    So an extra bubble (indicator, whatever) and they want big $$ for it? Not going to stop you from torquing the bow on shot, that comes down to good form like everything else.

    Junk imo.

    I kind of like the idea of that site as it can be a good training tool to always make sure you are aligned with the sight. It is a lot of cash though.

    Lol!

    Think of it another way, $200 buys you a lot of arrows to practice with, new cables and string, or even half the cost of a new bow!

    I thought I'd wait and see what you guys had to say. Now here's my thoughts. I didn't even look at the price, but if it's $200 then it's way too much. OK, so it has this little alignment gizmo, similar (the same?) as the older Timberline No-Peep.

    OK, so you draw and anchor. Take a look at that little window and see you're out of alignment. So now what do you do. Do you stand at full draw and tighten your grip or apply pressure to the riser with your hand or fingers? So now what is going to keep that bow from torquing right back to the same position once you release and have no pulling pressure on the bow? One of the worse things you can do is have tension in your hand.

    Another scenerio. Assume your grip is OK. You draw and anchor and the little gizmo says you aren't anchored in the right spot so you adjust your anchor, head position or whatever. If this is a problem then it just shows that your bow is not set up properly for you. I still subscribe to the idea that once you focus on the target and draw to anchor you should not have to move your head whatsoever. If you do then the bow doesn't fit you. Adjust the bow to fit. As Destroyer said, GOOD FORM and easier to apply good form if the bow is set up for you well.

    You do have to admit. There are all kinds of people thinking of ways to improve our shooting and emptying our wallets. America at it's best.

    spend your money on a nice release, if you don't have one. I just picked up the TRU Fire Beast, what a difference. As far as sights, singe pin Silver Talon. As soon as it cools off I plan on milling a housing to hold a lens, and a light. 115 here today, that just aint right.

    By the way, the next time your out hitting up garage sales, don't over look the thighmaster, red and blue. The work wonders. Ask the chick that owns it. Latest and greatest, goota have it bullshit.
