But one common issue is that the peep sight rotates when you draw.  You can run into these issues even when you have attached the peep sight perfectly.

The riser is one of the most essential parts of the bow. Together with the string it’s the only thing you hold when you shoot your bow. Also, since everything connects to your riser, it’s like the motherboard of your bow.  If you buy a good riser, it can last a lifetime. The limbs and string wear out, but a riser won’t. So, investing in a good riser does make a lot of sense!  But choosing from all the different options available can be rather difficult. There are so many brands, sizes, and form factors that it is extremely difficult to make this choice.  If you don’t have any li ..read more

How to sight in a multipin sight 
ImproveYourArchery.com
by Tim van Rooijen
6M ago
A multipin sight is an excellent tool for hunters and 3D archers. The benefit of having multiple pins is that you can configure them each for a separate distance. Since the arrow drops at long range, we need to aim the bow farther up to account for this.  On single-pin sights, you must move the sight if you shoot at different distances. But if you have a multipin sight you just pick a different sight pin to aim with. This offers you a lot of flexibility but also makes it more challenging to configure the sight.  In this article, I will make this process as simple as possible. If you ..read more

If you have a riser with an ILF limb fitting, there are a lot of different bow limbs to choose from. From bow limbs that cost only $50 to limbs that cost more than $700. The limbs are constantly under stress while you are shooting a bow, so they need to be durable.  But how can you test the durability if you are buying the limbs in a store or web shop?
