely go there and shoot. you won't be nervous about loosing arrows and you can just go shoot and have fun. after playing at those ranges, 40 yards will be a slam dunk.

also, after each shot, try to keep your site on the bullseye until after your arrow hits. that will keep you from dropping or flinching.

good luck

I agree with Yari. Shoot long distance for fun/practice and then when you move closer they will seem easier. I shoot 80 and 90yds every day I shoot and have a blast doing it.

Also I was having a problem getting good groups at 90yds, but could hold 6 inch or less groups at 80yds until I used a friends 10 inch B-Stinger stabilizer with a total of 6ozs. of weight. Once I used it at 90yds I bought my own the next day. Not sure how it works like it does, but for my friend and I it really helps steady the bow a lot.
