I've been wanting to get a new sight for my bow, I'm just using the stock 3 pin sight that came on it, its a Trophy Ridge. With the holidays coming up ill be getting some gift cards from the relatives so im gonna get a new sight. So I was wondering what everyone else is using and what they recommend and why?

Mine is the 3 pin trophy ridge and I like it just fine. I have mine set at 10, 20, and 30 yds. To me, that's all I need... now every hunter is different. Some like 3 pins, some like 5, and some may only like 1. Just depends on how comfortable you are making short and long distance shots.

Myself and a few of my friends use a five pin Truglo Brite-Site Xtreme. It was only $35 and it works just as good as a more expensive sight. I've been using it for the past few years and it holds zero perfectly. I can hold small groups out to 50 yards. My favorite part about it is that it has a bubble level, which is a necessity if you want to hit the bullseye past 30 yards. I can't recommend this sight enough.
