New Bengal Pro - Adjustments/ noise
Hello from Austria!! (-> warning: non-native-english-speaker)
I finally got my new bengal pro and im loving it!!!
This is my first martin (i shot a hoyt rampage xt before) and i have two questions:
1. What exactly is over-rotation and when does it occur?? Do you over-rotate the cam if you dont coordinate the draw lenght with the draw stop?? (For example using 26'' and moving the drawstop-peg all the way to +)
Is this cam set correctly??
2. Why is my bow so loud? Im using string-silencers but the bow makes some strange (metallic?) sound when i shoot it.. I heard that this could be caused by over-rotation?!

1. Your cam is advanced because of the -10# peg.
2. Check all of your hardware to make sure it is all tight/snug (mod screws).
thank you for your answer!!
i will set my bow to 70 pounds asap! what is an advanced cam?
when set at stnd-peg i will have to move the module to position 1 if i want to maintain the current draw length (~27''), is that correct? im a noob!
i believe everything is tight but theres still a bit of noise.. but actually i dont really care about that very much, i just want to make sure that theres is no (noisy) malfunction that could cause damage to my beloved bow!!

Advanced/Retarded cam position is the starting point of the rotation. The way yours is in the photo is advanced. Retarded would be the opposite.

Source of the noise will want to be found. Other thing to look at is if the limbs are fully seated into the rotocup. You can break the bow down and check that out and add a little grease to it if needed.
I see a couple of issues with your Bengal that you are going to want to fix before it shot again. the modules screws are supposed to be on both ends of the module not side-by-side as pictured. I'm sure the noise you're hearing is the module vibrating. There is a very good chance the cable could slip between the cam and mod the way it is. It will be an easy fix but you'll need a bow press to fix it. Why don't you go ahead and give me a call be more glad to help.
@ droppixel/themiddleman: thanks for your help!!!
@ themiddleman: i believe calling you is not a good idea because i live in vienna/ austria. -> phone-bill! besides i think my spoken english is quite a mess..
I listed the issues that i should discuss with the local dealer here in vienna:
1. Set the cable to stnd-peg (+ change module to #1 position) -> press
2. Change position of the module screws as far to the end of the module as possible (i think some module-screw positions are blocked at certain drawlength settings) -> press
3. ?? Please let me know if you can think of anything else!!
