    I love it.
    No problems of a peep, nice clear field of view, shootin with two eyes open.

    A bit of history: I bought my switchback with a 5pin sight. Being a true DIY I studied some books and read alot online (mainly AT). I also like gadgets and purchased the Aimpoint, and bowmount. I bought the bow just before I left for Tanzania and took the bow apart and brought it along.
    There I put it back together, and tuned it with the 5 pin sight. After a month or so shooting with the 5 pin sight i put the aimpoint on. It took me and my dad a little time to figure out what we were doing but it worked out in the end.
    I can hit the target out to 60 meters ( just not hold a group), my form isn't up to that just yet. I am planning to join a club here soon and have my dad bring my bow back drom Tanzania so I can improve my skills as an archer.

    Bow - Diamond stinger 27" draw and poundage is at 70lbs
    arrows - carbon express maxima
    rest - trophy taker
    Site - truglo range rover

    I know I have an older setup but it works great for me and it puts the game down so if it's not broken don't fix it. At least until I can convince my wife to let me get a new setup if you know what I mean.
