I recently picked up a Switchback and it is very loud. I put a Dead End on it and it helped some, but it is still pretty loud. I have checked everything to be sure it is tight and it is. It is a loud thump. It also has alot of hand shock and vibration as well. From everything I have read this is very uncharacteristic of this bow. Anything I could check for myself? This is my first Mathews and so far I am not too impressed but want to give it a fair shot. I am shooting 60/29 with a 400 grain arrow.
I think Neil is spot on. I have shot a S2 for a few years and whenever I had a problem it was due to “out of spec.”,same with my DXT. It is easy to do if you have a press and you will notice a great difference when your bow is right. A little time at the shop can reap great benefits. The Switchback is one of the better shooting bows Mathews has ever made and you should not be having this problem. Get er tuned.
