I've used rubber cat whiskers for years, usually doubling their thickness. These silencers are so much easier to install and silence much better. I used two sets on my string do to my bow's large poundage. I expected a loss in arrow speed with two pair, but I was surprised to see that I had no noticeable speed loss. They take a little while to fussed out and break in but overall they are great silencers. I'll never go back to rubber whiskers.

when i bought these silencers, i was really sold on the description and reviews. i have used wool, yarn, ect., but not musk ox. after reading the description and seeing the price point, i thought these must really be some kind of string silencers. when i got them and placed the silencers on my bow i found them to be attractive, very soft and light weight. when i shot my bow i found them to work no better or no worse than any other silencer. overall i am happy with the product, just not happy how much i over paid for it.

Comments about Musk Ox Bow String Silencers:

I installed these on an aluminum riser takedown recurve bow and was amazed at how well these work. They are quite possibly the best string silencers on the market but for the price they better be. They shed quite a bit in the beginning which is easily overlooked considering the way they perform. I wish they were cheaper, but I've yet to find anything that works as well.

    Comments about Musk Ox Bow String Silencers:

    They're very quiet and absorb a good amount of vibration. They do shed at first but it quickly settles. I am an avid hunter and while pricey, these are now on all my bows.

    As always, 3Rivers is a class act and there's no one better for trad shooting.

    Comments about Musk Ox Bow String Silencers:

    To silence my string on my Recurve Bows
    It's very water resistant therefore does not slow string
    The price, but then again you get what you pay for, and not that cheaper string silencers are not as good , it's that most are not water resistant like musk Ox
    So I'll pay the extra to get what I want.

    Comments about Musk Ox Bow String Silencers:

    Quick and simple to place. Simply separated my fast flight flemish, slid it through and tied it off. Saw immediate difference in string noise. The only dow side was just expect it to shed for a few hundred arrow...just small fibers but still evident.

        Comments about Musk Ox Bow String Silencers:

        I tried the other wool silencers, cat whiskers and fur. These are by far the quietest. Easy to install. They do tend to fluff material off for a day or two. Heavier than the beaver fur and cat whiskers but they more than make up for it in quietness.

          I was a little hesitant about spending the big bucks for string silencers but they were worth it. I have never experienced such a muffling effect.

          Pros

          • It Works

          Cons

          • Shed Wool Dust In Air

          Best Uses

          • Longbows
          • Recurve Bows

          Comments about Musk Ox Bow String Silencers:

          I just purchased the Bear Ausable longbow and bought these at the same time to reduce the string noise. I also have the Bear Montana longbow which is very quiet. The write-up for the Ausable was that it was a fast quiet longbow. The design of the Ausable is a fairly pronounced reflex - deflex design so the bow had a bit more of a twang than I expected, more like my recurve. The Ox Bow String Silencers eliminated at least half of the string noise making it similar to the Montana without string silencers. However, I also put these string silencers on the Montana which made it whisper quiet. I have the rubber spider legs on my recurve but they don't cut the noise as well as the Ox Bow String Silencers do. I would recommend these for any bow.
