Balance Your Bow

Why are so many guys shooting long stabilizers? Further more why are they hanging a long bar off the back of their bow like a target archer. Slowly guys are learning if you want to gain “hyper accuracy” with your shooting, you have to practice for higher accuracy. That starts with properly balancing your bow. Your bow is balanced form the factory right? Wrong. When you get your bow you typically add 11-13 ounces in accessories to the sight and rest side of the bow, not to mention a quiver full of arrows potentially. So naturally if your a right handed shooter your bow will tilt right. How do you remedy this? Well you push back with your hands and fingers (aka grip) correct? Wrong. Now you are torquing the bow… which can cause a mound of issues not to mention missed marks.

How do top archers in the hunting and target worlds remedy this? Add a front stabilizer to stop pin float up or down, add a back bar to offset the bows accessories you’ve added. Now you’ll hold the bow correctly, without torque, and achieve hyper accuracy…with practice.
