Peep Sights VS. Hind Sight

   Most archers that use peep sights will start out with one that has a tiny aperture. The smaller the aperture is, the less room for error you have and the more accurate you become. Unfortunately this will diminish your capability to see your target under low light hunting conditions. The peep is so close to your eye that it restricts the amount of light that enters your eye. This will trick your brain into thinking that you are in the dark causing your pupils to dilate to let in available light. Because your mind will not allow your eyes to be poked by anything they cannot see your eyes will only focus on objects close at hand. Remove the peep from in front of your eye, light reenters your pupil and presto, there’s your target. So, the quick fix is to increase the size of the peep by enlarging the aperture to let in more light. This will not resolve your ability to see your target in low light. The larger peep still restricts the amount of light that enters your eye. You have just compounded the problem. By increasing the size of the aperture, you reduce your level of accuracy because your front pin is now floating inside of a large circle. Some peeps have gotten so large to fix this low light issue, looking through one is like sticking your head inside of a truck tire to line up your sights. The patented peep sight forward design by Hind Sight has addressed both of these issues. The aperture created by the open center cross hairs is a very tiny .060” for pin point accuracy. The cross hairs also glow in the dark and remain visible even in total darkness. Because the rear aperture is so far forward from your eye, it does not restrict light from entering your eye. This allows archers to take aim under the dimmest of lighting conditions.


   A common argument that I hear regarding peep sights is that my peep is much farther away from my front sight compared to the Hind Sight, using a rifle vs. pistol analogy. At first glance this seems to make sense. Both guns have sights attached to the barrels with the rifle having a longer sight plain than the pistol and therefore being more accurate. The truth is, if you remove the stock from the rifle and attach it to the pistol, shouldering it like you would a rifle, you will shoot the pistol more accurately than the rifle trying to hold the rifle in one hand like the pistol, even though it has a longer sight plain. It really comes down to how the weapon is held, not the length of the barrel, or how far apart the sights are. A bow is held the same way with or without a peep sight, your eye is always the same distance from your front sight. What matters most is how you secure your rear sight to the bow, so that your front and rear sight work together as one, as opposed to how far apart they are with one sight attached to the riser and the other in the bow string.

   Bow strings were never intended to have sights installed in them. Their sole purpose and design was to launch arrows. An arrow that travels at 250 feet per second, needs to be launched by a string that is traveling at 171 miles per hour. Once the arrow is released, the string continues to travel. Some strings will slam into string stops if the bows are so equipped. Others will travel beyond their relaxed position, stretching until they spring back, oscillating until they stop.  This constant pounding and stretching every time you fire an arrow will cause your peep sight to become unreliable to be used as a secondary aim point. Do you really want to subject your rear sight to this kind of abuse? All bow strings stretch. All bow strings twist. These are just a couple of characteristics of string. A typical bow string made today will have sixteen separate strands designed to work as one. This is how the string gets its strength, team work. As soon as you split the string in two and insert a peep sight you have considerably diminished its strength and reduced its capacity to do the job that it was intended for. The peep sight is also exerting a tremendous amount of horizontal force on a vertical string that you have already weakened by half. It is no wonder that string peeps are always in flux. To remedy the string from twisting, someone came up with the brilliant idea to attach rubber tubing to the string and riser to hold the peep in the correct position at full draw. This seems to work until it fails, sometimes striking the user in the face. How brilliant is that? Not only is this tubing noisy at the point of release, but it also creates drag, diminishing arrow speed. Because all bow strings stretch, your peep sight will always be on the move. Again, Hind Sight has found the solution to these common peep sight problems. By securely attaching your secondary sight to the riser instead of the string, all of these common peep sight problems vanish. No more drag created by jumbo peeps or rubber tubing. No tubing to fail. No lost accuracy due to an oversized peep. The string is free to stretch without taking your rear sight with it. The string will now work as intended, launching arrows as it was designed to do with less wear and tear and longer string life. And your rear sight, Hind Sight stays put securely attached to the riser. There is no other sighting system, on any kind of weapon, where one or both sights move to take aim.

   It would not be fair if I did not mention the down side when using Hind Sight products. This comes direct from customer feedback. “Your sights are more difficult to sight in.” Sorry to say but this is true. The reason being, there is absolutely no forgiveness in our sighting systems. The level of accuracy is so high that it takes some time and effort to adjust your sights to reach this point of excellence. “You can only use one pin when using your sights.” This is a misconception. You use one pin as a  centering pin in the rear cross hairs to anchor on. Once anchored you are free to place your pin of choice on target. We also hear, "Now that I am using your sight, I keep damaging my arrows because my groups are so tight” Sorry but this is also true.

   I am always amazed when someone will pay upwards to $800.00 or more for a new bow and then add a nickels worth of plastic with a hole in it, hooked up with a rubber band and think that they have a hi-tech, state of the art, sighting system. The bottom line is that peep sights are designed to fail for a number of reasons. Hind Sight has addressed each and every one of these peep sight failures and created a viable alternative.
