I filled them with compressed packing peanuts. Really light and deadens the sound

They look good. I did what you did, made inserts then bought SS and aluminum tube to make outserts. I use all SS parts at the far end and aluminum in the middle and riser ends. I made mine two pieces for storage and to use as a carry handle. I did buy the QR 90 deg adaptor.

I had an idea but not sure how well it would work. I thought about using plasti-dip spray rubber or flex seal spray to coat the inside of the rods.

I'd be more inclined to stuff foam ear plugs into it, would think the plasti-dip wouldn't reach the middle very well and it does go on thin.

My latest set of end caps and weights. Just have to paint them. This stabilizer will be stuffed with foam earplugs.

Good idea, I used cut up plastic fishing worms and left them slightly loose so they could vibrate. I think.

I think I need to order some parts. I like to use carbon fiber golf shafts. They can be really cheap to free with some digging. Some even have anti vibration built into them. For target stabs they work very well.

For a filling on fatter stabs I like to use the water beads and use just enough liquid to get them to the desired diameter.

I had a look at my local reuse recycling place for carbon golf clubs and trekking poles. No luck lol.

I’m going to be getting carbon tubes in after December. To make some more stabilizers up to 20” long.
