The metal rod goes quite a ways into the rubber stopper on the STS and the stopper fits on there pretty snug. Along with that the String is constantly hitting it back on. I haven't had mine come off or seen any come off. :confused:

Why use either? Draw length too long? You can avoid arm slap by getting the draw length correct. Bow noisy? It isn't too hard to quiet one down without one of those gadgets. Spend the money on more arrows or a better release and practice more....my advice. Neither of those things will make you a better shot-GUARANTEED!

DITTO !! I have had three STS's on three different bows and ended up selling all three. Cat whiskers work great for noise. XP35 is right ~ gadgets are just that ~ gadgets. I am coming to the understanding that simpler is better.

Meanv2

Yeah! go with the Meanv2 css if you can. You're bow needs to have a rear stabilizer hole for his product. Means string supressor is cleaner looking and he can match the camo on your bow. Looks good. If you don't have a rear stabilizer hole then go with the sts for sure. Personally, I wouldn't hang anything off my cable rod. It could cause some torque problems at best and at worse may brake off a carbon or aluminum rod. I bet Meanv2 might even dip an sts for you if you buy it from him and ask him nicely. For a fee of course.:wink: I saw Meanv2 css on a Ross the other day and it looked sweeeet!!! I'm thinking about it myself

Who said either of these will make you a better shot. :confused:

I just like how they take out the string vibration faster.

not falls off, shoots off. ive had that problem, the string would get around the stopper and pull the stopper off of the rod thus hitting me in the chest. i just super glued the sob on and havent had a problem since.:wink:

Not being a wise-arse, but isn't that the whole point in archery? To be a better shot? Not necessarily the quietest one.:mg: Don't get me wrong, I like quiet. But I have made several of my bows, and even more belonging to friends, very quiet without something attached that changes the normal movement of the bowstring or costs unnecessary amounts of money or looks that ugly. Different strokes I guess.

i think they look cool too.

Well, how many have tried both?

The Deadly Quiet that you pictured looks like the original one, which I bought the year they first came out. That year, Limb Savers also came out, and the Limb Savers were a much better product at taking out noise and vibe. That was my experience, and the consensus of most experimenters on various archery forums at the time. To me, the Deadly quiet made a fairly loud "Whap" when shooting, though it did tame the vibration. I remember shooting a Continental bow at the time with no catwhiskers on the string, and no Limb Savers. The bow, even in that state, was quieter without the "deadly quiet", and just a low hum after the shot. My experience with the STS has been similar, but I think the STS does not make quite as much of a whap noise, and absorbs vibration somewhat better. I tried the STS on a Darton, which had more vibration (bare bow) than many other bows I've had. I still think it was a toss up whether the STS actually made it quieter. I really think it was just a shorter, sharper sound, not really less overall noise. I noticed no difference in accuracy. IMO, the right stabilizer combo can get rid of almost all vibration anyway. I am happy with catwhiskers on my string, Limb Savers, good stabilizer setup, and no STS, but that's just me.:cool:

Try the STS version that meanv2 builds. I put one on my 03' extreme and it's super quite. No string leaches or cat whiskers needed.:wink:

You can be just as good a shot with an STS/Saunders/Meanv2 on your bow as without? Plus it's quiter, almost zero hand shock? Your arguement really makes no sense...

I bought the Double STS. It doesnt fit the Switchback well.I tried it with only one rod and it was quite a bit louder. Didnt expect that.

meanv

my vote goes not listed, if your looking for a quality product and good customer service go witht the CSS by meanV2 it will quiet your bow and take the shock out and you can also pick up some speed if you wish by taking silencers off of your string
