    I'm an Armortech fan. I really like their pin sights.

    My opinions are MY OPINIONS. Take them for what they are worth.

    ^^^x2 I reely like the ease of adjustments on the pins..I, However special ordered my HD so I could have both .19 and .10 pins
    Spot Hoggs are a pain to adjust..that's why I sold mine and got the Armourtech HD

    .........and why you think the one you suggest is the best. I've used a few relatively expensive sights before (G5's for example), and for the life of me, I can't see that much difference in them. If the pins are bright and tough and the sight is easily adjusted, what else do you want in a sight (I'm talking hunting, not tournament archery sights here). In fact, the absolute best arrangement I've ever seen for a bowsight light are on some of the Extreme Archery Product sights (Recon and Raptor) and the fibers are easy to replaces as well. These are not expensive sights.

    Good post and I'm interested to see why people like what they do.

    I have a spot hogg right on and love it. I believe they are the toughest sight available and that is the main thing i look for in hunting equiptment. Sure there are other sights that are more fancy, and have more adjustments but this one is the most rugged in my opinion.

    My favorite pin site is the Hogg-It by Spott Hogg. I love the durability and the fact that there are no lock nuts for the axis adjustments/windage/elevation. The pins are a bit hard to get precise, but when you get them set it is a great site. Mine had the small guard and .10 pins with the wrap. I really enjoyed it for pins. However, when I started shooting 3D, I was shooting a scope/lens with an up pin. The first hunting season after the move to a scope, I thought I would never get used to the pins again. Instead of missing or making a poor shot and badly wounding an animal because of shooting the pins wrong, I just went to a single pin mover. I have the HHA 5510 with the small aperture and it's the slider model. I really REALLY love this site. The only drawback is that I don't have the 6" dovetail extension anymore. That is the only thing I don't like about the HHA. I would like to try the new Sure Loc Lethat Weapon or Lethal Weapon Max. These look like they are a vast improvement over the old version. Glad they got rid of the little tiny lock cups in the pins. Man, those things were a headache!

    Very solidly built....

    Lots of good sights out there. CBE and sword are my two favorites. IMO CBE has the best scopes and Sword puts up with the abuse I give it during hunting season. Both cbe and sword have good looking price tags on them.

    Yep. Good sights but no micro-adjust on the pins.

    you should look at the Sure Loc lethal weopon, and check the features, adjustability, and LIFETIME warranty. the sight has a built in spline wrench, so you have the only tool that you need for adjustments with you all the time! not a cheap sight, but the best sight i have ever seen, period.

    armortech armortech armortech! have had it on two bows now and it is awesome. Sights in better than anything ive ever played with. the adjustments are easy and precise. pins are bright and love the fact that they are completely protected. maybe its just me but I have never been impressed with the spott hoggs. IMO they are way overpriced for a bare bones sight. The armortech offers so much more for a comparably priced sight sight. best sight on the market for multiple pins. Then again these are just my opinions.

    You should check out the New Lethal Weapon, its on the expensive side but it offers a lot more adjustability then pretty much any sight out there.
