String silencers and positioning on Newer Excaliburs

Post by 8ptbuk » Sun Jan 14, 2018 12:16 am

Was wondering about the string silencers I'm seeing on the new Excaliburs regarding the positioning down closer to the center of the string, Does this help speed wise or improve the effectiveness of the silencer ?

I don't know about the noise factor as I don't have any way to test noise level. I do know that the farther the silencer is towards the limb tip, the faster the bow will be. Closer to the center serving will slow it down. The tests i have done were done on recurves and longbows, and I would think that It would be the same for a recurve crossbow.

I like simple old school cat whiskers . They will work on a flemish string were the other ones wont.

So how loud is your bow with and without the cat whiskers? What is the speed loss?

It appears they are not the same distance from limb tip.I think I would keep them the same.

Boy you guys are observant..... The little adoped manco ibex will shoot 2 inch groups all day long at 40 yards weather the silencers are up down mixed up even with one missing.both on or off loud or quiet.

A lot of things on my body dont quite work exactly like they used to. But its so easy to make excuses for all of them. And now the little squeeks n rattles in the truck l had to investigate and hunt down at one time now are not a concern. ...so its not all that bad dan.

I tried hearing aids and hated them. All those little noises were so loud! I like my muffled world....haha.

A deer pretty much has to run me over for me to hear it in the leaves. Adds to the challenge. Lol
