What bowsights do you like?

03-17-2011, 07:19 PM
For what purpose? For hunting I favor an HHA slider. For 3D, same sight with a 4X lens. For 3D and/or target I like something like a SureLoc Supreme with a 4X True Spot or Bullseye scope. In fact, I tried a Lethal Weapon II and I think this would make a very nice mid-priced 3D pin sight.

Your choice would obviously depend on what you want to use it for and how much moola you're willing to part with. The ones I've mentioned cost between $100 and $500, roughly.

HHA OL-5000 on my bow now (primarily hunting setup). However, I've been seriously thinking of changing / upgrading to a Black Gold Ascent 3 or 4 pin sight with FlashPoint HD head. The HHA is somewhat limiting as to long range shooting. I've read of several on AT saying they're able to shoot out to 100+ (like 120-130 yards) with the Ascent. And the pin brightness is said to be outstanding (as they are known for). The HHA sights are built well - tough as nails and no noise or problems - but they don't make any with long range shooting in mind.

I hunt and during the off season I shoot for fun. I use the Truglo Range Rover. It's an excellent sight, and I don't even need a light for it. I've shot up to 100 yards with it.:cool::cool:

I've got a limbsaver prism elite 5 pin with the 6th pin moveable. I love the sight. It is almost too bright in low light areas.

on my Cheetah I've got an Apex Atomic single pin sight set @ 30yds. The Athens Accomplice 34 has a Viper H100 4pin but only use 2pins set @ 25 and 35yds. I hunt(deer and SG),shoot 3D,Techno hunt.

I hold high or low. It takes the guessing/confusion of multi pins out of the equation and provides a clearer sight picture.

my hunting is generally from treestands or spot/stalk through dense woods or swapy areas that rarely allow shots over 20yds.

I do a lot of bow hunting so I use the savage pendulum with a tritium pin. I can shoot 0 to 45 yards
