Choosing a Peep sight and / or Clarifiers / Verifiers can be a nightmare! 

Unfortunately as everyone's bow set up and eye sight is different, there is no quick answer as to what will work for you. However Speciality Archery who make and sell everything you need to get the perfect sight picture, have some basics which will help you in deciding. 

** The information below is only a guideline and may not work for everyone. Neither we or Speciality Archery cannot be held responsible if the information shown does not work for you.

Do you need a 37 or 45 Degree peep?

 The first step is to determine the bow’s brace height. This is the distance from the string to the thumb web section of the bow’s grip. Round this number up or down to the closest inch. (For example, a 6¼” brace height bow would use the 6” brace height chart. A 6¾” brace height bow would use the 7” brace height chart.) Next, find the bow’s axle-to-axle length on the left axis of the chart. The final step is to move horizontally within that row until you come to the column with the bow’s draw length. This will indicate the preferred peep string angle for your bow. NOTE: if your setup falls on the dividing line between the 37 and 45 degree sections of the charts, you can use either string angle. For example, a 7” brace height bow, 36” axle-to-axle, and a 27½” draw length falls right on the boundary, and could use either a 37 or 45 degree string angle peep housing

Verifier or Clarifier? 

These are small glass lenses installed into the Peep sight body. Theoretically they will allow you to see your sight picture more clearly. 

A Verifier is used when you shoot with pins to clear up the pins.

A Clarifier is used when you shoot with a scope and a lens to clear up the target. 

Verifiers are generally preferred by older archers who have lost some ability to focus on objects that are close-up, such as sight pins. Clarifiers are usually preferred by tournament archers who want to see the target more clearly when looking through a scope.

The first step in using a Verifier or Clarifier is to choose the correct hole size. If you are using a peep with a certain aperture hole size, we recommend using the same size for your Verifier / Clarifier.

Here are the basic guideline to help you select the Verifier you might need:  

#4 Verifier 1.00 or weaker reading glasses
#5 Verifier 1.25 reading glasses
#6 Verifier 1.25-1.75 reading glasses
#7 Verifier 1.75-2.00 reading glasses
#8 Verifier 2.00-2.50 reading glasses
#9 Verifier 2.50 or higher reading glasses

Here are the basic guideline to help you select the Clarifier you might need: 

2 power lens we suggest trying #0.5 or #1 Clarifier
3 power lens we suggest trying #0.5 or #1 Clarifier
4 power lens we suggest trying #0.5, #1, #1.5 or #2 Clarifier
5 power lens we suggest trying #0.5, #1, #1.5 or #2 Clarifier
6 power lens we suggest trying #1, #1.5 or #2 Clarifier
7 power lens we suggest trying #1.5, #2 or #3 Clarifier
8 power lens we suggest trying #2 or #3 Clarifier

** One thing to note is that it will be very unlikely for you to achieve either perfectly clear pins, or a perfectly clear target. You will have to make a compromise. 

Some Archer's prefer clearer pins and a blurry target. Others prefer blurry pins and clear target.
