    My name is Griffin and im just starting to get into bowhunting. I made my first bow purchase a few weeks ago at Green Top and got the Parker Frontier and am very impressed. I have been enjoying it very much. But i need a few things to quiet the bow. Got any suggestions? Thanks!

    Make sure everything is tight on it (EVERYTHING). Then try-Stablizer, string silencers, maybe a heavier arrow. Make sure it's tuned properly.

    increase the weight of ur arrows... it will help a lot and increase the energy in which they hit.

    stabilzer... i got the NAP apache 8", i can tell a difference over my old stabilzer.. im sure there are better ones out there but i found it on sale so gave it a shot.


    i think i would start by increase weight of arrows first... heavier arrow, heavy broadhead, inserts, etc.



    Greentop is a money pit... i cant go in there without buying stuff

    I like all the limbsaver silencing products. Try those and see how they work out for you.

    heavier arrow, good stabilizer, good string suppressors, string stop, the list can go on. Tons of stuff out there, just do you due diligence. Like stated already limb saver makes some good silencing stuff for good prices. Good Luck!

    If you need to buy a bunch off "add-ons" to quiet your bow down then something is wrong with it. As others have said the no. 1 thing you can do to make a bow quieter is shoot a heaver arrow.

    I've tried the limbsaver limb dampeners on my previous solid limb bow. Also used them on my insanity limbs. I recently took them off. I cannot tell enough of a difference when they are on vs off. I see it as unnecessary weight. I also use the double finger type bow holders in a few of my stands, where it makes it more difficult to take bow out. And like a few guys said on here heavy arrows are the best silencers.

    If you are still searching for ideas to quiet your bow consider spider legs over string leeches. Some may think they don;t look as cool but they work.....

    I have the mini limbsavers on my sight and rest. It takes away a lot of vibration from the pins and my drop away rest.

    Although I found my bow pretty quiet to begin with, I added Bowjax Max jacks to my limbs and a bowrattler string stop along with a limbsaver stabilizer and it is very quiet even with the quiver still attached
