Description

Vektor

The Vektor features a taper design, multiple internal damping options and the best combination of stiffness, wind efficiency, and damping that has ever been brought to market.

The Ultra V3 and Matterhorn V2 variants have been a hit with top competitive athletes for years. For 2020 we wanted to combine the Matterhorn stiffness with the Ultras wind efficiency to give archers the best of both worlds while sacrificing nothing.

The Vektor front stabilizer begins at an outer diameter of 0.625” and sleekly transitions down to a 0.5” outer diameter. This allows for more stiffness at the base of the stabilizer where it experiences the most stress, and creates greater wind efficiency at the tip where the stabilizer experiences the highest amount of buffeting and torque from the wind. The Vektor side rods are the same carbon layup as the long rod but feature a 0.5625” to 0.5” taper.

Vektor Standard Features:

-Adaptive Weight System – allows for either 1/4-20 or 5/16-24 thread sizes by swapping out the adapter screw.
-VIBRO-CORE Internal Damping – remove unwanted vibration from your shot.
-Spine – ~90
-Diameter – Long Rod 0.625″ to 0.5″ Taper Side Rod – 0.5625” to 0.5” taper.
-5/16-24 threads on both proximal and distal endcap.
-Aluminum proximal and distal endcaps.
-Flat slots in proximal and distal endcaps for stabilizer tightening with a wide range of common tools.
–Made in the USA | designed and hand-built by the owners

Optional Features:

-Steve Wijler Edition Tungsten Damping Powder – adds 3 oz of tungsten powder to the distal end of the stabilizer to add internal weight and significant vibration reduction (VIBRO-CORE internal damping is still included).

As with all our products, the Vektor works perfectly with both compound and recurve. The recommended weight ranges for the front stabilizer are 1-6 oz for crisp feel, 6-25 oz for ideal feel, 25+ for softer feel. This recommended weight range does not account for dampers or decouplers – mass weight that the stabilizer can handle increases when using dampers between weights or between the stabilizer and the weights. Side rods can handle roughly double the mass weight for similar reactions.

    They are really stable to shoot with and react really great and the shape makes them great for shooting outside in the wind

  2. James Cornford (verified owner)

    With out doubt the best rods on the market , quality products and finish , performance is second to none a total must have for any serious shooter ! Want to be the best use the best , RamRods!!!!!

  3. Brandon Xuereb (verified owner)

    I’ve used them for a few months now and I find they hold great in the wind, along with a solid, crisp reaction on the shot. As someone who likes little to no vibration after the shot, these rods dampen the shot quickly and effectively! In my opinion, the Vektors shoot best with moderate to heavy weight (at least 6oz out front),otherwise they may feel a little too stiff, depending on preference. All in all, these rods are extremely well built and can take whatever you throw at them!

    The Vektor (with Steve Wijler Edition Tungsten Damping Powder) is by far my second favorite stabilizer in my collection and my go to front bar for my compound setup (PSE Supra Focus XL). Aesthetics are in the eye of the beholder, but I dare anyone find anything wrong with the look of the Vektor. People don’t buy for looks, they buy for performance and the Vekto indeed does perform. Due to the internal tungsten weight that I opted for, I’ve been able to decrease my overall stabilizer weight by a few ounces overall and still maintain the same stability and feel. Vibration is nearly non-existent in my setup. Truth be told, even without weight, there’s little to no vibration for me and it performs admirably. The addition of weight only settles things down faster. The only negative is a nit picky one in that I like a 34 front stabilizer and the Vektor has a max length of 33″. To overcome this inch, I’ve added a simple 1″ eye bolt and all is good.

  5. Peter Boukouvalas (verified owner)

    A great performing stabalizer that looks good aswell. Holds well in the wind, perfect for compund. However, anyone looking to shoot these for recurve should look at using these only if you’re gonna run a heavy set up, cause they’re super stiff. I found around 15oz on a 30″ rod did the trick.

  6. Masaya Atsuta (verified owner)

    This stabilizer is best I have ever shot. This product tells me exactly the direction of bow jumping right after I fire an arrow.

  7. Marios Englezos (verified owner)

    When I ordered a 30-inch Vector stabilizer and the K2 12-inch, I was hopeful that they would be good, as I did not get a chance to try them or hold them prior to my purchase but my research gave me the confidence to order them. I was not disappointed! When they arrived, I was pleasantly surprised at how stiff they were, perfect for the weight I run on my compound. My first shoot was smooth no vibration at all to my hand. These rods taper to a half inch front and are great in the wind; I got the Steve Wijler Edition with the Tungsten Damping Powder and the added 3oz of weight in the tip of the rod which helps, as you do not need as much visible weight at the end of your rod. One more thing is they actually look good too.

  8. Jordi.Ricart (verified owner)

    I couldn’t ask for a better set of rods. They are amazingly stiff while still being so thin it cuts through the wind like nothing. With eight ounces up front on a 33” the wind is no longer a factor.

  9. Frank.Lee (verified owner)

    It’s a really good stabiliser for both recurve and compound!

  10. Nguyen.Dragon (verified owner)

    A great stabilizer that can handle my heavy setup for target compound, 24oz on the front rod and 31.5 on the side rod. I have tested 32oz up front and 40oz on the side before and it holds beautifully, I don’t need to use dampeners because the Vectors kills enough vibration already. The rods is smooth to the touch much like your car after washing it and the logo will not fade away. The long rod also works as an excellent back scratcher too

  11. Yohann Sempere (verified owner)

    I needed to change my stabilization setup, and tried to figure out what was the best configuration.
    I shoot a recurve bow with 49.5 pounds and I can say that, from far, the Vektor with Tungstène Vibrocore is just amazing.
    Balance, damping and feeling are exactly what I was looking for. It was very easy to configure with the tungstène weights, and it was ready to go in a few minutes.
    30 and 12 inches, 8 ounces on each extremity gave me the result I needed, a perfectly balanced bow.
    The fact that the black/gold look is so nice makes the whole setup just perfect.
    At this point and after 6 months of intensive use, absolutely no negative point to highlight.
    A must have 😁

  12. Juan Andrès Vargas (verified owner)

    I have been shooting these rods for more than 3 months and from the moment I mounted them on my bow the change was impressive and instantly noticeable.
    What impressed me the most was the sound, it completely changed the sound of the shot and the vibration disappeared.
    The finish is superior to anything I’ve seen on the market, I just wouldn’t trade them for anything.

  13. Patrick Nielsen (verified owner)

    The Vektor is the best set of bars I have ever used throughout my archery career. These bars have great absorption of vibration from the bow and they do not feel too stiff or too weak. With the Steve Wijler Edition Tungsten Damping Powder the bars give me the option to run them without a dampener on the end which also allows me the run more weight in one chunk off the front. But even while using a dampener the bar feels amazing with less vibration elsewhere in my recurve.
    I have been using these bars since March and have not second guessed any bit of running these bars through the entire USAT season.
    Currently on my recurve I use a 30 inch front bar with 7 ounces on the front and two 15 inch back bars with 4 ounces on each side.
    On my compound I use my 30 inch front bar with 10 ounces and on the back bar I use one 15 inch bar with 13 ounces on it.
    These are without a doubt my go to bars for any bow indoor or out!

  14. Antti Vikström (verified owner)

    Have been using these for a year now. Previously used ultra v3 and honestly I feel like there is not much difference between them for me atleast. I really enjoyed shooting ultra v3 but I like the grapics more on these.
    These are reasonably thin and light so you can put all the weights you need to the ends of the stabilizers. Also great when shooting in the wind.
    6/5 would recommend to any archer

  15. Pierce McAdam (verified owner)

    By far the best set of bars i’ve shot. Combining the Steve Wijler dampening with stiffness designed for moderate to heavy weight, a shot reaction like no other is achieved. I shoot 8-10 oz on each bar plus dampeners and internal weights on a recurve. Aiming is never an issue with a diameter ideal for wind resistance while not sacrificing stiffness. Shot reaction is truly unparalleled all but eliminating low frequency vibration and making high frequency feel controlled and directional toward the target. This is my number 1 recommendation for the highest end of competition bars

    I first shot the Vektor (Steve Wijler Edition) of a friend of mine in December 2021 (indoors, 18m), tbh simply out of curiosity, because I felt good with my FUSE blade setup at that time. However, from the very first shot I noticed the Vektor had something, my old FUSE did not have. It felt so crisp and smooth, whereas my FUSE setup was there but almost not noticeable looking at how it felt after executing the shot.

    I’m shooting the Vektor (Steve Wijler Edition) since March now and I’m really really happy with it, especially outdoors in windy conditions, because my grouping somehow got way tighter and more consistent compared to the past years (16 years experience).
    In the beginning I really struggled about how much weight I wanted / had to use to find the sweet spot between soft(er) damping and too heavy rods (for me). So if you have the chance to really test before buying (at a dealer or friend) I personally would recommend that, because mine ended up quite heavy compared to my old FUSE setup (about +500 grams) and it took me a while to adapt to it, because my training volume was not very high at that time.

    Looking at manufacturing quality, packaging etc. there is nothing to complain about, no scratches, everything was and is just how I expected.

    Finally my setup is now as follows (Recurve):
    Hoyt Ion-X 25″, X-Tour Bamboo limbs (long, 40# on hand), Tech-Hro Vbar with 85° degrees side angle and 5° front angle
    front rod: 30″ Vektor with Tungsten Damping Powder with 10oz, Beiter V-Box with second softest rubber damper (rod – 8oz steel weights – V-Box – 2oz steel weights)
    side rods: 15″ Vektor with Tungsten Damping Powder with 12oz
    I also tried the V-Box on the side rods, but I just didn’t feel a difference, in the front it gave me a little softer feel without adding more weight.

    I’ve been using the Vektors for this current year (2022) and it’s been by far my most competitive year. The dampening is absolutely unmatched, every shot feels so clean and the bow reaction is so direct and smooth. My setup as a recurve archer with a long 31″ draw is 33/15/15 with the EDGE v-bar. I genuinely feel that these are the best stabilizers on the market right now, and there’s olympic medals (not mine, yet!) to prove it!

  18. Feel Stinkens (verified owner)

    They are as good as they look! Really good dampening and stable. Love them

  19. Sebastian Koller (verified owner)

    I intentionally bought this stabilizer for my compound but it works so good as well on my recurve with my current setup that you nearly can’t hear anything during and after the shot.
    Setup:
    33″ Mono (Steve Wijler edition) with Doinker A Bomb and 6 Oz
    15″ Side Rod (Steve Wijler edition) with Doinker A Bomb and 4 Oz

  20. Sara Ret (verified owner)

    One of the best stabs I have ever had. I tried both the standard dumping and the Steve Wijler dumping and I liked them both.
    I use them with a pse supra rtx and they make the bow more stable and reduce vibrations.
    Plus the black and gold design make your bow super stylish.

  21. Marianna Chaves (verified owner)

    They are the best stabilizers I have ever used. They allow us to have different shooting sensations depending on the weight configuration we use, without negatively affecting the stability of the bow. Another point is that it allowed me more wind resistance and made my bow very quiet.

  22. jennifer schneider (verified owner)

    I shoot the Steve Wijler edition of the Vektor on my 45lb Altus. The Vektor quieted my bow down and improved the feedback significantly.

  23. Karsten Sprenger (verified owner)

    Still the best choice for me after two years of shooting them. Had the Ultras before – good stabilizer as well but they are a little to weak for my weight setup and favourite type of reaction from the bow.
    The Vector does exactly what I expect: Aiming good because of its massive stiffness and producing a sharp reaction from the shot which is comfortable but gives a good feedback. The combination from the vibrocore and the tungsten powder (who takes the rods without it?! 😀 ) is awesome in its damping capabilities.
    I shoot them in 30″ together with 15″ side rods and it works well on my MK Recurve with 47# and 30″ draw length.

    Compared to other stabilisers on the market I like the quality most. If the bushing of your bow is straight, you can use your Ramrods as a gauge for adjusting the center – they are damn straight.

  24. Marios Englezos (verified owner)

    Awesome stabilizer! choose this when i was looking for a micro diameter front bar for my compound set up and was not disappointed, the contour is sleek and gradual and can hold a lot of weights and the tungsten powder dampening with Vibrocore work! i get almost no vibration other than my feedback. you may find cheaper stabilizers out there but a Ramrod stabilizer is get a great product made by archers for archers and a product you can trust. bottom line i love my stabilizers

  25. Ahmet Arda Yildirim (verified owner)

    I’ve been using the Vektors for most of my competitions types, such as Target, 3D and Hunter Field. Just 5 min adjustment and you can experience the absolutely unmatched silence shot, a clean mercedes on the paper tuning for each angle and the butter smooth (as we say in Turkish) dampening for the bow.
    Only negative side, you will be grouping so much that your wallet will be empty soon enough because of keep buying arrows, pin nocks and vanes.

  26. Javier Rojas (verified owner)

    Consistent with the quality you can expect from Ramrods products, this stabilizer is almost guaranteed to meet every expectation. They are real sturdy, make up for a clean shot and perform beautifully in the wind. The shot feel becomes real solid, and at least my bow reacted going into a deeper sound when shooting.
    Vibration is reduced even when comparing with other top of the line stabilizers, though I personally liked the shot better with dampers too. Really the only thing to consider is that they are quite stiff. If you’re using any weight setup with less than 5 ounces per stabilizer, I would recommend using the Ultra model instead.

  27. Martin Vanek (verified owner)

    Switched to those from Matterhorn V2. I was little afraid about stiffness at start – I am running ~ 20-25oz in front stabilizer. But I was surprised by the stability of the aiming, The rods also made better the feedback after the shot. I can recommend them.

  28. Eleanor Rodriguez (verified owner)

    I’m a female archer currently shooting a 42lbs recurve bow and decided to get the Vektor Steve Wijler edition 30″ front stabilizer with 13.5 V-bars. I like my bow to pop out of my hand and have a clean sound and feel coming out of my hand (aka not rattling or vibrating in my hand after release). I immediately noticed a MUCH cleaner follow through with the bow popping out of my hand. The weight of the stabilizers was perfect and balanced my bow out beautifully. I would highly recommend this stabilizer set up to anyone who wants to feel a strong crisp shot follow through and is tired of rattling/vibrating equipment.

  29. Christopher Davis (verified owner)

    I was previously using another brand of stabiliser which I found to rigid and provided no dampening.
    Once I put the Vektors on the bow felt more settled during the setup of my shot, the release felt more natural in my hand, and the dampening of post shot vibration was amazing.
    The tapered design has also assisted in holding steady here in gusty winds.
    Had these rods on my bow when I went to the world Archery para championships and finished top seven of the W1 category.

  30. Jackson Mirich (verified owner)

    The Vektors dampen the vibration so well, I was using the Ultra v3 and even though I run 5 ounces on each rod I felt the difference when I switched to these rods. They are one of the best stabilizers on the market

  31. Fatin Nurfatehah Mat Salleh (verified owner)

    Awesome stab! Love the Steve Wijler dampening, amaze how it dampens the vibration.

  32. Landon Richardson

    The vektor is a very good stabilizer it dampens exceptionally well and has no issues with a lot of weight. It is also tapered and quite narrow so it makes it easier to train and compete in the wind. The tungsten dampening is very effective and allows for me to get the bow to sound how I would like and you can change the feeling after the shot.
