alot of it depends on what you're using it for.
in my opinion...a good hunting stabilizer should be one that is compact and extra points for vibration reduction capabilities.
For the price, the Sims S Coil is hard to beat.
I like a stabilizer with some length to it, so your bow rolls forward when you shoot. I have shot muzzleloading matches and a lot of 3d and the extra length really helps you stay steadier. My hunting stabilizer is around 10" and it is a Doinker D2 four rod.
If you can, go to a pro shop with an indoor range and try different stabilizers.
You don't have to spend a lot of money to get a quality stabilizer, but it seems that the new technology (vibration dampening) always comes with a higer price tag.
