Ben Pearson Archery Unveils Innovative
New VIB-XTM System On 2002 Bows

The new VIB-X System from Ben Pearson Archery has been proven to remarkably dampen noise and vibration on today's bows.
For several years the archery industry has been intrigued by vibration damping devices of various design. In fact during recent years, "vibration damping" may be the most used phrase by archery enthusiasts of all types.

Realizing the popularity and importance of reducing noise and vibration in compound bows, bows that are growing shorter and faster by the day, bow manufacturers are now studying vibration damping. Their attempts have met with varying degrees of success, from gimmicks with no measurable effect to design overhauls that one must shoot to fully appreciate. The most recent and innovative development comes from Ben Pearson Archery. 

The new VIB~X System from Ben Pearson Archery has been proven to remarkably dampen noise and vibration. (Pictured with the new Pearson Stomper Stabilizer. Designed exclusively for VIB~X Bows by Vibracheck using VibaSORB technology..)

Founded in 1938, Pearson's latest catalog states, "It's understandable that it would take one of the oldest companies in the business to take noise and vibration reduction to its most effective level ever." There is nothing old however, about Pearson's new system, aptly named "VIB-X". The VIB-X System consists of a soft elastomer insert, made of exclusive VibaSORB material from Vibracheck in Pensacola, Florida. The insert is positioned in the bow riser where the stabilizer
mounts. A dowel in the center of the insert allows an archer to attach stabilizers or other accessories to both the front and back of the bow riser. 

At the explosion of your shot, vibration and resonance traveling through the machined aluminum riser encounter the soft VibaSORB insert. The material effectively dampens much of the vibration on contact by disrupting its natural frequency, much as you would disrupt the frequency of an oscillating guitar string by touching it. The VIB-X System further dampens vibration and recoil when the added weight of accessories causes the dowel rod in the center of the VibaSORB insert to move against the elastomeric material. The VibaSORB softly, but quickly arrests this movement thereby damping any remaining vibration and recoil.

 The result is a very innovative system that accomplishes what it claims. It reduces noise and vibration levels by a margin that is more than just "measurable" with sensitive machinery - you can actually hear and feel a difference when comparing bows with the VIB-X System to those without. This makes Pearson bows much more pleasurable to shoot. Trophy bowhunters like Connecticut's Del DelMastro have proven Ben Pearson designs in the field. 
The new Pearson Stomper Stabilizer was designed especially to assist with damping any stray noise and vibration on bows like the Diamondback VX.
 Pearson established several alliances while researching and developing the VIB-X System that will help it remain on the technological forefront of reducing vibration in bows. The company's relation- ship with the University of Alabama's Mechanical Engineering Dept. proved instrumental in the develop- ment of VIB-X due in part to its extensive vibration testing equipment. Pearson also sought the help of Vibracheck (R&R Enterprises) due to that company's experience in effectively reducing noise and vibration with it's brand of bow stabilizers made using the        company's exclusive VibaSORB material.

When asked about Vibracheck's role in the VIB~X project, Ron Gilley, President of Vibracheck replied, "It's as slick an idea as I've seen to reduce vibration right there in the bow without adding some sort of an attachment. It's one of those classic innovations that makes me say 'Why didn't I think of that?' The design crew at Pearson is really on the cutting edge with this one. We're thankful for the opportunity to supply Pearson with VIB-X inserts made from our material. VibaSORB is perfect for this because we can get it very soft and that enhances vibration damping properties while still maintaining the integrity of the material, and guaranteeing the durability and longevity of the part." 

Roger Templeton is Ben Pearson's R&D specialist. Ben Pearson Archery has taken the lead in eliminating vibration from bows with its innovative new VIB-X System. The bar has been raised and competitors will have to rise to meet this challenge.
