    peep angle help

    I want to install a specialty peep on my bow and I don't know if I need to go with the 37 degree angle or the 45 degree angle.

    I have a Hoyt Ultra elite with 2000 limbs and a 31 inch draw length. The ATA on the bow is about 37 1/2" if that helps.

    I am hoping that someone has a setup that is close and can tell me witch one to get.

    Thanks.

    I shoot the same bow at 29.5" using 37 degree peep. Peep works great.

    Go to specialty archerys website there is a graph that will tell you which peep for which ATA bow length.
    Repeat your process,Concentrate then follow through!

    Hi!
    37 degrees is for Bows under 40"ATA
    45 degrees is for Bows over 40" ATA

    Hope this helps!

    bow ata is not the true length for what peep to use, the size of the wheel makes a difference also. a 40 inch bow should be 45 degress.but if its only a 25-27 inch draw on a 40 inch ata use 37 degrees.the chart may help some to. look at an elite 35 has big wheels 30 inch draw, then i would go with a 45 degree. i hunt with hoyt 737 it has a 37 inch ata but wheels are big my draw length is 29 inch with the #4 cam and half so i use a 45 degree peep.there are always exceptions. now back to the top question my advise would be 45 degree peep,but i would bet you could use both angles.good luck

    I did get the 45 for my new (to me) Conquest pro which has 40-5/8" ATA and the peep is lining up just right.

    WOW, don't want your own personal thread that's been discussed a dozen times...you're not AT worthy--lol.

    I would suggest going to a shop that will allow you to test them out as you seem to be at the edge of both---likely a 37* will work well for you.

    in all seriousness, than you for not opening a new thread. It's nice to know that there are still people that know what a search engine is for.

    If you don't have a shop to test them, go with a 37* if you're going to order the peep....

    Yea i try to find what i need via search or google before opening a new thread sometimes you have to but other times you can find or revive a thread.

    I think my shop has them in non hooded ill try them and then probably have them order a hooded one in whatever works.

    For the 45 degree peep, you would want you ATA at full draw plus cam height divided by 2 to equal your true draw length minus brace height. Then your string will be at a perfect 45 degree angle.

    Or just look at the chart on the specialty archery website- if your on the line between the two, toss a coin. Works for me.
