PAX or any recurve shooters - Hunterbob

I picked up another widow recurve PAX 50@28 62" . I have had many in the past but always got rid of them because I could never get them quiet enough for me and always went back to my widow longbows. But this time I got one of rick barbees strings and wow what a difference the string made nice quiet thump . I can't believe a string would make that much difference

I have no problem getting mine quiet by micro tuning the arrow.....but yeah...a skinny string really does the trick. Regards.

With my form I can even make a self bow loud lol. But the skinny string did do it for this PAXTON

I once owned three PAX's at one time. Loved them all but the tended to ring no matter what. I made up ultra cam strings and retuned to a heavier spine to account for the string and all shut up. The BW that I currently shoot is a PCHX with a Barbee string and it is as quiet as any well tuned longbow.

I have a sbd 8 strand string on my PSA and it is also as quiet if not more so than my longbow, I am kicking my butt for selling a PGA because I could never get it quiet like David said, but skinny strings were a unknown deal to me then...

Dave I own another brand LB,54" and named after a rodent. It was quiet but I twisted up six strands of Ultra=Cam for it and have never bothered to put any silencing material on it three deer and a pig later.

With the skinny string does the serving have to be thicker or do you have to change to a different nock

Yeah the serving is padded as well as the loops.
