Just curious to know what size others are using. I guess it really depends on the set up. I'm not even sure what I have at the moment. I think it is a little bigger that 1/8. Pretty small anyway. So let me know what your peep size is and how big your sight window is. I am much more accurate with a smaller peep, but with the bigger peep I can see/hunt a lot later.

3/16 is the smallest I can go.

I use a 3/16" , but it depends on the size of the round sight guard . I want the peep to just surround the outside of the sight guard at full draw to align the peep properly .

I got rid of my peep sight because I switched to the No Peep. It's not an actual sight. I have been shooting really well and my bow is much quieter.

1/4 is what I like and it sure makes a difference for low light and long distance.

I'd love to shoot the 1/4 but like radar said it leaves too much space around my sight housing. Guess I just need to scoot my sight as close in as possible then find a happy medium.

3/16" is a good compromise .

Well actually just went thru this with a coupkle great Pros the other day. You want your peep to leave just an eclipse of a ring around your pin housing. This alone will make you a better shot.
