I was messing around with a String Tamer the other day for the first time on my dad’s Drenalin. Before putting the String Tamer on, both bows were fairly quiet and had about the same noise level associated with them from what I could audibly tell. I didn’t think the String Tamer would make much of a difference, but with it, the Drenalin is D-E-A-D quiet. You hear the initial impact of the string on the string stop and then it’s dead quiet. Before hearing them shoot side-by-side, I would have never thought about putting one on my bow…. Now I’m debating it. Who else is using a string stop of some sort on a DXT?
I have a bow rattler on my DXT I think that it works great I wont be without one I also had one on my DREN I also they work great for keeping your heavy coat sleeve out of your string when hunting this is just my 2 cents on it
I thought my DXT was quiet right out of the box…..until I put a bow rattler on it. Now it’s dead quiet.
That’s kinda what I am just now realizing. A few months ago right after I got my DXT, I was shooting indoors at Gander Mountain and had several people comment on how quiet the bow was. At the time, I thought it was ‘a lot more quiet’ than the other bows people were shooting (Mostly PSE, Fred Bear, and Diamond).
BUT now that I have heard the Drenalin with and without a STS, I am convinced a STS device is the way to go!
The Dren is now so quiet, the sound of the 2-degree offset Blazers going through the air is the only noise you hear between the release and the arrow hitting the target!
