    Smile New Moab

    Had a chance to shoot a new '08 Moab today. Very nice shooting bow. Very slight vibration in the grip at the shot, but no recoil or handshock! I had been trying to decide between this bow and several of the "high-end" models for much more money. After shooting the Moab, I can see no reason to spend twice as much for the same performance.

    Yup, I hope to have it by the end of the month. After shooting it I can't find a good reason not to.

    Good stabilizer should take care of that buzz in the grip. Good luck to ya.
    Although I have a FireCat on order I may end up with a Moab as hunting season approaches. First I have to sell about four bows and drawers full of other accumulated stuff.

    I'll try the stabilizer. I have a small S-Coil on my current Reflex that I plan on keeping and installing on the Moab when I get it. I'll let you all know when I've got the new one in my hands! Just waiting for the old IRS refund!!

    For the stabilizer, I would try something that has a little more weight a little farther out.

    S-coil can only be termed a stabilizer in the crudest of terms. A true stabilizer is supposed to balance a bow primarily, and in doing so will take care of handshock. A dinky little 6" piece of rubber isn't designed for this.

    Once in a blue moon you might find a bow that an s-coil will balance properly, but the other 99% need something different. If you can, try a bunch. If you can't do this, I would reccommend something from sims or doinker that is adjustable in weight and length.

    Thanks for all the helpful info. I'm really looking forward to getting the bow set up.
