I think before anyone can answere that, It would be good to know what you plan on using it for?
hunting? target? if you want a pin sight i personly think you cant beet the copper johns,
I hunt with the hha movable and love it,
and if your looking into using it strictly for target the copper johns A.N.T.S is a awesome sight.

If you are going to use it stricktly for Hunting I would find a GOOD Fiber Optic sight. find one that has a housing that protects not only the pins but the fiber optics that are outside the sight area. Because you will eventually bang it against something. Purchase something that looks like it could take a little abuse. Nothing worse than being 100 miles from nowhere and have your equipment break.

Vital Bow Gear.

I wouldn't recommend their arrows because I've had trouble with them before, but I love the sites. Mine is a model from 2 yrs ago but it's pretty much the same as the news ones. Easily adjustible with microtune and they also have an awesome blacklight that attaches to them. This really comes in handy in low light conditions. I have a regular sight, and my dad has the one pin slider. We're both happy with them.

VBG? I don't like their sights. Very rudimentary. If you want a very good one then bite the bullet and get an HHA OL 5000. Whatever, make sure there is no plastic on it except the fiber optics themselves. Plastic an break, rattle and just plain make noise.

I'd have to say Vital Bow Gear also. I have their Pro Slide model and geeesh that thing is bright. It glows at night in almost total darkness.
