    Default Where to Find FIBER?

    I recently got a Viper Scope and have been trying to find some new fiber for it. I can't seem to find anyone that carries 24in or longer fiber. Blue seems to be especialy hard to find. Any help in pointing me towards someone that carries .010-.019 fiber would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Default Quality fiber

    I recently bought some quality fiber at Kinseys Outdoors (717)653-5524. It was much brighter that what came on the sight from factory. I also made my 20 yard pin with a longer fiber optic so that it is brighter. It's reasonably priced and can greatly improve the brightness.

    Over the Summer I put longer fiber on my Trophy Ridge sight. I got it from fitzfiber.com. They sell several sizes of 2 different types of fiber. One type glows brightest at short lengths and the other type glows brightest at longer lengths. They sell a $20 pack of 5 3-foot fibers in either type. They have, at least, .039, .029, .019 and I think they also have .010. They also sell the protective tubing by the foot, so you can run your own extended fiber. Check out their web site. I ordered my .019 fibers off their site and got it in about 5 days. They also have pic galleries of site mods people have made to increase pin brightness without using a site light. I followed one of those examples to modify mine. I was unhappy with the pin brightness and was going to buy a new site, but now it's awsome and I absolutely love it. A few people have asked me to modify theirs as well, even though it's easy to do if you have the fiber, tubing, etc....

    Good luck.

    I replaced my fiber on my Viper scope with fibers from Fritzfiber. They have a good selection of colors and type of fiber.

    Default Fiber replacement

    I found some on ebay at a good price. $20 for three 5ft pieces in 3 different colors. You could get .019 or .029 diameters. Don't know if it's still on there or not
