I play a Reiter Special (a great instrument), but I always thought the stock 5/8" bridge led to the action being just a little high. I recently replaced it with a 9/16" Snuffy Smith New Generation and am not only super pleased with the banjo's action, but also with the tonal quality now of the instrument. Especially of the lower notes. Get one of these if you need a new bridge.
