Landon Miller: At the machine shop in my school one of the projects you make is a
stabilizer and one thing that is a great idea is fill them with cut of
bouncy balls. they absorb almost all vibrations and theyre super cheap
weedsnager: Where did you buy the black rings?
Tubes6v6: At this price point we could all make several stabilizers at different
lengths to see which one works best. I'm still messing with my own for my
Samick Sage to try & get it to thrust forward a bit more upon release. I'm
using automotive sticky wheel weights at the end to get the length & weight
LmNutZ: I found out some stabilizers go for about 300bucks! Crazy and not worth it
imo. This is an idea I've had for some time.
RebelnFord: Sweet i did the same thing but put a weight in the end. Then welded a bolt
and a rounded off nut to the end to connect to my bow. And welded 2 metal
rigs on the oppisite end so it looks like a doinker but i painted mine
olive drab and a lighter green. Looks like a good camo
Tony Ashworth: Did you use any adhesive to secure the end caps or are they just a tight
muleywatcher: Nice, Ive always wondered why in the hell would some of these guys pay
300.00 for a stabilizer that you know doinker made for 2.00
undertheshadowhc: not really sure if i could do anything to limit the wobble of the PVC. my
groups are pretty much the same with the steel as well as with the PVC, and
to be honest, i like the way my PVC one turned out and i actually use the
PVC one. the wobble only happens for a second on the draw and again after
the arrow has completely left the bow. the wobble doesn't seem to have much
of an affect.
epiphany: Whats the purpose of the packing popcorn?
seandan68: use spray foam instead
Tim Davis: Hay my name is Tim Davis i live in pittsburg,texas i want to builted me a
stabilizer for my hunting bow but i do not want it that long how can i do
sanddunejunky: very nice video. The stabilizer is badass also, im gonna go make one now
Riceinabox1: whats the black circles u put on the end of the stabilizer?
shamut: it could be fully with sand?
wesiso: Went and bought everything today and was amazed that it only cost me $14.
I'll be putting it together tomorrow. I really appreciate you taking the
time to make this step by step vid. Saw your thread in AT as well haha. BTW
you kinda sound like Brady Ellison @ 3:12 o.o
Evan Doyon: really nice it came out very nice and professional looking I like it. good
job and great video!
Andre van Tonder: Great video ... could just have cut out 98% of the bit you're stuffing the
tube ;-) I suppose one could add another bolt on the other end for
attaching additional weights ...
undertheshadowhc: a cardboard box, and some foam i got from work and some carpet without that
hard backing. i also made one with a box filled with phone books with the
page opening facing the front of the target.
Jeffrey Wong: Thanks for posting the vid. I really like your DIY stab, the cost & that it
doesn't take expensive tools (I'm sure a $5 hacksaw would work if I didn't
have a Dremel). Could you have done something with PVC that might have
reduced the wobble? Why do you think the paint extension handle worked
better than PVC [rigidity of steel, weight of steel or what]? Did the PVC
stabilizer help you with your groups the way this steel stabilizer does?
daniel van Bommel: where would you buy packing popcorn?
Tilen Moder: great diy project :) what is your target made of?
Augustin MEIGNAN: hi, really great project, i've done the same but i can't find this kind of
bolt could you give me the bolt reference for France cause this is not the
same measurement system that would be great Thank
undertheshadowhc: @AndrevanTonder67 yeah, i know. but i did it all from my iphone and leaving
it in there was much easier.
undertheshadowhc: any post office or ups or fed ex office should have it
Living Social: I got a groupon from Miami and almost got tricked. The description was way off for that the deal they were offering. I found groupon reviews that several people had the same issue. Luckily Groupon honor a refund, but my time was wasted.
