Time for a sight upgrade. Suggestions?
« on: February 19, 2017, 08:19:03 PM »
Want a 3-5 pin (prefer smaller pins) that can dial out further range with a floating pin.
What's everyone like & why?
I hear good things about black gold.

Went to spot Hogg fast Eddie XL last year, single pin. Just got it back after sending it in to spot Hogg to get the new dial and 3 pin housing. I think I'm really going to like the 3 pin with slider.

I loved it for shooting in the back yard. Knowing my distance. Dialed in. But hunting with it last year was a different story. I know some guys are great with the hold over/under just leaving the pin set at 30. I like having a pin on my target I guess. So 20,30,40  with the slider will b great I think.

The fast Eddie XL does come from the factory with a 2,3, or 5 pin option now. The dial is upgraded from the previous one also. Lots more to grab on to to dial in. Also the yardage pointer is much improved too.

My Black gold pins are brighter than Spot Hogg. I had the Black Gold Ascent 3 pin. Great sight. Waiting on UPS to bring me the Newer Ascent http://blackgoldsights.com/sights-ascent

You're looking for an Option Archery sight. An Option 4 would be 3 fixed pins and one floating pin for dialing the yardage. With a round housing you can get out to 80 yards or so, an oblong housing will get you out to over 100 yards. Nice sights but they aren't cheap.

I am looking at getting the 3 pin ascent.  What upgraded sight did you get?

Spot hogg has the best, most protected pins on the market, which is important when hunting and toting your bow through the brush/pulling it up into a tree stand....I shoot an axcel accutouch HD. First thing I do is remove the axcel scope and replace with spot hogg
