Hello to all Flyers. I'm a newbie with a used Master sled, arm and vest. It all seems to work well. Twice while practicing I heard a major loud "CLUNK"ing noise from the arm, at least once while in low mode. If anyone has had a similar experience, I would appreciate any enlightening replies. Is this a symptom of a minor or major problem? Am I doing something wrong?

This may be an indication that there is to much lift in the arm relative to the load you are carrying. Try dialing out (lessening) the tension in the arm so that it remains neutral or droops a bit under load. This should alleviate the noise, and also will increase your ability to hide the natural "bounce" in your step as you walk during a shot.

Hope tthat this helps, let me know.
