    Rpm 360 vibration picked on camera.

    Out shooting the rpm this afternoon with my camera mounted on it. The camera is a kodak playsport mounted with a bowfinger mount. The vibration picked up was inaudible at the shot by ear. Not too sure if I should even worry about it. I was just wondering if any of yall have had this experience before or if the the source of vibration was identifiable by any of yall.

    I heard that vibration LOUD and CLEAR! Could not identify the source of it though. At first I thought it might be a loose tip on the arrow... but at the end I'm pretty sure that's not what it is. I'd check all your accessories to make sure that a screw did not back out some. If you find any perhaps a dab of locktite would solve the problem. Good luck in finding the source.

    more than likely it is something vibrating with the camera itself

    Something isn't right. My RPM360 is one of the quietest bows I've shot. I'm guessing it's a loose mod screw or maybe something with the camera or it's mount.

    The vibration most likely isn't from the bow. I mount my Sony action cam to my stabilizer with a Gorilla pod wrap mount and the same thing happens. There's a lot of force when an arrow is fired.
