  • noise coming from the top cam when almost at fulldraw

    Hey folks...I got a noise that seems to be coming from my top cam once i am almost at full draw with my 2010 z28..Its kinda a click noise..Its hard to describe..Any ideas what it is or what could have caused it?..

    I had it on my Judge. I think it was a loose mod or the draw stop. I thought it was my rest for the longest time.

      Thanks for the response...I didnt notice it till i had my peep switched to a smaller one an tied in..They had to remove a stop to press the bow with the EZ press...After the peep was done i checked the tightness on the mod screws an moved back stops farthest from the nocking point for more let off an it still is making the noise..Did i do something wrong?

          Upon further inspection.Sometimes it occurs within the first 6in of the draw cycle.Other times it is in the last few inches of the draw cycle.It has also made multiple noises through out the draw cycle.During one single total draw cycle.I did notice a loose mod screw after the shop had it in the press to swap peep's..I snugged the screw an checked all the others??I do not have a Elite dealer very close..An i dont really have the extra cash to pay for a full inspection an re tune of the bow from a Elite dealer..The local guys dont have a draw board..They use the old hook from the ceiling method to check timing...

            My '10 Z made the same noise at the same time in the draw as yours. It was a loose mod. After tightening it up I have not had the noise return.

              Do i just tighten them??Or is it better to relax the limbs in a press then tighten them?

                I'm no bow mechanic but if it was me I'd take the pressure off , remove the mod screw check and make sure the mod and the cam weren't damaged , then put either (red , I believe is the correct one ) thread lock or string wax on the threads and tighten it snugly. Be careful not to strip the threads out of the cam. I'd do this to all of the mod screws on both cams. As I said I'm no bow mechanic but this is what I would do.

                    I doubt it was damaged. Just tighten all the screws on the mods. You don't need to press it. I didnt.

                      If the strings are not putting pressure on the mod at rest, then just tighten it. No need to press it, but if the strings are wrapped in the mod at rest its probably a good idea to press it. Im not familiar with the z.

                        Alot of shops will press the bow against the stops, cause there ignorant. Usually Mathews or solocam dealers that dont have experience with stops. Check the stops real good to make sure they are not bent. I dont let anyone touch my bow unless its me or a highly recommended bowsmith.
                        It happens more often than you think.

                          Just tighten the mods. It would be better to press it first but keep an eye on them. every couple of shots recheck the screws.
                          When you get a chance take it back and have them press it and loctite the mod screws for you. they shouldnt of touched the mods installing a peep.
                          No ifs and or buts Just maybee.

                            Don't use red lock tight - you'll never get them out - USE BLUE

                              Had similar thing on my Pure recently...click just a shade before full draw and another click just before back at brace...very distinct sounding and could feel it in riser when drawing on draw hook...Put in press, checked mods and screws...most were good, couple turned just a bit...After that click at full draw was gone, and just barely there at rest...Initial thought was cable riding top/side of cam groove and then snapping into cam track but not 100%.
