Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works but installation video and instructions poor I realize how important a quiet bow is from over 50 years of hunting with a conventional bow. With a recommendation from the TenPoint sales person I ordered the Sound Dampening System (SDS) to come with my already fairly quiet Turbo GT. I wanted to maximize noise reduction to reduce the chance of a critter jumping the string on longer shots and to minimize the chance of other nearby critters hearing the shot and spooking. The SDS does a great job of this. My problems started with it's installation. I watched the installation video on the TenPoint web site several times and read the instructions that came with the SDS. Both stated that the adaptor blocks that come with the SDS were not needed when installing on a TenPoint crossbow. After better than an hour of trying to get the SDS installed and aligned properly and doing some minor cosmetic damage to my bow I called TenPoint technical support. I was told that the black adaptor blocks are, in fact, needed for my Turbo GT. With using the blocks I was able to install the SDS. My next problem was that after shooting the bow I noticed that the string was no longer touching the Rubber Dampeners. This continued to happen even after tightening the cap screws and adjusting the dampener rods and tightening their set screws numerous times. Finally, frustrated I called technical support once again. They told my that the dampener blocks should fit flush against the bow riser. This was news to me as the video didn't say or show that. Also when installed this way the dampener rod has to be screwed out so far that the set screw inside the front block boss just touches the end of the rod. The support guy said this was not a problem. It would have been nice and saved me a lot of time if the video and/or instruction manual included information regarding these to problems.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't fit This product is listed to fit the wicked ridge invader by ten point. If you try to install it you must cut the aluminum rods off 1/2 inch for it to fit. If you go through all this trouble it works pretty well after that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive Dampener with Dramatic Effects I purchased this string dampener after using my TenPoint for two years. The installation was easy and dampener works incredibly well. It is amazing how much it quiets the crossbow. So much so that a miss does not always equate to a running deer but rather an alerted deer that will settle down in little while. Just don't move.!!! Once it settles down then recock with your crank AccuDraw (love this thing) and hopefully try again. The dampener is the best accessory you can add to your TenPoint.

Does the SDS work on a Stealth FX4. Also on installation video there seems to be questions on black string guides whether to use them or not. And maybe some grinding of metal for fit on bow.

Asked by: Utah
The SDS will work on the Stealth. Some bows do take a black or grey adaptor, depending on the model. Some bows do require the rods to be shortened. There is no grinding, but a couple of the bows do need the rods shortened. The rods have a groove cut in them so it is easy to cut them with a hack saw.

Which crossbow system reduces noise the most, your String Dampening System, or your Noise Dampening Package?

Asked by: MrMan
Using both the SDS and BowJax is the best, but if picking one, the SDS does more noise and vibration dampening.
