    My bow is here, shot it today, all I can say is WOW!!! Smooth, fast, comfortable grip. Only question I have is seems the first 20 shots the bow was quiet, than seemed it got louder after release. The sound was like the string vibrating or a twang, any idea? Let me say this I now shoot a PSE Nova, and thats the only bow I've ever shot, and this Martin Bengal is three times the bow! Help me figure out how to quiet this sound after shot release. Thanks!

    I think the Paradigm CTA string suppressor will take care of it (http://paradigmarchery.com/cta.html). I was studying on that noise last night while I was shooting. I have a Limbsaver S Coil on it which doesn't make one bit of difference. I shot with it on and off and there was no difference in noise level.

    My cable guide was noisy at first when it was brand new, but I took it off and very carefully rounded over the slot edges and checked to see if there was any other roughness. That made a big difference on the draw. If you do that, pay attention to how it sits on the rod and don't put it back on backwards. Didn't do anything to quiet the string twang though. I have the stick on Limbsavers that go on the limbs but haven't put them on yet. Doubt if they'll do anything but I'll try since I have them.

    Just waiting until I have the money to order the CTA.
