    Setting up my new Hoyt carbon defiant turbo and am wondering what sight to go with. What's the better way to go, spot Hogg or IQ?

    Spot Hogg - Made in USA.
    IQ - Made in China.

    If you need more than that....put a SH in one hand & the IQ in the other.....decision made.

    I had an IQ 5 pin. I couldn't get it to stay sighted in and the Fiber optics cover kept cracking. I may have just had a bad egg, but that was my experience. It also took 6+ months of constant calls and emails to 3 people to finally get my guaranteed refund. Again just my experience. I went with a MBG Ascent. Couldn't be happier.

    In my opinion Spot Hogg is a great buy. I had one on my Z7 and now on my HTX.
    I looked into IQ, but the quality of a Spot Hogg sold me.

    so i bought an iq sight a yr or so ago. the idea of the retina lock sold me on it. i thought it would help improve my form and make me a better shot. i was disappointed when i saw you have to setup the retina lock. which by the way is a pain in the *** by yourself. the retina lock is a nice way to see if your shooting the same way but it wont help your form and if not setup right just becomes a pain. i would look into another sight. i feel the iq retina lock is just another well advertised gimmick.

    I have the Spot Hogg Real Deal and I love it. It is wrapped with the small guard. It is the only thing I kept from my last bow. You can't go wrong with Spot Hogg.

    I do not normally chime in on threads like these but had to reply... Spot Hogg, there is no comparison between the two in build quality and construction.

    That said, I'd buy an Axcel Armortech;)
