I’m going to have to try that and Rudy’s trick with the plug and the Velcro dots on the limb. That Thunderbird shoots well, but it’s really quite loud. I am hoping that a new string with better fitting loops will help… At least until I get comfortable twisting up my own…

So… Quick update on the status here. Hi (almost) literally threw a pair of these together the other day on a rush basis trying to get to the range, and the difference that they made was simply astonishing versus a bare, dacron string.
I will have to try again to button them up a little bit more, but it would be a gross understatement to say that they vastly explore seated my wildest expectations.
Just in case anybody is wondering, I placed them at 1/3 and 1/4 of the total string length.
Pardon my ignorance, but the 16 strand count is this like 8 pcs. Of yarn on top of the earplug and 8 on the bottom? This seems like a great idea and I want to try it out.
The way mine are done is: 5 strands of the green on one side, 5 strands of black on the other side, and 6 strands of the orange at center. I put the ear pugs is the center of the orange with 3 strands on top of the plug, and 3 strands on the bottom.
The ear plugs are laid in parallel to the stands, then I tie it all together at the middle before putting in in the string.
I don't tie them into the string. I just untwist the string where I want the silencers to go, then let the string twist back up on to them, and they stay put. On an endless string, you might have to tie them in.
