String suppressor

8 posts in this topic

I have noticed that most new bows come with some sort of string suppressor system. Supposedly they help reduce vibration and noise. My bow could use a little help in these areas. There are several different ones available to retro fit my bow. Has anyone tried one on an older bow? If so, what brand? And was there a marked improvement?

There is a new String Tamer out now for a front mount. You can google it.

Vister, I'm not doubting you one bit, just curious why you think it tightened your groups?

So, all said it will make a noticable difference and well worth the price?

Mathews just made a string stopper. Very adjustable. Very easy to set up and it don't screw into the front like an STS versions i've seen relatively cheap around 40 bucks but wow it made a difference on my bow.

I would say definitely worth the price. I put one on my PSE Xforce and its amazing its so quiet and shock free. I have no string leeches, or any other "dampening" items. I only use my String Tamer.

Most pro shops will let you try one out. All you need is a threaded hole on the riser below your grip.

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
