    Default magnifiction lens for hunter class

    has anyone ever used a magnification lens with fixed pins in the hunter class. Ive been thinking about it real hard I just don't know what to buy,2x, 3x,4x,or 6x. I think im gonna buy a 4x lens and give it a go

    using a 4x-6x lens will most likely require you to use a clarifer lens in a your peep.
    I use a 4X with a pink peep lens.
    2x is the most common

    In order to see which clairifier or verifier ( differnt lens, differnt purpose ) you need you would have to actually see them and a sight at a pro shop, pretty much a crap shoot selecting what you'd need on-line, once you know which one you need, they can be found cheaper on-line, even used.

    Good suggestion. There are several lenses of each type and you really need to try them. For starters you might want to go to a Specialty peep, which is threaded to accept the various lens configuration. Before buying the lens you can try different size apertures. If you have trouble with a blurry target sometimes just going to a smaller aperture can clear things up.

    well took my chances and ordered what I figured I would need. I travel for a living and am currently in VA but live in MO. The two bow shops close to me are both more oriented toward bowhunting rather than target shooting. They don't carry these types of products in their shops. I went ahead and ordered a 3x lense for my sights and a #1clarifier/peep setup with 3 differnt size aperuteres. This should cover me for what I want end result. lol well see how lucky I get and I'll let you guys know how it all works out

    I'm getting ready to make the jump to open. I will probably be using a 4x for outdoor 3-d and a 6x for indoor spots.

    yes you can if you go onto asa's website and go to tournament rules, about 3/4's of the way down are the rules for hunter class and they say magnifacation is allowed. I didn't know either but once I read that I decided to give it a whirl.

    C. AMATEUR – The following classes may shoot in one event per year without a full membership.
