Picked up a new Prime Black 5 the other day. I need to get it setup with “the good stuff” for hunting. I will keep my old Prime Centroid as backup bow. I don’t change bows very often, 5 bows in 39 yrs of bow hunting and would like to buy durable/reliable rests/sights etc. My eyes are getting old and tired so the right peep is needed to keep shooting. Let’s hear lots of recommendations, I will spend the money needed, buy once, cry once subscriber here.

I have the 3. Here’s mine

Prime Sherpa 1 piece
Hamskea trinity
Spot hogg hogg father
B stinger 10” microhex

In my opinion that’s the best of the best.

I had a tightspot. The Sherpa is better in my opinion.

My PSE Drive XL:

Vapor Trail 7 limb driven rest based off dealers recommendation.
Black Gold MTN Lite Site (5 pins so I could also do 3-d with it as well)
Tight Spot 7 arrow quiver
Not sure about the peep since it was the dealers standard peep.

My current setup has Trophy Taker, tightspot, single pin Blackgold slider and shrewd stabilizer, not sure on peep. Things are always improving it seems. Hamskea wasn’t on radar when I set this up.

Hamskea Hybrid Hunter Pro w/microtune for a rest, Hamskea Raptor peep in your size choosing and a Black Gold Pro sight. Add in a Tight Spot quiver and you're good to go.

All that but a quivalizer instead of the tight spot for me.

For the sight get a MBG Mountain Lite w/ the dual indicators.

I have a black 5 also. I went with the Sherpa two piece ( never again will I own a tite spot), went with spot hogg hogg it sight ( liked my hha king pin a little better, in some regards) QAD rest MXD ( liked my HDX slightly better) and still haven’t found a peep I really really like. Found I shoot it without a stabilizer just as well as I did with one ( tried a bunch of them) . Nice bows, you will like it. If you have a slight vibration after the shot ( which I had, very very minor though) I cut off the weights on the cable guard and it’s totally gone.

What size peeps and what pin configuration on sights for old eyes?

Peep usually is secondary to match the outter ring of your sight housing. .019 is easier on the eyes and low light. .010 is more accurate at long range because it doesn’t cover as much of the bullseye. .029 if you’re really struggling. Green and yellow are easier to see, red is usually a little tougher and often creates a halo effect. I prefer a 2 pin slider to cut down on confusion in the heat of the moment. My top pin is set at 30 which puts my bottom at 43. After about 45 I would need to adjust my slider.

I use .019, single pin, zbros light ( I can choose pin color, and brightness, only use light while hunting pigs at night) and was using a 1/4” peep but in the dark with red feeder light it’s still a bit unclear. So I went to 5/16” and it helped but then iam not as accurate at longer day time shots. So I am trying a peepless idea I came up with. I like the .019 both day and night, works great. Love the single pin, not real sure what to do with peep. And yes I have older eyes myself, plus glasses, if that matters.
