    Default now i am a real bealiver on how to quiet my bow

    in the past ive had some loud *** bows now that i have my martin it was still loud but quiter than my old ones and i never thought that the string leaches or any of the string scilencers ever quieted your bow but with my martin and thes leaches its a whole lot quieter and heavyer arrows also quiet your bow if you need to but if you have the corract arrows for you and your bow you should be quiet but if its loud try to get heavier arrows and stabolizers dampeners also help i dont know how but they do i went to a dunhams and got a truglo one and its quiet and looks good i dont really know about the limb savers but my old used bow had them but i never took them off so i cant really tell anything about that and the string stops also help on the viberation witch all comes from the string so the string sytop stops the string right there so there is no viberation to make your bow loud now my bow with all that except the limb savers and the string stop is pritty quiet and almost makes no noise and just a littlee bit of viberation but me string stops are in the mail so then all you will hear is a little smack from the string hitting the strong stop then it will be so quiet other than a little smack quicker and quieter then a snap of a persons fingers so if you have a loud bow try these tricks and i will garrentie you will have a quiet bow if now i will buy you a dohnut

    I've got limb savers on the limbs and cat whiskers on the string and all 4 cables ( yep, I hunt with an shoot thru bow.) Had to put the whiskers on the cables when I went to the wide axle on the bottom to seperate the cables. Gail is pretty quiet now. Turns out it was more trouble than it was worth. With the standard axles, the X cables touched each other and stopped the vibration, when I seperated them, they vibrated, was better off just keeping the cables well waxed where they crossed. Its time for new rigging, and when I change the string and cables, I'll go back to a standard axle, got another 6 weeks of hunting season left, then time to change it all out.

    i really dont care for brass knock,but anything you put on your string will slow it down.a nice ball of cat whiskers is all i will use and they work great.i had the leqches too and did not care for them

    ya so i guess its a little prefrence type thing but if you use the leaches you have to get the good ones not the cheap ones

    Had leaches on my Trophy Hunter and they didn't seem to make it any quieter. Put whiskers on it and it's very quiet. My Silencer was fairly quiet out of the box with the sts but I will not shoot a bow that makes noise so a set of whiskers fixed that problem.

    A silent bow is better than a loud bow no matter how fast it is.
