String vibration

Postby whitacl » Sun Aug 24, 2008 4:36 am

What kind of string vibration dampeners are all of you using.  I replaced the original Diamond string dampeners with new ones and they broke down in a few weeks of practice shooting.  Don't want to loose too much speed.  Thinking about thoes Tru Ball Spiders??????? 
thanks for your help!

I installed a front mounted STS ( shock terminator suppressor ) on my Parker phoenix EZ Draw .
My Ben Paerson EZ Draw came with a string suppressor of its own .

I use a front mount STS and string leeches on my Martin.  Absolutely love the performance but may experiment without the leeches to see if the gained speed is worth the extra noise.
Good shooting.

Glad to talk to all of you, but I'd rather be sitting in a tree stand on a cool morning trying not to move so that the bruiser buck directly below me doesn't figure out that I am watching him!

i also use string leeches and an STS string stopper, that works really well. you could use a string stopper without any addition string dampeners, like the leeches, that would help you to keep your speed. i dont leeches cost you must speed, i have been using them for a couple years. ive never speed tested my bows with and without them, so i dont know how much they slow a string down. i wouldnt imagine more than a few fps. i go for as quiet as possible, so im fine with losing a few fps if it means im a little more quiet on the shot.

I use string leaches, and they've held up for the past two years.  I can't see in wear or breakdown on them.

Last time I used the super leeches, this time the regular leeches are holding up nicely.
I'm on my 2nd year with the same set just like ranwin33.

Man, try a String Tamer. They work so well you just dont need leeches or spiders.
