    Default I did but not any more!

    I used one on my AR34,but it made a pop noise after i installed it.It did settle the bow down nicely but not worth the trade off to me...............

    Will never setup a hunting bow without one. And my one of choice is the Original STS.

    My front mount does add a little bulk and weight, but I'm 90 percent tree stand hunting, so a little extra weight is a small trade off for the extra shooting comfort. The tap it makes is no more disturbing than the buzz it eliminates, and I don't need string leaches now. Also, my hand placement seems more consistant. I'm happy with mine. One more thing, after I got it adjusted right, the tap noise was much quieter.

    Same for me. I love my meanV CSS. It made a huge difference in my opinion.
    That course was so easy I even missed a target !!

    I have double STS on my Mathews SBXT and love it. It was worth every penny to me.

    I changed the rubber insert out on the Shortstop on my 82nd and added a lower MeanV. A mouse Fart would rival the noise that bow makes now.

    Super Quiet!!

    I've been wanting to try one, but haven't been sure if it's worth it. Someone let me know what you think. The two bows I have for hunting are: Mathews SQ2 and a Mathews Legacy. The SQ2 is pretty quiet right now, not sure how much quieter it can go but am always willing to try something new.
    That look on my face is not concern, its shock at your utter stupidity!

    Check out Redneckarcher.com. It's an adult archer/hunting site that feels like hunt camp.

    String Suppressors work!! Whether it's mine or one of the other models on the market. Look them over and buy what you like, then enjoy the benefits. I think most people that have tried one will tell you it's one of the best bangs for your $$ you can get.
