I will not stock those, there is a lot of sights out there that give you plenty of light, or use a light attachment or the trinumim site. For the money some items are just out there. Some items seem to be great quality others I'm not sure of.

The extras that you can put on your car? The likes of louvers and shag carpet, tiddly knobs and flick switches. Radio head set units and cbs. Roll cages; Roll Bars; Sway Bars and Clay bars. Stuff like that. This history of what cars started the phase or where they started from and ended up in. Should someone have the information to make that viabable...

I use the quiver and the hostage pro rest. Excellent quality. The hostage pro rest you will see a lot reveiws about the brushes wearing out. This arrow rest is not really made for a lot of target shooting, mostly for hunting. I fletched my arrows so they were 120 degrees with no helical, I have no problem with arrow flight when shooting broads or field tips out to 40 yards. Any farther then that I need a 2 degree helical to help with arrow flight but It does wear the brushes a lot faster. I only shoot father than 40 in some tournaments. I shoot 200-300 arrows a week and I replace the brushes maybe 3 times a year. I hope this will give some insight on the rest.

I totally agree, their products are excellent quality. I've set-up their Hostage rest on my sons bow and their stabilizer and both are excellent products. My father uses their quiver and it's as good as ANY I've ever seen, I really like the magnet top to hold b-heads solidly!

What is the best for ground blinds? Does the octane sight make a difference? I mean the most critical here is the first 20 min and the last 20 min. In a ground blind I haven't come across any that are what I would call great but I haven't used any of the octane sights.
