Default noisy assassin?

My sons 2011 assassin is extremely loud, the noise originates in the string stopper. is there a fix for this or an aftermarket replacement available?

normally the assassian isnt very loud, check the cam timing and the placement of the string stop there should be just enough room between the stop and the string to get a drivers liscense between them. also what lbs and grain arrow is he shooting? shooting a too light arrow is very loud and dangerous

The cam timing is correct, he is shooting 60lbs, 320 grain arrow. The string is touching the stopper, I will reset that & post the results. Thanx

Be sure to check all the fasteners on your bow, including the ones holding the cam module. A loose, even slightly, screw on a sight, quiver, module can make a rather loud racket.
AND, check the tune, this OFTEN leads to a noisier shot.

If you can find nothing loose then take a look at your cam timing.
