Default new bowhunter, need some suggestions

Hey guys,

This is my first year bow hunting. I'm a long time gun hunter. But I am now sooo addicted to using a bow now!!!. I bought a PSE stinger this year to try out bow hunting. I plan on upgrading next year.

So far I have two does, no bucks yet with my bow. My question is, I am looking to upgrade my pin sites. I have a 3 pin fiber optic site right now. But it is still VERY hard to see in low light conditions for some reason.

I mainly hunt from my summit tree stand, alos a double bull blind, all on my own property..my buddy swares by his pendulum site. But aren't they only effective while hunting from an elevated position?
Im asking because Like I said I hunt from a blind as well.

Any reccomendations on a GOOD site? I need something that is visible in low light conditions.

As I said, I am very new to bow hunting, so I don't want to go buy some junk, funds are tight..so any tips or suggestions would be great..

thanks fellas!

Theres alot of good sights out there right now, and IMO its alot of personal pref involved. I have a 5 pin trophy ridge its nice, however Ive shot some hoyts with a single pin stack in the middle, that Ide like to switch to. You might want to look into a single pin stack, maybe it will suit you better. It dosent block out the target as much. Just a thought. The TR fire wire v5 dosent look bad

I shoot an apex single pin sight. Real bright in low light. also comes with a light that will illuminate ur pin when it gets real dark. its very durable and easy to adjust.

I personally like the Tru-Glow with the wrap around fiberoptics,very bright even in my ground blind... The Apex sights are pretty bright as well and both come with a pin light but have never had to use the light cause I could see the pins just fine...

Spot-Hogg and Sur-Loc are both top notch archery sights. I shoot a Spot-Hogg Hunter and it is a very solid sight, however, it will set you back $150+. The Spot-Hogg Real Deal is also a very good sight and is more affordable. I have heard very good things about Sur-Loc as well.
