    I posted a thread a couple of days ago about installing a Mathews Dead Stop String Suppressor on my Reezen 6.5. After reading here and other places about the benefits I purchased one tonight. When I install it should it touch the string or not? I have read some places that it should be 1/8 inch or 1/16 of an inch from touching and other places say it should just be touching. I even saw a video of a guy on youtube who actually had the string pushed back about 1/8 of an inch. What should it be?

    It should barely be touching it or just off of it. You do not want it pushing the string.

    Most places I read said the same you did. The guy on Youtube looked like he ran an archery shop but he had it pushing on the string enough you could see the string was being pushed back.

    The idea of the stopper is to stop the forward progress of the string at or close to brace height. At no time should the stopper be applying any pressure to the string. As Jay stated barely touching or even a credit cards width away from it. :thumbup
