Default String Silencer

What is the best string silencer on the market today? I have used the Spider Silencers and the Tarantulas, and I'd like to narrow my choices on my new string.

I really like my fuse silencers that came on my Hoyt, I think they call them string shox. They are pretty light and seem to be effective.

Bowjax also work well as do String Leeches. You can also pick up some Limb Savers to help with the noise/vibration reduction.

I use Limb Saver string leach's, stabilizer, and limb silencers. They work very well for me. The noisiest part of my bow is my QAD fall away rest. I can hear it "click" when I release. Other than that, my bow is really quite quiet. I put all the same stuff on my Betty's bow and man did it quiet it down. She is shooting a Whisker Buisquit and I think that makes it a little quieter as well.

Tweek your cams, get the most performance out of your bow.
I don't use anything on my bow string except a peep and a loop.

It can be done. plus I got 5 FPS out of it too.

If you want to silence your shot more then use a heavier arrow.

The QAD rest sounds loud during the release but actually it's right next to your ear making sound louder than it really is, have someone stand 10 feet away and they tell if it's loud.
