: bowtech tie on silencers

Has anybody used them?
Do they work as well as the regular ones?

I would like to use these instead of string leeches because they are easy to replace in the field.

If you are talking about the string silencers that come in the Bowtech Hush kit, they actually slide over your string(like an eliminator button), they don't tie on. I personally think they suck. They don't last very long, just like a string leech.

they make new ones this year that tie on.

If they are effective, I don't care if I have to replace them, as long as I don't have to put it in a press

A great tip for getting more life out of your bowtech string silencers........

The two silencers one the string......cut the little arms off about half the original length. If you do this, they will last forever and your bow will still be very quiet.

Leave the two on the cables full length, as they normally don't break like the ones on the string do.
