Default Looking for a new sight...

Hey All,
I'm getting a new Ultra Elite in the near future and need new gear to go along with it. I've gotten everything else selected that I want to compliment it, except a sight that is... My budget for a sight is +/-$200... It's main purpose in life is hunting then recreational target. Any suggestions?

What you just described is a Spot Hogg site. Two models would do you well. The Hunter Hogg-it and the Hogg-it.

I personally use the Hunter Hogg-it for hunting only and love the thing. Its been on 3 bows now and hasn't failed once. The new ones come with the wrapped fiber as well making them very bright.

Buying a Spot Hogg means you're buying the last sight you'll need IMO.

What Dopler said x3.

The axcell armortech is very nice as well. I saw one at a shop the other day and it seemed very quality.

Hands down the most durable, easiest to adjust, brightest and lightest weight sight I've come across (and I've abused/destroyed a lot of top end sights hunting here). Cobra DRM .019" 5 pin.

Spot hoggs are great sights, but after trying themtheres one that in my opinion outdoes them. A Black Gold Flashpoint. Great sight, lifetime warranty, and what I really like is the photochromatic cover over the fiberoptic pins. In bright sunlight it turns a dark shade of blue to block out light and dim the pins, and in low light it turns clear to brighten the pins the darker it gets. I love mine, either that or a spot hogg you can't go wrong.
