    1) what are the pros & cons of a taller vs shorter front bead?

    2) if i change my front bead to a taller one, would my poi go lower? i know it would if my vision automaticaly uses the top of each bead for the sight picture. i really dont know what part of the bead our eyes use to shoot, because my focus is on the target. what do you folks think? thanks milt luther

    If you use the bead for pointing, your POI will be lower with a higher bead. The shot moves in the opposite direction you move the bead.

    If you shoot off the end of your barrel, a higher bead will add distraction.
