Re: hoyt spyder turbo

My bow shop believe it or not is actually talking guys out of buying the hoyt spyders. He says the new limb pocket design is crap and that they really cheapened up the dampeners which is why they are so loud. I hear they shoot nice though.

Re: hoyt spyder turbo

I have the Spyder 30 and have really enjoyed shooting it so far. I havent noticed it being significantly louder than any other bow. I think its pretty quiet compared to others that I see at the range.

Just my .02

Re: hoyt spyder turbo

They do tend to be a bit louder than other bows because of the new Air Shox contacting the limbs as they relax. The noise however is not that bad and is only noticeable if you are listening for it. In normal shooting it is and I quote "an acceptable level of noise" this is straight from Hoyt and one of their engineers. Compared to other split limb bows it is slightly louder on the scale but not extremely. If you notice it is overly loud then there may be an issue make sure the screws for the air shox are tight and all th emod screws are tight. If you can't figure it out and still notice a noise take it to your proshop and have them look at it to see if they can figure out where the extra noise is coming from.

Re: hoyt spyder turbo

I'm still trying to grasp the idea that the noise and vibration suppression on the new Hoyts require contact first. Contact means noise, and even though it may be acceptable to us, a deer is going to find that pretty loud.

I a bow needs to be as quite as possible. There may be a time when given a shot opportunity where that deer may be on alert, and it does not take much time for them to squat and go.

You can always take the AirShox off, directions are in the owners manual. Buy some AlphaShox and toss them in there.
