Hoyt Shooters/Side mount STS?

8 posts in this topic

Anybody out there put the new STS side mount system on their hoyt?... I am thinking I want to do this, but always nice to hear from someone who has done it that it works like it says?

DD, I haven't seen the side mount- what's the scoop with that. I had an STS on my '05 Protech, but that was the original STS- mounted in the front just behind the stabilizer. How's the sidemount work?

Scooter--I think its pretty much the same system... But I wasn't interested in mounting off the front... Many of the STS systems are now rear mounted as new bows have a bushing for STS systems now... My bow being a 2005 model doesnt have the extra bushing... STS is now making a system for 2007 that mounts on bows like mine that uses one of the holes and mounts off the side of the bow.

scoots- do a google search for side mount STS and you will see what I am talking about.

Gotcha- I see. Mine mounted in front. Looks to be about the same deal though. Sorry, I'm no help in answering your question though.

Eye- string vibration... supposedly it quiets your bow quite a bit...

Sure made a difference on my last couple bows. Both were good without, but great with the STS.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!

      Trout fishing thru the ice is a blast!!!   Their hits are usually aggressive like that, makes it exciting. They put up a pretty good fight too.
