Default Latest Archerytalk Scam to lighten your Wallet

Titanium Peep sights. Yes, sounds pretty cool. Only $20. The tried and true Fletcher aluminum peep is $4 or $5. Aluminum is 60% lighter then Titanium but Ti is 45% stronger and has better heat resistance. We are talking string peeps not fan blades in jet engines.
If your serving comes loose and you fling your peep off in the grass with a Fletcher your out $4 if you do the same with the Ti your out $20.
If aluminum is more than strong enough for the application and lighter, why would you install something 4-5times more expensive that is going to slow your bow down a couple FPS?
You would be better off up grading your sight, release or arrow rest with your Archery Hobby Dollars.

So its not a real scam just a stronger peep and cost more some like that dose not mean its a scam a scame is when you pay for something and dont get it or get something different. I pay 20.00 for my super ball peep whats the differance.

I have two super balls meself, but 4 bows and arent going to put S-balls in themall and Super Bs have the advantage off course of varying sizes of apetures, clarifiers and verifiers.
Ti is very hard to cut threads in and you cant make gun barrels out of Ti is so soft,it wont hold rifling.

The Titan 5/16 peep will withstand
600lbs of string pressure and not oval.

The 5/16 weighs 6gr

There is one other company offering
a Ti peep and Titan is about $5 less
expensive.

Titan peeps have all 3 string angles
cut into it.. for different ATA bows and
shorter Dl's

Oh and yes Aluminum is lighter,, but
our Ti peeps are machined much thinner
making them much lighter... our peeps
are extremely strong yet weigh between
3-6gr.

Its obvious you have no clue what your
talking about. better go do some more
reading on Ti and then come back and act
like you have a clue. Typical delinquent!

When has a $4 Aluminum Fletcher ever failed in a string at any bow weight? Who has a 600 lb bow? If they are mackhined that light, theyre probably not as strong as a Fletcher or Super ball. A super ball peep costs approx the same as the Ti and will take various apertures for different peep sizes.http://www.obsessionarchery.com/adva...?keywords=peep

idiot.

The OP feelings were hurt so he decided to attack a company I am associated with.. He felt that would make him feel better.

Its what delinquents do.

In addition to Rodney's posts, I seem to remember reading about some folks who like large diameter peeps having some issues with the peeps "ovaling" on them over time.

The additional strength of the Ti peep prevents this from happening.

Thanks for the posts Rodney, unlike the OP I enjoy seeing new archery products. I use my intellect, assess the product and make a decision on purchase. This looks like a great peep with a variety of angles available for ultra short to long ATA's.

And further to the ovalling, I won't name the mfg. but I had to replace several 1/4 and 5/16 of the competitors brand.

it's funny how you kindof turned the op's bashing thread into an add for the exact product he was badmouthing. I think you will actually gain more interest in these new ti peeps.

Ovaling is caused by not having the right string angle cut into the sides of the peep on ultra short bows. The peep itself is angled due to the extreme string angle at full draw.Anyone with any amount of intellect wouldnt have a bow under 37" ata.

I would buy one. It looks like a great product that is available in multiple colors.
OP I would also bet that most bows on the market is well under 37" ATA.

yes and people buying them(<37") IQ's are well below 3 digits.Thinkng Ovaling means the alum peep is bending helps support this . Thats why Super Balls are made at various angles.

I like the looks of the titanium peep. It is very clean looking. Is it new? No. But, a very fresh spin on the peeps in the market which was needed. Worth the almost $20? Only the individual can decide that.

I am curious. It is stated that there is 600 pounds on the string. But, how much pressure is actually on the sides of the peep?

As you can see by the photo, the older ones are a little dull.

Titanium peep sights are a great idea, I can't tell you how how many plastic peep sights I've crushed over the years in hunting accidents. Several dozen at least.

lmao every other one of his post shows that his handle should be Compound Clown....his post are so ridiculous that it has to be a joke because nobody can really be that clueless and think they really know what they are talking about.

I know probably 20 people at least that would walk his dog with a bow under 37"....myself included in that 20. My only 58 and 59 X rounds are with a 35-36" Katera. Have never shot a 540+ field round with anything but one of my Katera XLs either.

The peep is sweet....can't say I would buy one as I mostly shoot target and those holes are WAAAAYYYY too big for my liking and no clarifier. But the idea is a good one. As a person that shoots a super peep because of clarifiers.....Super Peeps are only as popular as they are because of the insert. The housing isnt that great....and after all these years they still haven't figured out how to build them so that every other one they produce doesn't jack up your string. They only reason they are still as popular is because they sue or threaten to sue everyone that tries to make a new version. The one Lancaster had to stop making was MUCH better.

Some of us could care less about FPS. It's called options for a reason.

[QUOTE=You would be better off up grading your sight, release or arrow rest with your Archery Hobby Dollars.[/QUOTE]

With the ability to have 3 angles in one peep comes to about $6.67 an angle.
Almost comparable to the Fletcher $5 1 angle peep.....

To simply say this is a scam is ludicrous.
