Default Need a new sight...Suggestions?

Hey guys, I' m going to be replacing my sight after this season. What sight do you guys suggest? So far I' ve been looking at a Trophy Ridge Nitro Extreme or a Copper John Dead Nuts. I currently shoot a Savage pendulum and am not against getting another pendulum. Thanks for the suggestions!

I use a Spot Hog hogg-it for both hunting and 3d.

IMO the Spot Hogs are the best sight out there and yes you will pay for them but they are worth every cent.

Another vote here for Copper John. I have had the same sight for three years on two different bows. It will be on my new bow also. They are all metal and very tough. One suggestion. If you are going to use the sight for hunting. Go with the .029 size pins. I little heavier and tougher and will hold up better in my opinion. I had the .019 pins but they got bent a couple time so I switched.

Also, the Spot-Hogg sights are tough to beat, but a little pricey compared to others. But well worth the money.

I' m partial to HHA single sight pins. www.hhasports.com

But if I were to go back to a 5 pin site I' d probably go with a Spot-Hogg.

2 words.....Spot Hogg!

Best sight I have ever owned. Bright, strong, and very adjustable.

Well worth the money.

I picked up a Copper John Dead Nuts last year and I am very impressed with the durability and design of the sight as well as the brightness of the pins/pin guard. Definitely a top-notch sight.

I like the HHA style sights, several out there make them. I like the idea of moveable if need be. Some will make all kinds of stories about them but when I get into a new area I get the distances and can easily adjust the sight or me if need be on incoming deer. I do like the idea of only having one pin. Makes longer shots or darker type shots much clearer....no im not talking in the dark just early morning or foggy days.
