Wondering what you guys with experience silencing hangings thought of using this felt weatherstripping tape for quieting your stands? Sorry don't know how to post a pic so just copy and pasted the website and product

Never mind thought it was tape backed, just read product description and says it had to be nailed in place

I am another stealth strip user here. The quality of the adhesive on stealth strips i would bet is superior to that.

x2. If you do it the the right way (stealth strips) you only have to do it once. The adhesive and the material on the stealth strips is very tough.

How about this one?



That would probably help to some degree, the only question I have is how well does it stick? You might find yourself replacing it frequently.

The great thing about Stealth Strips is they dampen sound, are thin and they stay in place once stuck. I've had my sticks wrapped since 2012, between 20-40 hunts per season and they are still going strong.

I have tried everything from camo/hockey tape to adhesive neoprene.

Paracord and stealth strips are the way to go for certain.

Stealth strips FTW

I had to spend some time cutting them for my LW setup, but the finished product is beyond quiet. I am confident in the woods that stand and stick noise is not going to be a problem.

Great products.
