The string stops are to reduce vibration after the shot. With out them, if one could watchCan string stoppers be added to an xp370? It shoots great as is, what’s the major benefit of them?
a video in slow motion, the bow string vibrates until it comes to rest is unreal. The bow
string path starts out fairly wide and gradually gets narrower until it comes to rest.
My crossbows are set with a slight gap between the string and the stops when the crossbow
is in the uncocked position. Other wise when the crossbow is shot it is like running into a brick
wall. Some stops are designed like a shock absorber and will collapse. If you look at the rubber
stops that have a vertical hole, that is the way they are designed. Others are very soft rubber.
Some of the string stop rubbers are poor quality where they appear not properly cured and will
turn mushy and split. I ran into this problem with the Ten Point System when I modified that system
to fit my Barnett Ghost 410 crossbows. I had to go to a better quality rubber stop.
One wants a string stop system that is adjustable due to the way a crossbow can be tuned.
Lessening the axle to axle measurement due to either adding twists to the bow string or advancing
the cams by adding equal 1/2 or full twists to the single loop end of the cable that goes on to the lobe
of the cam will lessen the axle to axle measurement. Either of these adjustments places the bow string
farther from the string stops.
If the XP370 has holes drilled and tapped on the side of the riser, one may be able to add the bow
Wishing you all the best.
