    well first off was this guy a "other bow shooter" and just giving you a hard time because of your martin.i have had people do the same to me just trying to mess with me head.but how is your cam timing,are your silencers tied in good,if not go get some cat wiskers,all i have is cat wiskers and sts and im quiet.check all bolts make sure ther ther nice and tight,wax your string,and make sure your string isnot bouncing off you sleave when you release it makes a nict thump sound

    Im sure others will chime in soon, but make sure all your bolts are tight so that nothing is rattling around and make sure your cam timing is spot on. That can make things loud. Try adjusting your string supression system and see if it quiets down.

    Don't listen to somebody that makes a comment like that. If he wants to be helpful he should help you traack down the source of the noise. Now let's get to it. Just what bow is it and how is it set up. List all accessories, arrows and all the details. Many times it not so much the bow but the accessories so we need it all. Bow weight, draw length. Everything.

    Ha Ha, would you look at this. Two guys sitting around like vultures waiting for you to post more so they can jump in. Welcome fellows. Take over for the night. I gotta get up at 5:00 so I'm going to bed.

    I'll just sign off with the idea that it's cam timing or light arrows.
