    I'd say you'd have to take off the dampner to stop that.....:noidea: Then you'll have string buzz after the shot.:doh:

    My Firecat has an STS on it and I don't really notice it. I had a Jennings a couple years ago with a string stopper built into the cable guard and it made the slapping sound you are referring to.

    I haven't dealt with any of the new Bowtech's so I can't really recommend anything other than to try your STS and see if it helps...

    It's adjustable isn't it? Maybe try backing it up a 1/8" and see what happens. :noidea:

    Instead of blazers you can get Quick Spins or Duravanes but I've never had any kind of issue w/ blazers...

    also it sounds like your string suppressor is to far away from the riser... the stopper isn't supposed to keep the string from coming to its normal place, its supposed to keep it from going past its normal place

    I've heard that both the 82nd and 101 are a little on the loud side but I've heard both are shooters for sure. Maybe just keep them on the range and out of the woods. That built in string supressor idea was a good one, but I don't think its really functional.

    Could you take the factory off and replace it with a cutom shock stop? In other words, do they come with the rear tap since they come with the built in supressor??

    Everyone that I have talked to said if it did make some "contact" noise, the bow was quieted down by adjust the stopper to the left or right a tad.
    I too have heard mixed reviews about it but will still get on to make my own mind up. :D

    The 101 I shot yesterday was very Quiet not as quiet as the Guardian or General, but noise levels for a Speed bow are as low as I've heard. I Loved the way it drew, shot, and grouped:biggrin1:
    Can't wait til mine arrives:cool:
