    Default Kisser button

    How many of you use a kisser button or something of the sort? I learned with one, and then took it off, and now went back to just a nock point. I tried to teach my son without one but his groups were so wide. I put a nock point on his and his groups came in nicely. His JOAD coaches say its a crutch, so we pointed out the kisser button on Rio Wildes string.

    I've never used a kisser button or anything like it, but I know several guys that do. They all swear by them. Most are compound shooters, but 2 are traditional archers.

    I used a kisser for a while, but one time it came flying off the string. Well you get the picture I haven't gone back.

    I have kissers on all my bows. I feel they help me to repeat my anchor and aiming alignment. Just one more edge up in a world of so many little issues. Some of my hunting buds shoot with and some without...more with.

    i used to shoot one in the old days, then went without once i think i bought my single cam rage in '98 or'99. i think the faster bows were too likely to rip your mouth appart and with the use of peep sights the need felt less likely. But just recently a fellow who helped me time bow was concerned about my release anchor point tied a small ball of serving in place of the kisser and i feel more confident with it. i have always felt the more anchor points the better you will shoot

    Don't use one. I put the tip of my nose on the string so that is an extra anchor point like the kisser I guess.

    You can put a nock point clip over the kisser to keep it on the string. Mine never pop off. I have always used a kisser. it helps me stay consistent and line up every shot right. Many guys don't use it, but the bottom line is to make sure one is consistently anchoring at the same spot every time. The kisser gives me the confidence to do so.

    I have some friends that use them at archery events but that's it, their hunting bows don't have one on it. Tryed one of my friends bows with one on it, but our sight windows are different so it didn't work for me. Don't think I could use one either way.

    My point is that if it helps you shoot better, use it. My sons coach calling it crutch might be right if you are working on your form. But when you think about it, isnt a release, peep, sights, a rest and even let off all crutches?
