A great thread.  I don't have problems with pin blur 'yet'.  Typically my problem is a really shaky peep and pin when an elk walks in front of me.  I had the pro-shop check my set up and they told me, "...it's not the bow!"

I am far sighted and had the same problem for years. I solved the problem by going down to Costco and getting glasses that are far sighted and a very small portion with bifocals on the bottom. I have Transition glasses and sights are fussy. So now I have glasses for hunting and target practice and work great. I also shoot a pistol and rifle and made me a better shot. I also went to a single pin with a micro glow pin.  This might help you

I dont need glasses, but im curious on what you said, does it not screw up your peripheral vision?  Your ability to catch small movement at a distance?

Wearing glasses and hunting/hiking/huffing the way I do isn't an option for me.
I would forever be lost in the fog:)

I've accepted the fact that I'm just moving up on the wrong side of the food chain.
At least I won't see it coming!

I ordered the various "Verifier" lens strengths and the "tool".
Clarifier focuses the target. Verifier focuses the pins.
I will be able to look through the different lenses at a pin I hold at arms length, at home.
I will then know what strength of lens to get while still keeping my target in focus.
I can then return the tool and order the correct lens.

If you are in the Olympia area during the week Burn let me know and you can check it out.

Specialtyarch.com makes em and has helpful tech folks if anyone is interested.
2Many, I went through picking a verifier last fall, I bought a 5 but it fuzzed out the target just a little.  I'm getting a 4 and moving the 5 to the backup bow.  I use +2.25-2.50 cheaters and the 6 I tried was waaaay too much.  You can get them on Amazon or call Specialty and talk to Michael, either works.

Hope this helps
