For my first post I thought I'd ask which people prefer: a peep sight or a kisser button. Or, do some of you use both?

I'm going to add one of the two to my set-up this week, and was wondering what the drawbacks of going with a kisser-button over a peep would be.

Thanks

Problem with the kisser only is you could still move your head left and right slightly and probably not notice it. The peep if you center it with your pin guard everytime you know you are centered left and right..I think for a beginner using both is an excellent way to start then as you get more comfortable drop the kisser if you want..thats what I did and I don't miss it at all anymore

I use both and also put my nose on the string. si I am locked in, in 3 places and that keeps me to have the same head position each time.

I'm with bill. I use the same setup and it works great for me.

I'm also with bill. The kisser first then the nose on the string then center the sight in the peep.

The comparison is not a good one. Both serve different purposes. The peep should not be used as an anchor. You should be able to see through the center of your peep as a result of a solid anchor. This should be repeatable as long as there are no changes in your set up. The kisser button provides another anchor point; nothing more. It's been said that a good anchor requires 3 contact points. There is nothing written in stone that says you can't have 4. On some short ATA bows, the string angle is too steep to allow a nose contact. This occurs on some other set ups also. In these cases it might be helpful to add a kisser to bring up the number of contact points.

I have a little bony part behind my ear that my knuckle goes against when I draw. I can draw back, with eyes closed, and when I open them up, my peep is right there. Every time. As long as I find that bony bump, and keep a loose bow hand, no worries.

To make a long story short, peep but no kisser. :thumbs_up

For 3D I use both. For hunting I only use the peep. A kisser could get hung up on a face mask.

If you are going to use just one I would use the peep sight. But I use both. You always need to get in the spot you shoot last time to get good groups

I can shoot with out either of them. I cant tell a big difference. But i prefer both. It keeps me focused better. I know it sounds crazy. But its true.

That might be a problem with a plastic kisser "button" but those big, awkward things are totally redundant. All that is needed for a perfectly effective kisser is a few turns and knots with serving thread. The lips are very sensitive and will have no trouble feeling that little appendage to the bowstring.

And it won't grab your mask.

Couple of weekends ago during a 3d shoot, two friends that I was shooting with used only kisser buttons. They were having [email protected]%% with left and rights. Put in a peep in both bows that afternoon, left the buttons in and their scores went up tremendously. Go with a peep and kisser but a peep at least.
