Default problems with peeps

i just got a new hoyt powertec and i switched the peep from my old bow to my new one and now it doesnt work. i have tried 3 or 4 different peeps and they all dont allow me to see throughthem because the peep is at too much of an angle. does anyone have any suggestions????

Is there any thing to stop you from using a drill bit by hand(ie:no electric drill). I would try a drill bit that fits the peep hole and then pull it back and forth in the desired angle. Being a mechanic by trade (as well as a forestry tech) it seems logical that that would work. You would need some one to eye ball the angle needed.

Sounds to me like your draw length is to long.
I understand its a short axle bow but I cant for the life of me think why you cant see through the peep .

Have you tried lowering your anchor? This will raise your peep site farther up the string

Try a No-Peep----problem solved

Another answer is peeps made by Specialty Archery. They make a couple with 37 degree angle for the long draw-short bow people. Hope this helps.
