    I ve been waiting for my call from NASA too, I keep telling them what a great rocket scientist I would be. ...........


    +1 try a smaller peep........if that don't work, find a good shop and try a lense in your peep. sometime a verifier in your peep sight is just the ticket to clear up your pins.

    Have the same problem and for me the fix was go to a slider sight with a fiber optic scope .029 green fiber. I just could not use the 4 pins as they were nver clear at almost dark they would fade together.

    I use to have eye's like that but old age is starting to catch up. I can still see great far away but nothing close......heck I almost got my computer screen sitting on the desk across from mine.

    Default seeing the pins

    had same problem went with specalty peep with screw in leanses now shooting .10 pin on target set up. You have to give a little bluryness at target but still works real good. You can try differant magnafications till you find the right one and they come in differant sizes so you just change insert size not have to change compleat peep. Doesn't help speling but I see the pins without glasses. I'm not a candidate for lazic wish I was
