Default timberline no peep

(Arthur P. i did a search in the forum and couldnt find anything...lol)

anyone know anything about them. seems to me that they would eliminate the need for the kisser button and the peep sight on the string and by removing those 2 items would give you a few more feet per second arrow speed.
heres the web site http://www.timberline-archery.com/default1.asp

Yep, works like it says and as you described. I've been using them for ~ 3 or 4 years now with much success.

Some people love them, some tried them and didn't like them.

They work for me.
One thing I've noticed is torquing the bow while at full draw in the stand is something I have caught myself doing thanks to this gadget. I just fix the circles (move my wrist or tilt the bow) and then release.

I have used one and I would recommend it. I bit of a pain to set up, but it works well once you get it there. I used one to train myself to shoot without a peep. I used it during the summer and then got good enough at repeating my form I was able to take it off and just shoot without a peep or the No Peep.

I wouldn't want to target shoot this way, but I'm plenty accurate enough at hunting distances.

I tried the no peep, the hindsite and another that was similar and I liked the no peep the best.

Just don't mess up and try and aim with it like I did. Never did find that arrow.

Looks interesting but I'm not an olympic shooter. I'm a hunter who finds himself shooting from small tree stands and awkward positions. I'm not sure I would benefit with this.
I use A Predator IV Pendulum sight. If I want to use fixed pins, I'd still use the Predator sight bas and peep site. The peep is one of the biggest I've seen. Plenty big to see in the darkest conditions. What I like about this system is that there is always a visual anchor point check. Simply line up the glow ring (sight guard) with the edge of the peep sight. No mater how twisted out of shape I get in A tree stand, I can line up the glow in the dark guard with my peep and know I'm anchored properly with a quick look. Becomes second nature after awhile. I believe many fixed pin sights with a circle guard around the pins can be used the same way...? I don't know, I started out with the Predator IV and it's the ONLY thing I haven't changed over the years.

The nopeep is tailor made for situations like yours. After practicing with the nopeep, you'll find it only takes a split second to verify alignment. Your not supposed to be fixated on it while aiming-a quick glance and that's it. You can be any sort akward position, but with the nopeep you can get properly aligned and make the shot.

I didn't like it.....Does it work? Yes. But for me, it was too much to watch, too distracting. And, it is a terrible PITA to set up, or it was for me anyway.

And, if you're getting one for a hoyt bow, make sure you get the long mounting bracket.

You are probably right. I haven't tried it, but I did see it a few years ago and thought that it might be an option. I was looking for something that would allow enough light in to shoot at coyote's in the dark. I was pleasantly surprised that I could with the large peep sight I have now, twice I've taken coyote in the dark with it since then. No need to change,(unless I find the need to see black or dark brown critters in the dark) but I think both work in the same way.
One thing that makes me wonder is when I draw with buck fever and my jaw drops open, I know right away because my guard and peep don't line up. I get a visual cue to shut my mouth and then everything comes together. Do you get that instant visual cue with the peepless sight? Once I figured out that buck fever opens my mouth, I learned to instantly recognize and correct that problem. Same goes with torquing my bow. One look at my sight and I know if something is off. Does the nopeep work the same? I would think it would, it just might not look as obvious as it does with my big peep and glow guard. I thought it was an interesting product, just never saw the need to change. Maybe as I get older and my night vision starts to fail me, the peepless may become a better option.

If you're tourqing the bow, or off of your anchor point, the no-peep will let you know instantly. I've shot one the last 3 years and have no intention of ever going back to a peep.
