I have a PSE F 16. I like the sight but somehow I keep breaking the fiber optics on the pins. I thought maybe they got caught on a stick or something, so I bought new pins. They worked fine I switched it to my mission bow and the same thing has happened again. I haven't dropped my case or anything like that, and as for vibration it has happened on 2 bows. and my Mission bow doesn't have much vibration at all.
So I got $100 for x-mas for bass pro and want a new sight.
Any suggestions?

thanks
Copper

I bought an Impact Archery collector. It is a 3 pin, but they have one in 5 pins as well. It is arguably the brightest sight on the market, has the fiber optics run through the center of a metal pin, a clear plastic housing, and they have OUTSTANDING customer support.

I had a problem mounting a light to it and they sent me a whole new sight - I wrote a post about it a while ago.

I would recommend their products to anybody and can tell you that you can't beat them for standing behind their product.

I have a little story for the sights I use. I am using a Black Gold Radiant Sight. The tree stand I was hunting from the only way to get to it without spooking the deer was through a cornfield. I had to walk down a row of corn to get to the treestand which the total walk through the field was about 100 yards or more. With that said I had stalks, weeds, and tassles hitting my bow and sights. I never had one problem with my fiber optic breaking because they are encased in a transparent housing. The sight is
bright as can be and they make them in 4 pin sights.

There are some comments and testimonials on their website here it is
www.blackgoldsights.com

I love this sight setup. I'm buying a new bow and I'm going to put these sights on the new bow.

I've got one of those Trophy Ridge Micro Matrix and the Hindsight. This has helped my low light shooting immensely.

I have a Trophy Ridge matrix and the brightness o fthe pins in low light is incredible. This sight is very bright when it is so dark that i am not comfortable taking a shot {dont want to lose a deer because i cant see where it ran to}. I also love the verticle pins {.019 pins} and i thought I would hate this new style of sight, I love it. Woody

I think the trophy ridge matrix is the one I am considering. I like the idea of the pins being straight. And they sell it at bass pro.

I like my savage pendulum, it takes the guess work out of distance to 35yds.

Tom ,
I like the thought of a pendulum, but I am trying to leave out the human error of puttting it at the wrong yardage. Although even with pins I don't see myself shooting over 40 yards at an animal. And hopefully next season I will get my first animal, I know there is a hundred things that can go wrong I don't need to add anymore.

Thanks Luke, I've done the research and I'm sold on the BLACK GOLD. Nothing but rave reviews and a guarantee that's second to none.
