    You can tell the season is upon us because I start looking at all the new stuff I can put on my bow.:peace: Anyways what do you guys think about these peep sights. Seems like a good idea. If you can have a large field of vision and have the accuracy you get the best of both worlds. If you haven't seen them here is the website. http://www.redhawk-archery.com

    Happy Hunting :thumb:

    I use one of these peeps and I love the view you get but I'm sure I lost some FPS because it is big and seems heavier than my old 1/8" peep. It is well made though and gives you a really nice view. I just had it installed a couple of weeks ago. I'm going to go with it for this hunting season. I have the one with the aligner but I had to buy the silicone tubing separate. For $20 you would think they would include 6" of tubing... NOT !

    Apparently the newest version is much smaller then before. Is that amber surrounding really that easy to see through? It seems like it would make it darker. I ask because they also make a new one that is clear.

    Actually, the amber lens brightens the scene... Kind of hard to explain but it's like looking through a pair of shooting glasses. I shoot with both eyes open and looking through that peep makes things look more natural, like I was not looking through a peep at all. Does that make sense ? You really need to look through one to understand since I'm probably doing a crummy job of explaining it.

    :biggrin1:

    I'll bet the clear one would be good too, just different. I can say though that the lenses are not removable/interchangeable. The body of the peep is molded around the lens. So if you wanted to experiment you would have to serve in each peep separately to try them out.

    I have use one for hunting . From my experience I would suggest that if you use one that you use a arrow of 6 grains per # of draw to help the peep from changing up the nock point travel.
