View Full Version : Jaguar Take Down Sight Help

03-07-2012, 04:46 PM
First time poster, archery beginner...

I currently have the above bow and am trying to gain some more accuracy. (The learning curve is quite challenging !)

I have tried searching the web for answers and seem to be going around in circles and my local archery shop staff seem quite aloof.

Any help with the following questions would be appreciated...

What type of sight setup is suits this type of bow. ? The typical ring and 3/5 pin sights or the T style sighting used on target bows ?

Are they used in conjunction with peep sights ?

At the moment using 30 limbs and shooting in the back yard.

Thank you.

Almost any sight will fit on your Jaguar as it was once a compound riser. The sighs used can be a simple as a peice of masking tape with stright pins or as complicated as you like to go, with kisser button and peep. Quick search on 3RiversArchery turned up this page, and as a beginner, I say give the 4 pin Eagle Eye a try, it will get a sight on the bow for $6, an inexpencive way to try a sighted recurve.

Do I also need a peep sight in conjunction ?

I already have GWS striker three pin sight, but havent installed it yet.

I would imagine like most aiming devices you need two references to align, such as the typical compound bow RTH setups.

A peep will improve your consisenticy, help you aim better as it will give you another point of reference, just like it does with a compound. Heck, I'd install the GWS 3 pin, and start shooting, if you have a peep lying around, install that as well. Now all you'll need to do is establish a firm anchor point, one that you'll hit each and every time your draw the bow, and you'll be good to go. :)

Re: Anchor point...

I know it can be looked down on in "traditional" bows, but the best way to establish consistency is a mechanical release aid and a baseline reference near the face ?

Thanks for your help.

That would give you a better release, not necessarlly a better anchor. With a clove or tab, your fingers are curled toward your face, and with a release aid, the side or back of your hand is toward your face. For me, that makes it harder to find a concisent anchor point. Your results may vary. :)
