perfect

I don't have an expensive bow and the slap was very loud. These did the trick. It feels like I incresed the value of my bow by 3 fold.

These did not really quite my bow all that much and after about a month of use, they have pretty much come off. The string groove on my limbs forced these to the side and eventually pushed them off the bow. They did not help that much and did not stay on that long. I would not get them again or recommend them.

Well worth it!

Pros

  • Durable
  • Lightweight
  • Strong

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Recurve Bows

    Comments about Calf Hair String Groove Silencers:

    Such a simple thing, but makes a difference, especially in conjunction with string silencers. I've outfitted all my recurves. It provides just enough of a barrier where the string and the limb contact to reduce noise and protect the limb. It's incredibly light weight, it goes almost unnoticed, (not like clunky attachments) it's elegant, the adhesive is strong and it works as it should. For what it is, a thin piece of material, I find good effect. (But realistic expectations are a plus.) Positioning the peices takes some finesse, but otherwise smooth. Really, it's a benefit to any recurve.

    Good fix

    • Recurve Bows

    Comments about Calf Hair String Groove Silencers:

    This is a quick easy fix to reduce noise in recurves. It is not the complet answer but this with some good otter balls on the string will sure keep the noise down. String jump is one of the main causes of wounded animals.

      Comments about Calf Hair String Groove Silencers:

      I installed these on my Hoyt recurve and they do a fine job or reducing noise. My only complaint is the adhesive backing, I would prefer to just glue them on myself. In an case, a great product.

        Comments about Calf Hair String Groove Silencers:

        Noise is always a problem, specially if you are outdoors hunting where silence is survival. Well I bought this product to protect the limbs of my bow, but as a consecuence the noise of my string when shooting is now quiet low. Whatever is the reason for you to use it, buy it...it is a good stuff.

            these do what they were intended to do but don't help as much a string silencers do. my brother doesn't have them on his bow and its only slightly louder than mine.

              Comments about Calf Hair String Groove Silencers:

              I added these silencers to my new Grizzley and they really did the job to quiet the bow down. After setting the brace height and nocking point, there was still some noise form string slap, so I bought these. They certainly dod make a difference. I'll have this new bow ready for hunting this coming season, partly with the help of these groove silencers. I'd recommend them if you seem to have a bow that is louder than you think it should be.

                Comments about Calf Hair String Groove Silencers:

                I realize this could be made at home. For the money, and time saved it is a great product. Delivery was fast and cheap. I all ready had cat whiskers on my recurve. Now with this product my bow is so quiet all I hear is the arrow in the air. My only issue is in our lovely Alaskan weather the adhesive struggled on the edges. It would be nice to have color selection.
