I just bought a new Mathews Reezen 6.5 and seem to have some slight hand vibration when im shooting. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Get a Hoyt!

JK. Seriously, I would first check and make sure everything is tuned and working properly. Beyond that, a quality stabilizer and some string leeches.

thanks. Any specific recomendations on the string leeches? I have also been looking into getting a dead end string stop. Will this help with the problem?

for sure check and make sure everything is tuned first then try a doinker stabilizer they have some of the best on the market at this time! string leaches are not needed, dead end stop is highly suggested though!

If not already...

Make sure you are shooting a proper spined and weighted arrow.

Yep... the vibration you feel is most likely energy that is wasted because a light arrow cannot use the energy produced by the bow and so the overage is funneled back into the limbs and then the riser.. Borrow a heavier arrow from someone and shoot it... I'd bet money the vibration will disappear without hanging a bunch of stuff on the bow simply to absorb wasted energy...

Thanks for the advice, I am going to try and switch to a 340 spine arrow at 9.3gpi and see if this helps. Thanks again!

if you put on string leeches, i would use the whiskers. it doesnt slow down your bow as much and works just as good or better.

agree that the heavier arrows will probably fix it. If not, stay with the heavier arrows and switch out the bottom harmonic dampner with a harmonic stabilizer and you should be good.

I put a string tamer on my switchback xt and it made a WORLD of difference. Let us know how it works out for you.

Speaking of string stops...how do you know when you're string stop is installed correctly? Right now my string is touching the string stop just barely, I've tried adjusting it to have the width of a credit card between the string and the stop but can't seem to get the correct distance. The only reason I ask is because the serving is starting to unravel a bit and I can barely see the string. Nothing to major, but I'm not sure if I should try to mess with it or not. Is it something that I should try to fiddle with, or just leave it be?
