Default hind sight

Anyone use the hind sight system?I'm new to archery and am having trouble with my anchor point. Will this help? I don't want to drop the cash until I get some feed back.

I bought one and have put it on my rig, but have to wait forthe snow to melt before I can shoot it. Christine, did you sight your hindsight inby yourself or did you have the help of a shop? I ask as I hear that they can be difficult to get sighted in, versus a peep?

I had one of the first Hind Sights that they made and while it worked, I had to be very careful at other yardages above 20, instead of putting the next pin in the center of the X I had to keep the 20 yard pin in the X then raise the next pin to be on target.

Another bad point of it was my sight picture was now very cluttered.

IMHO the Timberline No-Peep is a much better option as it clears up the sight picture plus lets you visably see when you are torqueing the bow or if you have not hit your anchor points.

Red Lion,
I had a friend help me with it. It only took a bit of time to tweak it. I didn't even watch the intructions that came with it. It is helpful to have another person there.

I don't have a problem with the cluttered sight window.I understand that some do. It just doesn't bother me I guess. I shot a hog last weekend and even tho' I was looking into the setting sun and aiming at an angry bluff-charging hog the sight allowed me fast and easy target acquisition.
