    Is there a such thing. The current one I have needs to be moved and is too big. What do you guys think?

    I think g5 is the way to go since they make top quality stuff. I have a 3/16" meta peep since you can get it in green but I like the titanium peep also.

    Never heard of a peep sight being too big. I use a 1/4" peep that completely centers the sight ring when I aim. I would get a metal peep no matter what you get. Plastic breaks.

    Fletcher Tru-Peep works as good as anything...I normally use a Fletcher, RAD, or G5...No real difference in any of those.

    I have never had a plastic peep break in 30 years of shooting bows. I use Pine Ridge peeps a lot and they are plastic. I am currently using a RAD peep which is aluminum but I won't hesitate to use Pine Ride peeps.

    Never used the Pine Ridge peeps. I went through a couple of PSE Mongoose peeps last month, all of them broke where the tubing connects to the post. These were self aligned peeps however, I wouldn't think a tubeless peep could break since there's nothing interfering with it.

    I like the fletcher and the rad. Heard too much about the meta peeps cutting strings.

    Thanks guys. I've always shot plastic peeps and prefer tubeless. I was thinking a metal/ aluminum peep was what I was going to get.

    I remember reading that now. Yes I only use tubeless peep sights so that probably explains it. I have honestly only ever had one bow with a tubed peep and the tubing broke at the cable and hit me in the eye and that was the last tubed peep I ever used LOL.

    I switched from the meta to the Hot Shot Accu-Peep. Definitely a step up, IMO.

    Although I'm not too picky about peep sight brand in general, I can't stand tubed peeps. G5 and Clearshot Archery both make the best tubeless peep sights in my opinion.

    I personally shoot the RAD Super Duece 3/16". I have never had one cut a string on my bows, unlike some of the other company's. The biggest peep advice is always a metal one though, plastics degrade and can become oval shaped. Good luck on your search!

    RAD Super Deuce is my favorite.

    I can't see well through a Fletcher. No idea why, just can't
    I had a G5 crush once.

    I've had several Rad superdeuce which are fine and theyre cheap, but right now I have a 1/4" G5 titanium and its the best ive had sight picture wise. They have a rep for cutting strings, but I think that's from misuse tying them in too tight with the knots too close to the peep creating a steep angle.
