Peepless Sight

Postby TheTrollop » Wed Aug 25, 2010 8:48 am

I've been interested in getting a new sight for my bow and the Truglo Powerdot peepless sight caught my eye. Has anyone shot with this and how does it compare? Its getting close to the archery season here in the northern tier of NY so I want to make my decision soon.

I also was interested in this sight for my son's bow. I talked to some guys at a local Matthews shop regarding this particular sight and the response was poor. The comments were it was difficult to see in low light conditions. I don't know….never tried it myself. If you get any additional information, let me know what you hear.

I was looking over the Tru Glo sight at Cabela's and the reviews were in the same vein.  The comments seem to say in high light conditions the dot could not be seen.  Another issue was the weight.

I have been thinking about a peepless sight lately since I changed the rubber tubing that cracked & broke with the "new & improved" silicone tubing that is not supposed to crack or rot.  They lied to me.  It broke for the third time tonight just as I was releasing a shot (practice).  I have just enough tension to turn the peep so I don't know what is going on.  I too am tired of the peep sight [:@]

I have been looking at the Hind Sight that Gulfcapt mentioned.  Tonight I ordered the Cross Fire 3 pin.  I wanted a light since I hunt in a dark pop up blind and even cloudy days can be a problem. 

I have a problem with my 5 pin sight mount stripping out and after the tubing broke again I have had enough [:'(]

I thank my kids and grand kids for the gift certificate I have been holding on to since January [:)]

I hope I can get it installed and sighted in by next weekend for practice.

I don't use a peep site I have the Compound bow Rifle Sight. With Trophy Ridge 5 pin vertical sights. Just love it, have improved my groups and added 10 more yards of distance with confidence, increased sight picture. I also have the Hind- site, used it for many years,. Have several bows set up with it.[/b]
They both are teachable; any one can pick up the bow and shoot. My grandchildren are now hooked.[/b]

I use the peep eliminator (rifle sight) and absolutely love it.
I'd rather drag out a 4 pointer with my father than a 10 pointer alone.

I finally got my Hind Sight 3 pin mounted and sighted in.  Once sighted in it forces me to use the same anchor point.

One thing I should have done was leave the the peep sight in longer to get close as is recommended.

Practicing at 40 yards is easy compared to what it was with the peep sight.  The 20 yard shots are much tighter groups.

Since I don't plan on shooting more than 25 yards in a hunting situation I am pleased so far with the results.
