    Default TRG problems? Is this a solution ?? Dual string supressors?

    I see a lot of people are having issues with the TRG. There is a guy who made a custom TRG with just a single rod in a bent 45 degree angle position. This design he used enabled the regular cable slide to move in that 45 degree angle postion. Maybe this could be a better design idea for next year?

    Another is the SOS concept. Instead of the one that people have had trouble with breaking. Maybe Martin should have dual string supressors one on top and bottom. Bear Archery does this. Maybe make modifications on the TRG and then use dual supressors. What do you all think?

    I think it's a viable concept. I thought about dual SOS's. I haven't got much further though.

    The dual string suppressors work very well,no hand shock and make it very quiet.

    They have the best suppressor because the rubber if offset, the rod isn't inline with the string so the riser doesn't cop most of the shock. The only bad thing is replacing two rubbers instead of one. Fortunately they don't cost much more.

    Btw, I'm not a huge fan of stops period. I'd rather use catwisker's.

    Noticed quite a few bows having both lately. Can't beat the whiskers!

    Default TRG problems? Is this a solution ?? Dual string supressors?

    I saw a pic of, I think, a Bear Carnage that had dual string suppressors.

    One suppressor or dual suppressors? How about none? None equal less to adjust or worry about. This quiet BS is just that, BS. What's noisy on a bow? Well, for one, quivers. Another, some of the slider sights. Vital Gear probably had/has one the best sliders out and mine was a pure rattle trap. My hunting bow has only Limb Savers bolted on the limbs, nothing else. No string leaches, no whiskers, no quiver, no nothing. Shortest kill shot was right off the arrow. Longest kill shot was 36 yards. Two or three deer were looking right at me right before they headed for the freezer.

    Is the sight noisy? Find out. Take it off the bow and shoot the bow. My sight is dead silent.

    Arrow dragging noise from the rest launch arm. Coat it with something and make sure to check it for wear. A roll of electrical tape will last a quite a few thousand shots - last probably a few bows worth. Small can of that rubber coat stuff used for tools. Scentless finger nail polish will last quite a few shots. I hate those prong nylon covers. So thick and then people wonder why their point of impact changed when the nylon cover is wore down to the prong. Of course, a lot of the wear down and some noise is due to setting the rest improperly or poor bow tune. (Off subject, but the shoot through prong style rest should have the spring tension set so the arrow will not come up fully on it's own. Quick instruction; Set the tension so the arrow comes up through drawing the bow.)
