hahaha, I'm in the t rex category, 25ish. I really think someone should market a short draw length bow for men, like 25-27". Make it as fast as possible, and give it a name like t-rex. Bowtech has the heartbreaker, matthews the passion. We need a short draw bow with a mainly name. I know the leopard isnt to bad for names. But this new bow should not be offered in pink anything, not pink camo, any of that. Cause if I have to look at one more short draw bow on ebay with pink strings and accessories, I'm going to cry.... I mean be very upset, yes very upset.............
Oh and the distance thing for the peep is tough for me. I have a huge head, and a big nose. Changes everything, and have a hard time with peep size, distance all of that. Getting rid of the peep cause it annoys me.

This just hit me ... the distance from your eye with the peep - what is the best size to use? I am currently using a G5 Meta Hunter 1/4" and it overlaps my sight ring perfectly. Is there any point in going to a smaller peep or is this the best way to keep it?

Noted - I think with my next set of strings, I might think about a slightly smaller peep just for giggles and if I don't like it, I'll swap it out.
Bringing this one back up - I was reading a recent post linked from Wired To Hunt to an article on Bowhunting.com - Extending Your Effective Bow Killing Range.
This got me to thinking about my personal set up. I remembered my sight (TruGlo Carbon XS) had an extra mounting set on the bracket from when I set it up with my Dad. It was set to the closer of the 2 mounting options and that post ruffled my feathers to play with one more thing with the bow. I went ahead and took it off and kicked it out to the extended mount. In doing this I had to bring my sight window down and it was bottomed out.
From here I remembered that the sight was universal for left and right sides - so I took with window out and flipped the arm upside down. This allowed me to bring all of my pins up in the window and give myself more vertical adjustment and center the pins better. Didn't think about this before, but kicking the sight out farther from your eye/peep - makes the pins appear smaller because of the distance...duh...and because of that your pin gaps will open up. That is what I really liked, I could open my gaps up and was able to see much more of the target. Before making the adjustment, my 20/30 pins were super tight with each other. I still have to re-set my 40 and 50, but so far, I really like having this change.
Just a thought for anyone else out there that isn't running their setup like this. Worth trying at least.
