I am currently looking for a sight for my new 2008 Bowtech Guardian. I am very interested in the HHA Optimizer sights, going as far as placing a want-ad on here. However, I am now looking at the Viper Quickset sight as well, and that is putting me into kind of a bind. I now can't decide which I would like better. Please let me know what you all think of both these sights. Also, if you have one of these sights, let me know how they shoot, how they are to set up/sight in, etc. The final bow setup will be used for hunting and some 3D tournaments as well. Thanks for all your help.
I have the HHA DS5519 on a General and love it. Shoot at 20, then 60, pick the appropriate yardage tape and your all set. The DS model works great in all kinds of lighting conditions because you can vary the brightness of the pin.
I have the HHA Elite 5019 w/ rheostat brightness adjustment and click adjustable windage. I have no complaints. It always worked as it should. I never ever had to worry about it having problems. I use this sight for hunting and previously for 3D. I f you bought one you would not be disappointed. As far as the viper sight, I have not used one. I do use a Viper 1.750" scope housing with .010" pin. It is very well built and serves me well on my target sight. Viper makes a good product. I think you need to look at them both very closely and compare the features etc. and see which one seems better to you.

I Have a HHA Optimizer sight for sale that is barely used as I moved to a scope. It is a slider type with I believe a .019 single green pin. I believe its an OL 5000. $85 tyd obo, pm me if you are interested.
I use the HHA 5500OL and love it for 3D, I do think for hunting (Even tho I use my hha for hunting) I would get a 3 pin sight just to take the worry as you are pulling back of "did I set the slide to 35 yrds" BUt I will say I have no complaint on the hha it works the way it is supposed, to and is easy to set up

Had an HHA 5519
have a Viper (H1000 I think.)
HHA is the brighter of the two, no question. Single vertical pin is the bomb for targets.
Here's the thing, for me anyway, for hunting you have to choose wheather or not you can deal with shooting one pin set for one yardage and hold high or low if longer or closer. Moving the slide adjust at the moment of truth did'nt work out for me.
Went to the Viper for fixed multi-pin.
Hard to pick one sight
