    So...the peep moves up, the head tilts up, the eye rotates, the sight housing moves down...can you pleas explain how a person is physically capable of looking through a peep that has moved up while...

    You're doing quite fine in your attempts to reverse the failure that I mentioned...alas...the manipulation, intentional or otherwise, of a basic term, both a noun and verb to suit the subjective...

    Um...yeah...no one has ever said that with modern compound bows shooting reasonably fast that the change in the anchor position was not great...in think terms like "subtle", and "minute" were used. ...

    No, you have to "raise up" to hit the 100 yard target, not shot at it. The raising up with a fixed pin sight, where the housing is centered in a peep does nothing to the "anchor. When the raising...

    I'm not sure what to challenge him on. You see, he certainly recognizes that the "anchor" gets "looser" (moves) for longer shots, and that he...
  8. Your neck is the pivot point of what? How you...

    Your neck is the pivot point of what? How you adjust to see through the peep? The bow still has to be raised/lowered. When the anchor changes, because it has to, and I'm glad you recognize this,...

    Really? If the "anchor is the pivot point, and the bow hand is moved up/down, what kind of path does the bow move in? It is a circular path because, assuming the anchor is static, that is the only...

    You really should think about that a little more...while your peep doesn't move in the string, it certainly moves in an arch...which moves it higher or lower in relation to the eye, if the "anchor"...

    Assuming that is correct, what does that do the the relationship between the peep and the eye? The concept that the "anchor" is a static hinge ignores the movement of the peep up/down. And when the...

    Ok...but not really sure this is a "thinking" issue. It is a fact/science issue, and there really isn't much subjectivity, if any, about the answer to the core question. Whether people want to, or...

    Only 2 reasons I can think of for someone aiming at the scapula:

    1. They don't know where to aim. (The scapula in the 'normal position is way too high).
