Here's what I did with my GT500 to help deaden the sound from the string stop rod.
- take a piece of scrap string leech, bowjax, etc.
- remove string stop rod
- cut scrap from leech, bowjax, etc down to fit inside hole in string stop rod base and push it in
- reinstall string stop rod
I didn't take my stop rod off for the pics because it wasn't moving easily so I left it as is. But you get the idea.
I can't say I noticed much of a change from it either. I read about somebody doing and felt I had nothing to lose.
For those waiting I got the GT back today and have not got to shoot her yet. But here is a pic of the bowjax installed, and as promised as soon as I get some time I will shoot the with and without video for comparison.

Try a Dead end on any Elite bow with a Hitek or bowjax stopper. The carbon rod and the way it's made gets rid of that thunk sound.
Probably the earliest flyswatters were nothing more than some sort of striking surface attached to the end of a long stick.2013 Ninja Answer a.k.a. "Darth", 50lbs 29" ,GT Velocity Pros, Limbdriver, Spot Hogg Real Deal, Doinker Stab, Slick Tricks.
