    Mine all came with levels,now and then I will take a glance when shooting in the yard,but from the stand I always give it a quick look before shooting.Wish my older 2 sights had bigger levels,just hard to pick them up quickly.

    Used them all the time years ago when I was much more serious about 3D. On sidehill and up/down hill shots they can make a difference on left/right impact.

    Mine came with one and always check it just prior to the release. May be in my head but think it helps me from torqueing and tilting the bow.

    Yep. Sight level on all. Nice thing about a Sure Loc or such, easy to adjust for all 3 axises - never went for the 4th axis, but sure thought about it. Fixed sight frame you usually have to shim and can be a royal pain.

    All my sights came with them, and I use them for the above reasons. When I first started shooting my shots were left/right. I retrained myself to look at the bubble first. Now I see it without spefically looking at it and the bow is within the lines 95% of the time when I get to full draw.

    Same here. All my sights have them, and I check them on each shot. One little tip, if you get glare from the bubble level, put a piece of matte finish Scotch tape over it. Can see through it, but it kills the glare.
