    Took the bow in to set it up today and it was a little on the strong side. Tipped the scales at 76 pound draw and ATA & brace were way off. After a lot of untwisting we managed to get it to 72 pounds, 7.2 brace, and 32 5/16 ATA. I have to say I wished I would have discovered single cams a few years ago. I love the Acu Trak cam, the draw is as smooth as my 360 at 66lbs. The Ridge Hunter is a dream to shoot, it is lighter than the 360 by almost a full pound. Not as quiet as I'd like but it will get there. Going to sight the rest of my pins in tomorrow, should be able to see if it's as fast as I hope it will be.

    Got home late so didn't get pics of the setup but here are the results.

    Did some comparison shooting today between the 360 & Ridge Hunter, so far the 360 is ahead. I put limbsavers right below the split on the inside of the limbs, put the TRG in it's propper place & put a slide and Saunders on it, replaced the string stop bumper with a McDaddy. It is still loud. I have rechecked everything, ATA, brace, no cam or idler lean, no cracks, nothing loose. I backed off the limb bolts one turn at a time and shot it each time till it was three full turns out and it didn't change much. Moved the string stop against the string, slightly back so a piece of paper slides under it, and 1/8" away from the string. Still too loud for my liking. Hate to say it but if I can't get a grip on it, it will find a new home.
    Where do I go from here?

    Try putting whiskers on the string.

    I forgot to list that, they're on. It's kinda like a "whack".

    Add about ten twists to the string and remove five from the cable to advance the cam. See if this helps.

    Will try it out Sunday. We had to take alot out of the string to get it in spec, ata was out 1/2" and draw weight was 76 pounds.

    I don't understand what advancing the cam will do to help quiet it, please explain.

    Ouch! 1/2" out and 76 pounds gotta love it. Well NN good things take time. When I got my Bengal it took time to quiet it down. Now I know the ins and outs of the bow its seems so simple.
