anyone figure out how to reduce the pop the string makes when it hits the sos on the onza 3 ? mine sounds like a 22 rifle when i shoot it. other than that it is one of the best bows i've ever shot. very smooth draw and very accruate.

Replace with a STS rod mounded low. Martin sent me one. My cat seemed loud at the sos too. I think it is probably quiet for someone not shooting the bow but the sos is right at face level for the shooter so it seems loud. Anyway, the sts made mine quiet as can be.

I have read that if you put some foam strip insulation in the empty space behing the SOS and the rod it will mute the sound as well.

I personally think the sts looks better than the sos too.

Yeah, looks isn't the sos's strong point. Just keep in mind that no sts or stop can be completely silent. Having a string whack a piece of rubber at 300 fps is going to make some noise!
