I have a HHA. It is a single pin slider. It has 3' of fiber optic. It seems VERY bright. Paid about $80. Very happy with unit, very well built,no plastic all aluminum. I think it is a HHA 5000.

I'll agree with these guys! The tape under the fiber optic really helps in low light conditions and you can add a light.

I have an HHA 5500 sight for hunting. It has 5ft of fiber optic wraped around it. You can adjust the brightness by sliding the rheostat. If you want for info on HHA sights. Go to www.hhasports.com

Hey what about Impact Archery? They've got super bright pins and they won't cost you the price of your firstborn.

I would have to say the Cosmic by Impact Archery. That is by far the brightest I've ever seen. Second I would say the HHA Optimizer 5000. I own both types and I've compared the two next to each other and the Cosmic gets the edge. You won't go wrong with either one. Good Luck....

Impact has very bright sight. I am using one of their housings with a 4X lens in it for indoor archery this year. Very bright aiming dot so to speak. It was fairly inexpensive. Real nice.

Tru Glo makes a tritium pin that you might be able to put right on your sight by just changing the pin. Impact and HHA have bright sights but tritium glows constantly it needs no charging like something thats "glow in the dark" it can be pitch black and the pin will glow all night long. I think they last about 5-10 years not sure how they are in bright sunlight but personally alot af fiber in direct light makes my pin halo. HHA has a rheostat that allows you to control how bright the pin is. Hope this helps.

I love my cosmic impact sight. You can't miss the sight and it was about 80 bucks or so.

Moonlight will turn the fiber optics on this one HHA-5500 it has five feet of fiber and is so bright my hunting partner thought I had left the light on (didn't have one).

Another Vote For Hha, I Use The 5000 The 5500 Is Too Bright.they Also Have Lifetime Warranty

I spent about 4 months looking all the sliders over last year. True---the Impact models jump right out at you. But they are mostly plastic. Plastic is for toys. I also needed micro-adjust as I like to tinker a lot. Like I said, I looked at many and finally settled on the HHA OL-5000. I like to consider things like "all metal", metal pin, brightness, adjustability, pin guard material and how well is the pin protected. Warranty. Price is the last consideration.
As for my comment about plastic sights? Have you ever dropped your bow to the ground from 20' up? I have, and it's dumb, but it happens. That's why I choose the accessories I do.
