Was wondering if anybody has used these - I know they are heavy and expensive but if they work in low light like they say I may be interested cause I have had some big deer get by me at low light. I was looking at the fly , it is an 1/8 inch opening and weighs 7.5 grains I believe. If I can get better accuracy with a smaller peep but still show daylight like a 3/16 or a 1/4 I'm going to. Just looking for opinions , Thanks guys.

I prefer a 3/16" Meta Peep myself . Perfect size for hunting , and not too large to hamper accuracy . Ideally , you want a peep to surround your sight guard at full draw , so you can center it .
I have never had an issue seeing deer through my peep sight during legal shooting light .

1/8th is awfully small for a hunting application in my opinion. I have used a 1/8th before for 3d and there have been a few times during the day that I was having light issues, due to shade/cloud-cover, etc.... I would recommend for hunting either the 3/16", like Radar stated, or a 1/4"—whichever one will have the ring of the sight housing in perfect alignment with the ring of your peep. I use the 1/4" meta peep and the ring of my raptor sight fits perfectly on the edge of peep window.

I used a string splitter for part of a season. I had problems getting it oriented correctly. I have also read reports of them collapsing. I ditched it.
It doesn't have to be fun to be fun.

Wild & crazy, can't be stopped. Only the strong will survive.

Keep your knife sharp and your skillet greasy.
