I was just successful in making my sight pins brighter!
It was more difficult in practice than It was in theory, but I finally got it done and YES it makes a difference.
The light traveling past the fiber optic strands gets completely absorbed by the black background. If that wasn't happening the sight housing beneath the strands would not appear black to the eye.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BlackBlack is the color of objects that do not emit or reflect light in any part of the visible spectrum; they absorb all such frequencies of light.
Therefore if something was placed between the black surface and the fiber optic strands which would reflect the light normally absorbed by the black surface the now reflected light would penetrate the strands and send more light to the pins instead of it being wasted and absorbed.
A while ago I bought some waterproof aluminum weather resistant tape which I used around my windows to seal out moisture and drafts. This tape can even be applied under water. (It can be done but us extremely difficult. LOL!) Anyways I had about 4 inches left over and that little piece was just hanging out on my coffee table just waiting for some use other than hanging out and lookin' pretty.
When I bought the bow and saw the sight for the first time I was like WOW! That's pretty awesome, but these really aren't all that bright indoors. So, when I was messing with it after dropping it and trying to figure out how to repair it using one of those light fountains with fiber optic strands that bounce and sway as they turn colors and really don't do much of anything I happened to notice the piece of aluminum tape just hanging out serving no real purpose and had an idea
I decided that by itself the tape was really not all that reflective, but once I polished it with a little elbow grease and some toothpaste it did seem to have a rather nice polish. It was time consuming and difficult, but I eventually was able to slide a piece beneath the optic strands and it made a slight difference so I kept going. Now that it is finished I would say that it is about 25% to 30% brighter. What a difference!!!
Here is some proof since you guys probably think it didn't happen without pictures. Notice the nice glare from the reflected light...
EDIT::Oh, and I'm sending the sight to Trophy ridge so they will repair it and add two pins. I wonder what they will think about my modification!?! LOL!
