      A:

      Both can be very effective separately or together. The brush buttons work well by keeping brush out and silencing the string, the string groove silencers help eliminate the noise from the string hitting the limbs.

      A:

      I tried the calf hair silencers but they did not stick on my bow for very long. They did quiet it down a little though. I don't think the brush buttons quiet the bow down but they do help keep brush from getting stuck between your bow and string. I use a combination of brush buttons and Muskrat Fur silencers on my #45 Bear Grizzly recurve. A good set of string silencers should take care of the noise for you.
      Hope this helps!

      Hello Jinliang,
      I prefer brush buttons for two reasons. They dampen the string vibration and noise, plus they help to keep brush and debris from snagging in between the bow limb and string. Easy to use and put on the string. I love'em, and I've been using them for decades with my various recurved bows.
      Hope this helps, fellow archer.

      Yes, you can always add the string groove silencers later.

      A:

      Honestly, I do not know which would be best. I am new to trad shooting and a
      friend had recommended the buttons to keep brush from getting between the
      string and bow limbs. For that purpose they worked well. As far as silencing
      the bow, I don't think they were made for that. . I use them on my R/D LB
      Omega, and beaver tail string silencers. The combination works well for me
      on my LB. On my older Ben Pearson Recurve I use the groove calf hair
      silencers. I am still tweaking on the recurve. It is a short bow and I do
      not shoot it much. I believe proper tuning (arrow weight, length, brace
      height etc..) of the bow and arrow combination is the first step in
      achieving optimal silence. I hope this information helped.

      A:

      There will be a wire that is split that you will put between the loop of the string,then slide the button down the wire. Then you will grab the wire with a pair of pliers and pull the button down the string.

      A:

      Using the cotter pin provided or a bobby pin will work and placing it on the loop on the end of the string.
      Put some bow string wax on the string loop for lubrication and put the cotter pin through the hole in the brush button.
      Grab the end of the cotter pin with a pair of pliers, hold the brush button in your other hand and pull.
      Voila!

      A:

      My brush buttons came with a small cotter (codder?) Pin, you put the loop
      of the string in the eyelet of the pin and pull it through, the rubber
      stretches around the string and doesnt damage it, if you didnt get a pin
      you can buy one at home cheapo for pennies or maybe try some sort of heavy
      duty copper wire to do the same. I was hesitant at first but pulling the
      pin through the rubber with the string attached was easy and damage free.
      Hope that clarifies.

      A:

      I hear you, I thought the same thing at first. However, if you use the cotter pins it should work just fine. The rubber on the brush buttons is more flexible that you think. If you don't have cotter pins, you can use some monofilament. Just be sure to use a heavy test, so the string won't break on you.

      A:

      Atb,
      Brush buttons are usually supplied with a bobby pin-type device. What you do is put the bowstring loop through the bobby pin and then push the bobby pin through the brush button hole. Then remove the bobby pin. It's like using a needle threader.
      If you don't have a bobby pin in your package, just go to Wal-Mart and buy a pack in the Women's Cosmetics section. Or, you can male a threader with a piece of copper or bailing wire.
      Be careful not to damage the string when pulling it through the brush button.
      Good hunting,

      A:

      The Brush Buttons come with a Bobbie pin (cotter pin or similar). The Bobbie pin is clipped over the string loop and the brush button is pulled down the string using pliers on the Bobbie pin. Be sure you put the brush buttons on in the right direction or you'll be starting over. The direction shown in the illustration is correct however it is very unusual to see brush buttons on a long bow limb. Brush buttons were meant for a recurve limb where the string to limb angle is very acute .

    No instructions provided with product and can't find tutorial, therefore, how are the buttons installed on my Samick Sage T/D bow?

      A:

      They come with a little wire that you put throw the loops on your string. Once you do that you will want to put the wire throw the hole in the brush button, with dome part of the brush button facing up. Then you grab the wire with a pair of pliers and then pull the brush button down the string and do the same to the other end.

    Will these work for my long bow or are they only for recurve's?

      A:

      You can put them on a longbow. They were originally intended for recurves and will not help a longbow as much.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      I really don't see how they would benefit a longbow user... I believe they are only used to keep brush and weeds from pinching into the area of the recurve where the bow limb rides right next to the string. With a longbow this usually isn't an issue. However, I guess it could be looked at (and used) as a nice, soft rest when your bow is hanging on a branch or something hard. Just a thought.

      Yes, they work well on longbows and recurves alike I have a set on my custom recurve and my Thunderstick MOAB. They work nicely for eliminating nearly all of string slap noise.

      A:

      I use the smaller size on a reflex-deflex longbow, and it works great. Really...I was amazed at the tangled junk I was walking through with no snags. Before I put the Brush Buttons on, the same bow was snagging-up while I was creeping through a bean field where I never suspected the problem. I like mine; will always use one on the longbow from now on.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Depends on the angle of string to bow limb. These work best where there's a sharp angle for twigs and weeds to get stuck. The brush buttons keep stuff from getting caught in the sharp angle.

      I can't attest to buttons made several years ago but these are very soft, light and easy to install. They also help to reduce noise.

      A:

      The size of the brush buttons is a personal preference. It refers to the outside diameter of the button, not the diameter of the hole the string will go through.
