I want to make my Bengal quiter and to avoid cantact with my arm protector. Is a string stopper suited for this, and how to install it? The Bangal has no thread for this....

An STS type device can help, but is not the correct way to addres the issue you are having. If you have proper form, proper hand position on the grip, and/or proper draw length there is no reason to hit your arm. And no need of an arm guard either.

Try this and see this read with pictures:

This will show and explain to you how to NOT grip a bow, which moves your arm about 3/4" away from the string and greatly improves consistency and accuracy.

OK, never mind. That link doesn't work any more. Try doing a searchy on www.archerytalk.com. Type "Nut&Bolts" into the search function and do some looking there. Alan has multitudes of information about proper grip and draw lengths , etc. Maybe "Proper Grip" would work also.
