Hi Crissman 6903,If you plan to run a lens in your peep I'd get the hooded peep. It's all preference though. That's just me. It helps keep the reflection from the sun off your lens
You can put a clarifier and verifier into peep sight. I did use a hooded peep. Switched to non hood because im always wearing a baseball hatHi Crissman 6903,
I didn't know that you can put a lens in your peep as well. I thought that, you only use or put the lens to the scope.. Sorry new to target archery.

Yes they are different. The aperture kit has no lens in them just changes peep size. I wear glasses/contacts. Im far sighted. With my scope lens my target blurs out good bit. Verififer cleans up targets. If you pin blurs out get a clarifier. Both options can be bought with different size opening. Check out specialty archery s website. Has a lot of great info thereHi,
WOW I need to know a lot of things LOL. I look up through on line the verifier, and it says that it helps to clarify my vision. Then that sees very helpful for someone like me. I wer contacts or glasses. and I dont have a good eye sight. With that description, it seems that its very helpful.
So that verifier is different from the aperture kit? The one that change the size of the peep?.. So the question is, can u use both? the aperture and the verifier or just one?
1. To th OP, Get the 5 piece aperature kit and the 3/16 in speciality pro hooded peep. These two things are your foundation to getting started and are not a option so just get them.
2. If you have a 4x lens then I would get a 1/8 number 1 clarifier also
3. If you are shooting without a lens then you can consider getting a verifier but they are only for shooters not using a lense on the sight.
Once you have your aperature kit and verifier or clarifier it only takes about 10 minutes to change and try each one of the options and you will know which one gives you a very clear target view and clear pin view and it is the one you wan't. If you don't have these to try you are simply guessing and will probably not get lucky.
I have both a hooded Peep site with interchangeable apertures and I also have the old standby Fletcher Tru-Peep that I have used for nearly 40 years (since they first came out).
Personally, I much prefer the Fletcher Tru-Peep, but it does not provide the option of interchangeable apertures. Years ago, the Fletcher Tru-Peeps also offered peeps with lenses in them with varying size apertures and called them "Power Peeps". I have some of those, but personally just don't like peep sites with lenses in them indoors or outdoors.
I see virtually zero difference between the hooded peep site and my Fletcher Tru-Peeps when at full draw, indoors or outdoors. Again, however, I don't ever use a lens in my peep sites; just don't like them.
That being said, however, I certainly won't take anything away from people that want clarifiers or verifiers if that keeps them happy. Personally, I like a bit of a "muddy" or slightly fuzzing image of the bullseye as opposed to a super clear image; that is just me and the way I like it. Many others want crystal clear images and will go to great lengths to get that; more "power" to them (Pun intended!).
Just offering another point of view (again, pun intended, haha); it isn't ALL about the peep site or "clarity"; there is more to it than just that.
