Rick at Dickson Sportsman tied my peep in with a sliding knot so I could adjust the peep up or down if needed. Well, I was only able to get the top knot to budge a little. The knots are pretty tight. A guy at BPS told me this is a junk knot and the peep will move out of position. I have the peep where I want it now and don't want it to move. Will it move with the sliding knot after shooting?

Never seen or heard of a sliding knot so if I was betting on a guy that works at a pro shop and a guy at bps. Pro shop everytime. I may have to look that sliding knot up, sounds interesting.

It is a Slip knot or Sliding? I've never heard or seen a sliding knot.

I have mine tied in so that I can move them up or down the string. After you get it set mark the top and bottom of the peep with a sharpie. You can add a drop of glue to the spot where the serving material crosses the bow string to hold it in place. If you do that you should plan on not moving it again. I like mine to be moveable so I can try different releases with slightly different anchor points. My peep on my hunting bow is not moveable.

If you serve a section above and below the peep you pretty much can't move it. If you just tie a knot with serving thread around the peep you can slide the whole thing up and down the bow string.

A guy I shot with at an ASA was kind rude. Somebody slid his peep all the way down to his center serving Sunday morning before we shot. He didn't have it marked and didn't realize it with enough time to get it set back correctly. He had a loooong day.

Thats what I do with my peep too . I serve the peep above and below the peep , and once I have it set , I also wrap serving around the peep in the groove in my Meta peep.
I would trust the guys at Dicksons to do it right. I wouldn't pit two shops against each other comparing their service . They are always going to criticize another shops work to gain your business.

Yep, I'm a little OCD Scott, but it helps me lock into something and work hard at it. I can't help it, but I will try! It does help getting tips like marking the peep with a Sharpie. I have learned alot from your tips and others, so do y'all take cash or check ;\) I just marked the string where the peep lays and now I know where it should be if it moves. Rick at Dickson Sportsman served it just like you described. I talked about the peep when I dropped by BPS and he dissed the slip knot, but he is a good guy and I buy stuff from them. I walked out with a 3/16 Meta Peep for hunting and will probably drop in to by some more stuff. Did I mention I'm having fun? \:D
