    Default speed loop

    Just curious, what you guys think of the T.R.U.Ball speed loops used to keep the peep lined up? A friend suggested it since I'm always twisting the d-loop back to center. My Martins still have "factory" strings, my Parkers I believe use Stone Mountain.

    I have been looking at them for a while. My "other" bow has a great set of Americas Best on it and no matter how you twist it my peep is off by 1/4 a twist. I think these would do the trick and give a few more fps.

    I have one on all my bows. I have a Parker w winners choice strings. It keeps the truest alignment without the speed loop, more than likely due to the quality of the string. But as a peace of mind sort a thing I still install the speed loop. Have not noticed any ill effect in speed or noise on any of my bows although I didn't chrono any before and after speeds.

    OK, I've seen them before. No opinion as I don't even use a loop.

    I can see it helping alignment, but to call it a "speed" loop? How does it help speed? I'll stick with my plain old BCY 24 Loop. No chance of the screws coming out. lol
