Depending on how old the string/cables are it may need new ones. Strings creep (elongate) with age and allow the cam(s) to be over rotated which can be a source of excess noise. So new strings and get the bow set to the proper ATA and brace height is what I'd recommend for starters.

Then get some limb savers and a set of Cat Whiskers. STS can help, but IMO they are over rated. Let me just say the cost doesn't justify the end results.

I somewhat agree with bfisher however, it does slightly quiet the bow strings. Not worth the 40 or so dollars they want for the sts system. What i would suggest is making your own. Very simple to do. 8/32 cold rolled bar stock, and rubber stopper from fastner isle at local hard ware store. And some camo paint. I made mine for my 09 Bengal and it cost me $5.25 at lowes! So in that case it is worth it!
