    Default Spot Hogg Hogg-It or Sword Apex 3rd Plane for 3D?

    I'm considering these 2 sights for 3D only. I'm not ready for a single pin sight yet. Which of these 2 only would you recommend?

    For the money I'd go with the Sword..I dont think youll find a better value for the quality/precision/construction you get with them. Spott hOggs are superb sights too, but too spendy IMO..I like the fact that there are 2 sight ring sizes (1.75/2.25) you can choose with the sword, plus the sight ring is deeper and you can install a scope lens if you want with the 3rd plane unlike the Spot.

    the only thing the Sword doesnt have is micro adjust......

    for the difference in price I would choose the Sword ALL DAY LONG!

    Spot Hogg-it has 2 different sized housings available and yes you CAN have a lens with them also. they have an optional sun shade, light, and now can get a wrapped pin guard as well.. adjusting the pins, the whole head, left-right-up-down.... super simple.. and it never moves on you. I use the .010 pins for 3D and the .019 for hunting, mine are not wrapped, they are plenty bright enough as they are.
    I've used these for several years and wouldnt trade one of mine for 2 of the Swords.

    I'm neither a staff shooter nor am i independently wealthy but I put Spot-Hogg far and beyond Sword. The adustment features and overall design is well worth the price difference to me.

    I'll cut corners in some areas, but not on my sight. To me it's like buying tools. At Harbor Freight you can get a whole set of combination wrenches for $29 that will do the job. I can't afford Snap-on, but I sure think the Craftsman $95 set is well worth the extra money. The way I see it is with the Hogg you get Snap-On quality for Craftsman price.

    The Hoggs are just much more refined in my eyes. I bought a Sword a few years back and it let me down at a very important shoot. Sure they have great customer service and fixed it, but in my mind the best service to me is building a product that doesn't require me to send the product back for repair all the time.
