The second purpose of a stabilizer is to minimize vibration which quiets your bow and removes shock felt in your hand. No matter how smooth your bow is, you’ll always find vibration. It can cause bolts and screws to loosen over time, not just on your bow but also your sight, quiver, and rest. A good stabilizer will have a dampener near the end to absorb as much vibration as possible.
The purpose of a backbar on a stabilizer is simple, more stabilization. I’m sure you’ve seen the guys who walk across the highwire at the circus, carrying the super long poles right? It's the same principal here. The more weight you can get away from your bow the more potential for stability. Generally speaking you’ll want 3x-4x more weight on the back then you have on the front. I know what you’re thinking, but just TRY it. I have consistently found that by moving a considerable amount of weight to the end of my backbar, my groups get smaller and more consistent.
