    GilV made a comment in thread recently about this. I had to look it up, and I thought others might be interested in a link I found. https://tradbow.com/heterodyning-and-bowstring-silencers/

    I have been given two of those rubber 'X' that Hoyt sells with their Satori strings. Thinking about trying them out. My current string has cat whiskers. I've never run two sets of silencers, but have seen it often on other bows. I'm curious- How would you all set them up? Above or below the...

    Acknowledging that not all strings / silencers / limbs are created equal, is there some basic rule of thumb out there defining the impact to speed adding silencers to a string would have? Assuming standard mass weight silencer materials added to high performance limbs / set ups? Is it 5fps...

    OK. We all know that everyone has a personal "formula" for placing string silencers on longbows and recurves. And everyone also knows that it is often an inexact science of trial-and-error. But here my proposal: I would like to begin a thread about silencer placement that embodies not only...

    I am looking to add string silencers to a Pittsley Predator bow and began to think: Why do I need them? The bow is quite, do I get any benefit by adding string silencers. thanks. Doug

    I read an older thread pertaining to the STS Silencer and looked them up online. 39.99 for an adaptor, a rod, and a star shaped rubber gizmo which allows the bow string to stop forward movement and reduce noise. I'm thinking I may order one for my DAS. Can someone tell me if this will work on...

    Hi there I am a South African looking to make string silencers for my Impala recurve. I would like to make myself some silencers equivalent of Beaver Balls. A friend gave me some Caracal (Rooikat) fur and it has al sorts of fur consistency all over the from very long bell fur to think shoulder...

    Hi, I'd like to know where exactly on the string you install your sting silencers. I've got a Hoyt GM2 and have tried out cat whiskers and beaver fur too, both helped definitely in silencing the bow down a bit, but I'm not sure whether I put them on the right place. I've read somewhere that...

    I was flipping through an archery catalog and noticed that SIMS Limbsaver offers a flat insulator wrap for $12 a roll. It is made of the same Nav-com material as all of their other products. The roll is 1.3" wide and 20" or so long. I ordered a roll and will use 2 sided carpet tape to make...

    So I thought I'd try the silencer suggestion I had been seeing a bit on the web. I picked up some spinnerbait skirting material at Sportsman's Warehouse the other day in flo green and flo orange to match a naked 12 strand 8125 string I had at home. I strung up my newest-to-me DAS (Gen II...

    I am looking for a string silencer that I dont have to tie in the string. Does anyone make these? Also, I noticed that I have 2 threads that are cut, well, looks like they are. One is near the top and one is near the bottom. Do you think she is still safe to shoot?

    As he usually does, O.L got me thinking... I know David has done some pretty extensive testing with string silencers and I'm sure given the time he'd like to do more....and I believe he's settled on wool puffs (light) in something similar to a 1/3...1/3 arrangement on the string...two...

    I was wonderin if any of you guys have used zip tie's to attatch whiskers to your strings and how it worked.I haven't used whiskers the last several yrs but have gone back to them because I don,t care for the spray I get with the first shot when my puffs get wet not to mention the cling-on's...

    Made a recent discovery is the quest for a less noisy warfer. One of my all time favorite methods is the old tried and true Saunders rubber brush buttons. They are getting a little hard to find nowadays so I tried something a little different to kill the string slap noise that the brush buttons...

    There used to be a thread that explained silencer placement in a measured, scientific manner that looked like it ought to make sense. It had to do with measuring in from the ends, I think, in order to maximize the dampening effect on the harmonics. Would one of you guys who understands...
