There is a guy that hunts on my land that told me about kisser buttons a year ago and it was cool because I am new to archery. That being said he is a really good shot and he said that doesnt use a "peep". Come to find out he told me this year he uses a string splitter ( http://www.stringsplitter.net ). I am interested in trying one but I dont know if anyone has any reviews etc. this is all he uses and says he can see so much more and that he just anchors with his kisser. He says he uses the "mini" because the others are to big. I put the sight out there to see but i have seen them in person at BPS. Dont know if this is what you were looking for but good day.
The thought has crossed my mind a time or two to use only a kisser button. However, I have found the a kisser weights more than a G-5 Meta peep. I use either the 1/4" to 5/16 Meta peep and I can see through that until its too dark to see anything at all so personally I come out ahead on that. All except the hassle of getting a peep set up. Along the same lines here, a couple AT members told me recently about tying a knot like the beginning of a D- Loop and just using that for a kisser button. It worked for me and it does not weight much at all so little to no speed loss. I will admit though that a standard kisser button is a great way to keep everything the same when faced with a difficult shot angle from a stand.
I use to not use a peep...then the last 8 years I have..I'm really considering going back to a no peep and kisser buttton...However! I alighn the string striaght off the center of my nose and look stright through the string using a peep. ..especially with high angle strings on short bows...like the Z7 or the DXT I use to have....So I guess I will stick to a peep.
On my last two bows, I used a peep on one and an anchor sight on the other but both still had kissers. Just set up my Z7 and went to just a kisser. I tie 1/2 of a d-loop and then serve a little above and below to keep it from turning. I've tried the true kisser buttons before but every so often they'd give me a fat lip :mg:
Hi, Jessy Draves chiming in here.... I'm the maker of the Komfort Kiss Kisser Button. I developed the Komfort Kiss because I was tired of all the other kisser buttons tearing peoples lips. We couldn't agree more with what's being said about the kisser button improving a consistent anchor point.
We believe Kisser buttons work great with peep sights or by themselves.
If you want to check out my design here's the link..
Yes, I have always used just a kisser button. I use one of those big Saunders kissers with the little holes around the perimeter. I have tried peep sights, but my accuracy is not any better and I lose shooting light at the edges of daylight.
I don't use a peep anymore,i take white thread and make 2 spots around string, where peep would be, center your pin just like a peep, only to the one side. This combined with string touching my nose, works so good, i will never use a peep again.
Tried shooting without a peep, used the Hindsite.
Worked great, except without the diopter effect of the peep I couldn't focus the pins unless I wore my glasses.
So, peep back on 'cos I hate wearing glasses when I shoot/hunt.
I used to use a kisser only, several of us did and shot very well that way. We would take a small (2-3") piece of white pin stripe (like 1/8" wide) and place it along the edge of the site window vertically. Used this as a reference to line up the string and then you have a clear view of your pins. Only drawback is that your pins will have to be moved way out, and some brands of sites could not accomodate this distance away from your bow.
However, whether it is true or not, I always felt like I was more accurate with the peep and I just stopped pulling it out during hunting season.
I'll spare you the story that leads to my question. So here's the question... how do you aim without a peep?
Clearly, that's a newbie question, but I'm trying to understand how you guys do it. If there's no peep, how do you see the pins of your sight? Do you just line the pins up next to the string and sight the bow in that way? With a peep, one basically looks "through" the string to see the pins. How does shooting without a peep work? Thanks!
