Are the pendulum site any good (Trophy Ridge)?

It depends on what you plan to do with your bow.
For hunting, I like Copper John's Dead Nuts - good solid sight at a reasonable price. Other good brands are Spot Hogg, Carolina, Toxonics and several others.
For 3D - Copper John Dead Nuts Pro, Toxonics, Spot Hogg and others
For Target, SureLoc & Toxonics are my favorits.

There are a lot of sights available. You need to first decide on how you plan to use your bow and then make a selection based on that.

Hope this helps,

I just got a carolina sight for my bow and so far like it. The one of have has finger adjustements for the pins, no allen wrench needed to adjust it.

I haven't tried the Trophy Ridge pendulum sight so I cannot comment on it. However, sights made by Spott Hogg, Copper John, Vital Bow Gear, Extreme and Cobra are usually relatively highly regarded....assuming all metal construction.

Trophy Ridge builds some GREAT sights! I have several of them and couldn't be happier. I think the Mantis is as good if not better pendulum as anything else in the industry. You'll love the product.

Two words: Spot Hogg

They are expensive, but IMHO they are the best built sight out there.

If you really want a pendulum sight.. then the TR Mantis is one of the best on the market. I normally don't care too much for the TR line of sights... for one I can't stand vertical pins... but that's just me. But the Mantis is a great sight. Very solid.. and doesn't make alot of noise like most pendulum sights out there.

Personally I use a Spot Hogg Hogg It... and couldn't be happier.
