    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:

    http://www.archerylearningcenter.arc...hery-02-10.pdf

    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,

    What defines you as an archer isn’t how many arrows you’ve shot or what your highest score was.
    What defines you as an archer is the decision to pick up your bow, get out of the house and shoot.

    Thanks for that info; I will read both articles!
