One of the biggest issues with crossbows is the noise. I’ve personally had deer jump, duck, or spin away from the shot from a loud crossbow. So I wanted to do something about it and this Suppression Kit from LimbSaver seemed to be just the ticket. I thought it was anyway. Check out the video and see the digital results and hear for yourself the before and after.
This deer season I am going to be strictly a crossbow hunter as I had to start physical therapy for a bum shoulder. I have an old 1st Gen Horton Havoc but it’s very loud and as I mentioned above, I’ve had deer jump the string because of it. So I searched locally for a good deal on something different. I found this Excalibur GRZ2 crossbow on Craigslist for a great price (after some haggling) so I had to get it. But after a few shots, I quickly realized, it’s not very quiet either. Although it is quieter than the old Horton.
After searching online, I found that Excalibur makes a noise suppression kit for this crossbow. But it was expensive and I am not one to spend a lot of money on this stuff. So I kept searching and found this Crossbow Suppression Kit from Limbsaver. It had some good reviews, Limbsaver is a name we all know, and it was cheap. So why not give it a shot.
I was excited to try this kit and was also excited to test it compared to a bare crossbow for the sound range. But, my excitement quickly turned to disappointment after taking a couple of shots with the Limbsaver kit installed. Seeing it and hearing it for yourself is the easiest way to explain. Check out the video.
