FeralHog — You’re going to get a lot of suggestions to this thread, based on previous times it’s come up. Since my bows (all Shrews), if properly tuned, are pretty quiet to start with I just clip about 3″ of leather thong, the size of a sturdy boot lace, and insert it between string bundles. Lasts forever, costs nothing, doesn’t mind getting wet and for me at least, it works. Lots of folks use felt strips but I don’t like them when wet. In a pinch I’ve used heavy rubber bands, cut in half and inserted between string bundles. They work like Catwhiskers but shoot off fairly fast. dave
