The Verifier Lens by Specialty Archery in my Super Ball Peep has definitely improved my shooting in the last couple of years. It was like putting reading glasses on my bow. What were big fuzzy blobs are now crisp and in focus sight pins. For all of you older bowhunters out there with eyes that just aren’t what they used to be with regard to close up vision, you need to try the Verifier Lens out. I guarantee it will help your accuracy.
The Verifier comes in 5 powers just like those reading glasses in your local pharmacy. I use the #8 lens in my peep. Hopefully your shop will have all of them so you can try all of the powers to see which one helps you the most. There is no magnification with the lens it just clears up your sight pins.
The Verifier Lens screws into the Super Ball Peep and come in either 1/8” or ¼” aperture size. When installing the lens, it’s best to put a little bow string wax on the threads before screwing it in the peep. This keeps it from backing out due to the vibration of the bow. The ¼’ is better for hunting, allowing more light to pass through for those low light shots when the big guys like to show up. For those of you who like to center their sight housing in the peep instead of a single pin, you will need a sight with a small outside diameter. The ¼” verifier works well with sights of 1 ¾” diameter and smaller.
The Super Ball Peeps come in many styles and colors, with or without tubing attachments. I’m getting the red one for my Black Ops Destroyer 340. They also come in 2 different angles, 37* for bows 40” and shorter and 45* for bows longer than 40”.
You young guys might not have a use for this product just yet, but when the time comes, just remember it can save you a lot of headaches trying to hold that big blob of a pin on target. All of us more experienced bow hunters need every advantage we can get to stay on target. And the Verifier Lens is a tool not too many people even know about. Everyone I let look through my peep is amazed at the difference it makes.
