9. What are stabilisers and what do they do?
Archers use stabilisers to assist with aiming. A 30 inch long rod at the front reduces fine bow hand tremors by dampening any movements. V-bars either side of the bow assist with vertical stability and overall balance, counteracting the front-heaviness of the long rod. Stabilisers increases the overall weight of the bow, but improves the accuracy of aiming at long distances.
