I shot with pin sights and no peep sight for 20 years as did most in that era. Have to have a very solid and consistent anchor point. I would still be doing it that way today if I didn't have eyeglasses getting in the way.

You can still use that rest with sights. If you don't want it, I'll take it off your hands.

Does anyone have a picture of the module sizes? For now the overly long draw is fine, but I will want to switch it eventually.

I ordered a 49 3/8 length Hunter string made of x from bow string depot. I'm also going to see about getting an IQ ultra lite 3 pin next weekend, it's either that or I order my arrows. Think I'm going to skip the hindsight and just use the IQ retina lock to avoid having a peep sight.

I need a 29" draw length. I'm not certain on the let off, I guess 80% because why not, unless there is a good reason to go with 65% .

Fingers 65% or less for fingers. So I'd say 12's for fingers and F's if you want higher let off with a release.

Congradulations on your purchase of an Oneida strike eagle. The Oneida strike eagle is a great finger shooting bow.
Apologies for the late reply here but I have been preoccupied with personal issues.
As for the rest the flipper rest they work great like everyone said.
There are many great finger shooting rests and I have found most my customers prefer the bodoodle timberdoodle.
Most pin shooters shoot a peep but not all. The previous owner may have preferred to shoot without one.
Try different set ups and then use the one you like best.
Shoot what you like we do :mrgreen:

Thank you for the reply American Eagle, I might be calling you in the future for some new grips.

In the meantime, I can't seem to find anyone selling the 12 modules, would the new ones that Oneida sells fit? Their price, $64.99, is insane, but if that's my only option what choice do I have? Also, does anyone know what size Allen wrench is supposed to hold the grip on?

Another quick question. The foam in the Tuscarora quiver is done. What is my best option for replacing it? I've read of people using spray foam and silicone, the later being particularly interesting, would these be good options?

I work at a packaging company... lots of different foams in various densities... I could send you a piece large enough to fill the quiver... you'd have to do the final cutting to fit it in the quiver.

Spray foam does work but it tends to make a mess and really doesn't last all that long and it looks like hell to be honest.

Gerry, that sounds pretty good to me. That way I might be able to get better quality materials. Hopefully Joe shows up and can pass you both my email.
