    How many use the String Supressor/stop, and what do you feel are the advantages to using one? After my episode with the bow limb explosion, I am wondering if it would take some of the stress off the limbs by stopping the string from whipping past release point???

    On my XT I have the original string suppressors at the cam and idler. Then I have also added limbsavers, cat whiskers and an STS.

    I will be adding an STS and limbsavers to my Ovation before long.:peace:

    I have the one Coolhand Luke makes on all my bows. I help him with some things and he hooks me up. I like the looks and the feel it gives me and never had the string slap my arm, Quiet as a mouse to. It is a [lus who ever makes them.
