Look at the sword line of sights. Quality sights that are affordable. http://www.swordacu-site.com/

Copper John and Spott Hogg make some great sites. Both companies have 'hunter' class models for under $100...

The Apex Gear Nitrus is a nice sight, too. Retail is $99, you can find them cheaper.

I got one of the Apex inferno it is a great well built sight for 70 bucks sturdy and the fiber optics run thru a tube instead of outside it comes with 5 pins i took 4 off I could have bought any I just liked the way the fiber was protected oh and it comes with a light I thought it was a good deal had it for 5 months now and would not trade it for a 200 dollar sight

Spot Hogg makes the best multi pin sights and they have several models to choose from.

HHA makes the best single pin sight I have seen. I have one on each of my bows.

I find that funny!! Lots of things you better remember to do. Shoot until it's second nature. I leave mine set for the close shots and if I have time to range a Deer out there a little surely I'll think to move the sight.It only takes 2 seconds

I have the G5 and really like it... My buddy just bought a Viper sight and is thrilled with it.
The Copper John's are nice too.

I have an older Spothog on my bow. The barebones one and i love it. I was looking at sights (my hubbies b-day) and they have some nice ones for under a hundred bucks. Right now the sight he has is a plastic ring and the fibers are not protected so one has allready started to fall out, and the ring has broken so we had to glue it. Whatever you decide make sure it is durable. I suggest going to a local archery shop, they know their stuff and you'd be helping the little guy.
