    I just purchased a trykon a couple weeks ago and love the way it shoots ... i have only one concern though there is a slight rubber band twang after you release i wasn't sure if this was from the crappy string that comes stock or a tuning problem that can be fixed with the bow itself ..some feedback back on this would be awesome ..

    thanks :rockon:

    I had an SQ2 that when leeches were installed the bow was louder than without......got rid of them and went to cat whiskers.....silent bow.....try what lungbuster says......might just work......

    I had the string shox on mine and I pulled them off I now use cat whiskers. My arrow flight is louder than the bow. Do you use a d loop or are you firing from the serving. I recommend the d loop.

    Welcome to the forum SuperJ glad to have you with us.:wave:
    And I totally agree with the cat whiskers they may rob you of 2-3 fps in speed but are tough to beat when it comes to price and quieting down a bow. I hope you get things down to a whisper SuperJ


    Now this is pretty bad when a guy has to tell us when he is being serious.

    I personally think that the d loop is quieter and it will make you more accurate and also will save your string. I also put cat whiskers on the cables as well I just cut them to hang about 1.25 at each end. They work, alot of people say it slows the string but I am not going to notice 1-3 fps

    Trykon twang

    My trykon had the same twang. I put on a string stop and twang be gone.Highly recomend getting one. Having problems tuning the bow and keeping it tuned after a bunch of shoots. I hope it is the hoyt string. Just put on Zebra string and cables and haven't shot enough to tell.

    the d loop prob will work like silencers just not as well.
     
  12. I use to hear that sound also, but then I learned to duck sooner when my girlfriend would swing at me:frusty: :lol: :lol:


    Now he can say something about him being serious :peace: :laugh:
     
  13. In all seriousness I think the I would try the cat whiskers.:cool:

    My trykon had the string buzz too, the sts took care of the buzz. Currently I have a double sts, string loop, 2 string leeches-as close to the end servings as possible, and bowtechs little slip on leeches on my cables(4 of them) and my bow is dead silent. It still shoots 280 with a 390 grain arrow. 29" draw@65lbs through a WB. Oh, and 4 CSS tunerz, two in the riser and two on the limbs. I know it's a lot of stuff, but now all you hear when I shoot is the hiss of the blazers!
