Default limb silencers and sting silencers

What is the scoop on these attachments to your set up? What should I be looking for? Limb silencers are around 33.00 and string silencers around 10.00. Have a BEAR LIGHTSOUT with a 56 lb. pull split limbs. Thanks for the info.

For for the most part both are required. Now the string silencers will take away speed from your bow but when hunting its not that big of a deal. It will help you from keeping the deer from jumping your string. Now the limbsilencers will keep the vibration from the bow releasing the string from making so much noise. All of this goes to keep the deer from squating on u when u shoot. Now i will tell u that my bow shoots 300 ft per second but sound travels at 1100 fps so no matter how much sound u take away it will be hard to keep them from hearing the shot but they all help.

i use string silencers,cat whiskers.dont use limb silencers dont need em.each bow is different.have a friend listen to you draw and shoot.if they hear something then a deer will hear it,if they dont hear anything you done need them.the bow companies sell that stuff to make money
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
