    Default I'm shooting tubeless

    Thanks to the guys who told me to go tubeless with me peep sight. I went to the pro shop today and I told him that I shot well over a 100 shots and that I wanted to go without the tube.

    A bit reluctant because I got the info of the internet (I guess some of you would understand where comes from). But he still did it. Of course he was right, the peep didn't lined up. This is when he was probably torn between the "I told you so" and the putting back the old system on. So, he tried to turn the string one more time and Bingo!

    I got home, tried it for about 30 shots and I love it.

    By the way, this Bengal is a fantastic bow. I absolutely love it. Very forgiving, smooth and most of all, fun to shoot. As a matter of fact, I'm so happy with my 30 yard grouping that I will try deer hunting this year for the first time in my life. Really excited.

    if it doesnt mess you up to much, and your peep starts to twist on you a bit you can slide it up or down your string a little bit and it should straighten out. u might have to adjust your sight a lil though. but a consistant sight picture is key to good groups.

    Oh, I've noticed. First of, my shots were higher, 2nd at 20 yards, the broadheads go through the 2' wide Styrofoam block while before they would just swallow half my arrow.

    I don't know the name, but what I did notice is the bow is louder all of a sudden. I'll get an sts shortly.

    Yes, my group got wider, so it needs some adjustments on my part to pick the same point every single time. Mind you, I've been shooting for over 2 hours too. I can feel it in my shoulder blade. I'll go again tomorrow, because they have a 3D shoot for charity.

    All in all, I'm pleased and I'll never go back to a tube.

    You'll love that bow more and more once you learn it inside and out. Also when you learn to work on it that will help. It will be self rewarding.

    Peeps with tubing slow the string down, so now without the tubing, the string can ocilate more, causing more noise. The STS should take care of the problem.

    X2-Your shooting will go down hill and when you start to fatigue and ache.
    When I first started I set a limit of how many arrows I would shoot and feel comfortable with,then up it as my muscles and stamina built up.Just my .02
