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.

This class is open to anyone who did not compete in Open A (or higher), win more than $200 in prize money in Unlimited or Open B, or win more than $400.00 in Hunter during their most recent year of ASA Pro/Am competition. All other amateur classes are eligible. Release, fixed pins with magnification allowed. Stabilizer Rule - A front stabilizer (or system including quick releases and/or enhancers) may be used, but may not exceed twelve inches (12”) in total length from the tip of the stabilizer (or system) to the point of attachment on the front of the riser provided by the manufacturer. A rear stabilizer or counter balance weight system may be used with a maximum of two extensions, but may not extend more than six inches (6”) in length as measured from either: (1) the point of attachment on the rear of the riser provided by the manufacturer, or (2) if there is no rear point of attachment the system may not extend more than six inches (6”) beyond the back of the grip
