    wow, I thought my sbxt was perfect before. I swapped out the bottom hd for the new one, and now my bow is even better. I like how it helps balance out the wieght. you really dont notice the extra weight of it, but it deffinetly feels and shoots better. Which I thought was impossible.
    Deffinately worth the 25 bucks.

    I’m intrigued at the design of the Harmonic Stabilizer and wonder if it could improve the performance of my 2005 Switchback.

    However, I noticed that The Harmonic Stabilizer is purposely tuned to be out of phase specifically with the longer riser Reezen bow to dampen residual vibration greater than 75%. Appears that this has been developed and engineered specifically for the Reezen.

    I do understand that this harmonic stabilizer can be retrofitted to previous mathews bows (equipped with dampeners), but is there any concrete evidence that the Harmonic Stabilizer will improve performance and reduce vibration greater than the Harmonic Dampener that is already equipped on my ’05 Switchback.

    Thoughts?

    MN BH,

    I have some concrete evidence for you. I bought a HS at my local shop for $29, installed it, and shot tighter groups. Probably due to the increased weight in the lower riser, but not sure. Whatever the cause, the effect was smaller groups for my Dren!

    As for the level of noise reduction, I don’t know. My buddies already call my bow “mute whisper”. Quiet and it still shoots 290fps set up for hunting!

    Best, Barvid

    Does anyone know if the harmonic stabilizer will fit on the original switchback?

    It will. I added that and a dead end string stop to mine, and the difference is phenominal.

    My youngest son and I were shooting up at the local archery range this am and I asked if they would take a Harmonic stabilizer out of a Z7 so I could try it in my S2. After shooting with original dampener and Harmonic stabilizer in and out comparing both a few times, I had him order me one.

    I payed 20 Euros (about $25)for mine at my dealer. So I think $45 is way too much. Why not ask your dealer to order one for you and have it send to you. Might be cheaper than E-bay.

    Got one in my Q2XL and really could feel and hear the difference. Actually I don’t feel or hear anything anymore now! :D

    If one Harmonic Stabilizer does that, what would 2 do? Or would it have any effect at all?

    When I was looking at them for my bows, the dealer let me try one first. There is a remarkable difference with just one in the bottom. The second on the top may reduce the vibration but I found that it negatively changed the way the bow handled. I did not like it. However, with all of that said, Mathews installs two HS units in their new Conquest !?!? I like the plumbin effect of the HS unit and it is EXTREMELY dead in the hand. I have one in my Hyperlite and My Switchback. I highly reccommend this $30 investment. :thumbup
