I finally got some great answers on my bow noise. Took it to the BPS. By luck, they were having an archery expo. The only techs working there were from Martin. That is my bow type. Anyway, long story short, my bow is fine. Their first bit of advise was to stop shooting under the covered porch and the noise amount will drop drastically. (duh) Second, I have a 31" draw, an my arrow weight was way low on the charts. I was trimmed down as far as I could go. So, they suggested a weight increase. Boy did that open up the purchasing floodgates! Since I am going to buy new arrows, I thought- what the hell. I now want a new sight, Sims stabilizer, peep sight without tubing.... I know it is kinda late to revamp my rig but who is gonna turn down a chance to shop at a huntin store? So, I am now in the sight market. I love all the models with the dial adjustments, and built in allen wrenches. Any suggestions are appreciated. If it sits off the bow a bit, I can throw a limbsaver on it. Helps a little more with noise. Those hatchet cams of mine, along with my draw length, creat a lot of thwak. Also, lets talk about fletchings. I have the Gold Tips, and I need to go to a heavier arrow. I may just increase the weight (up to the 7595 model), although Bearclaw suggested I look at Carbon Express. I believe I shot those at one time as well. I like the blazer fletchings, but I dont know if those are engineered for hunting, or just competition.
