    It works good. It's real similar to a fletcher tru-peep which is what I usually buy, but the shop had this one so that's what I went with. I think you'd like either of them.

    A nice peep setup is a Specialty Archery Super peep. The housing is threaded and accepts different sized apertures, lenses, etc... They have a few different housing options like with or with out tubing, with or without a shade, etc...

    In my opinion the biggest benefit is that you can change the aperture diameter without replacing the peep. The apertures screw in and out with an included wrench. You can get the peep housing and a handful of apertures for a reasonable price in a storage box with a wrench.

    I went to those a year or so ago and I will not go back to the plain jane peeps again.

    I have the 45 on my Ovation, 82nd and Allegiance.

    The Allegiance is the shortest at about 34" ata/7" brace and the Ovation is the longest at 40" ata/7-3/4" brace, both are 29" draw, so you can gauge on that. The sight picture through each setup is virtually the same as far as the peep goes... The apertures, in my opinion, have a very wide margin for field of view with respect to the angle of the housing to the string...

    Hope that helps.

    I use the fletcher peep. Not flashy or anything. But it works and is priced right. I have been looking at the Meta peep but havent tried it.

    the peep twisting is not the peep...it's mainly the string and the installation of the peep

    Relentless is right.

    The peep turning has nothing to do with the peep. It's all about the string. You can change your peep to what ever you want, wether it's a meta peep, just a plain 'ol peep or even a Super ball peep, but it's always going to change unless you "train" your peep. Or get a better string on your bow (see JCMorgan31 for that). Training your peep consists of how you tie in your peep (the serving should be on both sides of the string split and around the peep), how you set your peep in the string (where on the twist) and how often your string stretches. It's a little confusing, but with a good quailty, pre stretched string, you won't have any problems with your peep turning once you've tuned it to your bow.
