Default Peep Tubing

Do you hunt with or without surgical tubing?

I decided after hunting with it for two years to take it off and try it without this year.

When I took it to the shop to have my new peep tied in, the guy working the back counter actually told me I was dumb for taking it off.

I didn't take it to heart though as he later told me a tale of how the elk he shot last season was standing 80 yards away downhill. Not that I didn't believe him, I just found it unethical.

May I also ask for the reasons as to why or why not?

If you've been hit in the face just one time by one of those when it breaks......you'll never use one again.

Hah, well I never had one actually hit me in the face, but I did have them crack and snap a couple times.

I have hit myself in the face when a string loop failed though!

yes. i use one and i alway have. the only thing i've been worried about before with it is the tubing breaking so i make sure to replace it every year or at the first signs of wear.

The reason i say no, it's another thing to go wrong. Buy a balanced string. Peep tubing makes your FPS slower(not much, but a little so it aint a biggy), It can break at any time, it gets caught on everything while walking through the woods, it's something else you have to buy, and the tube peeps i've seen are a lot larger than regular in-line peeps, which also makes you slower. Buy a fletcher tru-peep and be set.

I hate the tube. It's loud, dangerous, unnecessary, and one more thing to break. If you insist on a peep, go tubeless.

Thebest move I've made was when I got rid of my peep and went to a small kisser button. It forced me to learn how to shoot properly - by relying on a consistent anchor point and form.
