Is this safe to shoot or are the strings shot?
TIE in the peep. That means use some serving thread, and go AROUND the groove around the outside of the peep,I don’t build strings like Automan26 does. So if he says it’s ok to shoot then I would take his word for it. An experienced string builder knows more about that sort of thing than those of us who just shoot and work on bows. I still personally wouldn’t feel that comfortable with it myself. It looks like the peep is beginning to cut into the string here too. I also wouldn’t feel comfortable with not having the peep served into the string like that.
Wow that’s a great demonstration!!!!! U should post that to help others seriously I like that easy for people to understndTIE in the peep. That means use some serving thread, and go AROUND the groove around the outside of the peep,
to permanently connect the peep to the bowstring. Like this.
Having the black serving thread, to make short servings to lock down the SIZE of the upper triangle and the lower triangle, is not a TIED IN PEEP.
The peep can still pop out of the bowstring, during a dry fire. Follow the instructions in the Specialty Archery Video and WRAP the outside groove of the peep with two wraps of serving thread, to LOCK Down the Peep to the Bowstring.
GIANT model so it's easier to see how to TIE IN the peep, using serving thread in the groove that goes around the OUTSIDE of the peep.
Two wraps around the peep to make an "X".
Wrap #3 goes UNDER the "x" created by the first two wraps.
Pull tight on the tag end, and the half hitch knot will line up INSIDE the groove around the peep.
NOW your peep is TIED to the bowstring. This is why all peep have a GROOVE around the outside edge. Use it.
Repeat on the other side of the peep, so you are locked into the left edge and the right edge of the triangles.
