Bearpaw Whisper String – More than Just A Name!

 

Bearpaw Whisper String
wallpaper-whisperstring-archery-girlThe Whisper String is convincing from the first shot: Whisper String – The Super String

Henry Bodnik’s personal bow string is a Whisper String, developed in collaboration with renowned American archers.

The Whisper String guarantees a fast arrow flight with an incredibly soft shot. The ends of the string are additionally reinforced and therefore protect your bow from damage. The Whisper String is created from three different materials which give it its specific qualities.

When tested with an accustic device (see below), the Whisper String completely convinced us as it was even queiter than a Fast Flight String with sting silencers attached, even though the Whisper String itself was shot without silencers!

We recommend the following number of strands:

All bows up to 40 lbs: 8 strands
All bows from 41 lbs: 10 strands

The string has a thicker center to ensure a tight fit of most standard nocks.

There are 3 important reasons for the new Bodnik Whisper String:

  • The new whisper-quiet hybrid string dims the unpleasantly loud shooting noise considerably
  • It is a powerful string with an ultimate “Fast Flight” performance
  • The Whisper String protects your bow and minimizes damage

At Bearpaw Products we really like to get to the bottom of things. Therefore, we sent Sandra Diroll and Markus Flach to Christoph Brandes’ Iguana Recording Studios to compare the Whisper String with other commercially available strings. Our technical analysis proved something very interesting: What exactly this is will be explained in detail in our video report. See for yourself how good the Whisper String really is!

To show you the difference between an already quiet Dacron string and the Whisper String, we depicted the audio deflection of the two strings below. For more detailed information, please follow the official Whisper String button in the navigation bar.

Brandy writes…
“Each string was briefly shot and tested with each bow and identical brace height. Speed measurements, different brace heights, arrow weights etc. were not the object of the project and would have skewed the results, it was only the sound of the respective bow / string combinations. The audio files each contain 3 tests with the respective string, as shown in the table. “Bow1″ consists of 3 shot Fastflight (Ff), 3 Shot Fastflight + Silencer (FfSil), 3 Shot Whisper-String (WS) and 3 Shot Dacron (Dac). The graphics show the envelopes of the shot noises. One shot per string sequence. Drain (string sliding over glove) and hits on the target I have also removed with regard to frequency analysis. In addition, there is a 3d frequency analysis. The possible resonance of the string is not included here, please listen to the audio files”.
