    I'm shooting a prime rize bow, 60lb at a 29" draw length and shooting 400 grain hunter xt arrows. Here's the sight I have on my bow.

    I originally had the sight set on the 4th set of holes with the elevation setting as low as it would go and was shooting about 2" low at 20 yards. I wondered if moving it forward or backward would help me get closer. So after doing a bit of googling I read that I'd need to move the sight closer to the eye to make it shoot higher. I did that by moving it to the 2nd set of holes. Now I'm about 1" low. So, can anyone suggest anything else to get it on target? Thanks.

    The bracket can be turned upside down if you run out of downward adjustment. That will move the sight ring up and give you more room to adjust. It's designed that way so don't worry about it affecting the React pin adjustments.

    Is your bow paper tuned your arrow could just be hitting weird make sure everything else is in time and turned on your bow first before sighting it it

    Only other option after flipping the housing is to move your peep up.

    Did the same thing with my Elite Synergy. Fixed my issue as well.

    Are you sure you have enough arrow speed for the sight? Those React sights have a minimum required arrow speed if I remember correctly.

    Funny how that works. I didn't have to turn my mount over on my Synergy.

    Of course different draw lengths and even a difference between a regular React and the V5 could make a big difference.
