    X2 I now use this method myself and feel the whiskers do a great job. Way cheaper than leaches or any of the other string silencing products too. I used leaches all the time b4 I listened to the guys on this forum. Whiskers all the way now.

    So should I pull my leaches and only put whiskers? Or try with both?

    Lightbulb Shsssh!!! The deer are sleeping....LOL!

    I have tried whiskers and ended up not liking all that stuff dangling on my strings. The Astro Flight string material has proven pretty quiet all by itself. If I need to quiet my bowstrings down, which I don't I just use a heavier arrow. Works like a charm. Always loctite accessories in and ensure they are tightened. Martins VEM's do a great job in quieting the bows. JMHO

    I would remove leaches and go w/ the whiskers only. That would be my preference.

    leaches are not very durable, tending to cut in half and pop out aftershooting a while.........at least that has been my experience, and most the guys I shoot with that have tried them.
