Installed these on the fast flight with my Samick Sage and they work and look great. The guy who said you can't adjust your brace height without them coming undone is wrong. I am guessing he just didn't follow the directions on the video. One pointer i would give when installing them would be to make sure when you are wrapping the fur strip around the string you get your wraps nice and tight on the string. This makes the ends of the fur strip which you feed through the string more secure.

I am very disappointed with these. They were very thin, and there wasn't mutch to them. They did not quiet my bow near as well cat whiskers. A used bow I bought came with some type of fur for silencers. This fur worked much better than cat whiskers (experimented with both). I thought it was this fur on the used bow, but it clearly was not--not near as much fur, much shorter hairs--didn't work. Strips were 4" long and not near as thick/bushy as what was in the insall video. Very disappointed.

          I just recieved these string silencers and they were super easy to install. after the first shot i could instantly tell a difference with the typical "duuuuuuum" after you shoot an arrow. these COMPLETELY eliminated this noise. would highly reccomend this to anybody!

              Had this product installed by 3 Rivers as well. It keeps the strings quiet, and is water resistant, to a point. Overall, its a good product, at a good price, doing exactly as advertised. I wanted to keep my bow as "natural" as possible, and this product kept me within that.

                Comments about Muskrat Fur Bow String Silencers:

                I added these to my 66" White Wolf Stillhunter longbow, 45# at 28". The rubber ones on the bows fell apart after a month. These were easy to install. They look great on the bow. And most importantly, they quieted the bow down to as close to silent as I think one can get. I am looking forward to hunting with these on my bow.

                I have shot them in the rain and they do work when wet. I highly recommend muskrat silencers for traditional bows.

                  Muskrat is quiet, water repellent and durable. It will probably even outlast the string!

                      I like the looks of the muskrat fur. Before I was using yarn for my silencers. I have tried all different types of yarn and they do a good job. One advantage of the yarn is I could trim it down until I got the best performance and then duplicate it on the next one. When I first put the Muskrat fur on my bow it was a little too much. So I weighted the yarn silencer and cut the Muskrat fur to match the weight to the same weight as my yarn was. This works very well. I actually have the Muskrat fur a little lighter than the yarn now (I believe due to the length) and have great performance. It is quiter than with the yarn and I believe it will do better in wet conditions than the yarn does. The yarn collects the water much more than the Muskrat fur. The best part is the Muskrat fur looks more natural.

                              Here's why I'm throwing them away: If you need to adjust your string by twisting it to change brace height(and you probably will, unless your string doesn't stretch) they come undone.

                              Service and delivery comments:

                              When I asked the salesman for advice on how to install them, he said he used ox-tail silencers-no idea. There is a video for installing them, but it plays music in the background instead of explaining how to do it.

                              The Muskrat Silencers are Great! I bought them with the intentions of putting them on a Ben Pearson recurve with osage orange riser and black glass limbs... Thought the muskrat colors would go well. But I just made my first working hickory flat bow and put them on this bow instead. They look Great and work very well for a bow that had much string vibration. Thank you Three Rivers
