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.

HM I think the opposite anything on your string should slow it down it is added weight & resistance they will all tell us what we want to hear but what do I know
only thing I do know is they do suppres noise & vibration

Huntanglergirl I would try a different brand & see what happens as HM stated not an expenive fix

GF, that's what I meant, I don't see how adding anything would speed it up. I should have stated it better.

got ya! If my memory serves me they were called speed balls or something like that! I think the claim was as string is set in motion the extra weight slings the string forward accelerating it????

Premature wear of string suppressors such as those on mathews bows can be caused by your cam or cams being out of alignment.If you keep going thru them fast im willing to bet your bow is out of alignment.Also anything added to your string decreases speed by a few f.p.s.
