  • Q:

    What kind of witchcraft did the product demonstrator perform during the cut in the video in order to affix this product to the string? I tried for about 30 minutes, accidentally separated all the cords before tying it, then snapped a few while continuing my failed attempts.

      A:

      Make sure you pull them tight before cutting them as well.

      A:

      It doesn't need to be a full sphere like it is shown in the picture, As
      long as the whiskers are attached to the string in a spread fashion they
      will dampen the sound just the same.
      Far as I remember it wasn't difficult to get it to look like a sphere
      though. Try cutting the band of whiskers in half, a smaller band will
      spread more but like I said there isn't a point in doing that besides
      achieving the aesthetic you see on some people's stings.

      A:

      If i remember correctly, the package contains 2 big pieces, so my advice will go on this presumption:
      First, spilt the 2 pieces in the middle and now you have 4 pieces.
      Second, insert 2 pieces on upper part of the string on cross formation (hint: open the string in the middle on both directions).
      Third, repeat same operation on lower part of the string.
      And finally, spilt the parts to wihsker formation (hint: if you want the wihskers more fluffy, repeat step one more time that you get 8 pieces).
      Yours truly: Esa Dahl
      P.S. For first timer, operation can be a little difficult, but practice makes you perfect.

      A:

      Roll whisker tight without separating the strands. With a string separator,
      open a gap between the strings and insert the whisker bundle and then roll
      it into a knot around the string. You can now separate the whisker strands
      without it falling off.

  • Q:

    How many silencers are included? Can I do more than one bow assuming I put whiskers at both end of the string?

      A:

      You get one pair of silencers per pack, enough to do one bow.

      A:

      You would ruffly get the same speed as what you were with your fur silencers.

      A:

      Unlike the fur silencers, the cat whiskers tie around your string in a simple overhand knott, and are not innerwoven into your string. Because they are so non-intrucive I dought you'll see any lack in performance.

  • Q:

    how do you go about tying the cat whisker into the string? do you need to split the string? If so how do you do that?

      A:

      You can just tie a half knot on the string or you can serve thru the string. To do that, unstring the bow and pull the strands apart. You want it in the center of the string. You then string the bow up and, if you like, use some nylon serving string to tie the Cat Whisker string silencer in place so it does not move. This is just wraping the nylon string above and below it and tying a tight knot.

      A:

      Either way is easy with a string separator for compound (if you don't have a bow press) or traditional where you could simply un-string...I did not tie into strands, and they work just fine. I separated each into half's first, tied them in a simple knot tightening them pretty good, then separated the "whiskers". I'm sure there are probably plenty of other ways, that's part of the fun of archery. be safe and good shooting.

      A:

      use a device to split the strings evenly then tie the whiskers to one half of the strings....

      A:

      You do not have to split the string. You can just tie these on using serving or dental floss. 3RiversArchery has a youtube video on how to install these.

      A:

      I split the string when the string is off the bow and then place the flat whisker about 8" from the top and bottom. Now put the string back on the bow. Make sure the whisker is even both sides. Now seperate each strand of the wisker. I use serving string and do a few knots on either side. Then glue the last knot. Yoy don't need a lot of serving string.

      A:

      For years I split the string with the bow unstrung, but recently have begun to tie them to the string while under tension forming a spherical arrangement of the whiskers. I use four speres - one 10" from the bow tip and another 8" from the first. I can shoot my high performance recurve bow with just a whisper of a sound.
