Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does Exactly What I needed It To Do Knowing vibration is the curse of any crossbow, I added the SDS to my Turbo XL with hopes it would at least reduce the vibrations when I shot. I am really pleased to find the vibrations have been nearly eliminated. The SDS is going to add years of use to my crossbow, and it makes it even more enjoyable to shoot. After my daughters, my hunting partners, shot my crossbow, it wasn't long before I was installing them on their Wicked Ridge crossbows. The SDS may help a little with noise but it tremendous at reducing vibration. The SDS coupled with a silencing kit puts your Tenpoint or Wicked Ridge crossbow in a whole different league.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dampener is durable and effective I installed this string/noise dampener on my Turbo XLT crossbow and the effects were dramatic. When I got my Ten Point Crossbow it was my first crossbow and I never knew the noise that one would make. But, after installing the dampener system the impact to the noise reduction was dramatic. While I have yet to miss on my first shot (lucky), I am confident that the noise elimination is enough to keep from being identified by my game. I would highly recommend this string dampener for any Ten Point Crossbow. It also makes shooting the bow more comfortable with the vibration reduction.

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 5 out of 5 by from Quieted down bow I put it on the titan and its about as quiet as my bear compound bow

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.

Will this device work on a Horton Vision 175 crossbow?

Asked by: Bolt
It will likely NOT work. The SDS System has been designed to match the width of the cable slot and a range of string brace heights specific to TenPoint, Horton Crossbow Innvoations, or Wicked Ridge crossbows. The Vision 175 was not manufactured by TenPoint.

I have a six point defender CLS crossbow was wondering if this SDS works on my old tenpoint crossbow

Asked by: Ray2
This SDS System will work with your SixPoint crossbow, however you should place a note with your order requesting that the gray spacer blocks be included with shipment. You need the gray spacer blocks to mount the system in the split barrel design.

Will this work on the carbon elite xlt? Does it change anything with accuracy or just sound? I don't wanna mess with what's been working.

Asked by: Woffer
Yes - it will fit the Carbon Elite XLT. No - you will not see a difference in accuracy. You will definitely notice the difference in the sound of the shot.

Watched two different videos by Tenpoint-one says the new Turbo M1 needs the adaptor block and one says it does not? A little confused?

Asked by: moosehide
You should use the adapter blocks for the Turbo M1. Here is a link to the video for the SDS that fits the Turbo M1: https://www.tenpointcrossbows.com/videos/accessories/how-to-mount-the-tenpoint-string-dampening-system-hca-148-2225/

Does it fit the titan m1 does not seem to have enough rm between rail and string wont go short enough

Asked by: Jags123
The HCA-148 String Dampening System comes with two sets of dampening rods - one longer in length and one shorter. If you are mounting the HCA-148 to a Titan M1, you should use the shorter length rods. These rods are compatible with both the Titan M1 and Turbo M1 crossbows.
