    I have $140 to buy a set of sights. I shot recreational 3D and deer hunt in southern MO.

    With that what would you buy?

    Just got a TroGlo Micro Brite 5 Pin. For a micro adjust sight, this one is rock solid, and no tools needed. I was looking at the TruBall Excel sights, they're OK but not worth the $200 price tag.

    I disagree! The Armortech sights by TRU Ball are built like a tank. Tough and fully enclosed fibers. Well worth the money in my opinion. I'd recommend the sight to anyone.

    ^^ This... I bought the Axcel Vision HD this year and it is rock solid. However I think it may be a little out of your price range. You may want to look at the Apex.

    HHA OptiLite. Specifically the OL5519. But I'm a single pin sight kind of guy.

    Either the new G5 sight with one stationary and one adjustable pin or any adjustable HHA.

    I also just got this micro brite 5 pin. The pros are the price $99., its tool less and micro adjust, and nice 5 pin sight ( I got mine in DDP). the cons are all pins are the same color and there is no micro just on the pins only elevation and windage.. I think its great value for the money.

    If I were in your shoes (and I will be soon) I would go with a HHA single pin slider. I really want a CBE but not practical for hunting or in the price range. I have a 6 pin that is just way too much in the sight window now that I have shot a single pin.

    HHA would be my choice for that price range.

    For a couple bucks more, go with a Spot Hogg. Tough as nails and all of the adjustment you'll ever need. I've been using the same Hunter Hogg-it on three bows now and it looks and works like the day I took it out of the box. When I decide to trade up again to a new bow, this site will go on it as well.

    I have the TruGlo and couldn't be more satisfied. Adjustments for elevation and wind-age are simple.
