I've always thought my patty is really quiet. The only thing that I have changed was the spider looking rubber things on the string mysteriously broke off and I replaced them with $0.99 rubber tie-on string silencers. I think the cheep silencers that I have on there know actually do a better job than the orginal hush kit string silencers.

I never really thought about how quiet the Patty, and everyone has always had "Holy **** that is a quiet bow" reaction when I shoot it.

Not that it needs it but I put a set of Limbsaver Ultras in addition to my factory limb silencers. It made a little difference. I also ditched the factory string silencers and put on some leeches along with a set of cat whiskers cut down to about the size of golf balls. It too helped but actually the factory hush kit works pretty darn well.

You could try using some of the ultra limb savers. Sims also has noise and vibration dampeners for nearly every area of your bow. I use limb savers, cable slide dampener, stabilizer enhancer on front of stabilizer, and one in the rear hole, and the insulation strip that adheres to the front of the grip. You could use heavier arrows. Put fleece on your rest, sight window, etc. My bow is a little heavy, but whisper quiet.
