    Question Truglo Pendulum sight

    Has anyone used the Truglo Pendulum sight? If you have, please tell me what you think of it. I think the sight would be cool for treestand hunting, but if it's junk I don't want it.

    a good pro shop will generally let you try before you by. Tru-glo pins are nice. Biggest thing is to shoot before you buy. Make sure it's not going to rattle from the moving parts.

    Truglo sights/pins are indeed nice. I currently use a Truglo Range-Rover, and it's an excellent sight.

    I know a fellow who has one.He likes it very much and according to him it doesn't rattle and is accurate.I have a tru-glo range rover sight and it is well made,I am sure the pendulum would be as well.
    I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather.. Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.

    Always found Tru-Glo sights to be excellent value, well constructed and no rattles. I currently have a Tru-Glo Rangerover on my 2011 Firecat 360 and it works well.

    I haven't used a Truglo sight before, but I have used a pendulum sight. The one drawback I had with it was it's limited distance. While they are pretty accurate, anything over about 35 yards is beyond the sights range. I know not many shots are taken a distances longer than that, but if you are confident in your skills beyond 35 yards, you might be wise to think about a fixed pin sight. I had one monster buck come out at 45 yards a few years back when I was using a pendulum sight. Thankfully, he never gave me a good shot, or I would have started cussing. lol That was the last time I used the sight.

    The Truglo Pendulum can be locked down, but I don't know if that allows it to shoot longer yardages or not.
