Re: New sight recommendations?
I'm not much on recommending specific sites, since the new price range is from $39.95 to $350.00! I recommend things to look for: 1) solid housing construction, either aluminum or carbon, not plastic. 2) micro adjust windage and gang elevation that you don't need an allen wrench. 3)pin size that matches your hunting style and distances, and even multiple pin sizes within the same sight 4) pin color- anything but red- red flares and will seem off set to those who wear glasses. 5) encased or enclosed pin fiber- where the fiber runs through the pin not behind it, exposing it to being broken by weeds when you walk to or from your stand. After that, I advise to spend a little more on the sight, it is the foundation of your aiming point and it can be moved from one bow to another.
The problem with most of today's archery products, they cost too much to just buy one and try it, and resell it if you don't like it. I figure if I'm going to spend upwards of $75+ on a sight, I am sure going to use it whether I like it or not for 1 season. It would be great if you could test drive one for say, 100 shots, then make a decision.
Wishing I was at camp!
