I have spent a great deal of time becoming intimately familiar with the Timberline Archery’s “No Peep” peep-sight eliminator. Would you be interested in reading a consumer’s opinion evaluation of this product including technical data and engineering-type diagrams? Please complete the poll and we’ll go from there.
Location: In the evening shadow of oona-pa'isI like mine but the adjustment of the critter is a pain! Once it is set however, it is a good little product!I was rather close to ordering one but backed out. I heard a lot hype about how hard they are to set up. If I bought one, I was just going to leave my peep and kisser in and use them to help set up the No peep then when everything seemed to be set, then remove the peep/kisser. Is this possible or a good pointer?
Joined: 7/16/2005I bought one and did not care for it. I was the most time consuming device I have ever tried to set up on a bow. A lot of guys like them, I don’t.
Joined: 7/9/2005Not interested. Thanks anyway.

Can’t remember how long I’ve used one but one is on it’s 4th bow.
It can be a slight chore to set up at first, but it’s much easier at first to have a friend help. Just remember to move it very slighly in one plane at a time.

Definitely keep your peep on the string until you finish. But, remember, in the process,you will lose your current setup because of the way this device mounts (you have to remove your sight from the riser). Plus, your sight pins will have to be moved anyway because you’ll not be looking “through” the string. At 20 yards you will likely shoot “roughly” the same pattern using either aiming method. From 30 yards you won’t because there are physics principles that preclude your attaining the same accuracy between these two methods. These will all be discussed in the article if there’s enough interest to warrant the time to compose it. We’ll see.
Regarding setup: Paper tuning is easier. The time investment and frustration in getting this device properly[/u:3lj9h1ys] set up the first time is significant. Then, for me the results were disappointing at 35 yards after lots and lots of patient practice.
Joined: 2/27/2005i cannot say enough about the no-peep, ABSOLUTLY love this thing. One of the best decitions iv’e made concerning archery.
Joined: 7/6/2006I agree with Vol-Cat. I wouldn’t hunt without mine and it is on my third bow.
Yes the setup can be time consuming. However, study the instructions and with patience once you get the hang of the adjustments it will go much easier and quicker.
But the bottom line that makes the effort pay off big time . . . is that is forces correct form, uphill, downhill from a treestand. If one pays attention to what it tells you, torque will never be a problem again.
They are extremely valuable and worth all it takes to get them set up.
In fact my son and two grandsons are planning on getting new Switchbacks after the first of the year and they are all putting N0-Peeps on their bows . . . and for a very good reason. They work!
And you will never have a rotating peep that blocks your vision of the sight pins!AuthorPostsViewing 13 posts - 1 through 13 (of 13 total)
