    Fixed pin, multi pin or adjustable pin, electronic bow sights??? So many choices.
    I am changing to an adjustable single point bow sight by Vital Gear. It is a combination of the two pictures shown. It is a crosshair style bow sight with the fiberoptic yardage markers. I will let you guys know how it works out.

    I received the bow sight and it is super bright. The lever style sighting system works flawlessly and by moving the lever to any of the illuminated 10,20,30,40,50 and 60 yard settings, I can hit the target. The 10-30 yard grouping is really tight. The 40-60 yard grouping is open a bit, but I believe that is all my eyesight at that distance.

    Africa...are there other continents to hunt?
    Would you recommend it to others? I'm actually starting to look for one now.

    Hi Tom,
    I am eye sight challenged and I never liked the multi pin systems. Too many things to look at. I picked up a bowsght that my friend had with a cross hair reticle and adjustment know for range and I couldn't miss with his bow. I just dialed ithe distance in and I was on target. When I went to buy one like his, I couldn't find the model. It seems as if the company dropped the crosshair and just made a single pin.
    My sight is a new product from "vitalgear" and is not shown on the website. It is a combination of the "Star Track Model and the Hollow Pino Model. It is available in a "no peep" version, but I opted to use my existing peep sight.
    The sight is very bright.

    Looks like a good sight.

    If you shoot accurate with the sight at your hunting distances then it works for you...
