    Question what string and cable dampeners do you guys like

    Whats up guys just wanted some input on dampeners. I am currently looking at the wishbone ones but wanted to know what everyone else likes and why. i currently do not have string dampeners but i have Limb ones. I still have a little bit of noise and wanna put some on my strings. Just didn't know if i should go with wishbone or something else. If anyone has any experience with the wishbones input on those would be much appreciated.

    I shoot a PSE Stinger X 2015, 60# 28.5. I put wishbone string silencers on my bow this year, and LOVE them. Granted, they do add some weight to the string, but I found they took the little bit of string "twang" out of my bow. Watch the u tube video from Wishbone for install tips (pre stretch them). I have somewhere around 300-400 shot on mine, and they seem as good as new.

    I'm all about the Wishbone. Cheap, easy to put on, durable, available in a variety of colors, and does the job well. You really can't go wrong.

    The last 4-5 bows I have gone back and forth between TPU speed sleeves and Pine Ridge products. On my Synergy I have the Pine ridge Nitro Button XL's and the Wishbones. The Wishbones are nice because you don't have to take the string off like with the Nitro's and TPU's. Both look great, the TPU's are a little cleaner.

    Ok fantastic. I'm still getting "twang" from my strings as well that's why I definitely need string dampeners. The wishbones actually don't look that bad either.

    PSE4me can you post a pic of what your bow looks like with the wishbones on the strings?

    Not cool enough for gearheads, but nothing works better than the old fashioned rubber band cat whiskers. Cheap, and easy to tie on.

    Personally, if the bow does not need it, I don't put them on. A good string stopper is more than sufficient at killing vibes in a string. Most of the factory stoppers leave a lot to be desired, especially on the Bowtechs. I put a Bow Rattler stop on it and it looks better, is stronger and much, much quieter than the factory one. Not to mention you do lose some speed with weight on the string.

    Coop, how are the TPU's holding up for you. I just replaced a string and cables on my hunting bow and opted to try the TPU's instead of brass nocks. It seems to deaden the string a bit, but I haven't shot enough with them on to see how they hold together. I've read where a lot of people are complaining about them splitting after a short amount of time.

    I personally don't use any the bows now don't need them it's more for looks now. I try to not add as much weight to the string as possible but that's just me .I use the recommended speed nocks but no dampers on my string. Plus I only shoot ABB platinums so they don't need any silencers these strings are awesome and whisper quiet.

    Hutch beat me to it. But even with the old ones, I never had a problem and I shoot a lot.

    The limb savers that came with installed in my string from the factory just split on me yesterday. I can't tell any difference without them so I don't plan on replacing them.

    As stated before, I think the string stop does most if not all of the vibration dampening and Elite puts on a good one.
