Default The String Splitter: Your Opinions

Either I'm totally behind the times and just never heard of this product, or it's something new and I still haven't heard of it. In any case, it looks like a traditional peep it's just missing the bottom half. Looks like you only use the top part of the arch to align with your pin guard and you're ready to shoot. I guess the premise is that it allows more light into your field of view, making those after-legal-shooting-hours shots just a little bit easier. Ok, maybe not after legal hours, but close!

In any case, I think it looks like a pretty cool deal. I may even pick one up and try it out. Anyone here seen or used this product before??

I would guess to reduce the weight a bit in order not to slow your string down quite as much?

To cut weight.

I need to look into a bit because I'm pretty sure the company making them is in my hometown here?
(Yep just checked it's a York, PA product.......has to be good )

I really see no improvement over a peep. In fact, I can see that it would be less accurate and probably lead to poor shots as light faded. It's pretty hard to beat concentric circles for consistancy. Did you notice they recomment you have a kisser with it for added accuracy.

Yes it is new..saw it in an Archery Rag about new items. I reckon the benefit is more usable light.?.

Actually it says you "can" use it with a kisser. Probably just to head off all of the "can I use this with my kisser button" questions. As for decreased accuracy, I don't see it. As it is right now I use a rather large peep which only allows me to align the top of my pin guard with the top of the peep itself, leaving a big gap at the bottom that I pay no attention to. This thing eliminates all that material that isn't helping me anyways and allows more light to enter my field of vision. To me, I would think it's a low light improvement. But then again, maybe I'm retarded and/or missing something.

david, I'm with you on this. I agree it would be less accurate IMO.
