No, not the r.e.d.s. On the outside part of the limb.
The Ex-Shox? All of mine went into bin G prior to shooting a bow for the first time. They often go flying off.

No, not a silencer. Picture the bow limbs. On the front of the bow there are some stops; one for each side, with a rubber pad between the metal and the limb. I know there is a name for these but please forgive me as I can't think of what they are called.

In front of the limbs! The Air Brakes. I take s
Those suckers off as well. Find the pad and glue it back on with a cyranoacryic glue.
You could go onto the Excalibur website and figure out the name of the product.

Why do you take them off?

Are these called the dissapator bars? And, of course, the dissapator pads.

Yes or Air Brakes for the newer bows.

Thanks Boo. Why do you remove them? If I'm right, they were put on in case of dry fire. If so, then why would they still put them on at the factory?

The are noise suppressing by trying to snub limb vibration. The pleasure of lower noise vs weigh saving isn't worth it to me. I'd rather use cat whiskers on a Flemish string and a string material that lower noise.
With the ADF, theres no chance of a full dry fire.

Thanks Boo. Thats about what I thought. Also, the noise doesn't bother me nor the deer.

I would take them off because IMO they are basically useless and are a total waste of money if you buy them separate from the bow.

Here you go, pics up.

.....I know exactly what you did as I have replicated it on 2 occasions. You DID NOT set the sled properly on the string when you pushed it down to capture the string. There are 2 clicks and you can visually see when it is properly set at the string...it is not just resting on the ADF....

......now how to get out of the jam once you have cocked the bow and it will not go anywhere....with your hand on the cocking handle force it just a wee bit (as in cocking it further)...there will be almost no movement....AT THE SAME TIME push the grey rabbit ear on the sled.....that should release the sled and it will want to quickly decock so MAKE SURE you have your hand in the strap!

....Actually Boo told me what to do and it worked....I also made the same mistake a second time....

....the reason why this is happening is the A360 is very smooth as I bring the sled down to capture the string....whereas the A420TD is more rough....it takes a little effort to get the first click and even more for the second....I have resorted to bringing the string up to the sled to get the second click!

Oh...one other thing...I am now a member of the "the ex-shox are garbage" club....while shooting my A360 which had them on both came flying off causing both the ex-shox and arra to go AWOL never to be seen again....DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!
