Was wondering if anyone has replaced the factory sts on a '08 Firecat . I can not keep the set screw tight after several shots it is loose. Keep hoping this is were the noise from the bow is coming from.
Was thinking of taping out the hole to recevie the bolt for an "STS ". Would also assume this will void any warrenty. If this is impractical would go to a front mount.
Any comments?
Thanks
Roger

You can use some Loctite to fix the screw - there's a gel type which will work well i think.

I had the same problem with my STS coming loose on my Martin Hone Hunter (Cheetah), I ended up using loctite on the set screw, it hasn't come loose since.

Yes, go ahead and use Loctite, but use the blue stuff in a red container. The number is 242. This will allow you to loosen it at some later date if you so desire.
