Hit me, up if you wanna talk RamRods, I'm one of their ProStaff, so I have loads of details on the range of rodsHi all
I'm planning to upgrade my stabilisers as my arms are getting stronger. I don't know which stabilisers I'm going to look for. Conquest, Ramrod, Axcel or Shibuya? I'm just looking for stiffness and extra weights. Which stabilisers do you have and why?
They must be really packing it in to get £800 worth of pixie dust in those narrow tubes!I'm constantly amazed just how much manufacturers think they can charge for a carbon tube with two metal end caps. Seriously, £800 for a longrod and two side rods! Oh almost forgot £50 each for tungsten 4oz weights. But people will buy them so who am I to judge
I don't know how many times Butch Johnson went to the Olympics and WCs but it was quite a few occasions and he shot only with a long rod. Taking a piece by piece approach gives the athlete a chance to feel what those parts actual do for the stability of his/her shot, which is, I think, more important that the "we know what is good for you, do this approach." This is along the lines of only make one change at a time, so that any effect has a clear cause.The problem with using just a long rod and and slowly increasing the weight is that the whole balance of the bow will change when you put the V bar and twins on the bow. Better to start with a complete set up with light weights to start. Normally I would not recommend E Bay but as carbon stabs are usually robust so the risk or buying some thing damaged is much less.
Not entirely true. He shot a longrod and a backweight. A fairly large and heavy backweight. So it gives a similar forward/back balance just without the sticky out bits at the sides.I don't know how many times Butch Johnson went to the Olympics and WCs but it was quite a few occasions and he shot only with a long rod.
