Default Which limbsaver?

I am in the process of setting up my new bow. Its a reflex grizzly (60-70) and so far have decided on a wisper bisquit rest, Impact Archery comet sight and it came with a 2 pc reflex quiver. I have also picked up a 6" stealth hunter ( thanks nubo) stabilizer and added some string silencers. Now I want to install a limb saver type of limb silencer. What do you guys use, is one type better than another? the sims is pretty well available every where but is there a "better" design? Hoyt has the ALPHA SOX which I would think fit my reflex also but these might be hard to get my hands on up here. Also what do you think of the rubber wrap type grip replacements. Was wondering if it might make the riser a little more comfortable in cold weather ( which we have lots of in Canada).

Had a Reflex so am familiar with the bow. Get the Alpha Shox. It is worth it. I shot the Hoyt Vtec and Xtec while looking to replace the Reflex. The Alpha Shox is very nice. You can get them right on Limbsaver.com. The Camo ones are $22.95 and black are $20.95(hunting buddy has Reflex Timberwolf and wanted them, so I looked).

TerryM, The Alpha Sox will work on your Grizzly split limb.
Check the link, if order-- it will take about 5-7 business days to get here.

ampahunter,
I see you live in Brampton. Where do you buy your archery gear? Are you familiar with Brampton Archery?

I dont use any type of rubber material when I am bowhunting. Rub your fingers on the rubber and smell them. They probably smell like rubber. The animals can smell it too.

The Alpha Sox are the one's I'd go with as well Terry they will fit your bow perfectly. Ampahunter [Keith] is very familiar with Bramton Archery he and Ray are best of friend's and Keith gave me a pass last season to get into the Fishing Show at the International center .I was able to spend the day with Keith and Ray and these guy's know their stuff when it come's to archery . Both great guy's willing to give you a hand any time .

By the way your more than welcome ,since you stole my 6" stealth I've been having bad bad dream's ,you've gotten yourself the best stab in the market ask Keith he's probably got 4or 5 of them himself .I'm patiently waiting for my 2 new Stealth's .

Alpha Shoxs are a very good choice for your split limb. However I would reccommend on waiting until later to install all of these noise/vibration damping accessories because with continuall shooting they will wear out and eventaully fall apart.

Wo-oh John, thanks for the credits, feels like I'm floating around here!!!
Unfortunately this year Ray's not going to be at the Fishing Show, prices continue to increase for the floor space, the volumes going to the show have dropped and with the opening of Bass Pro in Vaughn, things have changed a bit.
As for Jerry's Stealth Stabilizers, they do a pretty good job and Jerry is a great guy to deal with, so too are many other members of this board.
