    Hey just wondering if any one else has had any problems with their tribute. I have an 06 tribute,about six months old, noticed the other day that its starting to make more noise than usual, sounds like the top limb pocket is popping. I took all accessories off put on a WB noise still there. I also noticed the the cams are hitting the limbs. Its a right handed bow, i see were the cams top and bottom have been hitting the limb on the left side of the "Y". There is not much clearance in here but should they hit or rub!? I shoot carbon express maxima 350 with 100 grain tips at 70lbs this isn't to light. Bow has never been dry fired either. Help.

    :cool:

    you got a badly tuned bow, you are simply over-rotating you cams which means overdraw, i recomend you stop shooting that right away and take it to the local pro shop to fix that, thats how u blow up your bow, and trust me, us bowtech owners dont need anymore harasment:doh:

    stop pickin on WB's.......there not that bad......:pound:
     
  5. you need to take it to a pro shop and have it checked out without hereing it or seeing it,it's really hard to tell.let them look it over and make sure to check out your limbs,my brothers bow started making noise and it got louder and louder we found the proublem and it was a crack in the top limb.
    STOP SHOOTING IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I really must say i havent seen any of the newer, (within 5 years) bows blow up, the worst thing a saw at a shoot was a guy shooting with a overdraw, and didnt have the drop plate on, well the arrow fell off when he leter go, the arrow went into his wrist right whare the hand starts to get larger then the wrist, and the tip came out on his index finger between his first and second knuckle..... almost made me loose my lunch.....:puke:
