Z7 string noise

Got questions about archery supplies, or want to write a review on some archery equipment...this is the place.

Z7 string noise

Postby Keef on Sun Mar 21, 2010 11:14 pm

I have been shooting my new bow and really like it but it seems too noisy for my tastes. I have a DownForce rest and B-Stinger stabilizer on it. I think the noise is the string but wonder if the rest is adding to it. All screws and bolts are tight. Anyone have any ideas? I don't want to put more string silencers on it and can't figure out what the noise could be.

i don't see that rest adding any noise.....

1. how are the string suppressors.....any wear, especially in the top??

2. Is the string stop barely touching the string at brace height??

3. Kinda odd for a short bow to have extra string noise(unless you are shooting a very light arrow)...usually longer ata models(37"+) have more string to oscillate and cause louder than normal string noise

I had a guy today at the shop with a Z7.....CANNOT for the life of him get a left tear out, like 1".....nothing changes it at all....It was tearing just a tad low left, I got it now directly left....weirdest thing.....

It's brand new, not many shots.
The string barely touches the string suppressor. I think I'll move it out a little.
My arrows are light since I'm only shooting 51 lbs and they're only 27". They are GT 55/75s.

It ain't hand torque......he tried every imaginable hand placement, the mathews wood grip, a torqueless grip....open hand....he even induced torque into the bow and it didn't change the tear

Well I tried everything I could think of to eliminate the noise. Today I put a LimbDriver rest on it and NO NOISE. I'm wondering if the string on the Mathews rest was making the noise? Anyway it's gone and I'm happy.
