Vibration Dampers

I have a Wicked Ridge Invader and I'm wondering if the string vibration dampers (rubber bumpers mounted in the front) are worthwhile or the limb dampers would be better or both. Thanks

I use to throw everything I could on my crossbows to quiet them. Now, I don't add anything to them. In the grand scheme of things, I don't think it makes much of a difference.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

My parker became noisier after about 5-6 years, Changed the string and I was amazed at the difference in sound. So much quieter.

Me too, spent $30 on limb dampeners on my Ravin and couldn't tell the difference.

Most deer never hear it coming. Save your money.

shooting at relaxed deer greatly lessens the chance of them jumping the string even with a crossbow.

I shot every brand and model I could before buying. My primary requirement was the same as it always was with a compound, quiet. I settled on a Mission 400. Nothing else was close in my mind. No dampeners etc. required.

That's for sure, a tensed up frigidity Deer is ready to bolt in a fraction of a second.

i like it when they get under your stand and get real tense when they finally get a whiff of you. the best thing to do then is to yell as loud as you can and try not to wet yourself when you see what the deer does next.
