Quieting my bow

Anyone have any tips or after market add-ons to help quiet my bow tech sniper? I replaced the string and now it seems way to loud.

    What weight arrows do you shoot? A light arrow will make a lot of noise. A heavier arrow is a very effective ways of making a bow quiet. Monkey tails and other string silencers work wonders. Limbsaver makes some good products that will quiet a bow down. Do you have a sting back stop? These are a good way to quiet your bow down as well. There's a lot of ways to quiet a bow down. More info, or a picture of your bow would help a lot.

    If you added a string backstop, silencers to the string, and limsavers to the limbs you would probably be amazed. You could do this for fairly cheap too. Oh and a stabilizer is another thing I would add. Good luck.

    I myself have a bowtech and let me tell you, bowtech doesn't exactly make the quietest bows on the market. However, I found that the limbsaver below is a great tool to reduce vibration/ noise from a bow. It comes in black and camo, is lightweight, and only $20.
