Favorite Bow sights

Recommended Posts

Looking to depart from my traditional 5 pin cobra that has worked but could use an upgrade. Just curious to see what is hype and what works well. I would like one that has larger pins and a light would be helpful. Also, I have heard that some of the newer sights have a tendency to be loud.

I've used HHA sites on my last three bows- been very happy with them. You can choose the size of the pin, so if you want a bigger pin, you can have it. They also make a light that mounts on the scope if you want that.

If you're willing to part with the cash, Spott Hoggs are REALLY tough to beat. Best sight on the markety, IMO. However, they're dang proud of their product and price accordingly...

I have nothing but great things to say about my Sword Twilight Hunter. It has a light and you can get pins in different sizes. My top pin is .029 and the bottom four are .019.

Look at Shaffer's Fiber Optic sight. I switched to this one last season and man what a difference in low-light this sight has made!

Not the cheapest, but you get what you pay for.

Unless you really need the pins, get a 3-pin sight or a single pin sight depending on your bow. I like less clutter and I've chosen the "wrong pin" before and missed in the heat of the moment.

If money is tight, the newer Tru-glo sights are just as good, very bright and easy to adjust.

If you're getting more technical, I love my HHA single pin. Sword, Spothogg and Copper John are also great sights.

I have had a spot hogg hogg-it and I didn't like how the pins adjusted. I prefer the axcel armortech sights. I'm gonna get a armortech hd pro soon

    • Did someone pee in your charcoal 😁?
    • I like to see the fish that gets away verses not. A few weeks ago, I was trolling for walleyes on the SLR and while reeling one in, something grabbed a hold of it and fought hard for a while but chewed the walleye pretty bad. Trolled over the same are 20 minutes later and caught another walleye and this time it didn't let go and I saw what was eating my walleyes and it was a huge musky that got close to the boat and snapped the line and left with my crankbait and fish. So, the one I saw that "got away" was a cooler sight than the mystery fish that attacked my walleye that I never got to see earlier that day
    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme.
