    No, it is just this one.

    Got my stabilizer done today. I just need to improve it a bit as i use the original steel caps on the carbon rods now and i want to replace them with rubber ones. You will see what i mean soon.

    OK, I finally got my camera working and here are some pics. Maybe not the best but we'll see what they look like. It's a fairly simple machining job if you have or have access to a lathe. Again this is an aluminum rod with threads machined for the riser, and drilled and tapped at the other end for the hex head bolt. Notice the stainless steel washers on each side of the rubber weight.

    Thanks for posting the pictures, Barry! The stabilizer looks great. I tought there are rubber "pucks" all over the rod. I may try this design too.

    Search for muntlar.

    I have 3 general archery vids, one older vid about Martin cams and a bowhunting vid online. I plan to do a video about my different stabilization systems and one about shooting the ShadowCat.

    Around August.

    I found my rubber caps this morning and finished my design. Now i just need to remove some rubber from a limbsaver i have to put it onto the tip of the rod.

    Yesterday i tried to make some of those bowjax myself. Maybe you known those rubber thingies to put on your stabilizer made by them? I made them out of an old Limbsaver i had. I made my ShadowCat absolutly vibration free. I am quite 'shocked'. Post will come next week. If you remember me.

    Oh, i do and will, just will be off-line till Tuesday. I know the bowjax, but can't understand how you can made it from limbsaver. Well, i'll see it the next week. I wonder can you make them from old tyre? By the way in YouTube there's quite funny quarrel between Limbsaver and Bowjax, each saying the competition's products are useless crap

    Well, my stabilizer is ready. Unfortunately i can't post pictures now. I've changed the design. Instead of hockey pucks or rubber wheels i used my favourite bow accessory - the rubber tips for cane (the same on my homemade STS) A friend of my grandfather's made on a lathe a 6mm 1 inch deep threaded hole in a cheap Perfect Line stabilizer, i've put a 6mm threaded rod in it with 3 rubber tips one after another, tightened with a nut and washer. Total lenght is 8 1/2" and weight is about a pound or a little less. Haven't tested it with my MOAB, but it does amazing job with my take-down recurve bow. Usually after a shot the tips of the limbs keep vibrating 1-2 seconds even when there's the Perfect Line 3" stabilizer, but with the new homemade one there's no vibration! Soon i'll put it on the MOAB and see how it'll perform. The best is that i can try different configurations - 8", 12" or 2 feet, i just need some more rubber tips If anybody's interested i'll upload pictures as soon as possible and make a little YouTube video.
