Pics?? I like to keep you and the others in suspense.... LOL I have a few things left to do to it, and one or two more coats of paint.

I'll give a little hint as to what it looks like:

I'll be posting pictures soon, and I will probably make another stabilizer and post pictures of the building steps.

vented stab??? wohho...

sure looks good....

i have tried drilling hole for my aluminum stab, no luck to get it line up straight.
Yet to try again.

Waiting for your tutorial session on the hole drilling, very interested to learn, so i can DIY again.

Keep it posted with picture.

Final length is about 21". I haven't checked the final weight yet.

A.S., you'll have to give us a full tutatorial on how you built this. Please .... step by step instructions complete with pics. What did you use in the interior and how well is it performing?

Longer than I want a stabilizer but I am still curious. Maybe if I set up a bow for taget only.

I'll be making another one, so I'll post up a tutorial.;) You can make it any length that you want. If you don't want one that long, you could make one about 6" or so. I actually have nothing on the inside, and it does great. I feel about nothing at the shot.

I gathered ideas from different sources along with my own ideas and this is what I came up with.

The bolt in the end is for weight, and it has a nut and a locking washer to secure it.

Thanks.

After I post my tutorial you can then follow it and make one for about $10 including paint. The paint I used was Krylon Fusion spraypaint, and I believe it costs $4.36 at Walmart. With it you don't need any primer or sanding.:cool:

Nice looking job SA. I would recommend a light sanding (220 grit) with the Fusion spray though. It'll make it bond ALOT better. That stab looks really nice, sounds like it works very well, and it's a heck of alot cheaper than the stabs I had made for it. lol

Thanks guys. I will attempt to get a tutorial up. Thanks EH for the tip, I'll do that next time.

I was shooting with it on my Jaguar today, and it definitely improved my shooting. The Jaguar has a good kick to it at the shot, so a long, heavier stabilizer is a major improvement.

Is the weight of the bolt alone enough to give you performance that you are wanting?

Yes it does. The weight also comes from the nut and locking washer as well. I can add and remove weights if I want to experiment.

Whats the total weight
My long one weighs 8.25 oz. I put that one on my Jaguar. My new one (the one in the tutorial, I'll post pics) weighs 4.something oz. I'll weigh it again later and post the exact weight.
