Hey all, now that season is over for most of us it's time to start prepping for 2018. If you are looking to get a performance upgrade from your bow check out titaniumarcheryproducts.com. I have been shooting different TAP products all year including their 2 different stabilizers, the Suppressor Elite and Element X, the Booster, as well as the titanium string stop. TAP is focused on performance driven products, which is why they use titanium and developed a vibration dampen vortex compound. I have found that this combination definitely dissipated vibration faster than my other stabilizers, which in turn makes my bow quieter. I'll take a quiet bow all day everyday and twice on Sunday.

The elite stabilizer is a 1" diameter titanium tube that is internally weighted with vortex compound. It also has a 1 ounce removable end cap that allows you to adjust your weight stack for balance at draw. This was the first product I used from TAP and I was extremely impressed with the results. If I was purely a saddle/stationary hunter I would be using this stab exlusivily, however I like to change up how I hunt which is why I also tried the Element X.

The Element X shares the same properties as the elite with one major difference, it has a 5/8" diameter instead of the 1". This makes a big difference in my opinion when you are shooting in windy conditions, there is simply less material to be affected by the wind.

The titanium string stop was my next purchase (I was actually lucky enough to shoot the prototype for a while). If you don't necessarily like stabilizers, but want less vibration and noise, this is definitely the product to check out. I didn't think my bow could get any better, but once I put this on all I could say was wow! If you think about it, this makes perfect sense, stop vibration at the source. Most string stops are made from the cheapest option for bow manufacturers and no thought is given to their performance. Again TAP is combining titanium and vortex, with the use of the tried and true limbsaver node, to dissipate vibration extremely efficiently.

The final product I've used from TAP is the Booster. This piece was developed to increase the performance of any stabilizer you may have, but people who use tactacam and other action cameras have noticed that it greatly enhances the video quality, making the footage much smoother. I use mine on the back side of the riser when in the woods, it fits perfect between my cables and riser.

If you have any questions about TAP or their products feel free to ask, also checkout their Facebook and Instagram pages, as well as their website www.titaniumarcheryproducts.com If you call them up you will actually speak with Sam the owner, and he will gladly help you out with anything you may need! They also have camo options and some custom color schemes as well.

I will say I’m a huge fan of my Element X. Love the smaller diameter. Its clean looking and makes the shot feel a little softer. As far as it making a sound when when hitting a rock, it doesnt. Sure maybe if it were a hollow tube, but its not. Plus I am a huge fan of smaller business which Sam @ TAP is.

I was unaware it was filled. What is it filled with.

Its called a Vortex Compound. What exactly that is I have no clue. I honestly purchased my first one just because the company is local to me. I said what the hell lets try it and support somone local. I personally had never put much thought into stabalizers but I shot it against the stab I was running and went back and forth between the two and really noticed that softer feel from the TAP. I’m really excited to see what they do with my Carbon Air thats on its way.

Vortex compound, sounds like marketing speak for some kind of elastomer. Or maybe it just some of this in a tube:

It is far from spray foam. It's a compound that Sam developed to fill the stabs with. It provides internal weighting and reacts instantly to vibration and shock.

At least it isn't Dorge trying to revolutionize the archery industry with titanium fasteners.

That's what make them unique. These stabs not only balance but soak up bow recoil and noise better than just a dead weight stab. I'm guessing he made them out of titanium so they would be light enough to add dampening material to them. A mass stab is a mass stab, no matter what shape it is or what kind of decals the manufacturer puts on them, there really isn't a nickels worth of difference in 90% of the carbon stabs offered today. The TAP ones are different, and they work.

The higher end stabs can't touch the TAP for recoil absorption, and I feel the TAP even outshines the mass stabs on pin float reduction. Does two jobs at one time for the same price or cheaper...wth isn't there to like about that?
