Yesterday was the first time i brought my new Onza 3 outdoors to our 3D archery course. The temperature was perhaps 25 degrees Fahrenheit.

I noticed the bow was relatively loud now, clearly louder than when I have been shooting it indoors (I have Slipjax dampeners on my strings). A distinctive popping sound. I wonder it the string stop could be the reason: if the rubber in string stop gets hard at low temperatures, this could explain the difference. With my Hoyt CRX 32, I have not observed similar behaviour. I could actually take the string stop of my Hoyt and test it with the Onza.

Comments/experiences?

If you are using the factory string stop bumper, you may want to change it out to one made by Limbsaver. I did this on both my Pantera and Onza and was very pleased with the results. The rubber is much softer and it has more surface area.

Yes, I am. Thanks for the response!

You mean this product? http://www.limbsaver.com/archery/decelerator.php And did you choose the lower version (mods only) and attach it to the existing rod?

Have you observed differences in cold weather?

Yes, I just removed the factory bumper and replaced it with the limbsaver on the same rod. I cant say that Ive noticed alot of change while shooting in cold weather.........however cool clear air would help to enhance the sound of the bow.
