Some Peep Sight Advice
Posted on November 29, 2010
I’ve been asked about the pros and cons of using a peep sight, so I wanted to take some time and address this issue. There are a lot of advantages to not having a rear peep, but the main reason most archers go without one is because it allows more light in to you sight area, which allows you to shoot later in the evenings. But the cons to that set up is without a rear sight to look through, it makes it harder to maintain your anchor, therefore your groups suffer and begin to open up. In my opinion I would rather have the peep sight to keep me accurate 95% of the time and consistent. And then in low-light conditions I will practice shooting outside my peep and compensating. Most low-light shots are going to be pretty close shots, and shooting at long distances when you don’t have enough light is just not ethical.
I prefer the G5 meta peep, but there are several good peeps on the market today. I hope that has shined a little light on things for you. No pun intended!
