    Never tried one but it would be interesting to set up a bow and try one out. What kind of price tag do they carry?

    I like my Hind, but I see it as a hunting proposition only.

    I tried the Hind Sight, but I couldn't get comfortable with it. Maybe I didn't give it a fair shake, but I thought it was too much to think about while hunting.
    That look on my face is not concern, its shock at your utter stupidity!

    Check out Redneckarcher.com. It's an adult archer/hunting site that feels like hunt camp.

    I use both the Anchor Sight and a Timberline No-Peep. IMO they work great. If I were strickly a target shooter I'd probably stick with a peep sight, but as a guy who has a hard time using a peep in low light, I love these things to hunt with. Two negatives, one is the way they mount, sandwiched between your sight and riser, and the second is they are somewhat a PIA to get set right for you. I have a pretty easy time doing it now, but I've swapped them around a bit, but your first could give you fits if you have'nt taken your meds yet. Once you get them set though they work great. I've used them with fixed pins and slider sights like an HHA, no problem.

    I'm looking forward to using one of the rear sights because I'm a beginner and can't get a consistent anchor point

    I use a make-shift hind sight that i made out of 2 tru-glo pins on posts that I line up with my top and bottom pins on my actual sight....kinda of confusing to describe, but it works great for me.
    ...but then again I also shoot with fingers and try to keep my set-up as "un-fancy" as possible to make it more of a sport/challenge.
    The hindsight also helps me aviod bow-torque. I think peeps are a great thing too, don't get me wrong.
    Another advantage with a hind-sight is that it doesnt take away any speed. Every time you add something to your string your losing velocity on your arrow.
    Hopefully this helps.

    How do you figure that? I can promise you if you change your anchor with a Hind you won't get everything to line up.

    Here is a pic of my make-shift hind sight.....probably cost less than a peep....I line up the top hind sight pin with my top regular sight pin and the bottom hind sight pin with my bottom regular sight pin.

    so in your opinion would it be worth $70 cause i'm not as handy as you !seems like if you are forced to use the same achor point every shot you would become way more consistant

    Well, its tough to say.....I myself personally love the concept of a hind sight and its works great for me, although it took me a lot of time tinkering around with it to position it just how i liked it. If you have a lot of patience and more than 5 minutes to shoot I would recommend it.....otherwise peep sights are a lot more easy to adjust and get sighted in....
    also, "hind sight" makes a rear apeture for 35 bucks maybe cheaper on Ebay....it works pretty well especially in low light because it glows. They also make a hind sight in combination with either a 3 pin or 5 pin sight for around 75 bucks...and I've heard good things about those. Thats my opinion, but I would try to get as many opinions as possible before you make a decision, although for 35 bucks its not as big of a gamble.....
    Good Luck!
