    What's the noise problem??? on the draw or release???
    Put moleskin on the yoke to quite the arrow...but the rest itself should be pretty quiet...

    Mine is very quiet only noise is when I draw and that is very minor I'm sure moleskin would fix it. I use a WB for hunting though.

    I got a piece of rubber foam glued to the riser where the yoke hits the riser. Also have mole skin on yoke itself.

    You know...actually a friend of mine shoots one that was making a noise on release...it took us a while to figure it out, but the yoke was actually slapping the riser on release...but there was something broken internally...but that one was over a year old...3 spots leagues and 40 3d's and all the practice, a good 1000-1200 shots...

    just a thought.

    the noise is on the draw back. It might depend on your arrow finish but Victory/Goldtip arrows are kinda loud sliding through the ripcord. I imagine you can put adhesive felt/moleskin on it like I did my trophy taker.
    Prostaff of whatever DB uses.
