    Default Joey Behr's StringSight?

    What do you guys think about Joey Behr's StringSight? I like the homemade gadgets and don't like the peep sights very much, so this may be a good option, but am not sure about it

    For what I see, definitely it has to do with the different anchor positions (check the video) per distances he shoot. He might be using only one pin for the 20yrd shot, but if you look closely to the bow's string on where there should be a peep sight, there's three extra "notches" on the string. You can do the same using regular string nocks on the string as per distance you want to shoot same you would do with every pin on a multiple pin sight. But of course, you'll be adding weight to the string. It's still a good idea.

    I'm curious. Where could I find one and read more about it? The video didn't show anything except him shooting.

    The principle is clear for me, but Desmond, you are right about the added weight. Still i guess i'll try this, because i'm tired of my peep with a tube, which makes an annoying sound, like someone's face is slapped I can also put on my MOAB a red dot sight, but it is tuned for mine other bow and don't want to move it.

    Give us a review if you do try it. I went to his site and it looks like a person could just tie a bit of serving in different places. The trick would be figuring out where to tie it.

    hunt123, i guess this could be done with many repeating attempts. Unfortunately my backyard is only about 20 yards long and i won't be able to try this soon (we still have snow here), but as soon as i do it i'll wright.

    I'll also get rid of mine, but there comes the problem with the string rotation and i'll have to get rid of the factory strings and at the end i'll be broken

    So eliminating string rotation is what the tube is for? I always wondered about that. I saw a website the other day that does custom strings that don't rotate but I think they were about $80 or so. After the weather warms up and I start shooting, if rotation becomes a problem, I may have to get some even though they're pricey. Or maybe get a "No-Peep". I'm sure not going to put one of those tubes on. I just have the Martin strings that came on my Bengal.
