I have MeanV on both of my BowTechs and love them. Great service and quality work. I have never used a Rattler, but have seen video reviews of their product and it really seems to do the job.

Get an STS, it has more adjustment than a MeanV. Remember, your speed does depend on where you put an item such as an STS.

Davepjr and I proved it on the range. It was shocking.
Care to explain what your talking about?

There is more than ample adjustment for tuning with a MeanV.

I went with a string tamer on mine,set up was a breeze and it works awesome, have taken off the string silencers as well now.

Both get great reviews and you're right, the string tamer is very good but I personally like the custom job that MeanV does, very Nice....

Sorry,I don't like or care for any string suppressers.They all make a "thump",and in my opinion,transfer vibration directly into the riser.Think about it,all of a sudden,all these bows "have" to have them.To me,I feel it's an design flaw that makes them a manufactors gimmick.Even though I don't shoot a Mathews,they have the only one that I would say is worthwhile.My new Katera XL,after shooting a couple hunderd shots though it,I removed the string suppressor,and with a pair of the right cat whiskers,it's much quieter,no hand shock,just a pleasure to shoot.As a matter of fact,it's quieter than my 07 Commander.I'm not trying to start anything,just my opinion.

It's like I always tell everybody. There are a lot of string suppressors on the market today, look them over and buy the one that appeals to you. Then just enjoy the benefits!! Bottom line is they work!! I get feedback day in and day out, and those that don't see an improvement in their bow is considerably less than 1%

Oh, you couldn't be more wrong my friend! Mine completely takes the twang out of the string and there is no thump or smacking sound. Some of them do do that though but not the MeanV or the String Tamer. The Rattler is one, just play one of their cheesy videos and you can hear the loud smack I am talking about, you don't get that with the MeanV. Plus, taking the twang out of the string reduces vibration and transfers an insignificant amount of speed to your arrow.
