    Putting together a new Hoyt set up. Just wanted some opinions on a solid stabilizer suitable for primarily hunting. Thanks

    Can't go wrong with a b-stinger.

    Check out TAP stabilizers too.

    I have had the ones like Joe put up, and they work fine. I may get some flack for this, but I really do not think you have to put a bunch of$$$$ in a stabby. ( jmo),. I also shoot target archery a little , I cannot understand why a " balance weight"' should bring so much money

    If I recall right the ones Joe had on were about $20 - $25 , and last for years, I have had a couple come into the shop and they tend to sort of melt, but this takes years to happen, and sometimes never. If you go to " archery talk" you should be able to off real cheap, or try a couple

    You have to decide if you want a stab or a damper. The S coil is a damper but since it does add mass it will alter the balance of the bow some but not it's main function. If you can find a place that will let you test drive, good luck with that, then you can see how the bow holds, could be better could be worse. Stabs really come into their own for shots over 30 yards IMO. Changing and or adding a stab can effect POI so just be aware. It's not an easy answer and a hunter has much to consider. I shoot a 12" acrylic model and it has not hampered me in the field. Small ground blinds being the exception. Then again my doghouse is too small regardless of stab length.

    I bought a pine ridge stabilizer and it seems to dampen the bow really well think it was $25.

    What I can't understand, is why so many of them stink like Chinese rubber so bad I don't dare take them in the woods! I've bought both the Limbsaver and TruGlo well over a year ago, maybe even 2 years now and they both still stink. If anyone wants them, you can have them.

    I wound up getting a new Bear and I'm using the Trophy Ridge stabilizer that came in the RTH package. That one doesn't smell so bad.

    also, in an amount of time you will be handling your bow, and find something on your hands that looks like you stuck your hand in a crappy diaper, not sure if it is heat or what , but I have seen it a number of times on their stabbys, and dampeners, ( the ones that stick on you limbs
