Noise

Is it possible to dampen the noise associated with a crossbow with split limbs...such as the ones you can use on a regular bow?

Re: Noise

I tried on my parker tomahawk, and it didn't work to reduce noise.

Re: Noise

There is a kit from X-Factor that really helps out the split limb crossbows. They are made from a special rubber compound that really soaks up noise and vibration. Up to 38 decibels in some bows.

The kit contains:
2- 4" Stabilizers
3- Limb Factors
2- rubber washers
2- nylon washers
2- nylon nuts
2- string factors
We have these in stock for $29.99

Re: Noise

The stabilizers go through the base of the limbs at the front of the bow. There are 3 limb factors, one goes through the stock in front of the cables, the other two go on the limbs. Two string factors go in the string.

As with almost any noise dampening system there are trade off's. You will loose a few f.p.s. with the limb factors and string factors installed. You can choose not to install them or install them and loose a few f.p.s.

The stabilizers and the limb factor through the cable slot really help out and I don't see the need for the rest of the kit. You won't loose any f.p.s. that way.

Re: Noise

A short video showing the bounce of certain name brand -vs- X-Factor. Which one do you think kills vibration?

I don't see why they wouldn't, but I've never tried them on that crossbow. The AVI on the limbs might make it tricky.
