    I do not have a sts. I would think the hand shock would increase due to the string hiting an object mounted by your hand. I am thinking of getting one due to all them great reponse I see in this forum & others, But I have to say I still have questions. Also with that much force transfering to brace what will the affects on it with multiple uses.

    Your sting and cable dance like mad when you shoot WITHOUT the STS as well – perhaps footage could be posted of the same bow or similar without an STS being shot. You would notice even more violent travel, as the STS would not be there to stop it.

    It is kinda liek the bungee effect you see when crazy folk jump off a perfectly good bridge. The bungee absorbs the “impact” of the fall, and each time it gets less and less. Like the string hitting the EDS once..twice…until it stops.

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

    Which bow did you use for the video footage?[/quote:1c826dix]

    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.[/quote:1c826dix]

    Good points pasthru. I do think the video shows the STS in a positive light. The STS seemed to stop the extreme forward string travel that you see in the photo further up on the thread.
    It would be interesting to see a compare and contrast with similar video of the bow shot in the hooter shooter without an STS.
    I am a believer of the STS on the older model bows with a cable guard. I haven’t tried one on my outback or switchback. They are quiet enough and have no hand shock that I can tell so I “probably” won’t be adding one to them. My Q2XL seems to like the STS…big differences noticed there.

    It would also be nice to see a double STS used.

    Yeah… And to think that just a couple years ago there were companies still claiming that no single cam had level nock travel. 8-|

    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

    This is something I have said all along.I did try the STS on my Switchback.But like bow 4 life said.You are slamming the brakes on the string!!The STS stayed on my bow for about 1 hour and haven’t used it since. [=}=]

    I put spray foot powder on my STS so it was pure white and dry. Shot it 3 times and the only place the powder was removed was an 1/8 wide mark where the string hits the end. No other powder was removed from any other area and NO marks on the side at all. Outback,28 inch,72 pds. Just an observation that the Hooter Shooter??? may have affected this video of the STS. :?: :?:

    cool video, thanks! After seeing it I just wonder if the STS does not cause additional stress to the riser, as the rubber apparently does not absorb all of the energy. I don’t know if I had not better take it off my bow………. :oops:

    I have been watching the talk on the pro’s and con’s about the STS. The video is great. :thumbup

    I still don’t know, but ordered one today. I do have some noise I would like to get rid of. My SB is only half as loud as my buddy’s Hoyt, it would be nice to only be at 1/4. Don’t want a Turkey next month jumping string.

    Just wondering, but I remember reading some where that the longer the arrow was in contact with the string during the release cycle, the more speed the arrow accumulated. :?:

    That’s correct up in reference to the “power stroke”….but that is from full draw to brace height only. Once the string reaches brace height it is decelerating and does not contribute to energy/speed.

    Cool video though :thumbup
