Peep or no peep?

Postby ajmorell » Tue Jul 27, 2010 7:43 am

Thinking about adding a peep to my bow but still undecided. I shoot it pretty well the way it's set up now (just use tip of my nose and kisser button as anchor points) but I'm wondering if a peep wouldn't help me shoot even better. For those of you who have shot with and without a peep what are your thoughts?

IMO a peep is a must, it would help you by getting everything in line better and its all about consistancy in archery. if you can get the same anchor point every single time you will shoot better, looking through a peep helps me look right at the sights every time at the same angle.

how big are your groups at say 20 yards?

@ 20 yards, 2" maybe 3"

id expect a little tighter with a peep like 5 arrows pretty much touching at 20 yards

heres one id suggest- or this style of peep, find a size that fits you nice and you can see through

I've read really good things about the G5 Meta. Regarding size, I've heard bigger is better for hunting as it is easier to use in low-light situations, but smaller will shrink groups down even more.

i like mine, you are right reguarding the sizes so if you do any hunting or target shooting or vise versa go with a good middle size, and go look at them in the store if you can to get an idea, 1/4in would be a goog size to start looking at :thumbsup:

Buy a "NO PEEP"and don't look back....takes about ten min. to put on. :thumbsup:

You can get the same anchor point every single time. I get one game fast because I know everything is set, just point and shoot.

Hope this helps;

I have shot both, and a peep will tighten up your groups a bit.. So i say get a peep. And if you learn to shoot both eyes open its even better.

I took mine off and love it!
Set a nocking pt.on your string or serve in something to anchor on...my point touched the tip of my nose and no peep to look inot.

I shoot the Hind Sight and I shoot so tight at 30 yards I do not dare to shoot more than one broadhead or I am replacing Blazer Vanes.

Ended up getting a peep installed. It has shrunk my groups down a bit. I like having yet another anchor point.

Look at one of these.....

For hunting situations, early morning and late evenings with low light this Peep is the best. lets all the light you need to see and shoot in low light conditions. Well worth a look.
