    Default 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.
