I've been shopping around for a new sight to upgrade the RTH Trophy Ridge Joker I've got on my bow currently. Looking in the $100 dollar range and was narrowed down to 2.

1. Dead Ringer The Wheel for an affordable 4 Pin w/ a Floater Pin, but have not seen enough positive feedback to pull the trigger. Ive seen these as low as $63 on amazon.
2. Leaning towards the Trophy Ridge Fix 5 for Micro Adjusting Pins at a good price. I have seen plenty of positive feedback on this sight and lands at only $70.

Any other option I'm overlooking for the Hybrid or Fixed Pin sights primarily for Midwest whitetail and mid to long range practice?

The CBE TL3 is imo the best budget friendly sight on the market.

Depends on what you considering "budget" I guess, but the trophy ridge hotwire is a good one. But that could be considered pricey, just not in comparison to the other $300 options haha

Check out the CBE Tactic and Tactic Hybrid.

These would be my pick if I was looking to upgrade for $100 or less. They are easy to use, have great pins that are bright and they have a nice ring on the scope to center your peep around.

Agreed. Id be willing to spend a little over for something that delivers a lot. Does the sight tape placement create any frustrations for adjusting in a stand?

I really like the Hybrid... if this was 4 pin I would buy it now. I may go with a 3 pin hybrid though... Hadnt thought about anything less than 4 but this looks perfect.

I have a Trophy Ridge Hotwire. It is a nice sight. The 2 pins are micro adjust just like the fix which I really like. I don't plan on adjusting the bottom one in the tree. I use it mainly for shooting 3D and make it a 20-30-40 once season opens. I like only having the 3 pins when hunting instead of the 5. Keep an eye on the classifieds here there are alot of sights in the $100 range

CBE Tactic Micro. $79 , 3 or 5 pin, micro click adjustable, and a fiber optic light. Best money I have spent in awhile. Replacing a Trophy Ridge that was a pain to adjust.

If you get to look at a Tactic Micro, it is very hard to believe it is under 100 bucks.
Micro stands for the micro adjustments, not size etc.

I've been impressed with the Truglo Veros I picked up a month ago. Pins are nice and bright, micro adjust, adjustable light--everything I need.

I got a ROcky Mountain 56101 5 pin site from Amazon for under 50 bux. Its not plastic and it even has 3rd axis and tool less to adjust windage and elevation.

I also went with Black Gold Rush for all of those reasons. Just got it sighted in and have been really liking it.

There is not a better value on the market than the black gold rush. Others try to meet the value for the price point but can’t.

Take a look at the B3 Exact Hunter. American made, all aluminum, 2nd/3rd axis adjustments, micro windage, push button light and only weighs 4 oz. You can score one for about $130 and IMO it's one of the better sights in that price range.

That being said, I like my Spot Hogg Grinder better, built like a tank, American made, tolerances so tight I don't need 2nd/3rd axis (I checked it after installation), very bright and multiple sizes on the sight ring, micro adjust pins, threaded for a light, but it's in another price bracket at around $200.
