B-Stinger is well worth a good look you will be happy and you get 30 money back! try one!



The farther the weight is away from the bow, the steadier you will hold. This 12" long stabilizer was designed with the BHFS (bowhunter freestyle) shooter in mind. The rigid, ultra lightweight shaft allows all of the weight in this stabilizer to be placed out at the tip. The shape of the weight was even designed to get the maximum amount of weight as close to 12" away from the bow as possible.

Weights available: 8 oz., 11 oz., 14 oz., & 17 oz.

How does the B-Stinger work?
To increase the stability of something such as our bows, we must add weight to them. Since our bows experience many changing forces including torque, where we place that weight is also very important. It turns out that placing the weight as far out from the axis of rotation (i.e. the axis is at about the grip of the bow) is also extremely important. An example of this would be to take a broom and hold it by the bristled end and try to shake the handle back and forth. You’ll see that it is quite easy. Now switch the broom around and hold it from the handle and try to shake the bristled end back and forth. It will be much more resistant to your movements. If you really want to see the principle (i.e. rotational inertia) in action, try shaking the B-Stinger back and forth from each end. All the weight on the B-Stinger is intentionally placed as near to the twelfth inch as possible. This is done so that you can both hold more steady at full draw and so that if you make a mistake at the time of your shot, the B-Stinger will increase your bows tendency to remain at rest (i.e. more stabile) keeping your bad shots closer to the middle.

How much weight should I support with my B-Stinger?
With any stabilizer you want as much weight as you can comfortably support during the duration of the whole archery tournament. The more weight the better until it is too much. If you’re at full draw and your mind is telling you, “You better get rid of this arrow before your arm falls off!” then you have too much weight. Weight is a key component of making your bow more stabile. Remember, the more weight the better, until it is too much.
What does the B-Stinger do for vibration?
The short answer is, it has Sorbothane (A synthetic material designed specifically to eliminate vibration) in the tube. The real answer is that by keeping the stabilizer bar both light and very rigid and placing the majority of the weight out near the end, your bow will no longer jerk violently in your hand when you shoot it. As a result you have a quieter shot and you can then focus dampening vibration at its source (i.e. the string, the cables, the limbs, and the cams). If you wanted your guitar to stop making noise every time you plucked the string, would you attach a “stabilizer with rubber on the end” out on the headstock (the end) of the guitar? Of course not but that’s exactly what were being told to do with our bows. If you want your guitar to hold still, attach it to something solid. If you want your Guitar to be quiet when you pluck the stings, attach a nice piece of vibration dampening material right at the source, the guitar strings. The same rules apply for our bows.

Here's something new

Have you ever heard of Dead-In Stabilizers?

They are made by my friend Phil Long, of Mathews fame.

He's a pro for them and just missed winning the truck at their invitational a couple years ago.

He's a Mathews dealer and carefully designed the stabilizers.
They come in various lengths and not the standard, 7,12,30

I don't think he has a website yet but you can reach him at

tell him Marcy(from Virginia) sent you.
