Hey guys! I've been shooting my Hoyt dorado for 3 years. Still hasn't taken a deer with it, but have taken all kinds of small game. This year I plan on dragging it along until I finally connect with it. I have a question about tuning and brace height. I checked the brace height online and it says 7-8". When I match the recommended brace height, the bow sounds like a tuning fork. When I run 5.75-6.25 it's quiet as could be. Is this normal? The only problem I see with running a short brace height, is it will hit any jacket I wear to hunt. The bow is a 45lb @ 28 inches, and my draw is 30 inches. I'm running gold tip xts ( I think) 45-60 full length with 125 grain tips and insert weights. Is it a problem to run a shorter brace height, and if it is, how do I quiet down my bow? I already have beaver balls and string leaches, the very end of the limbs is covered in mole skin and I have limb-saver stick-ons on both limbs and it still hums like crazy when the brace height gets longer.

None, it shoots like a dream. I think my spine is too stiff, so that might be why it likes the shorter brace height. I'm shooting the same string it came wirh
