    Welcome to the forum! I have a 2010 Bengal and making it quiet is not an issue. The cam is the first thing to check to see if it is over or under clocked. Once the cam and all the specs are right on the bow, it will shoot as it is suppose to. Then adjust the STS a 1/16 of an inch from the string. Then experiment, mine is the most quiet when touching. After that make sure you have a heavy enough arrow. Also put limb savers on the limbs. And last cat whiskers on the string. And as far as a crack in the riser take it back to the shop and Martin Cs will take care of it.

    Welcome to the forum! I definitely agree with these guys the fracture you are looking at is where the top part of the riser attatches I have a 2010 bone hunter and it is pretty much the same bow and I also have that seem. Just cosmetic. As for the loudness I put on limbsavers on the limbs put the cat whiskers on the string and threw on an x coil and it quieted right down.

    Default 2010 Bengal Issues

    Thanks again to all for the great input. I've been busy trying to work on my bow and keep the bosses happy. Here is the update...BigRedHunter00 that is a great description of the noise. I tried a dampner on the rod and changed the slide. I believe the noise pitch changed some but can still be heard.

    Hutch can you give me a little more input on the cam. The gap between cam lobe and string measures appx.3/8". What else should I check?

    Smile 2010 Bengal issue resolved

    OK here's the scoop. After checking out the cam and specs as advised, I noticed the string in the top idler cam leaning way to one side. I adjusted the yolk of the cable by a couple of twists on the right side of the "Y" and it pulled the string into a much better trac on the wheel. Added string leaches to string and moved the Martin ones to the strings passing thru the cable slide. Noise is gone...Thanks to everyone. What a wealth of knowledge for us new Martin guys to tap.
