    best sight for old, shot eyes.

    What do you other old guys use for sights? A regular sight with pins and a peep? My eyes really suck these days...I'm up to 2 power cheaters. I can see still see the pins alright, but I'm sure the peep would be a flippin blur--maybe that doesn't matter though.

    Or maybe there is another way? I saw a youtube video about putting a red dot scope on a compound bow, Anyone ever heard of that? Seems like it would be a ***** to set up, but a scope really solves the eye problems.



    I'm new to archery at age 50. Any advice would be appreciated.

    I have been having problem with my eyes as well, The pin would be blurry, then I went to a verifier and a super peep.
    It cleared the pin right up.
    Getting older and the eyes are not the greatest any more.
    I went with the lowest power they had , A number 5 , and its working great for me.
    Good luck

    try a single pin sight. It will definately clear up the sight picture. I just switched to one and find it was easier to concentrate on the shot/target. It tighted my groups just by switching sights.
