    thats interesting, because i have an exile and at one point was thinking of going to the sts instead. I have had no problems with my trg/sos so im not changing it, but im interested to see how this turns out. i take it martin knows you have an exile when you requested the sts right, if they were thinking they should have known whether or not they would fit. the 2011 exile is my first martin bow so off the top of my head I cannot tell you whether or not an sts will fit

    Some people have had some trouble getting the rod to fit because of the film dip inside of the rod hole, clean it out, should have no problem. If you do, someone here will have an idea or two to help you out.

    I'm fighting (what I consider) a loud noise on the shot of my bow. I think I have it figured out and it is the STS is not tight enough and thunks. The problem is the screws are bottomed out and I can't do anything about it. I tried adding some tape to my STS but then it gets too tight and is hard to get the STS in the slot. It will quiet it for a little bit and then it comes back. I will call Martin about it but not until after hunting season because I'm not going to send it back during the season as it is the only bow I have.

    Are the screws bottoming out because the threaded hole in the STS is too short?? If this is the case why not fit a spacer to take up the slack & also remember to apply locktight thread compound before securing.

    Try changing out the 4way bumper for a BowJax MacDaddy. The 4 way is a relativley hard rubber compound that will create the thunk you are talking about, I've found the BowJax will usually quiet things down, next choice would be the LimbSaver string decelerator.

    Guys,

    The screw heads are bottoming out and can't go deeper to grip the rod. The rod is loose and you can move it. The string slapping the rubber stopper moves the rod which in turn moves in the slot and results in noise. This noise didn't exist when I had the TRG installed.

    Seems like an easy fix, get something to put between the screw head and the rod or file down the screws then clean up the threads. Maybe shorter screws also.
