    Default sts issue,i think

    i had the sts and ccs instaled sometime ago when i had my stock string on and it all lookd good.now i have w.c. and the sts is touching the string,i pushd it back as far as it can go.now i dont know if this is true or not but from what i understand the sts needs to be backd off the string a 1/16 of a inch or so.is this true.if so do i need to cut it a bit to back it off

    Most that I've read about say credit card width from string at rest to just barely touncing, so yeah sounds like you'll need to bust out the ole hacksaw once again and 'Fine" tune your STS.

    Sounds to me like you need a bigger hammer. LOL. Yeah the old hacksaw trick works well. I actually use a grinder for such things. Don't forget to chamfer the end.

    So you put on a new string and now it is hitting the STS, sounds like your bow's brace height has decreased, the string is longer than before. I'd check and make sure everything is in spec before you cut or grind anything.

    Welcome CaptJJ! And I agree DON'T CUT IT OR GRIND IT TILL YOU CHECK TO SEE IF THE SPECS ARE RIGHT. If they are then proceed. I myself have the same bow and have found it to be more quiet just barley touching.

    i will for sure check all specs when i get home tonight.as for quit,i cant tell yet.they did not put string silencers on it.i am looking around to see what will let me keep my fps and still be quiet.i did take about 50 shots at the shop befor i left and its loud.just a thunk sound.the string was up to specs.they wrote everything down as they mesured and instaled.i will double check everything befor i start hacking away.
    im glad i asked for help first.im the kind of guy who will do then ask what went wrong.good thing for all of yall

    Isn't there a set crew or two to hold the rod in position? If so, then cutting provides better adjustment range...
    Then maybe that mallet can remain on the bench.

    You need to use string silencers. I used cat whiskers in the small form. And it doesn't take away that much speed. It does take away the noise. I have the same bow and spent quite a few days to get it quiet. Now it is great to shoot and not here the tuning fork sound.
