One word... Bowjax. If your stock sting had nock sets on it and string silencers on it . That is all wt on your string. Try to add wt to the string in locations same as stock string. Should help. I feel bowjax work better then limbsavers. But some testing will get that thing whisper quiet..good luck

Thanks for all the tips. I put a string stop on and it worked great I also bought some bow jax and as soon as I can borrow a press I will put those on but I am super happy with the string stop.

Re: Quieting my bow

Are you pulling max weight? This may just be me but I shoot a Hoyt from 60-70 pounds draw weight. I was shooting about 63# of pull and started cranking it down to get ready for hunting season. It seems like the closer I get to the max draw weight the quieter the bow has gotten. It might just be me though.

Korhil if you give loans I will upgrade 0% interest would be great. I already bought two bows this year and planning on one more. So I am on the back burner for now.

Tore up my shoulder skiing a couple years ago so my bow is set at 52 pounds but I crank it up as I get better.
