they are basically shock absorbers they quiet down the string noise & reduce the shock
never tore one though
don't know what type you are using. I use the Fuse string shox
only thing that ever tore on me was the peep sight tube but now I run a tubeless sight nothing worse then having that break when you have an animal in your sights
What bow do you have?

I use a string dampner and a couple of string leaches with sims products for any remaining issues.

that is strange should be the same ones on my Rampage XT
Hoyt uses the fuse shox as far as I know
I would ask your bow shop what they would recommend

I have the string leeches from the Hoyt I used to have, on my new Bear bow. After around 5000+ shots between the two bows I finally managed to rip half of one of the leeches. I guess they just get wore out after time.

Do you notice any difference shooting without them?
If not I would just shoot without them no real need to have them unless you get noticable string shock or it is louder

That is odd Your bow can't be that old
one other thing I do is when waxing my bow I also wax the silencers too
I use Scorpion Venom Polymeric Bowstring Wax. it is a soft paste so it applies easy. could be they are dry rotting or weather cracking what ever you want to call it
