And using an Asian guy for the demo is probably racist too.

 

Well they said the string should have a slope.

The purpose of this visual training exercise is to condition your eyes to be faster and more precise with convergence and focusing, which should help with shooting. 

Curious to hear the thoughts of others with regards to trying this for a few months.  Seems to me that if the eyes can be corrected through visual training it would be a better approach to take versus; taping, squinting, shooting with one eye closed, or surgery...

these Brock strings are pretty cheap if too lazy to make one

They would sell more if they called it the Glock bead or CZ bead set.

 

They've been selling for years under the trade name "anal bead set" and are very practical for shooting as most advice on the internet seems to be pulled out of somebody's ass!

From shooting with both eyes open to anal beads in 43 posts.
This is why I love doodie.


On another note, I'm watching the LL world series and they are talking about eye black for reducing glare. Any practical application in USPSA? Maybe GoG can speak to any of the old timers trying it out?

The Brock Bead video is interesting. They do a good job illustrating convergence. The exercises they show do not unhinge convergence and accommodation, but I think with a little modification they probably could do that. Would just need to keep a far bead single while also making a close bead sharp and clear. Lots of ways to work this stuff.

Hmmm, might want to try that out at this place. I hear the backstops are a wee bit bright about twice a day.

Are you referring to the Tanfoglio BOSS Xtreme Bead Set now found in the Pro Shop?

*update*

 

For the past year I've been using a 10ft brock string (4 bead version), for 5 minutes a day everyday.  This combined with a handful of other eye exercises has improved how quickly & clearly I can change focal distances.  Also the ghost imaging issues I was having before are not as pronounced as they were.

Partial credit for my improved visual health goes out to Mr_White, as his writings on vision/eye training is what sparked my motivation to integrate "eyeball exercises" it into my daily routine.

I'm fucked up, the first thing I thought of when I heard everyone here was using beads was far more disturbing.

Well played. 

 

10' seems ambitious but with only 4 beads I guess it is do-able.

I think that experimenting with both eyes open vs one, and also target focus vs front sight vs a fixed focal depth somewhere a little beyond the front sight, is a useful experience, and that every shooter will likely develop preferences. There's no one right way to aim, it doesn't matter what you see or think you see, only that you can reliably hit targets quickly. I have tried all of those, and know what works well for me. I use a mix of both eyes open and one eye mostly shut. I don't find the need to shut it completely, but to squint it about halfway or so, which still gives me some peripheral vision while at the same time quieting the visual noise in the sight picture. I use both eyes open out to 10 yards typically, (for open targets and full sized poppers) but it depends on the array. If it starts close, I'll probably stay both eyes open because I started that way, unless the shots really get hard. If it starts far, I may not, but whatever. As far as focal depth, I have found that I prefer a target focus with both eyes open, and a front sight focus with one eye squinted, and I think using both is an asset. I think that the biggest misconception is that both eyes open all of the time is an advantage. If it works for you, then sure, but if it's just too weird, screw it, don't do it. I don't, and it didn't hold me back from making M or GM in different divisions, or from winning matches ever. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Actually homophobia is the correct term being that it stems from the idea that people who dislike gays are afraid of their own homosexual tendencies so they attack in others what they dislike about themselves.
