    I don't think its anything serious, just the way my string is hitting the rubber. I adjusted the stop to the left a bit so we'll see if anything changes. Also has anyone with TRG/SOS on their brand new bows tore thru those?

    While I probably haven't shot as many arrows through mine as Dan has (probably about a 100 or a little more) I haven't seen any deterioration of my SOS rubber element. A friend is having about 20 bow hunters over to his place this weekend for some target shooting, socializing with other hunters and eats. I hope to put several more shots through the bow while I'm there. If there's any new developments with my TRG/SOS I'll definitely post them here.

    One thing I did different than Dan was to install the TRG in such a position that I was able to attach the SOS so the string is just barely applying pressure. I've even pulled the rubber element off a couple of times to check for any tearing, stretching or any other wear and so far it looks like it did when I first installed it. I also haven't seen any cable wear from the TRG either. So, as best I can tell right now this system is working quite well on my bow. I don't know if adjusting your SOS like mine would make any difference with your setup or not but it might be worth a try. I hope you figure out why your SOS rubber isn't lasting any longer than it is.
