Pretty easy fix and inexpensive to replace. I agree that they look battered and torn. There are so many string noise suppressors out there I'd head to the local bow shop and have them install a couple of new ones. If you are a little bit handy they are pretty easy to install. Some advertisers claim that their products increase the bow speed, don't know/believe if that claim is true. All the major stores sell similar products. I think they all work to some degree to suppress string noise.
