otter fur silencers work very good on longbows.just start them below your loop and wrap them down and tuck it back in.and use the wool puffs as above.you wont have any noise.

they hold up better than other fur.even the wool puffs hold up really good.in the fall the little deggers lice [burrs] stick in them.but they stick to everything.

Great tutorial.
I've had 2 and still own one of your previous bows and wondered how you made the strings so smooth.
Now i'm just waiting for one of your custom made bows!!!!!!!!!!!! 52# @28
