peep sight adjustment

  1. Frayed Peep site location

    General Archery Discussion
    I was sighting in my bow the other day and my release had a misfire w/o a bow in. Well it knocked my peep sight out of the strings. I reattached but frayed a lot of the strings in the process it looks like. This is my first bow and who know how long it sat on a self before I bought it (got it on...
  2. Peep sight gets offset

    Bow Tuning
    Hi, How do you folks reset the peep sight when it's off? I have had the bow two weeks and was enjoying the shooting until the peep sight became useless. A brand new compound that makes me feel like I wasted my cash and should get back to my longbows. However if it's simple enough to fix I'm...
  3. Peep picture effects

    General Archery Discussion
    I never consciously focused on peep picture, but have come to realise it is important. Accepting the dot must be in the middle of the peep apperture for the arrow to go in the middle/hit behind the dot, what effect will there be on the target for each of the following: 1) dot low / high in...
  4. Peep sight sliding..

    Coaches Corner
    I've noticed within the last couple of days that my peep sight is sliding up pretty significantly. It's the basic elastic rubber tube, peep sight. The knots tied on the string that would normally keep it still are glued in place, otherwise i think i could probably just slide them down to where...
  5. Peep sight tether too tight - bad...

    DIY Equipment
    Hello everyone, I just wanted to pass along something I just did to myself. I had to replace the peep sight tether (not sure if that is the right name) on my bow. That's the black surgical tuning to pull the sight straight. The problem is I put it on too tight. The result was 3 inches low...
  6. Peep Sight or Loop

    General Archery Discussion
    So my peep sight is not fully rotating. The strings should be pretty much broke in and no longer strecthing. I can twist my loop a little to get it to come around - should I be getting the peep re adjusted or is this always going to happen? Should this be an ongoing battle - or can you get that...
  7. Peep sight tuning trick I discovered!

    General Archery Discussion
    I say discovered only because I have not read of this trick before! Maybe you all have been keeping it a secret! Anyway, after tying on a Super Ball Peep last night I had a heck of a time to get it to rotate correctly. In and out of my press about six times and still it was rotated wrong. On...

  9. Peep Sight Problems

    Bow Tuning
    Hello All Im having a hard time with the peep sight on my Mathews Switchback. I had the peep for as long as i've had the bow. The peep is a self aligning sight and for some reason it just pop's out of the string after shooting it about 40 to 50 times. I had it put back in today along with...
  10. Need help!!!

    Bowhunting and Bowhunter Showcases
    I just got the g5 peep on today and perfectly aligned, after shooting awhile a noticied it was twisted. Is it my string loop, or the string itself? Im relatively new to archery and am shooting a 08 diamond edge with factory string.
  11. Peep Sight Geometry - 20 to 80y

    General Archery Discussion
    I shoot 49#, 246fps and noticed that when I set my peep by eyes-closed-anchoring at 20 yards that the peep is very wrong for 80y. Some folks here suggested setting it at 60y. When I mentioned this to my pro-shop guy, strong discussion erupted. Pro-shop guy is adamant that distance you set...
