here's a question, do fiber optic strands loose thier light transmission properties over time? My Cobra Sidewinder pins seem a whole lot less bright than when new. I compared my son's new Cobra to mine and their half as bright. Sight is about 4 years old and when it was new looked like the light was on all the time, not so now!

How much time over time do you mean? I've had my Flashpoint on now for just over a year, and they are as bright as can be still. When I use my fiber light that even gets them glowing even brighter. Just can't use the light during bowhunting season, but can during the general season.

I switched to a new sight pin system this year and noticed that the new ones are much brighter than the last...so I'd say yeah, I think they can lose the "glow" that they have when new. Some systems have replaceable fibers. Might be something to check out

I never noticed it before but now that you say something I think Ill have to agree with you, mine seem dimmer also. Mine is five years old.
