Testimonials | Shootsp

Along with testing my rather nice Briley chokes, I tested the Shootsp. Now, I am definitely Right Eye Dominant. However, in the past year, I have missed targets for no apparent reason. And analysing what could I have done wrong, I realised my ‘picture’ was not quite right. I have always shot both eyes open, but intermittently, I am now seeing the left-hand side of my barrels. Strange, yes, age maybe, hormones lol, who knows! I was interested in knowing more about the Shoot SP and how this little gadget worked. Steve kindly sent me some to try out, and test. Today I put it on my K80. Well, an initial picture without, again I could see left-hand side. Applied SP, and got quite a strange picture. So I went to Notts and District Gun Club today, to try on Skeet. Targets I know how to shoot. I never looked directly at the SP but it was in my peripheral vision at all times. 25 balls of soot, and no sight of the left-hand side of the barrel. I can truly say, I’m well impressed. I am that impressed, I shall be selling this ingenious bit of kit, and have demo SP’s available, for my clients to test. So if you are having eye dominance issues, please get in contact!!

Eye dominance problems solved with both eyes open! I have been coaching a good number of years and consider the biggest single problem experienced by shooters is how to solve their eye dominance issues. Closing the offending eye loses them their three-dimensional picture, any form of depth perception and is particularly problematic with a straight-driven target as it disappears behind the barrel when applying lead. Using occlusion foil or tape is successful in some cases providing the shooter can accept it in their vision all the time, partially so in others but there are a great many that are uncomfortable with it saying that it distracts them and that they are unable to concentrate on the target as they are focussing on the tape/foil. Some even try to look around it and consequently get an immediate (and catastrophic) disconnect from the target. I was extremely fortunate in being invited to observe the innovative SP (Shot Paraboloid) in action with a group of shooters, all of whom had varying degrees of off-eye dominance problems and one with an intermittent issue. They started by attempting to shoot a straight driven target with no eye dominance correction and all, without exception, managing to miss it up one side or the other. The SP was then fitted to their gun, one by one, and the result was nothing short of miraculous as they all “smoked” the target a lot earlier than they had attempted to shoot it previously and with both eyes open! I have no hesitation in recommending this product to anyone who has an eye dominance issue and I have already added it to my “toolbox” of solutions, it has certainly earned its place. Mike Williams.

Being a right-handed shooter with left eye dominance I have been experimenting with the SP. I have 2 Browning B725’s so have fitted one to mine, the difference is amazing. With both eyes, open mounting the one with SP aligns with my right eye whereas, the one without aligns with my left. It’s going to take a lot of practice to get used to the new sight picture after 50+ years, but this could be the breakthrough for those with cross eye dominance.
I have SHOOTSP’s on stock and coaching versions for temporary fit so clients can experience the effect for themselves. –Dave Brown DBC Leisure

What has the SP done for your shooting?

“I have shot for 40 years with an eye closed. The SP has allowed me to shoot with both eyes open all of the time. I now feel that I can shoot to my full potential and have already hit a PB of 92 out of 100 at a reg.

The new shot picture with both eyes open took a short time to get used to,  but the benefits are well worth that small amount of work.”

What has the SP done for your shooting?            

“The SP has helped my eye dominance, especially when I’m not quite on it or feeling tired.  I’ve positioned it so that I see it when the gun is slightly out of my face but it disappears when the gun is positioned ready for shooting. By doing this it gets my right eye’s attention but it doesn’t come into play when shooting targets, taking away any left eye dominance.”

Would you recommend?   I would if asked yes no problem

Would you use again on you next gun? I have one on my Auto Gun and O/U

What has the SP done for your shooting?

“When I first tried the SP, I was somewhat sceptical, as I didn’t believe that I had any eye dominance issues. I was wrong. The main premise behind the SP is this: can you be certain that you are 100% dominant in the eye you use for shooting?

It has helped me with targets such as Incomers and Crows. I found that I was squinting with my left eye (right eye dominant) most of the time whilst taking the shot. However, after using the SP this didn’t happen. I certainly felt more focused on the target and the upshot of this was that my scores improved. Out of interest, I practiced on the same type of targets with and without the SP on several occasions. Without fail, I felt that the SP helped with target acquisition and focus.”

What are the advantages of coaching with the SP:

“The SP is our coaching solution to solving eye dominance in shooters who want to shoot with both eyes open. We have seen great success across all levels of shooters – from beginners right through to a shooter who has moved up to AAA in ESP. We have shooters who see an instant change, but if a shooter has been shooting for 20 years with one eye closed, a little time is needed for them to cope with all of the new information they are getting from having two eyes open. I would recommend everyone to try it.”

Would you recommend to other coaches? :     YES
