    I just recently bought a Reezen 6.5 from my wifes uncle. It seems to louder than my old Switchback was. I was thinking of adding a Dead Stop but wondered if it would help or if there would be any cons of adding one. Just curious if anyone here has one installed and your thoughts. Thanks in advance.

    Yep alot have done it and they work gret on them :thumbup Another reason it is prolly louder is due to the Reezen needeing a different (Stiffer spine) wich mean heavier arrow than you Switchback due to cam design [=}=]

    Had a Reezen 6.5 and put one on it. Made a difference. Also as backhalfed stated may need a stiffer spine due to cam design.

    I am shooting Beaman ICS Hunter 400 that is 8.4 GPI. Would I need something stiffer than those?

    what are your specs? DL, DW and arrow length?

    You can also run the numbers through OT2.

    You are right on the border for spine (IMHO) I would set up the string stop first (leave a very slight gap between the string and stopper), then shoot and tune. If your set up tunes well during paper, walkback and broadhead tuning leave it alone and enjoy. Too many get frazzled about the spine and instantly going to get new arrows just because they heard it. Shoot them before buying new ones and see how they fly. :thumbup

    :D I suggest the Dead Stop :thumbup… all pro no con…

    IMHO 400′s are way weak for the 6.5 at anything above what you are also
    :D

    My bow is 60-70 lbs but since it has been a couple of years since I have shot I turned it down some. The arrows came with the bow when I bought it so I guess when I work my way up to 70lbs I should get a heavier spined arrow?

    Yea those 400′s are way weak for your setup , you need something in the 340 spine at your poundage,draw length and arrow length.You work your way to 70lbs you will need something in the 300 spine range [=}=]

    Here is around your setup with 400′s on OT2 with the hunting filter on

    As you can see from the chart your way weak.

    now this is your setup with a 340 spine arrow

    Just put the ktech ksb1 on my helim and can’t believe the difference compared to the one that came with it. Now I’m going to have to get one for my reezen anyway it’s a great accessory highly recommend it.
