Good question. I just purchased a new Ripcord and have noise issues while drawing back too. My roomate doesn't have noise issues when he draws back. I think I am shakier than he is. We thought maybe some of that stick on felt would work...but I am leary with it messing up my perfectly sighted in bow.(not perfectly sighted in but close enought to not want to resight... and have to resight after the felt wears down) Anyone know of anything?

I put mole skin on mine and have no issues with noise or anything else. Its a great rest.

Stick-on moleskin. The folks at Cabin Fever just put it on there free of charge when they install one. I've seen 3 installed there and they do the moleskin every time. The apply it to the fork, the containment arm and then too the shelf and side wall in case your arrow does bounce around before its locked in the up position.

Moleskin should work. Fuzzy stuff sucks.

Do what Powerstroke says because that's exactly what I have on mine (two years) and it hasn't worn off yet and I shoot about every other day. You will be glad you did and it's just another little tweeking to make you more successful.

    • I would say your results speak for themselves, we often do things that don't make sense or trade short term gain for long term trouble. Nature does things for a reason that we often don't understand, why try to fix what isn't broken?
    • Two charter boats. (11 people) Fishing was very slow last Sunday afternoon (8), but we did really well on Monday morning (43). Due to bad luck drawing cards, neither Mrs Duff or I touched a rod on Sunday. She went 5 for 5 on Monday. That's fishing for ya though. And true fishermen understand that.   Some real nice fish this year, good luck to those that make it out there.      
    • And no, it does not have some sort of virus. They are calling it a phishing site and it is not. It competes with Google adsense so it make sense for Google to be sloppy in their algorithm.
    • Great storytelling with pictures on a portion of your life experiences in the  great outdoors.  Thanks for sharing Len.  
    • Len - This was a very nice article.  I enjoyed your writing style.  Take care.
    • I am going to pick up a box to pattern against what I am shooting now. Here is my question. They are available in both 1 3/4 oz. shot and 1 7/8 oz. shot in 12 gauge. In a 3" 12 gauge #5 shot shell, that comes out to a 21 pellet difference. The velocity for 1 3/4 is 1200 fps, for 1 7/8 is 1080. At 20 yards it would make very little difference, but say at 45 yards would you rather have the extra 21 pellets or the added velocity? I suppose the answer is to buy both and pattern them, but I am curious as to the thoughts of the folks on this board. Thanks
    • I was looking to get an otter XT pro cabin this winter, I was wondering of anyone on here has an otter in the pro platform and how they like the extra insulated walls. Does it seem bulky? Too warm on above 0 days? I wouldn't mind just the normal cabin but they only offer it with a bench it seems but having the extra insulation may be nice to have for those cold days here and there. 
    • Thank You for the very interesting and enjoyable morning read
