I put a HHA OL-5500 1 pin sight, a QAD Ultra-Rest Pro-Lock Down Fall-Away Rest, and a Lore Deluxe Stabilizer on it. So far so good.

Wayne very impressive set up and you got to be proud of those groupings. Any tighter and you'll be Robin hooding a couple of them :lol: Nice shooting. Your confidence has to be right there with them now.

Nice set up Wayne. :)

I highly recommend you install a string loop on that bow. Short axle to axle bows like the Tribute really benefit. Your first couple groups are decent but they are showing signs of stringing vertically. At 30yds it will be real noticeable. A string loop will definately help tighten that up. Don't put a metal loop on there if you value the life of your components.

You also might eventually want to consider replacing the Stabilizer with an STS. They are lighter than Stabilizers and in my experience they improve accuracy to the point you don't need one ;)

Sorry Wayne didn't mean to side swipe your thread - Leo that's what you're referring to. Are they fairly quiet? The string slapping it has to make noise doesn't it?

No problem Rowdy. Thanks for the advice Leo. The release I am using, and really like is tough to use on string loop unless it real stiff. I am using the Winn Archery Glove style. It closes with forward pressure. Have thought about the STS, but it will have to wait until after vacation. Sweety has put the anchor out if you know what I mean. :lol: :lol: Of course forgiveness is usually easier than permission. :thumbsup: :D

I took my string silencers OFF shortly after I installed the STS. The bow got QUIETER.

The less stuff on your string the better they work.

Too bad about the loop conflict with the release Wayne. My Fletchunter is a push to close too, but it's not that tough to hook on with practice.

However, I do seriously like the looks of Carter's Quickie. It will be my next release, pretty sure.

Leo, I brought it to the wife's attention tonight that I would be "needing" the new STS Double in the near future. Didn't get much response so I'm taking it as a yes. :yes: I was wondering about the string silencer removal. STS says to do it but I wasn't sure. Thanks.

Hey Wayne,

Just to get you in more trouble. I found out the Winn Release now has a "Hook" model designed specifically for string loops :)

Same release only it hooks on the loop instead of push to close.

And BTW I did get the Carter Quickie I buckle strap model. Very nice :)
