Q: What's the difference between the Hybrid Pro™️ and the Element X™️?
A: The Hybrid Pro and the Element X offer similar performance in hunting length stabilizers. They both damp bow energy / vibration very well and also enhance bow accuracy better than other products on the market. The biggest difference between the two models is that the Element X has a Titanium Alloy main body portion and the Hybrid Pro has an ultra high modulus Carbon Fiber main body portion. Both Bowhunting models DO contain our proprietary formula Vortex damping material.
The Hybrid Pro is a bit lighter in base weight than the Element X and thus is more suited to having higher amounts of additional end weight placed on it.
Q: Why do you use titanium alloy to build your stabilizers, string stops, QDs and other products?
A: When deployed correctly the physical properties of Titanium offer certain CLEAR ADVANTAGES over carbon fiber, aluminum, plastic and rubber for bow stabilization, noise suppression and vibration damping purposes.
The natural resonant frequencies of Titanium allows it to more effectively move bow energy out away from the bow and more rapidly dissipate shot noise downrange.
We've also put the amazing noise control and vibration deadening abilities of Titanium to work in our string stops making them the quietest DOWNRANGE and most shock free on the market.
THE TAP PHILOSOPHY IS PERFORMANCE FIRST AND WE DO NOT COMPROMISE ON MATERIALS!
Q: Which TAP™ stabilizer is best for the archer that is primarily focused on bowhunting and not 3D or competition?
A: The answer to question is that there isn't one choice that is clearly the best for every archer! The decision boils down to several factors such as: How performance and tuning focused the archer is, the average and maximum distance of the archer's in-the-field shots, how aggressive their bow's cam system is, the brace height of their bow ...and those are just a few of the considerations.
Generally speaking though most of our bowhunting customers find that an 8"-10" Hybrid Pro" or 8"-10" Element X™ will suit their needs quite well. For recommendations specific to YOUR bow's set up contact us for more information.
Q: Which TAP stabilizer is best for the archer that is primarily focused on 3D or competition archery?
A: This one is easy to answer! -- The Hybrid Pro™ is without a doubt the superior choice for the target/competition focused archer. We've designed all aspects of The Hybrid Pro™ to maximize the archer's potential to land more of their arrows in the X ring. Time and time again competitive archers are finding that The Hybrid Pro™ stabilizers provide their bows exceptional bow control and IMPROVED scores ... and in the end, isn't that what it's all about?!
And now that we've launched the Hybrid Pro™ Bowhunting edition this model can offer the BEST OF BOTH WORLDS to the serious archer.
Q: What is Vortex™?
A: That's the proprietary name for the vibration KILLING material we produce for use in our hunting stabilizers. We don't disclose the ingredients but it's suffice to say that NO OTHER COMPANY in the archery industry uses this formula and it performs superbly working in unison with the titanium alloy to provide your bow a smooth, deadened and vibration free shot!
