    I noticed string leeches are becoming more popular. So I bought some the other day. But I also heard that they tear up easy, what do you think.

    I can't say I have never used one on my bow. I don't know anyone that has sorry I couldn't help.

    What kind of bow are you going to put them on? The results will vary depending upon the bow. You're likely to see a larger difference on older model bows than newer ones. If they are tearing up really fast then that is a good indication that you might have a tuning problem.

    I have them on my bow and they do help. Not tons but some. For how long they last I havent had any go bad on me. They are good for I think a 1000 shots or something like that.

    I have Simm's stuff all over my bows. I have had the leaches fly out and break in two.

    They seem to help a little but I think they are over priced.

    The spiders work pretty well and are cheaper.

    i use them they work well on my reflex. they will tear not from shooting as much as they will going through alot of thick stuff like cut overs. i would say try them and base your own opinion. thats how i find stuff that works best for me.
