    Default Quiet, I'm shooting..

    So, I'm looking for differing ideas to quiet a recurve down. Any ideas that you may have. Thanks

    Cut 3" long wool yarn strands about 20-30 strands a bunch. Place one bunch between the middle of your string about 12" from each tip. The string twist will hold them in place when strung. After a few shots you'll have two fuzzy yarn ball string silencers. Shooting a heavy arrow will also quiet the bow and give you better penetration. One skein of yarn will make silencers for years.

    I also put mole skin right by the tips where the string touches the bow.

    I used the soft side of sticky velcro to quiet the string slap on the tips.

    Type of string, material, and overall weight can considerably change sound.

    Silencers at the 1/4 and 1/3 or both will also help.

    Bd's woollies will help the slap as does moleskin if its an issue.

    Have you checked tiller and how well u have it tuned? Last would be a timing game.

    A lot of noise is also shooter induced. Torquing the string or hand pressure changing the tiller/timing.
