whats the best and cheapest way to make my bow quieter? i just bought a used (late 90's model) martin pantera, and put a pair of bow jax on the string, but its still a bit twangy when i shoot. it has a stabilizer, about 6 inches, filled with sand i think, and thats about it. should i replace the stabilizer? would that even help?

Swampwise the stabilizer might not be your problem, what brand is your stabilizer ? Also you can get a winners choice string, they run around 80 bucks, I know that sounds high, but they are worth every penny! You also can put string silencers on the bow string, try string leeches by limbsaver. You can also put limbsavers on the bow limbs, they work very well. If you have more questions shoot me a pm !

you can put some limb dampeners on it. but those older bows are not gonna sound like a new matthews. but there is nothing wrong with that. they'll kill deer just like the rest of em. :thumbsup:

Limbsaver everything. The limbs, the cable slide, the string, the quiver. Simms makes some good stuff. I would try that and see if it helps.

the only limbsavers ive found are the ones that fit between the two beams of the limb. my old bow has solid limbs, no gap for the limbsaver to fit in. do they make limbsavers for my type of limbs? if so, how much do they cost and where can i find em?

At Gander we have the whole kit with leeches, the limbsavers, and maybe a few other things for 20 bucks. They do make them for your bow, they stick on. Make sure you get them where you want them though because they don't move.

yes, people put them in different places, but for my bow I think they work best just in front of the cams.

stuck on the limbsavers, bought a new stabilizer, the doinker, and it shut my bow right up. worked like a charm.
