Stabilizers - for more precision

The extra weight provided by stabilizers helps you to be more accurate - provided you find the right versions for your bow. You can find various models from front stabilizers and side stabilizers to hunting stabilizers and accessories at BogenSportWelt. Achieve maximum accuracy and consistency: discover our range of stabilizers now! If you have any questions, you can contact us at any time.

What does a stabilizer do?

You already know how your bow works: when you release the string after the draw, the energy stored in the limbs is suddenly released. It is transferred to the arrow via the string. The limbs and string return to their starting positions. At the same time, the excess force reaches your hand and arm via the middle section. These vibrations can lead to you not holding your arm completely still and distorting it, which affects the direction of the arrow's flight. Your accuracy suffers the more your bow swings when you shoot. And all this happens in the blink of an eye! Just 15 milliseconds pass at this moment.

Stabilizers counteract the unsteady swing of the bow, also known as hand shock. Put simply, the extra weight dampens the vibrations - because more weight means more inertia, a simple law of physics. So in principle, you benefit if your bow is heavier. However, it must not have too much weight. You should be able to maintain a steady stance at all times without negatively influencing the shot due to any shaking.

At the same time, stabilizers ensure that the torque is shifted. If the arrow is released from the string, the bow also rotates a little - which also influences the trajectory. If you attach a stabilizer, the bow is more likely to fall forward into the desired falling position. Another factor that improves your shot pattern.

The more power your bow has, the more it reacts to the shot.

In summary, these are the tasks of stabilizers

  • shift the rotational movement forwards
  • dampen vibrations of the bow
  • ensure more precision

Good to know: Beginners should do without stabilizers. If you have just started archery, you first need to learn the basic techniques and a clean, correct stance. You usually start with a lower draw weight anyway - which means that your bow swings less when you release the arrow. If you are experienced and want to increase your precision, stabilizers can help you get there!

Fact check: the advantages and disadvantages of stabilizers

Is a stabilizer or a stabilizer system suitable for you? Take a look at the table to find out whether it's worth upgrading in your situation!


  • the bow becomes heavier, which reduces the bow movements when shooting
  • Increase your hit rate
  • Professionals with good technique improve their shot pattern further×not suitable for beginners


  • Not suitable for beginners
  • require a good feel for how your bow behaves when shooting
  • cannot be attached to every bow

Mono, side, V-bar? Different shapes briefly explained

Stabilizers come in a wide variety of shapes. In Olympic archery, you may have already noticed the bars protruding forwards on the bows used. They are often supplemented by two shorter ones that protrude laterally to the rear in a V-shape. You can obtain front or monostabilizers from us individually or as part of a system together with side stabilizers. The V-bar, on the other hand, is necessary for mounting, while extenders extend your stabilizers and give them more weight.

  • Mono or front stabilizer: There is usually an additional weight at the end of the forward-projecting bar. You can individually adjust how long and heavy it should be. The higher your pull weight, the longer we recommend stabilizers.
  • Side stabilizers: They point backwards like a V and complement your monostable. They also cushion the recoil when shooting and keep your bow steadier.
  • V-bar: This is used to attach the front and side stabilizers. Make sure you find out which model your bow supports. If in doubt, we can help you - just give us a call or write to us and we'll find the right options for you in no time at all!
  • Damper: You can also find dampers among our stabilizer accessories. You can attach one of these between the monostabilizer and the weight. It also absorbs the excess residual energy.
  • Hunting stabilizer: If you regularly ride off-road or on the 3D course, you know how limited space can be there. A long stabilizer system can be a hindrance. That's why there are special short models for the 3D area (hunting). They are much thicker than the usual front stabilizers.

How do I find the perfect stabilizer system for me and my bow?

Test, test, test! The best thing to do is to drop by our shooting range, where we will advise you - from archery professional to archery professional. If that's not possible for you, try it out slowly. It's better to invest in stabilizers that you can adjust right from the start. Because depending on what else you change on your bow, your stabilizer will also have to move with you and may need to be longer or shorter, lighter or heavier. Simply attaching a sight can already cause a weight shift that you can only compensate for with an adjustable stabilizer.

As a basic rule you can remember: Bows with a light draw weight, i.e. under 30 lbs, require shorter stabilizers. Powerhouses from 30 lbs upwards are better equipped with long models!

When you hold your bow with the stabilizer in the anchor, it should feel calm and balanced. If it pulls in any direction, then you need to try again. If it is too heavy, you will soon notice. You can of course also check your hit pattern! If the stabilizers are correctly adjusted to you and your bow, you should notice a significant improvement.

Why do I need a stabilizer?

A stabilizer stabilizes your bow by absorbing excess energy, damping vibrations and shifting the torque forwards. Stabilizers therefore have a decisive advantage: they ensure greater precision and therefore improve your shot pattern. If you are already familiar with archery, stabilizers will help you shoot even better!

What are monostabilizers?

With mono or front stabilizers, there is usually an additional weight at the end of the rod that protrudes forwards. How long and how heavy it should be can be individually adjusted. Generally, longer stabilizers are recommended for high tensile weights.

What are side stabilizers?

Side stabilizers point backwards like a V and complement your monostable. They also cushion the recoil when firing and keep your bow steadier.

What are a V-bar and an extender?

With a V-bar, you attach a front and side stabilizer. An extender is attached directly to the bow to place the V-bar at a greater distance from the center section. The V-bar or a monostabilizer can then be attached to the extender.

What length should a stabilizer have?

You can use your height as a rough guide to get an initial idea. Up to 1.70 meters, choose monostables between 26 and 28 inches. Between 1.70 and 1.80 meters, we recommend 28- to 30-inch front stabilizers. If you are over 1.80 meters, you should choose stabilizers from 30 inches. However, your draw weight also determines how long the stabilizer should be. The more powerful the bow, the longer it should be. It's best to try out which length is best for you!

Which stabilizer is suitable for compounds?

This depends primarily on which compound bow you shoot and whether it supports stabilizers. We will be happy to advise you on this, just get in touch! Browse through our range of stabilizers and find your perfect helpers for even more precise shooting!

What accessories do I need for my stabilizer?

Optionally, it is worth purchasing accessories for your stabilizer bar, such as additional weights. Damper or dampers can also be found. These are fitted between the monostabilizer and the weight and also absorb excess energy.
