There are lots of great sights on the market today. Depends on how many pins you are wanting on your bow and the amount of money you are willing to spend. I have always been a fan of Cobra sights, but due to not being able to get one with the amount of pins I wanted I went with the Tru Glow 8 pin ($130).
Like Elkkill said there are a lot od great sights out there, I went with a Tru glow extreme sight with 5 pins. they are extremely bright and i didnt have a need for more than 5 pins, I'm sighted out to 60 yrds. good luck let us know what you decide to go with, BTW mine was $79.99
I have a Team Extreme on my Hoyt and it has worked really well, rock soild once it was sight in. But I am thinking about switching to a Trophy Ridge inline sight. I used to have one on my last bow and I think I was more consistent with an inline sight.
I remember someone telling about one that has either 3 or 4 normal pins and then a last one that kind of works like the new one pin sights... you adjust it to whatever range the target is at. Do any of you know the name of that sight? Any of you have any experience with it?
It seems like a really cool idea. No adjustment needed for close shots and then you can dial the range for the longer ones. Seems like it gives a little more customization for range. I do not think that I would like a one pin sight though. What are your guys' thoughts?
I am on my 3rd sight and I think I have found the one I'll stick with! I started with a Cobra years ago and that was fine until a couple of the pins were broken when my bow fell out of the tree (oops). When I bought my second bow, I put a Team Exteme on it. I liked it at first but then some of the fibers came out of the pins and I got tired of fixing them. Then one day I was pointed towards Spot-hogg becasue they give a smokin' military discount. I bought the Hunter series in "Seven Deadly Pins" and couldn't happier. I had them mount the first three pins with .019 fibers and the bottom 4 with .010. The whole set-up cost me about $125 with the discount.
I have the spot hogg hunter and absolutely love it. It is the best sight that I've owned and I think it is the best sight out there. It is expensive and there are other good sights, but it is worth the money. it is extremely solid and durable and it has micro adjustments that you can use to dial in your bow. I am sure it will be my last sight since it will last as long as the bow and my bow is the last one I'm buying.
What does "gauge" mean anyway? As used here gauge means the number of round lead balls the same diameter as the inside of the barrel (aka the bore) that it would take to weigh one pound. It takes 12 lead balls the same diameter as a 12 gauge barrel to weigh a pound. The smaller 20 gauge would require 20 balls of that barrel diameter. The larger bore 12 gauge would require 12 lead balls of the bore diameter to weigh one pound.
In general the number of pellets in a shotgun shell...
