  1. Arrow noise

    Bowhunting and Bowhunter Showcases
    I am trying to better understand what makes arrows noisy, or quiet. Knowing some people will say that arrow noise doesn’t matter, well, it matters to me. So you guys can go away. Some questions about arrow noise: -Assuming actual arrow speed of 280fps, how much does it go up or down with +/-...
  2. Carter Sensation For Hunting?

    General Archery Discussion
    After coming up with limited results by searching previous post I figured id start my own thread. Does anyone hunt with this release? Or for anyone that just shoots it how is it noise wise?

  7. Twang is Driving Me Crazy

    General Archery Discussion
    I have been taking 30 min to an hour each day to practice my form while shooting (I think I need coach because I am still all over the place). While practicing I have been paying more and more attention to my bow as well as myself. When I release the string I have a string TWANG sound that I...
  8. Regarding tuning by noise

    F.I.T.A, N.A.A., Collegiate Archery, And J.O.A.D.
    Quick question, I'll try to be brief. I really like a quiet setup, even if it's strictly for target. I've heard time and time again that noise from the bow upon release is simply potential energy not successfully becoming kinetic and leaving with the arrow. My logic is this: A well-tuned bow is...
  9. String Suppressor's

    Parker Crossbow Discussion
    Just wondering: I have two older bows and use tie on string suppressor's to deaden string vibration. I have always used suppressor's on my vertical bows and just naturally assumed that crossbows should have them also. I have noticed that newer bows have suppressor's but not the on the strings...

  14. Help? Loud String When Drawing

    Bowtech Archery Discussion
    Hello all, yesterday I was sighting in the new sight on my 2012 Bowtech Assassin SD. I noticed when drawing my bow it makes a creaking noise 2-3 times. Other than the noise the draw cycle is very smooth. The noise sounds like the rubber things that come stock on the string are hitting cables and...
