Do any of you put those round stick on limbsavers on your nice recurves? Secondly will brace heigh have much affect on vibration of the recurve when shot?

No to your first question.

If in "vibration", you mean noise and hand shock, then asolutely, to your second question.

I have used the stick on limbsaver in the past, but with my current setup they did not make a difference, so I don't use them. As for brace height, it can make a big difference.

Brace height definitely makes a difference. Tried the limbsavers once...didn't really work for me but it was on carbon limbs.

Yes on both counts. I have a Tempest and Hex 7.5's. It's as quiet as my longbow. That may have something to do with it or the silencers on my string? Don't care what makes it quiet.

Daryl, The correct BH for your bow will get it quiet, but sometimes that is not enough.

I have used Limbsavers on different recurves, all ILF combos, and they helped.

If you do choose to go with them make sure you install them right where your riser fadeout ends. Good Luck.

Good Shooting->->->->Craig

I use them but not on the bow believe it or not. I stick them on some of my bow quivers to quiet them if they happen to be the source of some noise.

got them on some of my bows, cant hear a difference ymmv...ron

I use them on most of my bows. They do make a differance in noise and feel of the shot. Sometimes very little. Correct brace height will help too. A heavier arrow will absorb some vibration too and also make it quieter.

Yes, I use them on all my limbs. (ILF)

Does it make a difference in sound? Not that I can tell.

For me, it's more about feel than sound. And by feel, I'm not talking about "hand shock," but the "buzz" that in my opinion is unique to metal risers. Hand shock is a whole different animal and limb savers aren't going to do much to alleviate it.

Some people are sensitive to the "buzz" and some people aren't. For me, I find that the Limbsavers take care of it nicely.

I've used them on ILF limbs,both kinds ,the old style and the new.To me it makes no difference. My Winex limbs do have a buzz to them that I think is the string vibrating ,getting louder as the temp.drops.Moleskin quiets it some. I tried some Carbon/woods that don't have it,much quieter.

put them on all my bows, quieten down any vibration, make bow quieter and yes brace height will effect vibration.
