View Full Version : Sights Good & Bad

11-04-2011, 03:58 PM
Looking to get a new sight & would like to harness the vast knowledge available on this forum before I decide.

Simple theory:

Which are good?
Which are mediocre/ok?
Which to avoid at all cost?

Depends on what your are doing. Target , hunting , or both. Once we can determine that, then we can help you find a sight. Many nice sights out there for both.

Also what type of sight do you want? multi pins, single pin, pendulum, etc...

Have a look at The System made by Davis, I have three and have been using them for four years at 3D comps with no issues.

Thanks Don but not what I'm after. Yes I am into targets ect but firstly the price is too dear & 2nd I want to develop some natural aiming skills & get a feel of distance & elevation. Thanks all the same:)

I have a CBE sight and scope, it was used one year for indoor spots by some guy, and he sold it to me for 250$...It was practically brand new...what Don was offering, was a helluva good price!!! your not gonna find too much quality stuff for under 250-300$

With that being said, a great alternative, is the HHA Single pin slider sights...highest of quality, great fiber optics, best customer service, and super easy to use.

I love my HHA's, have two of them. Both are the OL5519 , been wanting to try the 5510 or just get the .10 scope piece. On the Bowtech there were no issues with the sight anywhere. My Oneida is a different story, the riser presents a problem trying to center a peep over any sight so I just dealt with it. I was looking for something on E-Bay and found a 4" extension for the HHA and bought one. Not only did it fix the issue with the riser but the added length makes it more accurate. I may get another one for the Bowtech.

I also really like the HHA OL 5519's, as you can see in my signature, I've got two, son has an xl5019 and the grandson shoots an OL 5019. Great sight and customer service is almost as good as Martins. :)

i really like that 4 in extension for the hha sight. i would love to get my hands on one and was wondering if you could point me in the right direction. are they a custom part or a generally avalible part also did it require a custom sight tape not a problem just wondering
