Watched it. Good example, good explanation. Now, we wait the time test.

Thanks for that Money Man. Interesting how it states re SOS, that "it loosely holds the string" meaning they are basically recommending not to have a gap between it and the string.

I tried it at varying distances, as well as no gap at all and found it pretty noisy no matter where it was positioned, producing a high frequency slapping type of noise. Last week the rubber stopper tore and I removed it and attached a PSE Back Stop in behind the stab. Consequently, no slapping and a lot quieter.

I will be trying it with both systems when I get a replacement rubber for the SOS.
