    Now I see why they recommend serving the string in front of the STS… And why they went to an all rubber stopper. At one point, that string is actually rubbing along the side of the stopper. :shock:

    As to the first pic… I have it printed out and I hang it behind the metal D-loops. It’s not a very good way to sell metal D-loops that we’re stuck with. But, it sure has helped me to explain why an individual’s roller guard on a low brace height bow (*cough* – LX – *cough*) is looking like it has been dragged over a few miles of gravel road. [-X

    Ditto, that is amazing…. I never imagined that the string would rub the side of the STS…I know what I will be serving!!!

    Very impressive video :thumbup

    Also, curious what a double STS looks like???

    WOW, I never expected that much movement in such a short space/time. I just bought an STS and will have it this week.

    GREAT video, and thank you!

    Could you do one (video) without the STS?

    Would a hand held bow (not in the hooter shooter) show a different result?

    Also one showing the string suppresors in action would be interesting also.

    Thanks,Lee[/quote:3h8x4ytj]

    I would also really love to see a video without the STS. Side to side comparison. Great job posting that this one! It really makes you wonder about how much stress our equipment takes.

    We are not recommending or discouraging it at this time. We are running some tests as well as high-speed video on it, but only as time permits. Once I have more details as to what it does to the overall system, I’ll post more. :thumbup

    Can’t stop watching this…it is amazing footage

    If you watch it and stare at only the boxjax on the STS rod, you can see it is also absorbing forces as well..

    One thing that jumps out to me rather quickly is with the way the string and cable moves, one may want to be careful how far up the rod they place the boxjax, especially on the dual mount.

    Just my :2cents

    Symo, can you guys test the dual mount as well?

    Symo, that was a great video–one which I will recommend for others to see.

    I’ve been using an STS on my Parker Ext. U-Lite 31 for almost a year now; and if the STS didn’t do one other thing for me, I’d still say it is worth having it, since it has virtually elliminated the necessity of wearing an arm-guard while I’m wearing long sleeved shirts, or my hunting camo.

    Wow! I found the sideways travel of the string frightening!

    Side Torque!

    To my ear, the STS does quiet the bow down. I didn’t like the idea of slamming the brakes on the string so I haven’t used it. I’m kinda glad now. Thanks Symo. :thumbup

    Symo might be my new Hero. I love how you can play video in a post like that. Great footage…

    Good job! I’m enjoying my STS more and more.

    Which bow did you use for the video footage?

    Do you think that video reflects well on the STS?

    It makes me more cautious and skeptical. While I currently use the STS, I do admit that it may not be the best thing to put on a fast bow. That video makes me wonder even more.
