It only matters on long rods, and it seems he's probably asking about a shorter stab for hunting. With rods 12" and shorter you won't notice a difference in stiffness. It's the same as with arrows....the shorter the shaft the stiffer it seems....so the stiffness of a stab does not matter ?? oohhhh Buster , AT crew will eat You alive for that ....Ya should've known better :tongue: lol
thats more for sound deadening than anything, not much stability in a 4" 4oz stab (if you want to even call it that) the most important feature is exactly what its name implies-------stabilizer, a combo of weight distribution, vibration/ sound deadening characteristicsIs it weight in the right place, length, or reduced vibration that gives the ability to help with accuracy. I see some stabilizers that are only 4" long and weigh 4 oz's. How does something that short and light help you hold more steady?
