    My extreme just started making a terrible metal on metal clank at the shot. Ive tightened every allen head screw on the bow and etc to make sure its was nothing lose on the bow or any of my accessories.  Ive never heard this kind of noise before. Its loud at the shot and almost scary to shoot. Any opinions could be very helpful?????

    Could have a bad bearing in the idler wheel or cam. Have to take it to a retailer and have them take a look at it.

    I had a similar noise (maybe not as loud) with my Z7 Xtreme. After much fussing around with the bow, I suggested to the dealer that the idler wheel bearing was faulty. Sure enough, it was. Once replaced (under warranty of course) it was as quiet as a church mouse (not that I’ve actually ever seen a church mouse, but you get the idea).
    We've taken far too many pucks in the head.
