    You can easily make some woollen silencers - they work great for me. My recurve accepts a stabilizer (homemade one) and with it and with the puffs i can say that the bow is almost soundless. Not that i need it, but this way it is much cooler

    Heres a sight that shows you a great method. And it uses a constrictor knot.

    I use the same configuration my Bullet-X came with when I bought it.

    Limbsavers on the limbs, and Super Leeches on the string.

    I tried an STS, but I didn't like what I saw on the chrono. So, I pulled the Leeches, and got some speed back, but it still wasn't as fast as it was without the STS.

    So, I played around with it for a few days, and finally decided that the Leeches worked well enough at dampening the string twang, that the STS wasn't important enough to warrant a speed loss of almost 10 F.P.S.

    Since then, I have discovered that any string stop, including the Mathews limb mounted ones, negate any speed increase from Leeches or speed nocks.

    If you must have an STS, you are better off removing the speed nocks, Leeches, or whiskers.

    copterdoc, how long do the string leeches last you. I know on my old martin altitude they wouldn't make it 3 months.
