Default Which stabilizer for hunting & 3d?

Are any of you using the same stabilizer for hunting and 3D? I' m leaning heavily toward the stealth hunter. Any other suggestions?

VAboy, it will depend on your bow and how you like it balanced. I prefer my bow to remain neutral at the shot. A bow that tips forward too quickly causes poor followthrough, for me. I have a 10 oz, 7 1/2" Isolator on my P38 and a 4 oz, 2" Quiet Tune on my Pat DC. These give me the balance and weight I want on the individual bows.

I just got a NAP Shockblocker. It really seems to dampen any vibration.

I' m one of those who still hasn' t forgiven the IBO for droping the 12" rule. Since they did that, I think that the short stab is a thing of the past. I mean you can shoot one for sure, but I think you are probably loosing an advantage. I moved to a 24" set-up last year, and that is pretty short by the new rules, also you can rest your bow on it.

What you can do is get stabs that have all the same bits and pieces, I have a Shrewd carbon devide stab, and an older X-ring carbon. All the little weights and so forth are the same, and there is some compatability as to parts and feel. Tey are also the rigs I would prefer to shoot anyway.

For 3-D & target a longer 24" - 30" inch model is what I would choose. For hunting a 10" stabilizer is a good length on my hunting bows.

I tend to agree with what some of the others posted. For 3D I would want all of the edge that I could get so longer would be better. For hunting I would prefer something shorter....6-7 inches and under. Considering I use 3D for hunting practice the 6-7 inch stabilizer would be my choice. I like the Sims Enhancer 2000 coupled with the NAP Shockblocker 500 combination...but I am experimenting with others.
