Its not the first time the issue has been raised. All the differing opinions on effectiveness, accuracy, and speed a year or two back got my curiousity up. A string stop/suppressor is just another accessory ... you have to decide for yourself if you really want/need it. Does the Monster need a string stop since it doesn't have suppressor arms? ... I ordered mine without the Dead End, just to find out.
I don't know if most bow manufacturers are including string stops on their new releases because they really work that well, or if they realized that bows sold better with them, like a putting a chrome grill on a truck.
To my thinking, if they quiet the bow they make a lot more sense than loading weight on the string and slowing the arrow to reduce noise. In my experience, the string stop does change the sound from a Twang to a Thunk. Does game know the difference? ... if not, I believe they learn quick.
For those who really want a quiet bow, this is a must read article, probably the best thought out one I've read ...
