    I have a Tribute and can't decide whether or not to put a STS on it. Double or single? How much speed diffrence if I remove factory string dampeners? Anyone with a tribute or allegience out there using an sts please post your comments. Thanks

    I have them on all mine.

    I prefer them on my bows,due to 2 or 3 reasons.
    The arrow leaves the bow the same consistently every time,also reducng lower braceheight to be forgiving on the arm.
    It makes the bow quiet as well as dampens the vibration dramatically.

    I know alot of people on here love their STS but I cannot hear my bow now and it has a generous brace height. :rockon: So would it really benefit me to put out another $50 or so for one?:peace: Right now I am saving for a new hunting sight. And wonder if I should just go ahead and buy the STS now since I will not need my new sight until around August. Help me out here fella's.

    Heres the deal Frank, you buy one and try it, and what I mean is put it on the bow, shoot for a few days, then take it off, if you decide then that you dont like it I will pay you full price plus tax and shipping for it. Hear that everyone?? You are all witnesses to this. Buy the time shipping and ever thing else gets factored in you should be up about ten dollars or so, hows that for a 3 day investment?

    Thats how good I think they are. Besides I need one for my fiance's bow.

    This is what I do at the shop. I'll put it on, if you don't think it made a positive improvement, I'll take it off.

    Then I walk out on the range, have them shoot two or three times with it on. I grab my allen wrench, remove the sts and have them shoot again. That is all it take. They say put it back on.

    Ok fella's now that I have decided to get an STS my question is Single or Double? If I go with the double will I have to remove it to put bow in case? Chris how long will it take to ship one to me in Indiana? Thanks for all the help.

    Either one will be good Frank and I dont see why you would have to remove it to put it in your case. I have singles now but want to try a double, also I have 05 modles, before they put on the new ends. What is it called edds or something like that.:biggrin1:

    what is the string life reduced to by using this, i have been thinking of trying one, but the thought of the string impacting it time after time cannot be good....

    As of this Sunday will have mine for approximatly 1 year (on my Switchback) give or take a week or two. I still have the original string and cable on my 05 Switchback. Shows NO and I mean NO signs of wear. At the point were the sts contacts the string.

    By the way Bullspotter, You serve the string for about an inch and a half right were it contacts the STS, they send you some in the package but I used my own.

    I just put one on my Allegiance and what a huge difference.
    I'm going to keep my bowjax on there though. The Allegiance is a pretty fast bow so a couple FPS really is not going to make any difference at all...

    I did...............and by the way are you still going to buy my STS???:laugh:


























    J/K its not going anywhere.:wave:


    The thing I like about the original STS is that if I get a different bow it is adj for different BH's.:noidea:
