    Default Onza 3 problem. Advise needed

    Hey all. I've got an Onza 3 and when I'm pulling the string back it sounds like there is a creak sound (like you stepped on an old wooden board) coming from what appears to be the bottom cam. i've oiled it and still there. just wondering if anyone has the same problem and what they did to fix it.

    thanks in advance!!!

    does it happen everytime you draw? i noticed my cat doing once in a while after i messed with strings. but usually just once then it would stop. i think things were just settling in

    you checked the TRG/SOS connection? I had a creak going on it my Cheetah and thought it was coming from the pockets and it turned out to be the cable rod was a little loose. Just a thought.

    i will check that. positive it's coming from the cam but can never be too safe.. love shooting the onza but the little problems are making me think twice about it. it's chewing up strings pretty good. the cams are cutting the serving as well...

    Don't like the sound of that. Slowly draw the bow and have someone listen to bow in different places. If the strings are rubbing the side of the module/cam somewhere it could make that noise I guess. It might be coming from the limb pockets, an alignment problem. There is something definitely wrong anyway.

    And do a search too, there have been some good posts about bow noise here.

    Check the cams for burrs and tracking problems.Here is a link to MLN problems with serving being cut.

    my serving was being cut too, not as bad as MLN, but that all stopped when i switched back to a regular cable slide. the trg was actually pulling harder on my cables than a reg slide. that was causing all sorts of problems, much smoother now!
    call martin cs and see if they will send you a rod and slide and a sts. its worth the time and if you don't like it put the trg/sos back on
