Default G5 peeps?

Are the G5 peeps worth the extra money? Right now Im shooting with a rubber tube and Want to get as much speed out of the bow as I can, so im thinking of getting a tubeless peep and say the G5 but its 10bucks and I can get others for 3-6bucks?

I use the 3/16'' Meta Peep

You MIGHT pick up 5 fps by getting rid of the tubing and using a lightweight peep.

from what i've heard the tubing can cost you up to10 fps on most bows and by switching over to the G5 meta peep you can pick up -+ 5fps since its made from ultralight magnesium (lighter then machined aluminum) the bow hardly even knows its there.

so IMHO spend the 10 bucks, you can spend more then thatat the gas station on beef jerky and a soda

they are worth it, that rubber tubing is a speed killer.

I have the G5 Meta Peep and I have to say I like it, for hunting I wouldn’t get any smaller the 3/16th because in low light they get tough to see through but probably already know that. I thought it was worth the extra money… Speed = Money & Money = Speed, just like in motor sports…
