    Brothers:

    I have a new IQ Retina lock bow sight.

    Not really loving it. Should I be able to both "levels" at the same time. I line one up and then can't see the other.

    1. Something is wrong with my eyes.
    2. Something is wrong with the tork level. I.e. Out of alignment.
    3. The peep is not right. Where I am looking down it at an angle and it not truly horizontal.
    4. Or maybe I should take up horse shoes.

    Scotty

    What size peep are you using? Might need a bigger one.

    I personally steered away from the IQ. If you have good form and shoot correctly you don't need "Retina Lock Technology". I made the switch to a 1 pin and i'm never going back to a multiple pin sight. Try HHA they make the best one pines around. Also close your eyes and get anchored. Then open them and see what needs to be adjusted.

    I went from a spot Hogg real deal to a HHA TE5510. Now that I have set up correctly I was the best money spent. The only issue is they don't have the correct tape for the speed my bow is making. I would think for the money I should be able to get the correct tape instead of hand writing one.

    Did you set up the retina lock? It's best to have a friend help you with the retina lock till you get it centered. Might need a bigger peep sight to. I use a 1/4 in and don't have any issues

    That is exactly what I didn't get one. When shooting bow, gun or even throwing darts. I get real tunnel vision (which I think is a good thing). So now I first focus on the level, than once I am vertical I focus on my pin. I would have to adjust my focus onto the retina lock and I just don't think that would be comfortable or efficient.

    You know you have to come to full draw and align the retina dot correct? By moving the adjusters on the bottom of the sight?
