    I lost my peep today it was there on one shoot then it was gone. So I ajusted my sight becouse I wanted to keep shooting. Did just as good with out. question is what kind of peep is good for hunting and small or a open v type.

    I use one of the blue meta peeps from G5. For hunting you'll want a large aperture peep probably 3/16" or 1/4" to let in add much light as possible during dawn and dusk hours. Circle or V style is a personal preference thing though. I've been thinking of maybe trying a V type, but I like my meta

    I shoot the 1/4" Hunter Meta - no complaints on it one bit. Get it set and tied in properly and you will be set. Spiker here I think can hook you up with one power-coated to match your strings if you get in touch with him.

    It's not well known, but Martin actually markets it in their catalog. It's called Predator's View. If you're looking for something mostly for hunting this thing works very well. Google it and if you have any questions give me a yell.

    Nice, I've been wondering about those myself. Once you get it all set up and some shots down range, let us know what you think about it!

    Alright i just tried posting the thread i started not too long ago about this same topic.
    I ended buying the ep red eye because they were on clearanced at the local gander mtn. what i learned about the string splitters is "don't tie them in too tight or they could cut your string.
    i may come off as a smartalic towards the end of this thread, just too many choices. a guy could spend a hundred dollars just trying different peeps till he finds one he really likes

    I've heard and seen the same thing about the String Splitter. I agree that a possible solution is to not serve it too close on the botton side.

    Red Eye? I've read about these things cutting strings because of sharp edges. Be sure and smooth them out. There are other peeps similar like Specialty or Fletcher that have had much less problems and frankly, if you want it red then some spray paint can take care of that. Not saying the Red Eye still has those problems. Just be aware of what's happened to others in the past.

    do you think some colors would work better in low light? lets say i use my dremel to polish it silver to my match my silver black h&s strings and stainless screws. or is a dark color better to look through?
    BTW i learned about the split peep string cutting problems from you, so thanks barry.
