Default Who shoots a kisser?

Just like it says....
Iíve noticed a lot of people dont. Ive shot one all of my life but my serving came undone on my bow today so I took it off.
Anyhow, I know my bow guy will talk me out of adding one to my nee VXR(if it ever comes in).
Just started shooting without mine today. It is weird but Im sure I will eventually get used to it.
My groups at 40 yds are terrible without it.

If it works for you why not put it back on? Who cares if your bow tech doesnt find it necessary. Most important thing is being consistent, and the kisser has been a consistent part of your pre shot routine for years. Its how you anchor...

I’ve shot a kisser since I started bowhunting at the age of 11. I will never be without one.

I’ve considered trying out the Bowmar Bose Button. It’s a little smaller and makes a lot of sense. Might check them out

I do. I personally prefer the kisser button. I had one on my Hoyt and I have one on my new VXR as well.

I don't care for the guy either. But, why would anyone want to shoot Tom Herman?

Had the nose button on my old bow before I got my new one. I have no complaints and will probably put one on this new bow, I sometimes have problems staying in the peep. Keeps you in the peep for sure

Shot with a kisser for about 10 years now and probably won’t ever go without. Every time I get a new string put on and have the tech install a new kisser they usually try to discourage it but it ain’t their bow and it works for me.

always shot with a kisser. Back when i worked in an archery shop, it was a great way to be able to try different releases as long as i had the same anchor point at all times.

I do, sometimes when you have to lean over or some weird position I always know everything is lined up.

I have never used one and never had a problem with a consistent anchor. I was told the corner of your mouth moves around to much. Now after 20 years with the same release I switched to a thumb release. I really like it but my anchor is not as consistent. So now I am thinking about one.

I like them, but don't use one myself, I like to think that I have my anchor point down by now.

I have always used one and will continue. Don't worry about what some tech might say to you about it. It's your bow and your money.

Always had one. Couple years ago while getting my new bow the archery shop stting up my new bow said nobody uses them anymore. That maybe one of the reasons I didnt go back there when I bought my new VXR. I will be putting one on my new bow.

Looked up a thread on kisser buttons. Saw this one from a while back. I was thinking of the same Bowmar Nose button. Any feed back after all this time.


Thanks.

Still using one. When my nose gets cold, it’s definitely less sensitive. For the most part, it makes a really consistent anchor location. Been thinking about running a nose button for nose and mouth with my next string change. This way I could lose the peep sight.

Thanks for the feedback. What I like is something to get on anchor in a hurry if a quick shot is needed. And with the smaller nose button, it would seem like the effect on the string would be a lot less.

Nose button along with serving tied in a big enough square knot to act as a kisser button.

Sounds weird, but the combination of the two works.
