    1st of all :welcome: to the forum. Although I don't have any experience with that sight I'm sure someone on here will. There is a lot of knowledge on this forum that you shoulf find helpful.

    Welcome to the forum...

    I don't have any personal expierience with the hindsight, but I do know some people love them and others don't...The people who seem to get them tuned in say they'll never go back...

    another option is a peep with a tube

    hind sight

    Ha! :welcome: to the forum
    The hind sight is a sight in front like normal and a rear sight that is on the back side of the bow that you line up with the front,i dont use one but i helped set one up.
    I wouldnt recommend it if you havent been shooting very much.
    Its accurate only if you have a full proof anchor point, using a kisser button also.hope that help's:biggrin1:

    Welcome...

    I'll give this a try. I don't have one but I did shoot a bow with one last Summer.

    With a hind-sight, when you adjust your yardage for the shot by 'changing' pins, you basically have to move your anchor point for each pin. And, the slower your bow/arrow setup is the more you have to change it. I didn't like that at all. I suppose you could get used to it but I didn't care for it.

    If you use a peep and center your sight ring in the peep you do not have to move your anchor point. You just put whatever pin you need on the target and let the arrow go. Your anchor is exactly the same every time.

    Sorry if I didn't explain this so it was easy to understand. I know exactly how it felt to me but I'm not sure how to explain it. I think you need to try it and see what I mean.

    Also, if your peep is moving it's probably not served in right or your string may need to be changed. Is it moving up/down or is rotation the problem ? If it's up/down the serving holding the peep in needs to be re-done. If it's rotation, either you need to get a new string or minimally put the bow in a press and rotate the string so the peep rotates to the proper position when at full draw.

    Ihope that helped and good luck !

    hind sight

    ron, this is a hindsight
    You dont have to change your anchor point, it has a moveable rear sight that adjust for yardage.
    The old style did have to shange your anchor but 2 years ago they came out with the moveable tail sight, kinda like the old huntmaster 2000.:biggrin1:

    That thing looks like you would have to do a lot of tinkering around to get it just right. I imagine you would have to adjust the yardage marks on the hindsight if you were using different arrows or if you put it on a new bow. I wouldn't think they would be the same because of different draw lengths and different speeds.

    Ah, I see said the blind man to his deaf dog...

    No, that is not what I shot last Summer... I was told it was a hindsight but the guy must have been mistaken. The one I shot was similar to the rear sight on a rifle. I most definitely had to change anchor points to adjust for elevation.
