    B Stinger?

    I'm considering ordering a complete set up for my VE+? I like the Premier Plus 30" or 27" Stabilizer w/ 10" or 12" side bars. I would like to hear some opinions on these before dropping nearly $400 bucks for the set up?

    Premier Plus setup is the best stab setup I have used yet. Just put a 27" Premier Plus Honeycomb on my MR5 for 3D and I love it. Also an FYI check out the classifieds here, can get a great deal on a set and don't need to drop $400 on them new.

    You might even want to step back to a 24". But as said look over the classifieds.

    get a 12" to start as back bar. Probably 30" on front. They have some awesome stabilizers...

    B Stinger?

    The longer the bar you use, in theory, the least amount of weight you need to use to stabilize the sight picture for your shooting process and form, same theory for both side and main rods

    I'm very pleased with my Premier Plus's. I only recently converted this bow over and I wish I'd done it sooner. They sure aim nice.

    This is a 30" and a 12".

    i own a premier plus 27'' stab. they are nice i like it, but$$$ i paid 250$ now i wish i might have bought a dead center just for the money there about half the price and just as good of quality. ill keep the b-stinger aand i want b-stinger side bars but i just started a leage (3d) and a kid has a hole dead center set up, needless to say ill be buying dead center side bars and v-bar it is great and a good product, if you have your heart set on a premier plus got to lancaster or bow hunter superstore they have the best price. either way you wont regret either

    Best bars on the market . I end up buying new people in the classified wanted almost new price . As far as length up front 30 or 33 . I bought a 30 and im in the proscess of buy a 33 to try . On the back bar im running a 15 and wouldnt change I like the bar down and low with the length u still have plenty of leverage due to the length

    I have a 30" and a 15" back bar premier set for normal shooting and love it, but i also have a 24" and a 12" premier set up for wind shooting.. I have tested both set up's extensively and i give a slight edge to the 30" and the 15" but that is when everything is perfect.. But they become sails in the wind, so i still struggle on this topic all the time. Because of the not so perfect conditions on a 3D course.. Hope this helps and God bless..

    I also have b stingers and can't say anything bad about them. They are great and do their job, but why so expensive? Aren't they nothing more than hollow carbon fiber rods that hold weights at the end? What makes one better than the other? Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the sole purpose of a target stabilizer to be as light and as stiff as possible to hold the majority of the weight at the extreme end?

    I have used b stingers on both my shooters. pricey indeed, I would be looking on ebay and would go doink or b sting or bernie or even something else, keep my options open and save $50-$100. a stab system is commercially available carbon tubes with alum caps and weights, i dont care who puts theyre sticker on the side and glues the end caps on.

    Yours sure are nice Lol but ya B stinger premier plus's are some of my favorite stabilizers! i just recently went to doinker for a few reasons but stinger is still on top and worth every penny you spend on them!

    For a ve+ don't go any shorter than a 30" main 33-36" is better. 12 or 15" back, doesn't really matter but a 15" will hold better

    if you dont plan on running a ton of weight you can get away with the competitors. at 4oz on my 30" and 8 or 9 on my 15" back bar i was fine with the comps. but once i got upto 7 and 13 i had to upgrde to the premiers they started to get bouncy. ill be selling a 30" front competitor and 15" rear here pretty soon.

    B Stinger?

    I've been using the older "premiere" stingers on my VE+ and they've been excellent. 30" with the 1" QD, and 4oz in front, and 12" + 2" extension and 1" QD in back with 13oz. Sunday, I picked up the premiere plus rods , 33" and 15". Haven't had a chance to work with them yet...
