    I've always had a problem with my sights being adjusted low for some reason but it was never a big problem with fixed pins.I shot this scope for the first time today and it is bottomed out at 10 yrds.I got my peep where it comes to my eye and the sight is centered.Can't figure it out.

    Are you using a drop away?

    Could be a couple different things with noc point or un-even tiller but most likely either the Peep or rest is too low. Raising one or both will help.

    What's you setup? Sight rest bow?

    What is the distance from center of your d-loop or nock point to the center of your peep? There is no set distance but most I've seen are between 5.5" and 6.5"

    Alot of sight/scope setups have a bracket/mount that can be rotated to fit almost anyone

    Pics would be great

    Sight is Toxonic 9" bar 4"sight and scope, rest is Limb Driver, and the bow is a 60# Black Ice.Like I said I've always had a problem with my sights being low.But I just changed the draw length on this one and didn't change the draw stop.Could that be the problem?It felt good but I don't know.

    Looked the sight over again and found more mounting holes.Moved it to the bottom holes.I'll shoot it tomorrow and see if that helped any.By the way thanks for the help.

    If your sites have always been low,,,it could be and anchor point thing as much as an equipment thing.(.02)

    I would take it into a shop because you likely need a few things adjusted and since your bow has been shooting low anyway, any changes would "compound" the issue... that's what I would do anyway to save a little time and get my bow shooting milk caps at 40 yards :claphands:

    I had a problem with running out of adjustment on my sight when I switched to a shorter ATA bow like the Black Ice due to my particular anchor point and the position of the mounting holes in the sight window. When I went back to a 38" ATA bow I again had enough room to adjust my sight low enough to sight in. Sounds like you might have the same problem as me. Rather than changing my anchor that I have been using for 12 years, I swiched bows.

    Thanks for the info.I moved the sight to the other mounting holes and I've got it out to 40 yrds so far.
