I am looking for new sights. I have a Copper John Pro II. Great sight but the fiber optices are brittle, even after switching them. They are exposed and break very easy. This happened while hunting. Luckily I use white out on the sights and switched the unbroken ones for my 20 and thirty yard pins. The reason I am asking for suggestions is that I am tired of buying sights and not liking them. I also have an HHA Triple Threat and a Copper John Widowmaker. The price range I am looking at is from $100.00 to $150.00. I am thinking about an Apex or a Viper Pro. Thanks!

Thanks! I was hoping to get some suggestions. Because sights are a pain in the butt. They cost a lot and if you don't like them. You're stuck with them because everyone wants them for free when you get rid of them. Thanks again!

Or you can just take a tip from Tim Wells and learn to shoot instinctively. That way you can spend your sight money on something else.

Why not just buy new optic fibers ?

On the new sight, almost everyone likes;

Spott Hogg and Sword.

I know they cost a bit more, but if you like it, and it lasts a long time it will be money well spent.

I just put a Black Gold Solaris on my Destroyer and love it. Very bright pins. My 20 and 40 yrd pins are.019 and my 50 and 60 yrders are .010.

Thanks! The fiber optices have actually broken three times. The first two times Copper John sent me the replacement fibers. The third time I bought replacement fibers from cabelas' I also keep a cover on the sights while on the way to my stand. So far so good. I just don't want to get in the situation again where they break while hunting. I was lucky once when only three of the five fibers broke. I don't want to take that chance again.
