Bow Sights For 2010

You will find several good new sights with bright pins and durable designs. These new sights deliver both visibility and durability.

TRUGLO Micro-Brite
The Micro-Brite is a very clean, simple design with lots of adjustability. TruGlo is offering this sight with a Decreasing Pin Diameter Design. The pins get increasingly smaller as they go down -- as the distances increase. That way, the pin covers less of the vital area on long shots while remaining as visible as needed for fast, close shooting. The sight features an optional external light source and fiber optic pins. It's available in three- and five-pin models. (972) 774-0300,


Apex Bone Collector
Apex Gear is a division of TruGlo. The name may not roll of the tongue with ease: BC4614CF Bone Collector, but it is a highly functional three- or five-pin sight with the same Decreasing Pin Diameter design as found on the Micro-Brite. The BC4614CF features a push-button light, long fiber optic fibers and full pin protection. The sight is also easily adjustable for windage and elevation. (972) 774-0300,

IQ Bowsight
At the ATA show, this company unveiled a new way to overcome inconsistent bow shooting. Their IQ Bowsight with Retina Lock has a magnifying lens on top of the sight. When you are at full draw, and there is no torque, you can see a lighted dot. If your form is less than perfect, you can't see the dot. The Retina Lock traps light so it's legal in all states. The sight and pins are made from aircraft-grade aluminum, and it has a flexible four-axis adjustment. $199.99 for four pins, $219.99 for seven. (800) 282-4868,

Cobra Python
One of the challenges we face when setting up a bow is getting the sight to correctly line up within the constraints of its adjustment range. Sometimes the combination of anchor point and bow design literally make it impossible to get the sight to line up. The new Python has a reversible mounting bracket that you can flip over to gain a huge amount of adjustment range. The sight employs five fiber optic filaments wrapped around the front of the round pin guard. (800) 352-6272,

G5 Optix Rock Sight
The Optix Rock comes by its name honorably. This thing is as solid as a rock. The dual-track sight body holds multiple pins with a wide, round pin guard to keep them from breaking. Pins come in sizes .019 and .010 inches in diameter. The .010 are the smallest fiber pins I've seen. The rack-and-pinion micro-adjust is precise and solid. (866) 456-8836,
