    there is a bunch of good sights out there. I'm not married to any. I've never used Trophy Ridge but they look pretty good and I haven't heard anything bad about them.

    When I look at them, I see others I'd rather have. Namely Spot Hogg but I can't afford that. I seen a really nice VBG 3 pin triangle site the other day for $50. I am thinking about it pretty hard, those suckers are bright, no light needed. The MBG Flash Point is pretty bright, simple, and awesome too, but its over $100.

    Myself, there are 3 sights that I will put on a bow and nothing else. They are, in my personal order of preference..............

    #1 Sword

    #2 Sword

    #3 Sword

    Built like a tank at 50% the price of a Hogg

    Just my $.02 worth :peace:

    I like my MBG Flashpoint. Very Bright but no pin glare when in bright sun shooting into darkness.:p

    I am looking into a new site as well. I have a truglo one now that is pretty good it has a light etc. and it gathers light real well. My problem is that I have diabetes and my eyesight tends to change sometimes according to my sugar level. I am looking into ones with lenses on the sight or in a peep or perhaps both. All of my sighted friends just love the TruGlo I have though.

    The past 3 years I have exclusively used Viper sights. Built like a tank, and super bright. To try something different, I ordered a Spot Hogg hoggit, for my LD. Based on pin brightness, I wish I had gotten the Viper Micro-Tune. I got the Hoggit without the wrap. I didn't want to spend $50 more for the wrap. I'm impressed with the S.H. sight, except for pin brightness. I'll be doing a fiber mod on it very soon.

    gonn have to check that out Virg, next time we shoot 3D together. The Swords look like really nice sights. I have never seen one in person.

    Wow, several sword shooters. I guess I will look into them as well.

    I have owned Viper, Trophy Ridge, Copper John and a few other alsorans.
    But my favorite is the Apex Gear Inferno :thumb:

    Yeah, I was looking at the Apex in my catalog, those things are built like a tank. I'd buy that Nitrous 4 pin if I had $95. I just bought a sweet :censored: MTB, new 3 pin for $10.50. Oh yeah. Its true. Take that, BAM!

    Again, there are a ton of nice sights to choose from, I wished they wasn't so damn expensive. Like $75 max would be nice. :noidea:
