Below are some pics of my complete bow set up. I got it set up at BPS in Nashville. It is a Parker Trailblazer XP with the following accessories:

Black Gold Flash Point sight (very bright and solid)

Quick Shot Whisker Biscuit Pro (had to get it over the Hostage)

String Tamer and Sims S Coil stabilizer (not completely straight)

Solid Limb Limbsavers

Quickee 3 Shot quiver

Only issues is the stabilizer is a little crooked, but not much. The buss cable on the bow had a dry, frizzled spot, but some wax fixed it. The Stringtamer system looks a little bulky and the verdict is out if it is creating some noise, but overall the bow is quiet and smooth at 60# of draw. They helped me sight in the top pin and I shot it some more when I got home. I shot some serviceable groups, but my journey has just begun. I love shooting this thing.I got Red Head Carbon Max2 arrows with a spine of 350. My trigger release is nice, can't remember the name right now, but fits nicely.

How often should I wax the strings and what accessories usually need to get tightened more frequently?

I have the Duravane string tamer on my Drenalin, ind it is crooked also. It doesn't fit the Mathews bow any differently.

I locked it in place so the string is centered on the rubber stop and it is not straight.

I don"t like it in that position,but it performes the same.

Oh well, I fiddled with the string tamer last night to where there is a sheet of paper clearance between the string and the stopper. From what I understand this preferable to the stopper be firm up against the string. The string tamer is a bulky a bit, but definately yesteday my bow was shooting quiet.

I can't tell much of a difference with it on or off my bow.
Probably an add on I didn't really need.

Don't forget to buy a good rangefinder.
One that has the auto range function with a bow mode.

I'd recommend getting the string served where it contacts the string stopper to reduce string wear too .

I think where your saying the stabilizer isn't straight is due to the disconnect having some lean in it. Shouldn't hurt anything.

Agree.
I did not do this, and the string wear is noticable.
I decided to get my bow re-strung,so I let it go for now.

It is there. The serving material is a black/silver combo that blends in with the string nicely.
