    spot hogg with wrap.

    if you are in the military they offer a great military discount.

    if your looking a lot more budget look for a good used copper john in the classifieds

    I've had good luck the last 3 years with vital bow gear sights. Take a look at them. I think thier pins are as bright as any. all aluminum construction, never broke a pin either. they're worth a look.

    I guess all those mentioned are good sights.

    BUT, you can't beat SWORD sights for the money, quality, and customer service!

    I just got a Copper John and so far I really like it. It's solid and the pins are nice and bright.

    Look at the Sword line, I don't think they can be beat for the MONEY!!!! As it appears a few of my fellow hunting brothers would agree. Even the CHEAPEST Sword sight is better than some of the TOP - Dollar sights made by some of the companies.

    I've tried several multi pin and single pin sights. By far the best sight for the money is the Sword Twilight hunter. The Spot Hoggs are good too but very pricey.
