I bought one and didn't like it at all. It just didn't work with my eyes. To me I need the visual above and below the pin to get a good reference for elevation. But take a look at them in the store, and try to shoot a bow with one. It does work good w/ some dudes' eyes, just not mine.

thats exactly the problem i thought i would have just by lookin at them, but ive never shot one. im gettin ready to get a new sight, but i need to know what type i want first. i agree with you though. i look up and down more on my sight than side to side. any recommendations?

I had a Copper John Dead Nuts 2 on my last bow (now my back up) and it was great. On my new bow I have a G5 which is also nice. I bought the G5 more because of how it matched my bow visually (HWD camo and harmonic damper), but I think the Copper John's pins were better for visibility. On this sight the fibers are pushed through the ring at the end of the pin and kind of flair, so you only see the fiber tip. On the G5 the fibers are flush to the pin rings so you see the metal ring around the rim of the fiber. So going from the CJ to the G5 it appears as if you are giving up some sight window for the metal. But it is still a really nice sight. Very solidly built and adjustments are waaaay better on the G5.

I have a 3 pin, Trophy Ridge, I love it...... Never had any problems and can't imagine ever going back...... But everyone is different, I would go into your Pro shop and try out one to see how it feels for you
