I have a brand new Diamond Deploy, and it has a horrible creak every time I draw it back. This is one of the Carbon bows, so I don’t know if that has anything to do with it.

I bought it online, so wasn’t able to draw it before buying. Any thoughts?

Put a drop oil down each limb pocket and a little in the cam pivot points. NOT A LOT, a drop or less.

or it might be a cracked limb.

Take the cable guard slider off and try drawing it.

I have a Hoyt Alfa Max, years ago when I first got the bow a creak developed on the draw. The dealer diagnosed the problem as a dry limb pocket. After completely taking the bow apart and lubing every moving part the creak was still there. It turned out to be the sight. A piece of moleskin under the sight and the creak went away never to return.

I use never seez brand anti seize on my limb pockets . I have had three bows over the years with the creak. The lube fixed all of them. A drop of light gun oil every year on the axles is a good idea too.

I had a creak develop in my Mathew’s helium. Replaced the limb bolts and all was good.

Use Rock and Roll Gold bicycle chain lube instead of oil. It will last longer, not smell and not run all over. Use it on your door hinges one time and the door will work real smooth and not squeak for years. I use it to lube just about everything instead of oil or wd40
