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...............

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.

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.

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.

Um, why would you take out the shortstop on an 82nd ?

That makes no sense at all.

Adding your stopper in addition to it makes some sense.

The shortstop is WAY closer to the nock point than any alternative string stopper and it is far more effecive at stopping forward string motion than any stopper screwed into the back of the stab bushing...

I have your product on my Allegiance and Ovation so I do know what I speak of.

Meanv (Dan) makes good stuff.... I use his stoppers on 2 of my bows and I would not want anything else.

Ron, I didn't take off the Short Stop, but I did replace the rubber insert with the BowJax one I carry. I believe it is superior to the original. I then added a lower MeanV. So I have them both working for me.

Oh I got ya.... I did not mean to be negative on that one, I just did not understand why you did.

I'm not sure I disagree with you on that call at all.... That stopper is in a perfect spot on the 82nd and 101st, I just don't trust the mounting and the fact that it forces the string into a groove. And I did recently find out that Bowtech delears do not normally stock the replacement rubber stoppers...

Can you PM me a pic of ow yours is set up ?

Thanks man,

Ron

I have meanv's on 2 of my bows and will never shoot with out one....made a believer out of me also.There's a few different one's on the market,but i like his due to the fact that he can match most camo colors and it looks like it part of the bow and not just another add on and compared to others.....the price is right.
