Like several others who have left their reviews I no longer have my youthful eyesight. I started researching for alternatives to help me with some sort of solution. I had never thought about shooting without a peep sight, or even heard of it. Shooting without a peep, unbelievable…so I thought..!!! Well needless to say I found the Anchor Sight and some other alternatives, during my searches. But the Anchor Sight just kept peaking my interest. Finally after gathering as much information online that I was able to acquire, I went straight to the source. After many communications with Lynn that ended with a phone call, I made a purchase. It turned out to be the best purchase that I could have made. I set it up as the directions stated. Then after making some adjustments on my sight and then tweaking the Anchor Sight some, I started working on getting it zeroed in on the target. Shot a few groups with it, arrows were touching each other. Not quite zeroed yet, made another adjustment. Shot again to get a group started and on my second shot, I “Robin Hooded ” the 1st arrow…!!! Needless to say it made this 61 year old archer feel like a kid on Christmas Day..!!! I had to make one more adjustment to get it zeroed, but I still cannot get over how tight my groups are now. I don’t ever remember shooting groups this tight with a peep sight. This product and Lynn at Archery Innovations are awesome…!!! Great product and I recommend it 100%… throw the peep sight away…!!!
After telling us he had reduced his arrow groupings by 50% right from the start, a customer described the shooting experience as a Hybrid between instinctive shooting and sighted shooting. This is a perspective worth sharing.
My name is Chad McCook. I spoke with you way back in 2007 when I first tried your awesome product and threw my peep away for good, since then I have shot several great bucks. I realized since 2007 I’ve turned dozens of hunters onto your anchor but I’ve never stopped again to say thanks for producing such a quality piece of equipment that never lets me down. I’m buying a new bow this week and will be purchasing another anchor, (probably my 6th or 7th one over the years). Anyway thanks again, here is a picture of a good buck I got early season last year.
I thought I would drop you a line to let you know that I am so proud I bought the Anchor Sight. Even though I shoot right handed and left eye dominant, this has helped me to focus better with my non-dominate eye, ultimately improving my accuracy. It has helped to break me from some of the bad habits I have nurtured over the years. I am now shooting more accurate with more consistency than any time in my 30 years of shooting a bow. I am more confident than I have ever been. Thanks for making this product available.
Just an update. I know you get testimonial after testimonial, but here’s one you may not have heard. I loved my Bowtech Captain, but I just couldn’t get it to work with my Anchor Sight. Well, one of them had to go and you can bet it wasn’t the Anchor Sight! Sold the Captain, got an Elite and all is well!! I know at one time I bought a blemish from you and it is still in service, now on my nephew’s bow. He won’t give it back so I need one for my back up bow. Thanks as always for your time and your innovation.
Hi Lynn, as I said earlier, I do love my Anchor Sight and can’t see myself shooting any other system that is currently available. I started out about 6 years ago, with the peep system that the retailer set me up with. I could tell right off that these old eyes didn’t like the peep when shooting in low light. I started looking for options. Tried the peep eliminator that has a V sight like the rear sight on a rifle. I was never able to shoot this system very accurately. Then I tried the Hind Sight. It was better, and I killed my first archery deer with it, but I still couldn’t get the kind of consistent accuracy I was looking for, and a lot of the target was obscured by the cross-hairs. I then found the Anchor Sight and decided to give it a try. It was pretty simple to set up, and just seemed like a much more natural feel with my anchor set where it felt the most natural and repeatable to me. I’ve been shooting it for 4 or 5 years now and I think it’s at least as accurate as a peep. I took a lot of flack from my hunting buddy’s and almost everyone at the pro shop and 3d range, telling me that if I really wanted to be a good archer I needed to put a peep sight on my bow. They don’t say that anymore. I’m not the greatest archer around, but in 5 seasons, I’ve killed 3 deer and 3 elk. Placed in about a dozen 3d tournaments with 5 firsts, including the Washington State, senior freestyle championship for WSAA this year. A few of the guys I shoot with hold various state records and I’ve beaten them all at one time or another. They no longer flip me crap about my Anchor Sight.
I have been shooting with an AS for 6 years. My accuracy in the field improved dramatically. I am comfortable out to 50 yrds, and shot a buck last year at 49 yrds. I had bow torque issues when shooting a peep in hunting situations that are now a thing of the past.
I purchased an AS last year to FINALLY get ride of my peep. Not only did I accomplish the flushing of the peep, but the by product was better shooting form and 10 to 15 minutes extra shooting light. I plan on buying one for my 14 year old soon. Great product!!
I can say it has helped me! So much that I bought two, one as back up. I’m right handed but left eye dominant. I still have to close my left eye but I anchor in the same place constantly and my groups are much tighter.
The archery anchor sight has been a dream come true for me. I have been struggling for the past several years with aging eyes and have lost several opportunities shooting nice bucks because I could not see thru my peep sight. I knew I had to do something or lose those early morning and late evening shots. I wear glasses or contacts but when I go into the woods it seems the glasses or contacts appear foggy or blurred and I do not see clearly with them on. I have trouble shooting with glasses or contacts in as well. I installed this anchor sight on my bow and now I can shoot right at daylight or dark without any problems at all. I recommend any one with those types of problems to try this sight and you will be amazed how well it works. I would like to thank Lynn Asher for this wonderful invention and I hope this will help all of you with aging eyes the way it has helped me.
