Peep eliminator
« on: July 21, 2016, 07:32:34 PM »
          Anyone else use one of these?  I put one on last year after shooting nothing but a peep for years and it's been interesting.  Definately has it's pros and cons but if anything it sure forced me to learn more about form, anchor point, bow torque etc.  Curious to hear from others that may have one on their bow.

I have tried a few peepless methods but keep going back to a peep.  One of the guys I shoot with has always been a peepless shooter and it has worked well for him.  For me, I want something that is automatic for me when I am in a hunting situation.  after 20 years of using a peep its pretty automatic now!  lol

         I find the peepless pretty automatic after shooting it a bit.  I never had any real accuracy problems with the peep until low light where is why I wanted to try something new.  That and trying to shoot a peep without the rubber band got me frustrated because I could never seem to get the thing to line up right.  I could have spent more time with it but decided to try something else.  I put a set of world's best strings on my bow and they seem to get awesome reviews but man the set I have seems to never end with the stretching.  Laugh at me but they seem to stretch a heck of a lot more than the factory strings my bow came with.  I am constantly dicking with the bow to keep the timing right and the cam lean to a minimum.  And noisy.  A pair of string leetches that quieted the old string does nothing for this one.  Tried some rubber puff ball type silencers and that seems to help.

         I shoot the rifle sight type setup and it's fairly easy to shoot but one of downfalls are that when using the method where you line up your rear sight to the front yardage pin you want to use the sights end up so close together the sight window is plugged up to much.  It's easier to get used to as I was always a center the pin in the peep guy rather than a center the sight guy.  I've moved to the method of using the bottom bin as your reference and holding the appropriate pin on target and that opens the pins up a lot but it's a bit of screwing around but liking it better so far.  It's more along the lines of centering the sight with a peep.  Downfall is that since your using your bottom pin as a reference to get that pin to max out at your furthest distance it's a lot of little tweaks to get that and the rest of the pins to line up right.  With practice it works but it means slight changes to form and anchor.  Either method a guy uses it's awesome how much feed back you get,  if your torquing your bow you will know instantly.

          Eventually going to have to switch back if I want to shoot much farther but for now it works and I like not having the peep.  If anything I'll be a better shooter if I do go back to the peep.

Sounds complicated to me.  Peep works well for me in all lights.  Even did some night hunting with my bow when I was in Africa and it worked very well.  Nocturnals looked great on those shots!  I have never used a rubber tube and have very little issue with peep rotation.  Certainly I will shoot 100+ arrows through a new string before i fine tune the bow and do a final set on the d-loop and peep.  After that I have never had an issue with peep rotation.

As for the Worlds Best - I agree.  the last 2 sets I have gotten have both been terrible.  The last set of cables were at least 1/4" shorter than the specifications for the bow.  I ended up getting my money back and buying a set from Scorpion.  They seem to be good.

        Your eyes must be better than mine I have a pretty hard time at dusk with a peep.

         Might give scorpion a try next set or winners choice.  Have heard a lot of good things about both.
