Hello,
I have a good friend that bought a 2012 Ridge Hunter last summer. He removed the dumb TRG from it and it took some work to silence it down, but it is really great now. At first it sounded pretty loud, but he added limbsaver buttons to the limbs, limbsaver string silencers, limbsaver stabilizer, and an STS (sts being the biggest difference). It now shoots nice smooth and quiet. His model is a 60 lb, turned down to 56 or so, and I can shoot the lights out with that bow. I would suggest this bow to anyone looking for a good deal, and a great quality bow.

thanksIt looks close to the Bengal and shoots like the Bengal. Smooth draw and add the right stuff it will be quiet.

Just make sure to get rid of the TRG if it has one. Martin probably will send you a standard cable guard.

Haven't been on here in a while and just got your message, this is how I got mine quiet.
First step was to put it in specs, it was way out.
TRG was replaced with a regular slide, I also put a slim Jax on it.
Swapped out the string slide for a Saunders Hyperglyde.
Changed out the factory string stop bumper to a MacDaddy, also a slim Jax on the rod.
Limbsavers on the inner limbs.
Heavy cat whiskers, no comments on the color!! I did this last fall & all the black and green were sold out.
6" Fuse Axium stabilizer, this stab rocks. Tested it against the other 4 that I have and it's clearly better.
It will get quieter with a custom string, something I plan to do this winter.

20 yards, when I was setting it up. It will shoot like that all day out to 40 then I guess I do something different. 45-70 yards goes to 3-5 inch groups. Maybe I just need to shoot these distances more.
