    Bunny was having this problem, but that was because he was closing both eyes . What size is your peep now? You could always go to a bigger one. I use a 3/32 peep for all occasions and I don't have a problem with it.

    i was thinking that you could maybe like file it out or drill it out to make it bigger

    I have a super ball peep, so it has apertures that screw into it and I drill those bad boys out when I need to!

    There pretty cheap (unless your using the G5), I'd buy a new one before I tore my hands up trying to drill one. Plus, you would have a hard time keeping the hole true.

    Another problem may be that the string is rotated so that your really only looking through half or less of the peep.
    That look on my face is not concern, its shock at your utter stupidity!

    But don't drill it while it's in the string!

    You did'nt mention what type of peep. If it's a plastic one with the tube, remove it and drill it if you want to. If it's aluminum just get the next size bigger. I would'nt drill the aluminum for a couple reasons. It's hard to hold onto, and you'll likely end up leaving a burr on there somewhere that could cut your string when you re-install it. As stated, don't chance drilling either while it's on the string, not worth the risk.
