Hello, I am new to the forum and new to crossbows! I have been looking at all my options. I have noticed that Ten point bows do not come with any string stops or string silencing components. They sell them as kits or accessories. Even their $1,000 bows. I was just curious as to why they take this approach as I see most other companies including these string stops
And silencing components already on the bow. I am really interested in the M370! thank you in advance.

Many of the TenPoint bows have traditional or integrated string dampening (Nitro, Stealth, Shadow, Vortec and RDX 400). The most cost effective bows in the lineup have it as an accessory option (SDS or SDR). The slip in string silencers, retention silencer, limb silencers and foot stirrup silencers have commonly been add-on accessories until recently where "whisper" versions of xbows are being offered with all the noise and vibration treatments. You will see this most commonly on xbows made in the ROC and sold here in the US.

Thank you for your reply! Do most people buy them?
I believe the string dampners are a value point more so for reducing vibration than noise. I would add it to a bow like the M-370. BTW, I think that xbow is a real winner.

On my bows I added the string stops to reduce vibration. I don't really think the rest of the stuff works and wouldnt spend my money on it but that's JMO...

Yea.....I think it changes that "twang" to more of a "thud" since it helps stop the string much quicker. IMO noise is something you cannot do a whole lot about. But theyre fast enough that the deer dont get much of a chance to worry/complain about it either. Good luck picking you a xbow.:)

I use the SDS on both of my TenPoints. After watching the YouTube video showing how violently the string reacts during the shot sequence I won’t be without one.
I use no other add on’s, imo trying to silence a crossbow is just an exercise in futility and not worth the expense or effort.

Guys, thanks so much for helping a newb. I see wyverns creations has a good deal on the M370. Can speak to the scope that come on it?
X2 on checking with Dave at Wyvern on the M-370 package.

The standard Optic is good quality but it's not a speed compensating scope nor does it have illumination. Dave has the Hawk XB1 Scope option and his Ravin Take-Off is another consideration. I'd choose the XB1 with the M-370.

Good luck!

Does anyone no if shipping is free?
His "package deals" often are but you need to verify that with him. I've bought two packages from him and shipping was part of the deal but I'm sure that's a point you should verify.

Illumination is nice but not required. I recently added an older bu new Excalibur DeadZone speed scope. I have no issues using it without illumination so I bet the basic scope on the M370 will do just find in that 20-40 yard range. Nothing automatic about shooting and hunts. Both require lots of time to deliver results.
