Is the Helim draw stop simply just a very thin rubber sleeve when you purchase it? I had a friend pick one up for me from the shop and that was all he brought back. I looked at it and thought something has to be missing. When I bought an extra draw stop for my Outback it came with a new bolt, rubber sleeve, and a metal piece the rubber fit over and the screw went through. This just seems like something is missing for the price???
Joined: 5/11/2011The stock draw stop is a screw, an aluminum sleeve and a rubber sleeve to cover it all. It’s about 1/2″ diameter. There is also a more “slim” version of the rubber sleeve for a diameter of about 3/16″. This also gives you a bit longer valley at the back end of the draw cycle as well as just a hair longer draw length. It’s personal preference as to which one you will use on your bow. Shoot straight!!Thanks for the reply! So just so im clear, when you buy the alternate draw stop (slim version) all you get is the rubber sleeve, not the screw and the aluminum sleeve? You just use the original screw and aluminum piece?

Probably depends on your dealer. Mine came with all three pieces- screw, metal sleeve, & rubber sleeveSounds about right! My dealer tends to disappoint me so I’m sure I paid fort whole package but only got the one piece!!

Good business practice.

Mine was free as wellYou guys are making me furious!!:) While we are on the topic though, does Mathews ever do an internal audit of their dealers. The two closest to me, or the “only game in town” if you will are quite frankly, poor dealers. I often wonder how they don’t lose their dealership. Is there any opportunity to express your disgust with a dealer through Mathews? I am serious when I say neither dealer understands what it means for a Mathews bow to be “in spec” or how to get it there. I guess it is sort of a Catch 22 because it has forced me to become independent and do my own bow work which has been great and has created a certain amount of personal satisfaction. I am beyond anal when it comes to this stuff, I just wish I had a dealer who understood that. Something tells me a lot of guys come through the door with the hands off approach and whatever the dealer says/does is ultimately “correct.”
Thanks for allowing me to vent!
Disgusted With DealersI’d also like to add……more and more on this very website I am reading posts about guys getting poor service from dealers. Just saying, Mathews might need to do some quality control

Personally I feel that people don’t complain about ‘Good Service’ and therefore don’t tend to post or make public. I know some (and I’ve been one) who has commended companies for good product service, but … it’s more in the human nature to complain when we’re not happy than to broadcast that we are happy.
My local dealer is not without faults and I’ve talked to many who aren’t happy with his service. For one, don’t expect to be there less than an hour (typically more) to get work done. It’s pretty laid back in the shop and lots of talking going on – and no rush to get the job done. Rarely do they ask if they can help you when you walk into the store (I’ve learned to walk up and tell em what I want).
They do good work – abeit without fanfair or rush.I don’t expect freebies – happy if I get one.
