Loud Bow??

Recommended Posts

LuciandTim

Its been about three years since I shot and I feel like my bow is loud. If you can please watch the below video and let me know what you think.

Also, what can I do to make it quieter? What works and why?

Thanks!

LimbSaver and other similar companies have soooooo many products out there that claim to decrease the twang/vibration of your bow and I believe they absolutely help! I am currently shooting a Hoyt bow and as you may or may not know Hoyt has split limbs so i have the AlphaShox limb silencers to help out with unnecessary limb vibration. I also have a set of string leeches that seem to help. There are also sights, rests, quivers, and stabilizers on the market that will greatly reduce the amount of vibration during and after the shot.

Also, is your bow a little older? with all of the new dampening systems added on the newer bows nowadays seems to really quiet those bows up.

But, if your looking for a fairly easy fix to your noise problem I'd recomend buying a quality LimbSaver stabilizer, string leeches, and if you currently have one of those peep sights with the rubber hose connected to it, replace it! those hoses make soooo much noise!

P.S, It would also help if you posted up a picture of your bow so we could better get a idea of how to tune up your bow. laugh.gif

There are many things you can do to quiet your bow. First we need to know what kind of bow you have with what kind of silencing equipment on the bow. Do you have a peep aligner? I think those things make noise.

I have an STS, cat whiskers, limb savers, a s-coil, and shoot heavier arrows. All of those things help.

First thing I would do is to check and make sure that all your assc. that bolt on are tight. I had this problem and after checking all my add ons to make sure they were still bolted tight I took it to a pro shop. I needed a few parts that were wore out to be replaced.

LImb savers and such will help but may not be the only issue that you may have to deal with.

How about a pict of you shooting the bow.. So we can see what you already have in place to keep your bow quiet?

Actually I stripped the bow. All that is on it is the sights and the arrow rest. I guess my best bet would be to just bring it into the shop.

I guess my question is what has worked best for you? And how quiet can you get a bow to shoot??

I had a problem with noise a few years back and did the same thing you have done. Then, when I took off my arrow holder I found the problem. I had a noise out of arrow holder.

Could be maybe.

Taking off the string bats and putting on catwhiskers made a pretty big difference for me. Catwhiskers get rid of the twang much better. Shooting a heavier arrow makes your bow quieter too. The limbsavers and some stabilizers will take away vibration.

Most bows can be made pretty quiet if they are tuned, all components are tight and you have the proper silencing stuff.

I work for a few days here but as soon as I am done I am going to put everything back on the bow. I bought some new stuff from the shop and hope things quiet down a bit wink.gif

We'll see.....

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
