How does the Beiter V-BOX system work?
The various stabilizers on the market have different rigidities. Archers may find rods too stiff, and sometimes also too weak. With a multifunctional and customizable dampening system, such as the Beiter V-BOX, each stabilizer can be adapted to the respective shooters needs. This customization is achieved with the membranes and their different degrees of stiffness, and also through the use of the available weights and spacers. This combination can affect not only the weight distribution, but by their inertia, in combination with the Beiter V-BOX, the entire damping behaviour.
Where should, or can, the weight be attached?
Weights can be attached in front of and behind the Beiter V-BOX. An optimal set up will involve placing weights both sides of the V-BOX. #5 and #7 membranes can support max. 10 oz in front of the V-Box. Attention: the #1 membrane supports max. 5 oz. The weight of the BeiterV-BOX unit is 1.75 oz – 49grams). As an example at a total weight of 16 ounces, the weight could be distributed like this: 2 x 3 oz weights and 1 x 1 oz weight in front of the V-Box and 3x 3 oz weights behind. If you want to shoot a less stabilizer weight, the distribution of the weights can be adjusted by using the spacers. Due to the lever effect, shifting the weights forward on the screw changes weight distribution and dampening, achieving the desired balance with less weight than usual! Thanks to the combination of weights, washers and membranes in 4 different stiffnesses, innumerable different settings and options are possible.
IMPORTANT: Do not choose a too soft a membrane. If you see that the weight is bending the Beiter V-BOX, then use a harder membrane or less weight!
It is important to use the maximum weight setup only with the two hardest membranes (#5 and #7). The Compensation Spacer is not only useful for shifting weight: thanks to the Spacers low weight, you can use it as placeholder on the threads. The various colours available can be combined to individually customize your Beiter V-BOX System and stabilisation! It is important to use the base plate, which is not only an optical transition between the V-BOX and the stabilizer system, but provides an extremely stable connection between components. The V-BOX has a diameter of 32mm. Base Plates are available in 30 to 26mm, 30 to 23mm and 30 to 20mm sizes.
