BEE STINGER STABILIZERS
Stabilizers are continually gaining traction as an essential component for archery set-ups. Their name alone implies their ultimate purpose, stabilization.
The act of drawing, aiming, releasing your bow all require a tremendous amount of muscle coordination and balance. Proper grip, stance, posture, anchoring etc. will all assist in a balanced, stable shooting platform. A Bee Stinger stabilization system will help you hold aim point, balance left-right sway and increase your accuracy. It also reduces vibration, hand shock and makes your bow quieter.
Zac Griffith uses a 10″ Sport Hunter Xtreme stabilizer for the front of the bow. He prefers a longer front bar because it helps offset the rear tension produced by holding full draw. Upon release, the bow will naturally fall down and away from the body ensuring a proper deployment of the arrow.
Zac also incorporates a rear stabilizer into his set-up. This is a 6″ Sport Hunter Xtreme. The purpose of a back-bar or side-bar is to offset the weight of the quiver and arrows mounted to the outside of the bow. Zac’s loaded Tight Spot quiver weighs about 15.5 oz. This weight will pull the bow to the outside and require level correction through grip and canting of the wrist and forearm. The side-bar offsets and minimizes that imbalance.
Bee Stinger sells the exact set-up in a kit.
A stabilizer set up will not only help your accuracy as you’re enabled to relax your front grip and make less corrections but it will help your confidence knowing those pins move less! Tournament archers have used stabilization systems for decades. It’s about time hunters got with the program!
