The Role of the Bow Stabilizer
Bow stabilizers are an important part of the equipment required by a compound bow shooter, particularly if the bow experiences any kind of vibration. The bow stabilizer serves two purposes and both of them result in the ability to shoot arrows more consistently. Firstly, a stabilizer will add weight to the bow, but it adds the weight off the front of the bow, offsetting the tendency for the draw to pull the bow out of alignment when attempting to aim. The extra weight of the stabilizer serves to steady the bow and hence, the shot. Secondly, the bow stabilizer gives the force of vibrations somewhere to go other than into the shooter's hand.
Compound bows are capable of generating tremendous amounts of force, a lot of which go into propelling the arrow. But there is even more force that is not directed at the arrow and this force travels around the frame of the bow looking for a place to exert itself. Without a bow stabilizer the only other object attached to the bow is the shooter and that is where the force, in the form of vibrations, will be expended. This force is what is commonly known as hand shock.
The bow stabilizer takes the brunt of the excess force and allows it to escape down its length. The result is much less shock to the hand of the shooter, plus much less noise from the bow.
There are different sized stabilizers used on different sized bows. A short framed bow doesn't require a super long stabilizer, one of the shorter ones will do the trick nicely. Generally short framed bows are used by hunters who need to cover overgrown terrain where a long bow stabilizer wound just get snagged all the time. The longer bow stabilizers are generally used for target shooting where longer framed bows are used.
The original designs for stabilizers involved a set length and weight for each model that would counteract the noise and vibration of the bow. The stabilizer would work well enough after it had been properly attached to the riser of the bow.
In more recent times there has been a more prevalent move towards tunable stabilizers that allow the shooter to adjust the setup so that the bow is perfectly tuned. There is nothing a hunter likes more than the feeling of being in control of the performance of his bow and the new breed of stabilizers such as those from KTech and Stokerized gives them that control.
Adding one of these highly adjustable stabilizers to the rig will allow the archer to fine tune their bow to further improve accuracy and performance. For this reason it is more likely that the experienced shooter is going to get the most benefit from using them.
