    Default sts and string silencers

    was wondering, do i need string silencers if i have a sts? i got new custom strings made for my firecat, i used to have sims string leeches on my stock strings i took them off when i got my strings changed. Now my bow is extremely quiet. do you think i should put the leeches back on and try to quiet it some more or is the sts enough?

    I use both sts and cat whiskers and it made the bow extremely quiet.

    If you like it without them then leave them off.No need to rob a few fps with them on.

    I'll give a few fps for less noise anytime, not like the loss will make the bow any less lethal, but ya gotta hit 'em to kill 'em.

    I have an STS on my Jaguar, and the only things on my string besides serving is my peep and its tie offs, and my D-loop and tie nocks. I have no problems with noise.
