    Just one eye. I shoot right handed but my left eye is dominant. So I kinda have to.

    Thank goodness I haven’t tried the Z7 yet. ;)
    As what I hear from everybody here is that once you tried it you want to have one. So I decided not going to shoot it before I got the money, just to be safe!!

    Both eyes :thumbup
    Once you get the hang of it there is no going back. With both eyes you can see the arrow so much better.

    X2 Never could see most of my shots but when I started shooting with both eyes I could see every shot. :thumbup

    I’m in a similar boat as yorick. I shoot left handed, but I’m right eye dominant. So….no choice. One eye it is.

    Both eyes … beaten into me by my MGST MC and USNA Rifle Team Coach …
    anyone shooting with one eye closed is shooting under a handicap … not opinion, but fact. :thumbup

    Yes, I know. With a rifle with scope I can keep both my eyes open. But with my bow I’ve got to concentrate so hard on the peep with both eyes open that it will influence the rest of my shot.

    When shooting rifle competition, I shot Anschutz peep apertures, same as a peep in a bowstring.

    With both eyes open you may see a double image … this indicates eye dominance problem, or wrong peep focal length … peep too far away from the dominant eye. When shooting rifles, we changed the stock length to match, with a bow you have to change string angle to match.

    That is why I can’t shoot short ATA bows with steep string angles that move the peep farther away from the eye.

    Its all about finding a bow that fits you, rather than you fitting a bow. [=}=]

    This is completly true. But my left eye is dominant. I’ve tried to shoot left handed and completely failed at that. So a right handed bow fits me better. ;)

    With a rifle and scope I indeed have a double vision.

    Ah, a true handicap … I’ve shot with those with such handicaps and been beaten soundly. Talent can overcome any handicap, but the challenge and dedication to do so is admirable… and awesome.

    … I’ve been beaten by one-armed archers in wheelchairs, out shot on a dove hunt by a one-armed man in a wheelchair. Didn’t make me feel less, just made me realize how much more talent and dedication they had … Best Man Wins. :thumbup

    I was a one eye shooter until last year. Read it here or somewhere else about two eyes open. Changed to two eyes and was surprised at what I was not seeing all these years. Like said it takes a little getting used to but I am convinced.
