    Well done - VERY nice looking camo! From your pics I'd bet anyone looking at these pieces would naturally presume they were done by a pro shop.

    Bob, if you think the monkey tails helped, you might consider installing rubber cat whiskers in their stead. I've had various string silencers (BowJax, LimbSavers and others) and none of them did nearly as well at quieting string noise as cat whiskers on my setup. And from shots through my chronograph I didn't lose any speed either.

    Thanks Rocky. It took just a little practice, but it wasn't too hard to do at all.

    Bob, I'm with Rocky about the cat whiskers. They work better than any other silencer I've tried. One little trick I use is, if you have room between the cam and the speed nocks (if you have them installed), put your whiskers there. They work very well there, and can actually increase your speed just a bit. I make about 1 inch diameter "whisker balls" there, and my bows are quiet as can be.

    Yeah, I know I'm grumpy and opinionated.

    I used to have speed nocks on my original string but did away with them when I installed cat whiskers. I weighed the speed nocks and a piece of heat-shrink tubing, close to the length that was covering them, and found the cat whiskers I installed weighed fairly close to the speed nocks and heat-shrink, so I installed the cat whiskers near the same location as the speed nocks, basically trading their weight and gaining the benefit of string dampening. While my setup didn't gain any speed, I'm guessing that's why I also didn't lose any speed, so for me it was a win-win.

    I have always used whiskers but was at a friends place and he happened to have some monkey tails at hand.I will take your advise and fit some once the holidays season has passed.
