Default Finally got to shoot my GT500 today

I must say it really does shoot nice. There is 1 small issue. The bow would be completely silent if it wasnt some kind of dzzzzz (that may not even describe it) at the very end of the shot. I feel absolutely NO shock whatsoever through the bow or vibration but if I could eliminate this 1 sound I believe this bow would be THE ultimate silent killer. I have an HHA wheel slider, fuse axium stabilizer and a G5 expert 2 rest. I just cannot find this durn sound. I have no cable dampener and no string silencers. I would imagine that this could be part of the sound I am hearing. How many FPS would I lose by adding string silencers? I would imagine that adding a cable rod dampener will not hinder the bow in any way. Any help that someone could give me would be great.

bet it's the string. Try shooting it and immediately touch the string after the shot and see if the noise goes away.

What year is your bow? If its a 2010, check the module screws for tightness. Also, if you have the chance to try different stabs, do so. I had a Fuse, and it gave my Turbohawk that same buzz. I went with a different stab, and that buzz was gone.
