nycredneck,
X factor just came out with some really nice string silencers called the "String Factor". They come in a pack of 4 and here is their ad:

The best string silencer on the market today. Made from our specialized A-Tech Rubber with and amazing Lifetime Guarantee the only guarantee on the market today. No more worrying if your silencer is going to fly off your string during a hunt or tournament! Little to no loss in string speed! No tying silencer into string so you can adjust for maximum dampening! If they don't hear you, they can't jump the string!!!!!



and I have them in stock.

I don't want to sound stupid. But what is a speed nock? Whats is for and what does it do?
When I bought my Commander new it came with what I thought were called speed nocks. They are regular brass nocks specifically spaced on string a couple of inches below cam then heat shrinked on top. I wanted to put these back on as the original string had them. Supposedly they add speed to the string or arrow somehow?

Now I know what your talkin about. Yes these are nocks installed on the string to speed it up some. If I were you, I would put Bowtech strings and cables back on it because of the warranty. If your not worried about it, it won't matter. If you want recommendations on strings, Winners Choice and First Strings are very good. Most of the strings that you buy from an indiviual is just that....strings that are not stretched properly, thus you get waht you pay for.

Cat whiskers! A properly tied cat whisker will silence a bow better than anything out there...
