This bow would be VERY quiet, except it has always made a metallic sound when shooting. It’s not a rattle, but more of a “whack” kind of sound. I have checked everything that bolts on this bow and have never found anything loose.
I shoot a whisker biscuit rest, it has Limbsaver stick on dampeners on each limb, and I think limbsaver “Z” shaped rubber string dampeners on each end of the string, as well as a stabilizer. It’s the one that looks like a rubber covers coil spring, sorry can’t remember brand.
There is a dampener in the cam, and one on each end of the riser, all factory, and all appear to be tight.
I even made a string stop dampener that screws into the belly of the riser, with a rubber foot to stop the string.
All these things help the other normal bow sounds but I cannot pinpoint the metallic sound. Is it noise from the cam and idler with the string coming to rest? This thing would be almost noise free without that one sound. Especially when shooting heavy arrows.
I have a homemade version of the Dead End on my bow already, it’s soft and absorbs vibes very well, but didn’t help this problem. I haven’t got to the bow yet and will check the clips but its a sharp sound not a buzz.
It’s going to be tough to figure out I think. I may end up making a shooting machine so I can listen to the bow instead of shooting it.
