    I was wondering if anyone else has encountered a problem with the 2006 Hoyt Trykon or Trykon XL. We received some in store a few weeks ago and noticed that when they shot the string sounds somewhat similiar to a guitar when plucked:( . All of the specs check out on the bow and I talked to a Hoyt Rep who said that the new String Shox don't dampen the sound like Limbsaver Leeches do, and that may be the problem.

    I've tried everything from twisting the string to new stabilizers and sights. I've also tried the leeches, and although they do seem to dampen the sound, it's not as quiet as the Matthews Switchback/XT/LD.

    If you have any suggestions let me know please!

    I just got my Trykon and not viberation or noise.

    I just got my Trykon and it is set at 75 Lbs and I have nothing on the string or cables. (Using it for 3D) and there are no sounds comming from the bow except the swizzz from the arrow when it leaves. String and Bow is very quit and shoot free. Not bad for 303 FPS either.

    Don't know if this is a fact. I was told some of the early Trykons had smaller serving on the loop ends of the string. This was causing vibration of the string during the shot. The latest Trykons we have setup have been very quiet.

    Straight fromt the Rep.

    Talked to a Hoyt rep. a few days ago. He said the vibration was coming from the new String Shox. They are used as a ball perimeter style weight for the string, and do not help at all with silencing it. He informed me that regular Limbsaver Leeches will do the trick for quieting down the string and after a few twists and leeches the XL was fine.

    Also found out that Hoyt's specs are off on the Trykon. For those of you who have shot a trykon/XL you've probably noticed an unbelieveable hard rollover for the cam. *with 80% let-off* The rep informed me that they found out that bow is getting more in the area of 86% let-off. He said going from a 60lb. draw weight to 8lb. within a matter of 2in. will cause the harder rollover.

    Granted the Hoyt is still a great bow and we plan on selling quite a few.:)

    thanks for the input guys.
