I'm shooting my 82nd like Rob's, a MeanV and the standard stopper in place, dead quiet....But you still did a fine job !

Thanks!!! Mine is dead quiet too. The stock string stopper doesn't even have any effect on the bow once a lower string stopper is installed. It is just sitting there doing nothing but taking up space.

Email from my Bowtech dealer. Others on AT got the same reply from their Bowtech dealers,"
Bowtech will not sell any of the parts to convert a 2008 82nd into a 2009 version.
They say doing that would de-value the new 2009 models if it were that easy to upgrade.
They recommend just removing the top stopper and buying aftermarket for the STS.
Sorry, I tried."
So what if you damaged the roller guard on your 2009 82nd Airborne...wouldn't BowTech sell you a roller guard ?...I'm sure they would/should.
Your solution is to say you need the roller guard for an 09 Airborne...simple!
If being honest doesn't work, then it's obvious that they want you to be dishonest...seems like the only way it will work, UNFORTUNATELY!!!

My guesss would be that Bowtech won't send one to YOU because they have your warranty that shows them what type of bow you've got. If you call and say you need a roller for an 09 and they show in their system that you own an 08, they know what you're up too.

I would go to a shop and see if they'll be able to order one for you.

Why not do the $100 upgrade to an 2009? A one year upgrade for $100... pretty good deal. That's what I want for Father's Day.

The 09 does have laminated limbs. I replaced the rubber on the Short Stop and added a MeanV on the bottom. Super Quiet. It really impressed me all last summer and during the season as well.

THe Short Stop rpl. rubber is a great addition as it gives the string a flat place to land. The cost is very small for the benefit.

I was told the 08 has laminated limbs too, as the bows are identical. Is this correct?

Ask Pat, Bowtech Shooter, I think he'd know. I didn't think they were though. Heck, if you really want to know, just take a knife and shave off the first layer of camo!!!

You traded the Predator one or your stock one?

Ben, Actually both my 08's are gone. It was painful but I'm sure my new 09 Airborne 82nd will be sweet.

Actually the Sentinel is commanding a lot of my attention.
