Are you talking about the clips that hold the pins on the bow so they don't shift out?

no. they're at each end of each axle and,in this case,the roller guard. but the roller guard ones are ok.

Sell it and get are Martin!! Ha! ha! ha! Just had to say that! :p Have you tried some string wax? It is sticky enough to help from moving.

Without seeing it this is a shot in the dark. How about a dab of silicone/RTV over them? RTV is easily removable. Elmer's glue?

Hutch, ive still got my Cheetah. IF Martin reps could get some bows to the dealers, i may have bought one. but... PM headed your way in a minute

Mark, i was thinking bout RTV,but that seems to hold its odor for quite awhile.

Try the Elmer's glue. It dries clear and you can wash it off if you want to. At least you will know for sure if that will quiet it.

If you can take it off how about a piece of bike inner tube to dampen the sound.

E-clips are sized to the groove diameter and width. So unless the groove is worn and widened the e-clip should be the right size?

You have a good thought! Some fine thread, dental floss or fishing line might do the trick. You are just taking up any slack to stop the vibrations.

I'd stick w/ the dental floss or use peep serving. Carefully drop a little hot candle wax into the serving per layer. Won't hold moisture, no rust.

Silicon or a drop of hot melt. :)

what about popping the clip ,make a washer out of a clear coffee can lid, should snug it up ,should be able to take up the slack,

Another good idea, some bows have a thin plastic washer for that reason and it works really well! :)
