They can help for sure, if not pro shooters wouldn't use them. Of course you need to have it on the bow when you practice. I can normally do pretty well without mine out to 80 yards, for sure acceptable hunting groups without one, but if I do put my extendable stabilizer on and extend it out to 21" it for sure steadies the bow. Will I ever have it on the bow extended to 21" during an actual hunt, very unlikely, I really prefer to practice without a stabilizer because I put on hundreds of miles a year while packing a bow and the extra weight really isn't worth the small gain I get. My last 3 bulls have been killed without my stabilizer on the bow.
Yes, no, maybe!!!! There is no right or wrong answer. Inly what works for you and makes yiu feel warm and fuzzy. The choices are more than there are bows.
Myself yes I use them. What kind, model, weight, length. The one that works for just me.
