    Old technology? Then the last thing you can try is some Phase Inhibitor spray. One of the older guys on AT let this secret slip back in 2003 or 2004. I understand that it helped win several world...

    That is much the same way I do it, but to make them narrower, I use super glue on the serving strands, not the string or string serving. That way I can move it if I have to.

    The OP's question was about target bows, not hunting bows. For target, you want to give yourself every advantage. Head erect is an advantage. Your head is one of the main components of balance. ...

    A few of possibilities come to mind. One is that you are torquing the bow so much that the string path is off to the side. Another is that you have a bit of cam lean pushing the string path over. ...

    The general rule for ATA is that you want the string to make a 90 degree angle at full draw.
    This enables you to keep your head upright and still use nose on string as an anchor.

    You make a valid point about the A-T-A Kent. An archer's overall form and bow setup has to be considered. I'll withdraw my blanket statement about peep size and DL.

    I once put a layer of foam under my sight to avoid slipping. It slipped.

    I decided to install it without anything & it's been good for a couple of years. Rubber may work, but not foam.
