Limbsavers on crossbows

Thinking of adding a set of limbsavers to my Storm Rdx. Just wondering if anyone has done it before, and if so, what were the results? Do they really quiet the bow? and do they really help to protect the limbs?

Re: Limbsavers on crossbows

I use sound suppressing devices on most of my crossbows but I don't believe they reduce noise that much or protect the limbs. I think the greatest benefit is reduced vibration during the shot. Reduced vibration just feels better and the shot noise changes, not in volume but in tone. Not so "twangy".

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Agree with dpms. I put them on my Tenpoint and would say my experience is the same as his.

Re: Limbsavers on crossbows

I agree with the above as well. I also use dampers on the strings as well as limbs

Re: Limbsavers on crossbows

So, in your opinion, should I put a set of limbsavers on my Storm Rdx? or is there something better that I should look into?

Re: Limbsavers on crossbows

IMO, this is the best kit out there. Made by BowJax. I don't use the string dampeners though. The limb, stirrup, and retention arm dampeners are great.

I have bow jax on my wicked ridge. Not a lot quieter but a little. Definitely help the thank sound and absorbs the vibration.
