The last take-down recurve I had (a bighorn) had a leather or suede pad under the limbs. My new bow does not, it's just limb to riser. Is it ok to put in a thin pad to help dampen vibration, or should I not?

I use that stickey backed felt between the limb and the riser on my martin.
I checked around and it seem like it quites the bow and keeps it form getting scratched up. I just would keep the pad thin.

I use a thin foam rubber material found at hobby shops in 8" x 10" sheets. The foam rubber is close-cell, does not absorb moisture and does not lose its resistance to compression.

I used Dr. Scholl's moleskin on my noisy bow's limb pockets. That, some limbsavers, and heavier arrows quieted it down beautifully.
