Default Cobra sidewinder

Do any of you who use or have used the sidewinder find that the red pins aren't as bright as the others. I have trouble seeing them in low light conditions. Has anyone else had this problem? If so what pin colors do you use? And what size pins?

Same post in techincal forum....see Tech forum.

I have that on one of my bows. I put all the same color. The ones I found to be the brightest

Red is the first color to go in the dark (as far as pin colors go anyway) on any sight

Red is always the most dim. I use it between my yellow and green so that I've at least got a bracket if I can't see it. The other option is to use it as your closest range pin so that the target is larger behind it. I wish manufacturers would stop making red pins in favor of orange, it's MUCH brighter, but hard to find.
