    Pros
    Micro Adjust is awesome. Just loosen up the vice clamp and twist the adjustment knobs. The nice thing is that you can hear and feel the clicks of each turn. 1 turn is 1/8" at 20 yrds. Much like a rifle scope. The sight will not move on its own when the clamp is loose either.

    fiber optics are very solid. I took it out near dark and pins were very visible. the one I got has a battery light with a low and high bright settings.

    Sight is built solid

    Lets face it, the sight looks BA.

    Cons

    the glow circle is not as bright as alot of the sights out there. I don't find those useful anyhow, so its not a big deal for me.

    The knob for the battery light is located right behind the quiver if you shoot with the quiver on it would be difficult to turn on. I don't hunt with a quiver on, and typically don't use the light anyways.

    The sight seems pretty heavy. I haven't compared the weights to many sights but it is noticable. I think the ones without the micro adjust are like 3oz lighter if thats not a priority for you.

    I feel guilty about the weight, not that my bow is unbearably heavy, its still lighter than most, But I almost feel like I'm defeating the purpose of buying a Heli-M.

    Well we gave it a good effort men. Finishing in the top 10 it appears. This contest definitely made the season more fun for me. Not to mention I've learned a thing or two from you guys. Thanks again friends!
