Hey guys, I am just getting back into archery... (Took a few years off).
I am completely out of the loop on what's hot and what's not.

Just picked up a BRAND NEW Bowtech 101st Airborne 70# 29" for $550! :)



Anyway... I have no idea what sight I should get! I know I want a multiple pin sight. (Maybe 3-4 pins). I will be using the bow for target practice and hunting, with hunting being my main use. So I don't want to be messing around with a 1-pin sight when I am out in the woods hunting. Just a personal preference.

What are your recommendations? I don't want to spend a fortune, but at the same time I want something that is nice.

I sure like my TRUGLO Tru-Site XTREME. They have the fibers very protected (always nice when hunting), comes with a light, and toolless click adjust windage & elevation. Bowtech has 'em on their site for $100

Spot Hogg - Hogg-It or Hunter Hogg-It. They cost more initially but you won't be replacing them if you get into target shooting with "hunter" class gear.

If you want the best Hogg it. If your not ready for a new Hogg, look for some new discontinued(last years model) sights on ebay or a used Hogg on AT traders forum.

hoggs are nice but you DID say"I don't want to spend a fortune" so that leaves one that is built just as well.

Sword !!

Those Hogg-its look nice! Just a little bit to pricey for me.

So those sword sights are pretty popular? Would the Apex Hunter be a good choice?

Also should I go for the .019 or the .029? (Going to be a hunting bow)

any of the swords are a good sight. the cheaper models are built just as tough as the top of the line. just different features. :wink:

Researched,

I researched sights and what I found was the Viper Predator Pro MT was the best of the best. Several have changed to the Viper after seeing mine. I know own 3 of them and until I find a better one, I'll keep them.

But obviously Spott Hogg and Sword make very respectable sights. I wouldn't have issue with either of those as well.

Apex

I would go with the Apex line from Tox., they are very bright and has a very nice built in light. These are the brightest sights I have seen persoanlly and I have a single pin and it is bright enough to shoot after hours!!!!!!!!!

I would give them a look if I were you. Let me know what you think about them!

Well guys thanks for all the help! You have helped me SOOOOOOO Much!!!!

Went with the Spot Hogg Hunter Hogg-It

Picked it up brand new in packaging for $120 TYD on ebay! :)

Doesn't have the wrap, but it should be good enough for a "novice"
