New Bow... What Sight?

Now that I have a new bow, what sight should I put on it? I'm not made of money but since the bow was free I am planning on putting something nice on it. What are your guys' thoughts?

Lots of choices

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).

I have a Team Extreme on my

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

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?

Spot-Hogg SDP

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

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.
