    Default Loud switchback. How to tame it down.

    I went to the outdoor range yesterday since it was so nice and shot my switchback XT for about 2 hours.

    I noticed for the first time how loud it sounds. Usually I'm shooting indoors so I never notice but outdoors you can hear that faint thwang after the release.

    It's much better than my pearson ever could be but I want silent if at all possible.

    Right now the bow has no string silencers which I'm sure would help. I also noticed the rubber stoppers are getting pretty worn. Would replacing these help it out some?

    Also what about an STS. How much does that help with noise reduction?

    Thanks

    Default Xt

    I had to put cat whiskers on mine string leaches didn't work, You should notice a big difference! The string suppressors as far as I'm concerned do not reduce the noise!

    If the factory suppressors are getting worn then yes that can cause it. I put an STS and Cat Whiskers on mine and it is very quiet. But I would say the suppressors are your problem.
