    Default DIY bow accessories

    I've made the arrow rest, the red dot sight mounting system, the stabilizer, the string whiskers and the sling for this bow.

    The red dot sight works quite well on short distances (i use this bow only for backyard shooting - 15 yards max). I've made the mounting system about 3 years ago, influenced by the Oneida videos in YouTube. The good thing is that you don't need a peep, shoot with both eyes open and always use the right form, the bad is that you add weight and have only one position (on shorter distances i don't even turn on the red dot and shoot almost instinctively).

    are those cane tips on your stabilizer stacked on top of one another?

    yes they are. I like the way it looks. I've considered trying it.

    they are cheap, should be under 10 for a few of them.
