I can't seem to pull more than 68 lbs in hunting conditions and want to speed up my arrow speed. Can peep sites help?

Depending on what sort of peep you are using you can definitely gain a few fps. If you are using a style that attaches with rubber tubing switching to a brand without tubing will give you an extra 5-8 fps on average. What all do you have on your string? Dropping some other string accessories will also add speed.


For the record, don't be too concerned with speed. I was shooting 295 fps last year and actually slowed my bow down to 278 fps this year. Everyone blows the importance for speed out of proportion. On a 3D course or on the line it can help because a miss by 1 to 2" could mean the difference between 1st place and no trophy at all. In the woods, a 1 to 2" mess up is still a dead animal.
