    Default Speed Knocks???

    The 09 firecat that I am shooting has, I guess they are called speed Knocks and the two on the bottom of the string have come off and riped through the heat shrink tubeing. Is this going to mess anything up on my bow? Also should I replace them. Do they realy speed up the bow?

    I would either replace them or take the other ones off, and yes they do add a little speed.

    when you remove the old shrink tubing make note of where it was on the string, as placement is critical to best performance.

    I just put new string & cables on my Guardian, the new string didn't come with speed knocks, so i put them as close to the cams as I could, but I re timed the cams on my draw board before I put them on,but these binary cams have to be timed just right if you want it to preform.

    I used to use speed nocks, but my chrono showed me that I got just as much speed by using Super Leeches and it made my string twang go away as well.

    I don't like the S shaped leeches, they don't last long enough, but the "crossbow" style Super Leeches last a LONG time.

    An interesting thing I read in the past few days came from the Strother Archery website. I came across this while researching speed nocks. I read Strother is using what are called No-Glove Oscillation Reducer as a combo speed nock and string leach. Here's what they say.

    "We wanted a product that would double as a speed nock and reduce the string oscillation at the same time. A product that we came across is the No-Glove, it is typically used to wrap your fingers around and pull back the string, on particular bows. In this case, it is used where you usually would see the speed nocks. They add a little speed to the bow, quiet the string, and reduce the oscillation of the string. Not only that, they are easy to set in place, and they look very nice on the string."

    So, while I was at Sportsman's Warehouse this past weekend I found they had some there and cheap. These rubber items come in a package containing one longer piece with two curved sections and one shorter piece with one curved section.

    I haven't installed these yet but hope to this weekend. If I do and the weather cooperates I'll shoot outside and see how they work. I'll come back with a report if I do.

    Anyway...

    I use 'Eliminator buttons' instead of the brass nocksets.
    On an '09 Firecat installing 5 E-buttons in place of the stock 'speednocks' resulted in the exact same speed and took all the string noise away.
    I dont have any silencers on the string or limbs and my bow is really quiet.

    just wondering if you can post a photo of this product.
