    When installing a new string, I recommend shooting approximately 50 shots through the bow before installing the peep. After installing the peep, make a note of which way the peep is facing you will use this as your guide. Nock an arrow, point it safely at the target butt and shoot; notice that the peep has rotated from its earlier position. The string will creep and settle for the first few shots. Once the string has settled, you’ll notice the peep will be in exactly the same position after the shot. It could take as little as twenty shots or as many as a few hundred, depending on the quality of the manufacturing processes and the material used in making the string.

    Once the string has settled you can tune the peep, make sure that it is set to the correct height and begin by nocking an arrow and drawing the bow slowly, watch how the peep moves as the string goes through the draw cycle. This is will tell you what to do with the peep. If your peep rotates from left to right, press the bow and twist the string a ½ twist in the same direction. I recommend that you twist from the bottom cam end. Now shoot the bow several times to settle the peep. If it still does not roll into the proper position, repeat the process. Always shoot the bow several times to settle the peep before checking for position. If the peep settles exactly opposite, then just flip the peep to face you. Relax the string in the press only enough to be able to get the peep out and turn it a half turn. Remember that each time the bow is in the press you must shoot the bow several times to settle the string.

    Occasionally the peep will settle just a little off no matter what you do. At this point any adjustment moves the peep too far; it is the time to flip strands. Relax the string again. Look carefully at the direction of the string twist. For example, if the normal twist of the string is clockwise, and your peep must move to the left a ¼ of a turn, take two strands from the top left side and flip them to the bottom right side. Then take two strands (make sure they aren’t the same two strands) from the bottom right side and flip them to the top left side. This will pull the peep over to the direction you want. If you want to move it the other way, just do the same steps in the opposite direction. Note: more strands will mean more movement.

    Shoot the bow to re-settle the string and repeat as necessary… If you have the patience this will work…
    Very good information, but rather than flipping strands, use the serving above and below the peep to fine tune the peep alignment. If you do a 1/4" serving above and below you will be able to slide them up/down to wrap the string twists toward or away from the peep which will rotate the peep a small amount in either direction.

    I'm not able to visualize what is going on in this part. Can someone break it down for me?

    With a 2 color balanced string, the peep is installed between the 2 colors which is normally the true center of the string. Most people will then tie the peep in place with a small amount of serving above and below the peep where the 2 colors come together. If you keep this serving around 1/4" and don't get it extremely tight you will be able to slide it up or down the string. If you look at the direction of the string twist you will be able to see if you slide both servings up or down it will wrap the twists towards/away from the peep forcing it to slightly twist in one direction or the other. This works very well when you only need to get a 1/4 turn or less on the peep to get it centered, and you don't need a press to flip strands from one side to another.

    I understand now. Once you have moved it into position to you tighten up the serving to hold it there or just leave it as is?

    If the serving is tight enough that it won't move on its own, you shouldn't have to do anything else with it.

    Question: if you don't serve the peep in tight and are able to slide the servings up or down wouldn't that allow the peep to creep and mess up your anchor point?

    Serve the peep itself good and tight and it won't move when you slide the serving toward or away from it.

    In this case, if you want to rotate the peep a bit to the left, you would push the serving that is above and below the peep UP a bit.
