I just replaced my tubed peep sight with a G5 meta 1/4'' peep sight on my Cougar. It has a 2004 riser with 2008 limbs, cables, and strings. When it had the tubed peep sight it was much quieter than what it is now. Since I put on the tubeless sight it has started to "buzz" when I shoot. It is quite a bit louder. Is there anything that I can do to fix this?

I went from a tubeless peep to a tubed one and thought mine got quieter. But heres something to chew on, if you are used to the little slap of the rubber tube, you may not have noticed the string buzz as much. Now that you dont have that "slap" from the tube, maybe you can hear the string buzz a little better. Just an idea, Im no pro, but makes sence.

The tube would take out some noise, a bit of vibration dampening. Using catwiskers? Personally think 1/4" is too big for the string, 3/16" is as large as I will go. If the peep has been tied in correctly, it shouldn't make anymore noise. Have you shot the bow without a peep?

yup I would say the rubber tube was sucking up a bunch of the vibration. add some string silencers and that should take care of it.
