Bcy nock point/peep tying thread works and doesn't cost a lot. Could use #4 nylon serving thread, it may cost even less and wouldn't be surprised if it's the same stuff.

If you go with a peep-it from Sawtooth Outdoor Products, you don't have to worry about tying it in. Not sure what peep you are using, but my Peep-it weighs 2 ounces less than the Rad SD 38 peep that I was using before. Just something to think about.

What material do you recommend for tying in a peep sight?
Anything not too thin that would cut your string and nothing larger than .020" or .021" BCY serving. You don't have to get fancy with serving. I use two servings, one above and one below. Adjusting the separate servings can allow tweaking the peep. I don't like the servings of any kind closer than 1 1/2" of peep. Me, often wondered if some of the string cutting wasn't due to having the serving (s) too close to the peep.

I prefer 3D. I've used Halo before but that stuff is kinda pricey for those tasks. 3D isn't cheap, it's not expensive either.

I've always used two or three wraps of dental floss in the groove around the peep body. Never any problems.

I keep some used strings from my wheel bow and recurve on hand for this very purpose. Peeps, tied nock sets, cat whisker silencers; all stay in place when tied tight with a strand of b50. Ask your shop or any traditional shooting friends if you can have an old string. A 14-16 strand string will give you enough pieces to last most of a lifetime.

BCY Powergrip. It won't move! Also great for center serving and particularly single cam cable where serving separation usually occurs.
