A loud "twang" could be caused by a number of issues. First, check the brace height. If it is too short, the string could be slapping on the limb. Second, use a Dacron B-50 string. Although the "fastflight" type strings are great for wheelbows, they don't serve trad bows very well (it's like shooting with a steel cable instead of a stretchy string). Third, put some string silencers on the string. You don't have to pay for high-tech silencers. Beaver balls or pieces of yarn will do nicely. The Bear Magnum is a great little bow that shouldn't be making ANY noise. I plan on getting a set of these String Groove Pads for my Hoyt Buffalo, because the adjustable tiller causes the string to hit at different parts of the limbs, which causes one end of the string to get hammered (and break early).
