UTGrad, I used the Sliding serving when I worked at Hunts. The serving will not usually move on its own. You will have to make it move, if it is tied tight enough (and I am sure Rick tied it tight enough). Some people just like to make themselves appear smarter or superior and will criticize anothers work. Take JayMc's advice and mark your peep and Scott's tip about tieing around the peep. Avoid people who would sabotage you at a tournament. If you really can't get past the thought of the movable serving then I would be happy to meet you sometime and show you how to serve you peep several different ways.

P.S. I had never used this serving before I was shown how to tie it at Hunt's. I was leery of it at first. But after serving several hundred peeps with only two brought back for moving, I am convinced it works pretty well. (the two that were brought back the bow owners admitted to trying to "fix" it from moving, before it actually did move and then they moved it and couldn't ever get back right again)

I shot a peep without it tied in at all for a month on my target bow...never moved. If its not hit on limbs or somethign it shouldnt move.

Having worked at BPS I feel I can say they know a good amount, but most only know one way to do things...thats the hunting way. Pro shops guys know tricks and what you can get away with when just getting set up and refining a set up.

UT Grad, I would recommend getting advice from one source you trust and not from 2-3 different shops. Take everything with a grain of salt and enjoy yourself. You have any woman genes in you? \:\)

My peep is tied in on both ends by a sliding knot. My peep is not tied around the string at all. The pressure of the string and the sliding knots keeps the peep in place.
I actually moved it about half an inch the other day. I just slid the top knot up, moved the peep up, then moved the bottom knot up to make it tight. It works well.

There is a method I use to tie the knots using alternating overhand knots above and below the string to serve about 1/2" on each side of the peep. I wax the serving material before tying , and put the bow in a press to relax the string so I can get the knots very tight .They allow the peep to be moved , but it will stay in place once the serving is moved towards the peep , holding it in place.
It is a method that I learned from an archery technician years ago. Works for me. ;\)

Here is a link explaining the method. Read on down the page:
