best string silencer
what are your favorite string silencers?
i've used cat whisker most of my like - and a few of the limb saver brand that go in the string....
Whats your go to for string silencers ?
Neck hairs off my last cow bison and some wool fibers mixed in.
I haven't found anything that beats good ol' cat whiskers.
I got the very best thing. Just turn my hearing aids off.
Seriously I haven't used anything in probably ten years and all the critters I have killed haven't minded one bit. They all died the same as when I used cat wiskers.
Cat whiskers are the best. With that said I don’t like anything on my string
I got the SVL Limbsavers and they seem to hold up ok. I just replaced one a couple of weeks ago. With my APA bow it takes about 3 minutes or so to swap it out. No bow press needed.
Tarantulas or beaver balls, but monkey tails Or leaches will suffice if you have a string stop.
Cat whiskers for me. Nothing else compares.
I really like to use beaver balls. Just cut a couple strip off the beaver I trap each spring after they are tanned
Could someone possibly identify a type of fur for me. I have an old set of fur string dampers that work well and look really great. They are a short length, dense fur of a very light color. Next to mink, it appears denser and minimally stiffer. I would describe it as off white or a lightly golden/tan white color. Any ideas?
^^^ A grinner, aka (opossum) possibly? Maybe muskrat or nutria that has been dyed. Most likely beaver, though. Beaver fur is a tad bit coarser than mink or muskrat, IMO.
Another vote for cat whiskers from me.
Still by the yarn puff balls every time I find them. Always been my favorite
Just bought some beaver tonight.
Careful Two Feathers, that ain’t legal everywhere!!!
