  1. Selecting a Stabilizer

    Bow Tuning
    Hi, I'm a hunting and 3D archer and I'm wondering about my stabilizer. Presently, I have 5 inch 6.5 oz stabilizer. Do I need to add enough weight to counter the weight of my sight? (all-metal construction) My sight picture is fairly steady - but it could definitely be improved. I'm hoping...

    Bow Tuning
