Put it on & start adding weight till YOU are comfortable with it as YOU are the one that will be shooting it!
Gotcha, simple enough I suppose. I have read a little about using stabilizers to balance out your bow not necessarily so that it sits perfectly level but so that it feels good for the shooter. I’ll keep that in mind.Put it on & start adding weight till YOU are comfortable with it as YOU are the one that will be shooting it!
Thanks for such a detailed reply. I knew a heavier bow is generally going to be more stable and accurate as long as the shooter can comfortably hold it, I have yet to play with it myself l. Just started shooting about 5 months ago. Your post made me read a bit more about holding weight. I had not clue it impacted the stability relative to the weight on the front of the bow which makes intuitive sense now.I have about 6-10 ounces on the front of a 10-15" bar and about 8-14 ounces on the back typically on a 10" bar... I don't even notice the weight of the sight... Weight is generally your friend and the Triple Stack housing is the same weight as the MRT 3 pin housing. In the big picture it is less than an ounce heavier than any comparable sight out there(which is very few as only a couple companies offer micro adjustable pins). When you add those features you add weight or dramatically cut durability. You can't really have one without the other.
Bottom line is if your bow is so light that changing sights makes a drastic difference in how your bow aims, it's probably too light to begin with if you really care about shooting well. Remember, in the end shot placement is the king and nothing else really matters. If a couple ounces changes your setup that much, that close to the center of mass of the bow, the wind will blow you all over the place and any adrenaline will make you shake to the point of missing. More people would shoot heavier bows, and more holding weight if they truly wanted to shoot better, with a few exceptions of people with less upper body strength like kids and women. Notice that the trend of super lightweight bows has gone by the wayside many years ago? It used to be all about weight, even with aluminum bows. Carbon bows have brought the weight down, but every lightweight carbon bow I have owned, I have added a TON of weight to, and they shot phenomenal. Weigh your bow down as heavy as you can comfortably shoot and carry it. Shoot as much holding weight as you can comfortably hold at full draw. It is a balancing act, more holding weight will like more mass weight and more front weight and vise versa. Everyone's form and body structure is different, I won't lie, I can't hold as much holding weight and mass weight as I would like to. I'm only about 13-14# of holding weight and honestly wish I could get it up to closer to 16# for hunting and target. I just don't shoot enough, nor do I have the body build to do it.
