    Default Peep Sight: Tubing or no tubing?

    I have been bow hunting for 10 years and have always used a peep sight with tubing. While practicing this past winter, I noticed the cold was making the tubing stretch and lose it's elasticity. This was causing my peep to not align properly. I am just curious if anyone else has noticed this, and how many of you use a peep with or without tubing. Thanks

    I have shot without the tubing for years w/o any problems at all. If you use a D loop to conect your release, it will automaticly put the peep in the right position. Just tye in the d loop so it doesn't move and your problem is solved. You will also pick up a couple feet per second by taking off the extra weight off your string.

    You'll never to back to tubing once you get away from it, that's for sure.

    Your bow will probably be quieter also.

    One less thing to go wrong at the wrong moment .Get rid of the tubing and use the D loop!!

    Another vote for no tubing and D loop.

    Buy a high quality aftermarket string. It will eliminate the need for peep tubing as they will not rotate when drawn. There is a wealth of information on peep sight installation at www.archerytalk.com I haven't used a tube in 15 years.
