Loud Damn Bow

Postby Fuzzy Dog » Wed Nov 23, 2016 4:14 pm

In an attempt to get ready for shoulder replacement surgery and then rehab, I'm trying to set up a really light weight - 22# bow - I have 22# SF Axion+ limbs on a 21" metal riser - can't remember who made it. The problem is that it is the loudest damn thing I've ever shot. Sounds like some kind of metal stamping machine.

So far I've tried string silencers - very minor improvement - velcro on the limbs where they connect to the riser - a little more improvement but still not much - increase the brace height to 9" - again not much effect - a different riser - the damn limbs are still loud and don't shoot as well.

Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.

A set of the new Black Max 2.0's from Lancaster.... :o

Not a bad idea at all.

Have you checked to make sure all the screws in the riser and limbs are tight? Make sure the ILF fitting aren't fouled in the dovetails..... maybe?

Not saying they are, but those 2.0's might be Axiom limbs.

Thanks, Jim. The Blackmax 2.0 limbs say they're made by Win & Win.

Win & Win's basic wood/glass limb is branded Sebastian Flute and sold as the SF Axiom. That's why I'm thinking those 2.0's may be Win & Win's basic wood/glass limb with TradTech's logo's--or not.

Can you post a picture of your riser?

Good luck. I hope you get it worked out.

It's going to depend on what is causing the noise. If it is in the pockets, shoot it with Silicon sealant. If that is a little too permanent, look for draft stop, if you can find it. It is a peelable sealant.
