bow site

Postby DeerCamp » Wed Aug 13, 2008 3:16 pm

Im thinking about gettinga  new bow site after the season. I have a trophy ridge and i really like it, but im gonna put it on my other bow. Im not sure what site im going to get yet, but I really like the G5's. So my question to you is what makes you choose what bow site to get? There are tons out there. Is it, looks,cost, pin size, waranty, weight, ect...?

brightness, durability, pin size, and simplicity. ive been shooting an old toxonics sight with one fat red pin for about ten years now. do you plan to hunt with it or shoot competively?

Tool less design - I don't want to have to get out an allen wrench when I'm getting it dialed in.

I also have the trophy ridge and love it. I've been looking at the hind sight just to get rid of my peep.

I shoot a Vital B Gear and have enjoyed it immensley.  Generally I shop the sales after season and buy the best quality gear I can find. This one came from a 70% off going out of business type sale.  I never have had reason to change.  If I were to change though I think I would go with your G5.  Although I read a review for a Ghost Rider Sight on bowhunting.net that I liked.  I almost need another bow......[:D]
