    Default martin cheetah click tink problem on full draw

    2009 martin cheetah. took some tension off limbs yesterday and have developed a "click" "tink" noise on the lower limb when i come to full draw. It is definitely audible and if i can hear it then the animals can hear it. don't know how to get rid of it. have adjusted the tension back and forth several times and nothing i do gets rid of the click. could this be a sign of limb fatigue because i shoot it at least 2-4 times a week for anywhere between 40-100 times

    Sounds like it may be in the roto cup since it didn't do it untill you changed draw weight. A couple other possabilities would be a cam bearing going bad or a bearing in the ccs if your bow is equipped with it.

    Have someone put their ear next to it when you are drawing it back. My sons bow clicked and it was the module clicking when he drew back. But an extra set of ears would help.

    I'm gonna guess your talking about the draw stop? If you are, then yes i would go get another plastic cap or you could use shrink tubing, the ones electricians use. Also is that "pad" thing still there on your limb? Could you post a pic?

    i think he meant limb bolt..... i guess you can make sure nothing is moving and look for interfereance. i would also try turning your bold back in one half turn and see if it ngoes away, and repeat. also just because, inspect the fork in your limbs regularly. getting them changed out it they crack is way better than catastrophic limb failure!!

    your right justin. it is around the limb bolt area.. best thing i can think of is take it to a pro shop and let them try and figure out if it the bolt or the limb. thanks to everyone for the info, really appreciate. great forum
