Bernie has some great products!

UTG, I recommend you buddy up with someone that will let you try their bars and weights for a shooting session to get a feel for how you like the bow. This might help you avoid some of the trial and error mistakes that cost you money that I've been through.

It takes some cash to balance a bow properly! On my current set-up I am running the following:

B-Stinger Premier 33" Bar $225.00
B-Stinger Premier 15" Back Bar $79.00
B-Stinger stack weights $22.99 x7 and need more.
B-Stinger 10 degree down QD $24.99
Bernie's Side Bar Knuckle $89.00

That's just a hair under $600.00 just for stabilizer and accessories. When you get ready PM me I may be able to save you some money on these items.

Thanks DC

Yeah that's where AT classifieds will come in handy. I was looking at the $120 B Stinger front bar as an option.

Question:

What features does a mid to high end stab offer that is lacking in a low end stab?

Just looked it up in my catalog. Pricing is reasonable.

Many of the high end products, like Bernie's, have bars that are extremely light so that the weight is more distributed to the end of the bars, where it needs to be with added weight, compared to distributed throughout the entire bar. My front bar, 30" and back bar 14", are around 3.5oz of weight combined.

Yeah when I looked at the Bernie's specs they were considerably lighter than other stabs.

Thanks for the info.

Weights are expensive for sure. All you really need is the correct size bolt to fit the threads of your stabilizer...and put your own weights on it. I stole this from a guy at the ASA shoots. He had sockets on his bow. I started weighing sockets and, that's the better route IMO.

A 3/4 inch socket weighs 2.22 ounces.

A 3/4 inch socket costs $3.

2 ounces of B-Stinger weights = around $20.

Of course, bigger sockets = more weight but still the same general price for each. Weight is weight IMO. I don't have a 1 inch socket that I can weigh right now but I imagine it would be around 3 oz or so.

That's not a bad idea. Any issues stacking sockets?

The guy I saw at the ASA had several sockets stacked on his rig. So I guess not. The only issue I've ran into, is needing a longer bolt to hold all of the sockets I'm putting on there \:\) If nothing else, it would let you get an idea of how much weight you need to get your setup where you want it. Then you could order exactly what you need in weights, if you decide the sockets look tacky. I've got a buddy that went head over heels in buying this expensive stuff last year. He had over $400 in his B-Stinger rig and never even went to an ASA shoot. He didn't even shoot the state shoot. He shot a few local shoots with it and that was it.

Anyone seen or got any feedback on Dead Center Archery Dead Level stabilizer system? I'm looking for a front bar/side bar combo that will work hunting and 3D.

I have the Dead Level Hunter from Dead Center Archery on my Carbon Matrix and really like it. This picture doesn't show the other side of the bracket and 2 quick disconnects. Talk nice to me and I might shoot some pics of the other side! Great company too deal with too!
