    String stoppers

    I've seen a few people lately that have the string stopper things on their bows.. Anyone on here use them? Do you notice a difference?

    What they do I think is they aid in absorbing vibe. I think they are called string suppressors.

    The main things string stoppers do are:

    Quiet your bow
    Reduce hand shock
    Eliminate string slap against your wrist

    Some people say that if you have a string stopper it makes your bow quiet enough to remove string silencers that reduce speed.

    In the manual for my Elite Pulse it says that removing the string stopper voids the warranty. They don't say why.

    I've used one on my Bowtech for over 3 yrs. Made quieter for sure. I still use string silencers.

    They also make the arrow leave the string at the same spot every time and aids in speed from what I've read by having the arrow leave the string when the energy in the string is at its greatest instead of being released when energy is decreasing because the string has passed its centerline. If that makes sense.

    Ditto, Ditto... And yes buy one. They aid in many things, that is why about all new bows being made will have them on them.

    Yes, you need one. My bow likes about a credit card-width between the string and the stopper. You can make your own, too - just get an extra cable rod, cut to length, and put a rubber stopper on the end...
