    I use these too. Then again my bow is old school too. A Oregon Deschutes, around a late 80's to early 90 vintage. I bought it used around 92.

    Yep, I'll give a few fps for less sound! And they look great!

    I was going to use cat whiskers but every time I caught the cat and started pulling out whiskers he clawed me to pieces. Any suggestions on how to pull them without getting eaten alive?

    I like string grubs as they also increase speed. The cat likes them too as he can now just lay around licking himself and coughing up hair balls.

    A smack with a frying pan with keep the cat quiet till you harvest those whiskers, no problem.
    2 wraps of thread then pull tight, till your fingers bleed tight, then tie. That will stand the fibers right up.

    Default T.J. Conrad showed me how.

    Separate the bowstring and place each whisker in between the strands. (I use a 14 strand dacron so I split seven to a side) T.J. recommends using dental floss. I use dacron from my old strings. Now, using a 10-12" piece of your string of choice, simply make 5-6 figure 8's, or "X's" if you prefer, around the rubber and the entire string and tie a good square not or two to hold it in place. Pull both ends of the rubber taught and cut diagonally across the ends with a scissors to release the separate strands of material.
    This method of affixing the catwhiskers to my strings has outlasted the servings of my bowstrings and I guarantee ol'T.J. knows his stuff.

    While many thread their cat whiskers through their bow string, before tying them off, you may find after your arrows may begin to fly left or right of the bullseye. This can be brought on by an uneven balance of your bowstring, now that your cat whisker is loading on only one side of the bowstring. Just a bow tuning tip!
