    CBE Tek Hunter, Opinions

    i have been kinda droolin over these sights for a while,just picked one of these up yesterday and was wondering how people liked them. at first i was not gonna buy it because the pins did not seem that bright, at least compared to my viper preadator microtune. what sold me was the machining and quality of the sight. the tolerances were tight with no slop. was wondering what guys who have had them for a while thought, pros and cons.

    I love mine. I hunted with the 5-pin head. The pins are plenty bright, adjustments are solid/precise and there are no rattles.

    To save myself some $ over buying a 4th Quad Lite, I decided this weekend that I'm going to convert it over to a "custom Tek Hunter/Target"

    I ordered an extension like the Quad series has, a dovetail like the Quad's have but with quiver mounting holes, a 3rd axis block and a small scope housing. What I wanted to accomplish was to create another target site for a multi-purpose bow. It will be setup for field/fita throughout the summer and then I'll swap back to the 5-pin head come hunting season. My quiver will already be able to be bolted on without even pulling the mounting block off.

    Here it is on an old bow and before this "conversion".

    Great sight and have used one for years. I shoot a single pin. Easy to move if needed.

    I like having the choice to put and aperture I want on it.

    Assuming you have the micro adjust windage unit, it is the same as on their target sights. Order a CBE scope housing of your choice, pull the one bolt out of the 5-pin head, bolt on the scope housing.

    You probably have a cap-head allen in there now. You would just need the tapered head for the scope housing. They might even be included with the housings, I can't remember.

    I've only had mine for a week, but am absolutely loving it. Pin is plenty bright for me, and the ease of adjustment is a welcome change from what I'm used to. No more allen wrenches for me!

    I have one on one of my Alpha elites for 3d and love it. It has a single pin scope on it. I wouldnt hesitate to use it for hunting either.

    I've got the same exact sight on my GT500 and love it so far.

    The body of the sight is great, but I didn't like the multi-pin head. I put a CBE scope on and it was great!

    I heard a few guys voice concerns about the pin brightness and the multi-pin heads when I asked for feedback about these sights so I crossed them off my list. But everybody is different and has different preferences.

    Not sure on the weight, not as heavy as it looks. I have the Tek-Hybrid which i think might be lighter than the other. I do like the multi-pin sight, looks like its gonna be good for 3D and hunting. When I shot yesterday the pins were plenty bright, not sure about low light conditions but it does have an adjustable setting light so it should be great. The quality is the best I have seen on any sight. I think I will get a single pin head for indoor.

    I really like my Tek Hunter XL but I think that the outside housing could be a tad smaller. When I look thru my peep I like to see the edges of my site housing to center it to my peep. But then, thats just me having anal glaucoma.

    well, I made it a point tonight to shoot in low light and found that the pins on my 5 pin Tek-Hybrid are plenty bright. they do not seem that bright in sunny conditions "which they don't need to be" but when it counts they are great.

    I love mine. 20 to 60 yard pins. I use 20 pin for elevation bar and get 100 yards without hitting fetching on scope. On this bow i use 1/8 peep and adjusted extension bar out to match peep with scope.

    Been shootin this sight all week. Should have spent the money from the beginning, could have saved myself from the 4 or 5 cheaper sights I tried. Never seen a better quality sight.

    The quality on the CBE sights have been awesome for years. I have had a few cbe sights over the years they have always been rock solid.
