String jumping stopsContributors to this thread:
Replaced both stops. Started jumping them. Took them off since I don't hunt anyway. I'm liking my Long bow and eventually target recurve more and more.
When properly designed and set up, cables don't get past the stops.
Funny thing is it's a 2011 Bear Mauler 50-70# left handed bow. It never jumped the string before the bottom stop wore out. Bear sent 2 new ones. I replaced its. Nothing else, slipped it on as it was. It started jumping. I replaced top one also although not torn. Still jumped. It was sort at 55lbs. I read where Bear recommends cutting down aluminum extensions 1/8" or bending the suppressor. Come on. For what I paid (first bow at Cabelas package deal way too much) it should be fine and not messed up from new rubber boots. I took the entire 2 arms off. Hoyt came up with this years ago. New Bears have one adjustable stop and it's a round plug not a rubber hook. The only purpose of these is quieter shooting and since I'm a target shooter now, don't really need them. Is there any facts on improved accuracy or just quieter?
