Default silencing my new bow

i am getting a new bow, its a bear instinct,i shot it yesterday, and its is pretty quiet, but i would like to see if i could silence it more, it comes with leeches and limb dampners, but i heard that the leeches make it have more hand shock is it true? if it is is there another good string silencer?
What about a sts? how much are they?
thanks

Thanks. do you know anything about the little bit of hand shock thing, it isnt bad but if its not too expensive i would like to get rid of it, it could also be the rest i was using with it at the shop. i will have to try shooting it some more again i guess.

The modern day sts systems(MEANV)will make your bow feel much more "dead" in the hand when you shoot.Shooting heavier arrows will help with sound and feel also,but today nobody wants to give up ANY speed at all.

Can't add anything to whats been said about MeanV's product but I'm going a different direction with arrows than what salesmen offer,they read in the books and follow their chart and sell you what they have for arrows.I have the meanV2 suppressor and am going to get help with my FOC on arrows,I want to be able to penetrate game and be silent,a fast arrows being quite maynot get to vitals,don't think game will notice a few feet per second flight time.I like the way MeanV2's fit verses the STS,Iput his on the Bowtech but may get another for the Diamond in the future.
