Shrewd has these side rods and V-Bar setup that run straight back. They look cool, but do they provide the side-to-side stabilization of outward protruding rods? It would appear to me (Physics Wise) to get the same leverage from center, a great deal more weight must be added for the same effect, true? Now, I can see them working quite nicely to balance front-to-back with less weight, but the side-to-side looks questionable.

Thoughts? Opinions?

I have an opportunity to buy a set, V-Bar weights and all, for a fair price if they work.

Remember when I said you would end up spending lots of money for the sake of experimentation? :lol:

It's all about finding what works on your bow for your shooting style. Naturally, there some "constants" and you can eliminate some items, as you have, just thinking logically. You're bow is a C3... They tend to be top heavy. As a result, I would think there are better choices for your bow as your analysis is pretty spot on. This is, of course, unless you want to add more weight to the bow. (Some folks do!)

Thought so. Thanks Jer.

Just the other night I was telling Marilyn that a bargain on a shirt that you never wear is not a bargain. She took it back. :)
