Mabe not the correct name , but is it better to put something on the limbs for the string to hit against ? I have seen some with leather strips on the limbs ? New to Trad bow hunting. I have had the bow for years .Old hoyt wooden one piece recurve. 45#@28 inch .
There are probably tons of this stuff between 3rivers and Lancaster Archery. 5 people will give you five different ways to do it.
The best thing to quiet down a bow is finding the correct brace height and a tuned arrow. Good Luck.
