Looking for some recommendations. For a tresstand bow. There are so many options I just get lost when trying to pick out a back bar and mounting system. Bowtech Solution SS if that matters for recommendations.

I'm running an 8" Bee Stinger on two of my bows, a Realm and an Evoke31, to help reduce the bow wiggle when I hit the back wall.
No habla treestand bow, but hunting with the stab on the bow from a saddle works well. Never had an interference issue.

I have TAP stabilizers. Spendy but nice. Running an 8” side and front stab with their sidebar mount and front QD mount. I had spider stabilizers too, which were a little easier on the wallet and also nice. I’ve also owned bee stinger which were also totally fine.

Since I run longer ATA bows I like a side stab to keep them vertical when I draw and not have to fight the bubble.

I have a front and sidebar stabilizer from Titanium Archery Products. Love my stabs! Really seems to reduce my pin float, my bubble is pretty much automatic, and it really makes my bow dead in hand through the shot. If you check out his website or Instagram, you’ll find the contact info. Incidentally, the phone number is the owner and sole worker of the company. His name’s Sam and he’s very helpful insofar as recommending what stabilizers in what lengths, etc.. Something worth considering.

Happy to help!

I'm only asking because you specified it was a treestand (deer killing) bow, you're a smart cookie not prone to being upsold accessories, and I wanted to see what problem you were looking to solve with your deer killing setup.
LOL, just giving you a hard time. Bow is a little shorter than my usual rig, would just like to feel a little more balanced at draw. I might not even like it but want to give it a shot. I usually don't use any sort of stabilizer at all. Thinking I'd try just a backbar as I think that is where I need the weight for the balance.

Gotcha. If it's just a balance thing, I'd recommend A.) getting over it ;), or B.) something cheap and simple and adjustable.


Anything that lets you swing the weight left/right and back/forwards to fine tune it should work fine. Doesn't need fancy adjustments or markers. I've shot a whole aisle of stabilizers and none of them were better than the other. It's all about where and how much mass they add to the package...and how cool they make you look.

DIY Sportsman did a pretty informative podcast on stabilizers with Sam from TAP. Maybe another resource to check out.

I've always used a stabilizer and I highly recommend them. I may go to a backbar next year but I truly like how it helps deaden sound and helps balance my bow a little better. The best benefit is the pin hold. Many factors play into this including bow fit and form; and although it is an extra expense and certainly adds weight to your overall setup, I believe the benefits outweigh the costs for me. Plus, they look cool man!!! Yoouu look maarvelous!!!

I ended up finding the newer version of this for less money. I’ll report back once I tinker with it a little.

This is on my Christmas list (Wife's Amazon's list). A few weeks ago they had a sale for $100 and I wish I nagged the wife to jump on it. But I think they is basically everything you would want for a tree stand setup.

I run my side bar low on the riser. It takes less weight to add the balance bring further from the grip.
