If you are willing to spend the money on a quality stabilizer then look no further than the Axion SSG Silencer Stabilizer. This is a premium product with a stylish modern CNC machined design and it is chock full of Mathews harmonic dampers. It lives up to both the “silencer” and “stabilizer” parts of its name and performs well. The price point may be a bit steep for some, but it’s worth the investment for a stabilizer that will legitimately bring stability to each shot.
There are two length and weight varieties available of the SSG stabilizer, as well as multiple popular camo patterns. The 4 inch SSG weighs a modest 6 ounces and will be a great fit for hunting bows that need to be maneuverable and compact.
This one includes three of the Mathews lite harmonic dampers within the hollow body. The longer option is 6 inches and weighs a hearty 8 ounces. This model comes with four Mathews lite harmonic dampers within the body. These dampers help to eliminate vibration in the limbs and reduce noise when shooting. They are made out of rubber and can be replaced with different color options if desired.
Axion Stabilizer Construction and Design
The design of the stabilizer is CNC machined with a hollow body and various holes in the construction to allow for 80% less wind resistance. This makes it less likely to sway and throw off your shot in windy outdoor conditions. The build is durable, modern, and super sleek. With solid black and various licensed camo patterns to choose from it will match most bows.
Not only does the Axion SSG Silencer Stabilizer have strong aesthetic appeal, but it also does a great job actually stabilizing the bow. It manages to perform well in both dampening vibrations and adding counter weight to the front of the bow for maximum stability and balance. It can be difficult to find a stabilizer that is good looking, durable, and effective at both the primary and secondary functions of being a stabilizer.
Being able to achieve all of these qualities is what makes the SSG shine and stand out among its competitors. The price can be daunting, yet you are getting a quality product that will balance your bow and tighten up your shots.
Final Thoughts on the Axion Stabilizer
The only thing that could make this stabilizer even better is if it had more robust customization options. Fortunately the 6 inch version is 8 ounces, which is enough weight to adequately stabilize a fully equipped compound bow. However, that does not make it a one size fits all solution.
What works for one bow setup may not work as well for another. Being able to add and remove weight would give the archer more control over their setup and find the perfect balance. This lack of customization is the SSG’s only real shortcoming, if it can even be called that. Otherwise it is a stylish and reliable stabilizer that brings both balance and quiet to any bow it adorns.
