Quite often so called super products usually command super prices; it tends to go with the territory! Not so Deben, and I take my hat off to them for their Whisper 130 and 180 moderators, which are well built, simple and highly effective, at a price that is near 50% lower than you might expect. The designations denote the length of the internal sound absorption chamber in millimetres so in actuality they measure 150mm and 200mm, 34mm in diameter including outer sleeve and weigh 114g and 147g respectively.
Manufactured from high grade, black anodised aluminium, further protection is furnished by a protective rubber sleeve. They use the standard ½x20” UNF thread form, but if you want one for an Air Arms rifle - such as the popular S400/410 series - they include a slide-on adaptor for fitting to the barrel’s spigot end.
Suppression is achieved by sets of conical baffles held in place with a removable rear end cap with O-ring seal. The 130 has two and the 180 three. In use the pair proved highly effective and even the shorter Whisper 130 will cut the mustard down range easily too and its perfect for carbine-sized guns.
FOR - Build quality and effectiveness
AGAINST - Nothing at all
VERDICT - A highly important product for the airgun hunter
