Mybo Aeris Long Rod
Not all stabilisers are created equally.
The Certo and Aeris stabilisers are how all stabilisers should be made – For tournament archers, competing in real world shooting conditions.
- 20mm, high rigidity carbon shaft
- Solid aluminium mounting bushings
- Silicone damper unit (included)
- Solid Steel weights (included)
- Adjustable mounting thread to ensure graphics are always the right way up!
Q – Are they designed for recurve or compound bows?
A – Both. There is no difference between a reurve or compound stabiliser.
Q - What is the difference between the CERTO and AERIS?
A – The shaft.
The CERTO features a pure carbon, 100% unidirectional shaft for maximum possible rigidity. (22% stiffer than Aeris. 50% stiffer than some other leading brands). The CERTO shaft is approximatly 12% lighter than the AERIS shaft.
The AREIS features a dual core carbon shaft. 1 x 1mm 100% pure carbon, unidirectional layer. 1 x 1mm carbon mix layer.
Q - What is the difference between the dampers?
A - Flexibility.
The standard 25mm damper is suitable for most applications and can hold up to 4 steel weights.
The 40mm damper is recommended only for 1 steel weight.

I bought this rod to replace my cartel long one as it was a bit of soft on the weight I put on (6oz, I really like heavier weights on the long rod), arrived 24 hours after dispatched, which was an amazing speed!
For the stabiliser, its super stiff, really amazing, I noticed the difference once I got it fitted yesterday, and showed a huge difference and improvements on 40 yards already. Gonna recommend this rod to everyone for sure =) only problem? short rod a bit of pricey lol, still waiting for the budget to get them.
If you are not sure about stabilisers
I'm relatively new to archery at just over the 15 month mark and having chosen compound target as my preferred discipline I've had to build my own setup steadily and on a realistic budget.
It's been clear that borrowed stabilisers had done their job and that to improve I needed to invest in my own. I was torn between the Aeris and the Certo as reviews on both provide exemplary feedback and when it came down to it I decided to forego the 22% extra stiffness for affordability of the Aeris.
Now for the experience. Delivery to N. Ireland is a little steep, using the same courier I can send items to Cambridgeshire for less than the £18.00 delivery charge which is always a bone of contention with Merlin. However you have to balance this with the equipment you want and the service you receive which numbs the pain of the delivery price to some extent. As usual purchase is simple and easy to identify the required options and all items required where in stock.
Delivery was prompt within 42 hours of being advised of shipment and packaging was exemplary all items received without so much as a scratch. Good times.
On opening the Stabilisers, "Wow", well presented and when you first receive these you are blown away by the quality and the look of the stabilisers. The supplied tubes can be utilised for storage of and both fitted neatly into my bow case, very useful indeed.
The fit on the bow was firm and secure easily hand tightened and at least for me the graphics where perfectly positioned without the need for any adjustment. This can be said for long and short rods purchased. There are instructions on adjustment, adding weights etc, all surplus to requirement at this time but useful for the future so as will all spares and instructions I've stored these in a safe place.
Now onto the first run out. 30 & 50 metres shot over a 2 hour period in the glorious sunshine.
Almost immediately I noticed a lot and I mean a lot less movement when I had set after my draw. On many shots last night at 50M I was able to easily hold my sights on the gold, my form was comfortable and required no adjustment. Grouping at 30M was so close I got nervous and decided in order to save arrows I would move out to 50m after a few ends. Grouping was well in the 9 spot with enough 10's to keep a grin on my face. The stabilisers where tight throughout and I can definitely feel the difference in my release it all just feels much more solid. I don't know about 22% less stiffness than the Certo but I don't think I'll be at the world championships anytime soon so that 22% probably won't make a huge difference to me at the moment at this level.
I will however say that I am mightily impressed after my first outing with the Aeris Stabilisers. I bought 33" long rod and a 12" Short rod with an offset adjustable mount for the short rod.
My review really represents a beginner/intermediate experience and I intend for people like myself who are not sure about stabilisers or concerned about the investment cost. I can whole heartedly recommend these, a great piece of kit and luckily for me I can see improvements already.
Go ahead give them a go I doubt you will regret it!
Worth the money
Five stars for the stabilising abilities of the stabilizer, but I give it four stars because of the fragile surface. They are alot heavier than the Decut Crown I had before, but alot stabile. Made me Group better.
I wondered whether to go with these stabilisers as they are new to the market and little unknown compared to the likes of Fuse Es etc... and being priced lower than these other more popular stabilisers I wondered if quality was compromised in favour of cost. However, I couldn't be more happy with the results I have had since switching over to the Aeris. A week into using the new long rod and short rods I added 20 to my PB and shot my first 60 end. One comment from another archer was that I had paying a premium to improve my score. cheating, in other words. However, I viewed it as the stabilisers were allowing me to shoot to my full potential rather than being held back by a lower quality stabiliser system. If asked i would recommend the Aeris stabilisers over the other more expensive brands. I think they are priced very competitively whilst, in my humble opinion, offering a better performance than the more expensive and popular brands.
Impressed so far
Bought this as I didn't want to pay over £100 for essentially what is a weight to stick on my bow and so far I'm impressed. It's made a big difference over my last stabiliser, just a cartel cheapy (as would be expected) but is working just as well if not better than some of the more expensive stabilisers I tried out before buying this one and the quality seems just as good.
Only negative, lining up the graphics is pure guess work and is a bit of a pain to do (it's still not right). It would also be nice if a cloth/material case was included for those of us using a bow bag as it's a bit exposed.
