Thread: Which way to balance a deflex riser

    Which way to balance a deflex riser

    Hi all I have just got a new pse supra focus which has a deflex riser but I'm struggling with getting it to settle tried more weight on the front and using a side bar at the back and also tried v bars at the back the closest I can get is by really loading the weight at the back which feels strange? Anyone else have this issue?'

    Not sure if this helps. Just assume there are no Supra Focus owners present here.

    I think weight distribution and balance is more of an individual issue, and less related to a specific bow.
    I don't see a way around testing. And yes, I have about half a dozen unused stabilizers laying around at home ...

    Take all the weights off... it will be much easier to hold up. It won't topple forward in an unsightly manner when you loose either.

    Sometimes posts get missed. That's forums for you.
    You could have a read of this article... http://www.bow-international.com/fea...stabilisation/

    and a very good article by Liam grimwood ... http://www.bow-international.com/rev...ers-made-easy/

    and another.... http://www.archerylearningcenter.com/blog/stabilizers

    but as Lammas said it is really personal to the archer. Some want forward weighted bows, some want neutral weighted bows. Most compounds use one side rod but for a neutral weighted bow that's side rod is going to require 3 - 4x the weight than that on the long rod. A longer side rod, pointing almost straight back will reduce the need for so much weight.
    An archers only opponent is his mind.

    BTW, I'm shooting a PSE Ferocity (a 31" hunting bow), with the short FX4 stabilizer that came with the RTS kit.
    My greatest problem, as I discovered the last weeks, was bad form (improper grip and hand position, no backtension / follow-through, inconsistant stance).
    With proper attention to form, the bow just needs to be balanced for me.
