    I currently have a trophy ridge react 5 pin on my no cam. Looking to go down to a 3 pin. Less clutter in the sight is what I’m going after. What’s everybody’s favorite

    I have the same one and I too, am looking for maybe something a little less clutter. I like my trophy ridge but with the speed of most bows now days there isn't much gap difference at least for me between all my pins. I'm looking at possibly going with a one pin like these in the pics for something different.

    if you want less clutter; check out vertical pin sights.
    My favorites are the ones in the signature line below...but I'm biased. :cool:

    Agreed, best line of sight, precision placement, I'll never go back to horizontal.

    I have tried most of the sights and I always gravitate back to Axel sights. Their quality is excellent and their customer service is top notch. To me they are also the easiest and most precise to adjust. But that is opinion only

    I’m using a single pin HHA and enjoy the open field of view and no clutter in the site ring!

    If you like Trophy Ridge I'd stay with them. They make some good 3 pin sights too. I have the exact same one on my Bowtech but put a single pin Spot Hogg on my Mathews. I like them both a lot. The Trophy Ridge React Trio Pro seems nice. 3 pins and looks like the vertical pin might be adjustable. I haven't used any but I know there are several companies who make a 3 pin sight with 2 fixed and a floater. Might be a good option.

    I’m partial to Copper John sights. I have a 3 pin Mark 1 and a Mark 4 slider. Both have very bright pins, come with a light and both are built like a tank.
    I really like the “micro dot” technology both of them have. It makes a .19 pin look like a .15 which I feel helps me with my accuracy.

    This x2^^ The Trophy Ridge React Trio Pro seems nice. 3 pins and looks like the vertical pin might be adjustable. The pins ARE adjustable. The 3rd pin is fixed at 40, but can slide/adjust out 120 yrds.

    I just got my bow back today from the shop today. Had a new Black Gold Ascent Verdict put on. Took me 2 sets to dial it in perfect. So now I'm just wondering why I ever shot anything else. Highly recommend.

    It is interesting to see the choices of sights on the market, only limited by your budget. Lancaster Archery Supply has 16 pages of hunting sights. Looking at the Lancaster catalogue, page 166 has the Garmin Xero A1i Ranging Bow Sight. Does everything but release the bowstring for you. It's not cheap- $999.99! That's more than I have in all my archery gear! Good luck- the forum members are a good resource to get you started.

    I am all about my black gold 3 pin- slider. Very well made. Simple. Elegant.
