Got a new bow a couple of days ago, (G5 Quest Rogue), and after I had been shooting it for a couple of days I noticed the peep sight was turning and rotating. I heard I may have to get new strings but I just got the bow and was wondering if there were any other options, thanks.October 8, 2013 at 8:33 pm #5905
If the bow is brand new it may just need to settle in. Or maybe not – you may need to either: 1. get a good set of strings/cables on the bow or 2. put a tube peep in.
Myself, the first thing I do, even with a new $1000 or more bow is put new custom strings on. Go to the forums on Archery Talk and research this (and other questions)October 8, 2013 at 9:24 pm #5915
If the strings were correctly split for installing the peep you need to relax the the string in a press or other ways , and remove it at the lower cam and give it a 1/2 twist with the loop in the direction you want it to go back to . It should behave better after that .October 8, 2013 at 10:11 pm #5923
Thank you both for the quick responses. I will give it a little longer and if it still rotates I will makes some changes.October 10, 2013 at 6:32 pm #6053
U can also rotate the strands one at a time to get the peep to turn from back to front I use a ball point pen ,but slide the serving up and down away from the peep if it is served in you will have to unserve it and reserve itNovember 1, 2013 at 9:45 pm #8313
If the peep sights are rotating (I’ve had this problem twice with my Mathews mainly because some of my idiot friends have dry fired my bow on accident) there is a simple solution, just go to your local archery retailer or sporting goods store. My peep sight has rotated a bunch because of my buddies but I always just take it to Dick’s (not where I got the bow but the retailer there is a great guy) and they will fix it for free. No hassle, maybe because I have spent a ton of money there on accessories, but if you just go in and tell them to readjust your peep sight they will do it in 5-10 mins. Some may think that they guys that work there are yahoos but the guy I go to is an avid bow-hunter and has taught me a ton of what I know, most hunting retailers know what they are talking about. All they have to do is go in the back, crimp the bow and slide the peep sight barely and it works great afterwards. Need to just get my friends to figure it out so I can stop going back :(…they don’t get the trigger mech…November 2, 2013 at 5:43 pm #8343
Now that’s funny there . To fix a peep take it to a shop . FYI if he just slides the peep your sight pins will be off .November 5, 2013 at 10:19 pm #8490
You either reset it or twist the string as has been said .I dont know about just sliding it .After years of competition and hunting I never heard that one.
Well here I am .November 11, 2013 at 9:01 pm #8885
Got it fixed thank youDecember 1, 2013 at 11:20 am #9774
you can also fix a rotating peep by sliding your servings . if you slide them up it will rotate your peep in one direction , if you slide them down it will rotate in the other direction. experiment until your peep is lined up again. way easier than putting your bow in a press.December 29, 2013 at 10:51 pm #10878
A simple way to adjust your peep after the break in period is to simply move your upper string silencer up or down and watch your peep magically change positions if it needs a little more help move the bottom string silencer some too.
