The MBG sight I’ve had on my last bow took 10 years of abuse in the field and never had any problems. I can’t count how many times I went down with it over rough/steep terrain. Never affected POI once. That was a five pinner.

If you're looking at shooting long range it'll be $425 so you can get the 8 pin housing. Love mine but the price tag is painful.

Where you located? Id totally be interested in trying one of those things out to be completely honest. I've been known to waste money on dumber things >_<

Ever looked at the IQ sights? I'm curious about the retina lock. Seems like a legit way to deal with torque. I've never tried one myself, but considering it.

I am currently trying out the Trophy Ridge Hotwire which has 2 fixed pins and one floating pin that you can adjust on the fly.
Was originally looking at the the IQ hunter pro version of it but it was a hundred more. and I don't really feel I need the Retina lock part.
So far I am liking it..

Someday I may try the EZ V sight for kicks but... Never had an issue with pins.

My favorite sight is the option archery sight and my second is the black gold pro. Both are fantastic sights and you can custom order them however you want them setup. If you are shooting long distance the black gold will extend your reach a hair further than the option sight. I can get 121 yards out of the black gold and only 106 yards with the option.
But love of the wilderness is more than a hunger for what is always beyond reach; it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth which bore us and sustains us, the only home we shall ever know, the only paradise we ever need - if only we had eyes to see.

I was looking at the MBG pro 3 pin sight. So it is adjustable. Is it just the bottom pin that moves? And it looks like I can change the color of the green ring to red to match my bow

Correct

You are correct.  You can change each pin to a different size also. So you could go 30 yards .29, 40 yards .19 and your slider at .10 . You can also customize the colors of each pin.

Green is more visible, but set it up however you want. The pin doesn’t move, its the housing that moves

Is there an archery shop in the state that sells the MBG sights?

I bought my custom MBG through great northwest archery in Puyallup.

On the MBG the whole housing moves. The trophy taker “option “ only the pin moves, and the front half of the housing that holds the fixed pins can be flipped forward out of view.  It will be the next sight I get.
