    best bow sight for low light conditions

    I have been searching for the best bow sight for low level conditions. I've tried a couple but have been unhappy. I'm tired of wating money. Any suggestions?

    g5 makes a four pin sight with a led light on the top of it to shine on the fiber optics inside the sight. it costs about 150$ though. guaranteed to give you enough light.
    2006 Rytera Bullet X. Easton FMJ's with Blazers and 2 blade Rages. Yeah, it's pretty sweet.

    Without actually using an l.e.d., IMHO, Impact makes the brightest sights on the market. I have seen almost all of them, and Impact is the brightest I have found. They make a ton of different models, and of course the models with more fiber optics exposed to the light will be brighter, but their better models are tough to beat as far as brightness is concerned.

    Is it just the way my eyes work, or are some pins TOO bright? it seem as though they are bright enough so I can't see what is beyond very well. Could be just me though

    I just got an Impact Collector. I paid $54 bucks for it. it is extremely bright with no light needed! And its extremely durable( Believe me, i unscrewed the wrong screw and it fell off and bounced off the concrete and there aint even a scratch on it). Here is a pic of mine(best pic i could get, the pins were too bright for the camera!

    I use a Pollington Red dot.11 different brightness settings for any conditions.Only one dot though.With my setup it is good to about 32-34 yards with no holdover.There are also adjustable mounts made for longer range.

    I hunt out of a ground blind and shooting at dusk and dawn are no problem with the cobra sidewinder sights.. Sidewinder's are the brightest sight that I've shoot...

    Vital Gear Trapper...Glows hanging in my room hours after a hunt...I think there's glow in the dark tape under the rings.....though I have to say Montana flashpoint controls light the best(I owned one once)...always made the pin perfect....

    I totally agree and have that sight and the Hammer Head (it's the same it just has 5 pins). I went to Bass Pro and compared ALL the sights they had and the Impact Archery was the Brightest that's why I bought em'. The Montana Black gold Radiant and Flash point are arguably the same but I still thought the Impact Archery sights were brightest.

    I can tell you this I lose sight of the deer against the ground way before I lose sight of the pins. Even hog hunting in Texas at night (with an almost full moon) I could seem em' with no external light.

    My sight in my sig is so bright in daylight conditions that it hurts to look at it when the sun is out. I could see it with a full moon.

    I have a sword twighlight hunter and it is very good, when shooting out in the yard with my neighbor I am able to shoot 15 or 20 minutes longer than him because he can't see his pins, he has a hogg-it but it could be just different shooters. We never tried switching to see if it was though. Just my 2 cents.

    Dang, I guess I am the only one. Maybe I just need a bigger peep.

    I would vote for the Sword 3rd Plane site. Really bright when light gets low.
