Well for three days I had been trying to figure out where in the heck a buzzing noise was coming from on my 2013 Bengal. After making sure all attached accessories were tight, bumping the bow with the palm of my hand and placing my ear next to every component I finally isolated the problem. So if you have a buzzing noise and can't quite figure out where it is tighten these a tad and you problems are solved. No noise now. Bow is very quiet now on release. Same issue on my Silencer got it silenced too.

Had to do the same thing to my Cougar last week. Had a cam bolt loosen up too. Never again though. (THE POWER OF LOCK TITE)

Never had that problem before, but it's good to know just in case. Now I'll check mine just for the heck of it.

Simple fix for me and Barry. I'd just turn down my hearing amplifier and he could turn down his hearing aids ;)

This was covered awhile back in depth. Search for a thread " screw was loose". What you see there is a rivet bolt. That reminds me come April 1st some better be on the look out.:p

Found it thanks. I think it's great you can call those guys and get parts without having to go through a dealer like most of the other manufacturers. Been there done that. :cool:

They do use loc-tite when assembling them. Rarely do we ever receive a complaint about there being a problem with them.

When did it go from "served" to "owned"? Guess I lost my hippness.

Just an FYI......If you get caught out in a situation without any locktite handy, a bit of bowstring wax on the screw threads will accomplish a lot.

Using string wax on the threads of your field points is a huge help in keeping them from coming loose. I give my field points and broadheads a little.

That's OK that you do, because many of us have a few screws loose anyway.:D:p

You brought up a good tip too by the way.
