    after talking with bob jenkins about this issue, this is what i found. there have been changes made to the creed cam which are on the creed xs cam and will be put on the creed when inventory of originals are gone. these changes are use of top hats over the bearings and teflon bushings between them and the limbs along with a bit more material in the cam itself. the buzz is coming from the slight misalignment of the cam in the limbs. on the original cam, there is a shim on one side of the cam under the bearing that can be switched to the opposite side by pushing out the bearings and reinstalling to improve alignment. it will be under the bearing that sticks out further in the cam. there are also .020,.040 and .060″ shims that can be gotten from dealer to fine tune this process.( by the way, this is the only cam that bearings can be removed without damage.) there is no difference in cam profile(draw curve) between original and xs cam, so, xs cam can also be a fix for the issue, which is going into the line at the factory anyway.

    Thank you, thank you. Finally have some answers instead of me thinking its just my imagination. I love everything about the Creed except that noise. Now I will like it even better once fixed. Do you think this will be covered as a warranty issue?

    +1; Finally some real useful information instead of denials and “mine is real quiet” posts and 2 locked threads on creed noise. Hopefully the dealers will have replacement parts on this soon. Thank you.

      if you are the original owner and bow is registered to you, warranty will be no problem according to bob.

    Great to know there’s a fix for this problem. Will the dealers receive a service bulletin or some sort of notice that there is a fix and there is an issue with some Creed? Sometimes it’s difficult to get something fixed if the dealer doesn’t ear or isn’t aware of the issue.

    if you tell dealer about it and have them call their rep in warranty, they will take care of you.

    the updated cam looks just like the xs cam. it has more material in it near the bearings, which have shiny top hats on the bearing, and more material up near the end of the ramp where the string comes off cam and heads up toward idler which has the simplex cam logo on it.
