    ... also I would definitely put more of a gap between the string and the STS, also I would definitely check the screw holding the STS. You may also want to change to a different shape rubber bumper on your STS, most of the bows I have heard with the style you have were louder than normal, my firecat included, after changing to the newer rubber bumper and checking all screws (they were good), the noise went away. Hope this helps.

    I would be interested to see if shooting a heavier arrow combination helps. If you have available to you, give it a try. Just for the H/// of it.

    Hawg, I have to commend you. You're actually learning how to read dates. Only thing is, GD already mentioned that this thread is two years old, so I'm sorry, this one doesn't count.

    Hawg and AS...keeping score?
    I'm glad to be the source of the Ha Ha, but don't tell my wife. She is always saying I don't pay attention and she sure doesn't need anymore proof.

    I'm guilty of that, too. She tells me something and it's "in one ear and out the other". Probably because it's not archery related.
