    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.

    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.

    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.
