    I've never noticed much difference.
    They typically come two strips to a pack, but as guy in this video shows http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6WNx...eature=related you can put them on using one of them.
    Even a small tie wrap works ok too for holding them in place when mounted as shown in vid.

    Love the video. Don't even think I could screw that up. I'm going to try that on one of my other bows tonight.

    Sluggo,

    I hate to dissapoint...but I have an '08 and the best I can get out of a 390 gr. arrow with a biscuit at 29" is 252...this is after a great deal of tweaking.

    I noticed you mentioned a Warthog not shooting very fast either. What draw weight are you shooting these bows? .......or maybe should ask, what chronograph, used under what kind of lighting?

    Between the 1" shorter draw length and 40gr over IBO arrow weight, there's typically only about 20 fps drop from IBO

    The bow came in the mail yesterday so the weight of a 2009 Cheetah with CSS & STS and nothing else on it is 3lbs 15oz. The STS is only 1.5oz of that. I don't know how they come up with 3.4 lbs. Maybe if you took off the cable guard, string, cable, cam, idler wheel and stripped off the camo paint. Also the max draw weight is 64lbs and it is supposed to be a 55-70lb bow. Not sure what to do about that.

    Same thing happened to me and my 09 bengal as far as draw weight goes. Add twitsts to the cable to get it to peak at 70 lbs. Also, check all your specs such as A2A and BH.

    Thanks for the suggestion on checking A2A & brace height. I was going to try adding a few twists to the cable when I got home tonight but hadn't thought about checking those bow specs.

    Having the correct draw length will also stop wrist slap.

    I messed up and added twists to the string. That didn't work. Then I was told the errors of my ways and untwisted the string and twisted the cable and got it up to 70lbs. FYI, velocity at 62lbs with 384 gr arrows is 269fps with 28" draw with cat wiskers, d-loop, peep and whisker bisket. All this trial and error stuff is kinda fun. I added Diamond Vibrablocks and it took the funky noises out of the bow.
