3) Servre a 3/8" long knot above peep before where string separates.

Sometimes it's not your peep that is twisting. It's actually your loop migrating around your string with each shot. If it's kicked off to the side when you hook your release to it, chances are, that's the culprit. When you draw, it straightens out but to do so, it twists the string.

I agree thunderhead.
Make sure you D-Loop is tied correctly. The 2 knot should be opposite of each other , if they are the same. Around and Around we go. You never get peep to stay alignrd

I get that the D loop may rotate, But :

At rest, without you touching the string, if the peep is sideways, then it is sideways period. No one is touching the loop at rest. Some tin wong.

In that case, you could actually intentionally have your loop to the side so that when you draw, it rotates the string and peep back straight again.

Thunderhead, this is the way mine is set. At rest, my peep is rotated to the left but when I draw back, it rotates to the right until it straightens out at full draw. Every ten shots or so, I have to put a slight right turn on the peep to keep it perfectly straight.

Iíve had strings in the past that were bad for peep rotation and I couldnít correct it, no matter how many fixes I threw at the problem. I chalked it up to poorly made strings.

Most times, a twist in the string or a loop adjustment cures the problem, in my experience.
