Here's a link to a YouTube video of my homemade stabilizer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRDNZWSKS6A It's easy to make, cheap and works well.

Innovative and if it works so much the better.

By the way, I watched the video. You need to work on that grip. Get it more relaxed and quit grabbing the bow.

Agree, too tight on the grip. You need relax it before drawing and trust the wrist sling more, which is it homemade too? Good stuff Alex! Like to see the homemade gear. :)

Thanks for the replies, guys! I'll try to improve my gripe (if that's the right word) :) I haven't shot a compound for over half an year and my form and shooting style are bad i guess. These are the risks when you shoot 4-5 types of bows. Destroyer, i'm glad you like the homemade stuff - with the lack of many accessories here and their huge prices when available, i have to make some of my gear. Besides, i like making something with my hands ... and head :D

:D Exactly! I've tried it with 6 of them today on my recurve bow, but with 3 it works better. Total weight of the stabilizer - 1#
