Had a new string and tune job done recently. Now bow is making a significant amount of noise at the end of the shot. Nothing is loose triple checked the entire bow. Bow was tuned by shop thru paper. Nothing else was changed on the bow. But while examining the bow the tuning marks on the cams are about a 1/4" different between the top and bottom cam. Any thoughts.......

The shop didn't get the bow back in spec or the cams timed. How's the ata, brace height, & poundage?

Did you have string silencers on your previous set? Do you have a string stop on your rig?

I too was wondering about string silencers. Earlier this year I was target shooting and noticed the twang was louder. One of the rubber whisker type silencers had worn almost completely off, so I replaced it with a fresh one and it fixed the noise.

Several things can create excessive noise--the main culprits have already been listed. From the sound of it, and not being there to look at it, I would start by getting a tape measure and check your specs. Provided that all string dampeners are back in their correct place, an out of tune bow would be where I started. It is not unusual to have 2-cam or 1 1/2 cam bows, not rotating exactly the same, in fact some do better when they are not, but the difference shouldn't be more than 1/16th at most--not 1/4" as you said. Rickym also touched on something else--string materials. Different string materials and string counts can and will make a difference in sound, speed, tunability and the shot sequence itself.
