    Can someone explain stabilizers, V-bars, balance weights etc

    I'm not new to archery, been bow hunting for 25 yrs; but I am just getting in to target archery. I've purchased a Conquest Triumph, Sword Titan sight and a Spott Hogg Infinity rest to dedicate this bow to shooting spots and maybe 3D.

    What I'm not terribly clear on is what the long stabilizers and/or v-bar stabilizers and additional weights do exactly. Maybe the better question is how does one determine what one needs?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I also presume there have been books written on such things, if anyone can suggest a good one for a neophyte target shooter I would appreciate that information too.

    Thanks in advance!!

    Here is a pretty good article on the subject:

    Also, Dan McCathy wrote an excellent article on this in the now defunct Tournement Archer magazine. I think it was the 2nd issue. I need to find my copy and scan it for people who are interested. It has some great information.

    Hope this helps,
    Allen
