I think that if you hunt out of a treestand on relatively flat ground, then a pendulum is the way to go.

I have tried alot and reccomend Savage over the rest.

I have also heard good things about the Toxonics Snyper.

This is another trend....Pendulums in the late 80's,early 90's were very popular,they went away for a while,Keller was about the one still showing in most catalogs. Now almost everybody is offering swingers again. I used a pendulum years ago. Back when bows were in the 200-220 fps range and arrows were AMO weight or heavier. They worked great. With bows that shoot 240+ fps ,I dont see a need.Thats from shooting my foam deer in the back yard from the roof,point of impact changes from angles shooting down arent as significant with todays hot hi-velocity bows. I couldnt say that with older ,slower bows with heavy(by todays standards)arrows.

You don't need a pendulum sight. It is just another gimmick. How many of the top deer hunters use one? None. They are noisy and aren't as durable as a regular sight. Heck you don't even need to sight your bow in from an elevated stand.
