Truglo Brite-Site Xtreme 5-Pin .029" Sight W/Light Black

 Field Score   8.96 out of 10  

  • Large circular field of view
  • Aperture has a 2" inner diameter
  • Lightweight composite pin guard
  • Glow-in-the-dark shooter’s ring helps align peep sight
  • Level with two vertical bars
  • CNC machined
  • Adjustable for left and right handed shooters
  • Markings for elevation and windage
  • Tool-less design

 Hunter Quick Review:  The Tru Glo Brite-Site Xtreme is a 5 pin bow sight. Its pins light up for dawn to dusk shooting.

This is a decent starter sight that seems to work as advertised. Only running about $25, it is a good replacement option for the money when you have bought a packaged bow kit, and you want to economically upgrade for better bow sight performance. Sight seems to stay true, it attaches nicely, and is otherwise a good all around economical bow sight.

Be careful with any adjustment screws, go easy otherwise they can strip. If you have any issues with the lights flickering or going on and off, check the battery contacts. Siliconing in the level is not a bad idea either.

 Hunter Quick Review:  "Attention All Bowhunters... welcome to the technological age of bowhunting...."

The IQ Bowsights 5 Pin is probably the beginning of things to come. With its advanced technology Retina Lock, the archery hunter can now take their shooting to a new level. The Retina Lock is basically a "Smart Technology" that lets you know if you have changed something in how you are shooting, thus varying torque which will change point of impact. When used properly, the Retina Lock will consistently tighten your arrow groups.

When it comes to hunting in the field, what we like about the Retina Lock is when you are in a hunting situation it is often much different than shooting at a controlled practice range. It is very common for a shooter to be twisted all about trying to make a shot, and this usually means taking shots where sometimes your wrist torque may be different, or your anchor point may be off a little. The Retina Lock takes all this data into account and lets you know that you are out of normal form before you take the shot. It's a pretty amazing feature, and we can see the value in it for the more modern hunter.

The rest of the IQ Bowsights 5 Pin is made fairly well. The pins light up without batteries nicely during normal daylight, in low light levels somewhat. The construction is adequate, it attaches easily, and overall is a good bow sight.

But the real story here is the Retina Lock. And if it is used right, at under $115, the IQ Bowsights 5 Pin can't help but make you a much better, more consistent shooter both at the practice range, and in the field.

Tool Free Adjustments

100% Lifetime Warranty

FULLY PROTECTED FIBER A.R.M.O.R. Pin Technology is an indestructible, CNC machined aluminum pin guard that encapsulates the fiber optic on each and every Optimizer single pin adjustable sight

 Hunter Quick Review:  For those of you that like a single pin bowsight, the HHA Optimizer Lite 5519 is a great way to go, and at roughly $125, this is a lifetime bow sight purchase that should do you right for years to come.

The set up on the Optimizer is straightforward and based upon real math: sight in on your 20 and 60 yard pins (or 20/40), and then incorporate one of the pre printed sight tapes and you are in business on shots at 5 yard increments out to 80 yards.

The Optimizer is a solid, field simple bow sight. The single pin is highly visible, and gives you an unobstructed view downrange. The manufacturing of the Optimizer is well built and has very few parts to go wrong when you are out in it.

The Optimizer is a true bow purists bow sight. It is a great value for the money, and is ideally suited for the serious hunter looking for a no nonsense, field sturdy bow sight.

Trophy Ridge React 5 Pin Bow Sight

 Field Score   9.52 out of 10  

  • Ballistix Copolymer System is 24% Lighter than Aluminum but just as strong
  • Tool Less Micro Adjustment
  • Rheostat Light
  • Built in Sight Level
  • .019 Fiber Optic Pins
  • Ballistix CoPolymer System
  • Reversible Sight Mount 

Hunter Quick Review: In our opinion, the Trophy Ridge React 5 pin is one of the best bow sights currently available. And although the price may be higher than many other bow sights, at around $140, it is well worth every penny.

The build on the React is robust, you are going to have to work overtime to break this sight. Whoever did the design engineering on the React did their homework, and it shows.

The Smart Pin Technology is a real nice way to go. Set the first 2 pins as instructed, and the rest of the yardage pins should be dead on target (as long as your arrow is traveling over 240 fps). The pins light up brilliantly - nice fiber optics. Line of sight view on the React allows for a generous sight picture while aiming at game.

This is a great bow sight set up. And again, if there are problems or questions, the customer service at Trophy Ridge is top-notch.
