I got this idea from a buddy of mine and find it to be just the ticket for me. Thought someone else may like to try it. I served the blaze orange string into a ball and slid it up or down until I had it where I wanted it and then superglued it to the string. Have been using it for 3 years now and have yet to find a negative about it. Also , the ball doesn't have to be very big. I hold my pin just to the left of the ball.

Can you shoot 70 yards without having to move the windage on the lower pins?

I can shoot accurately out to 70 yards but I use a single pin pendulum on a HHA optimizer . I am set for treestand out to 40 yrds and out to 70 from the ground. You mentioned windage, are you asking what I do to guage the wind?

I like my peep, but I can see that working just fine! Might take a bit of adjustment, but it would be tough to beat in low light!!!

Bingo ! , That's why I ended the peep. It was a real problem in a blind that is all blackened out.

Going to try this...

with some fluorescent orange fly line backing I have. It is Dacron, after all. I likel the idea of supergluing it in place once the right spot has been found. Thanks for sharing this tip, Robin of Locksey!

Your welocome. Sometimes the simplest things can make big differences. Nice thing about it is that if it doesn't work for you , cut it off and it costs you nothing. I set a friends bow up with one of these and I was going to put a kisser on it as well but found that it was unnessesary because I was driving tacks without it. That was an eye opener for me because I like the kisser but in colder weather , when I have a face mask on , I can't feel the kisser anyways.

I had a kisser and cut it off, because it didn't really do much for my shooting. Then again, my form has improved some since then!!! Can't wait to get home! Only 4 more hours....

did this last year after missing my biggest buck to date, due to darkness...........as things go, made the switch and shot him three days later well after my normal shooting time with the old peep. KEEP IT SIMPLE.

Sure would be easier than putting a peep in.

But I am very fond of my large ID peep and round pin guard. Is it hard to see the dot in low light?

No

Because of the contrast of the orange and the black string. It shows up quite well. Maybe I will take a pic of it tonight to show the contrast.

To me, orange is almost black.

I wonder how white would work. :embara:

I shoot left eye closed, I preceive my yellow knot as a blob which I have positioned on the bottom of my sight I have a mark there. I know I am at anchor when the kisser is in the cornor of my mouth and the blob is covering that mark at the bottom of the site. then I just put the pin on target. works great for me especially in low light. good luck.
