Bow Sight

there are soem nice sights out there for $70. look into the impact archery sights. they are very bright and tough. and as far as teh G5 Montechs, i shot 100 grain montechs. i love them. they shoot very good and big reason is because the air flows over teh broad head evenly because it is one piece not interchangable blades making notches in the broadhead. i say go with those shoot great

Bow Sight

I started using a Trophy Ridge sight last year. Really like it so far. Like the vertical pin setup and the brightness of the pins. I've always used Thunderheads and been real pleased with their performance. I would definitely stay with 3 pin sight just to avoid the confusion.

I have never seen the Montec until now, and they look really good. Might have to try them out Think

I just placed my order for 125 gr. Montechs. They should be here in time for the black bear to start showing up. I would like to make one more change in my set up before I go out for bear this spring. I would like to get a dozen Beman Black Max's to put behind my Montech's. Just not happy with my Gold Tips...

Little note on the Montecs. They are hell to keep sharp. I used them exclusively for one seaon and took 11 animals with them. My only complaint they wouldnt keep an edge even in the quiver. I also had a heck of a time getting them razor sharp to begin with. I tried the factory stone and all that mumbo jumbo and still had heads Id toss hand to hand. Then I discovered the trick on some forum I cant recall. Automotive wet sandpaper. Lay it flat get it a tad wet and rub the side in small circles for one minute. Turn and repat on all sides. Then cut the sanding time in half and repeat on all sides. Finaly do a light pressure sanding for about 15 seconds a side still making small circles. The clean the head off and finish it on leather. it will be shaving sharp....for awhile used or not.

Got to give them kudos for two things, they are tough as nails and they fly extremely well, other than that I can think of any number of better broadhead choices out there.

Slick tricks.... be real carefull super sharp super strong no doubt but they have a bad tendancy to deflect on rib hits in my experience. I lost two deader than dead animals over major rib dlfections shooting them. The leftovers went in the garbage.
