    What leeches were you using. I presume they are Simms. If you had the old "S" shaped ones I'd agree that they didn't last too long. The newer ones are called Super Leeches (I think) and are the same as those used for crossbows. These work much better as far as durability is concerned, but can still fly out of the string. It's best to have the string twisted pretty tight or serve them in just like you would a peep. On the other hand, good old Cat Whiskers are pretty hard to beat for price and function. They slow a bow down a bit more, but this is just one of those issues you have to weigh. What's more important, a few fps or quiet? For hunting I'll take quiet every time.

    They were the ones that come with the Diamond Hush Kit. I felt they didn't do enough compared to the catsd whiskers that they replaced. Would like to find some yellow and royal blue cats whiskers. Thet would match the string colors.

    Good link, Hutch. Far be it for me to stand in the way of color coordination. Those whiskers are cool.

    Well got the Slayer back on Friday. It is now has 70# limbs. Had 60# before but Joel said they didn't have any left. Camo pattern is a really close match. Shot it in the shop. I'm really happy . Going to mount my sight and get it ready for the first 3d shoot in the next week.

    Thanks to Joel at Martin also everyone behind the scenes there. And to Ron at Extrme Bowstrings.

    Glad you got the ole girl back up and shooting. At 70#'s those B cams ought to send your arrows screaming down range.
