Bow sight?

HHA optimizer elite is a awesome sight. Stay away from the g5 with the floater pins unless they have change since I last shot them. 2c

The best I have found are the Montana Black Gold. I've got a 5 pin with the ascent mount and I would definitely get another one. The fiber is super bright and very solid.

HHA Single Pin slider.

Works great and it looks nice on the HeliM... wink

I do alot af target shooting, 3D's and long distance shooting, so I wanted alot of adjustability.

When hunting I pretty much leave it set to 27 yards and with the Helim I shoot I am good from 10-35 yards with only a couple of inches of variance.

So many great sights available! I'd pick one that has tooless adjustment, wrapped fiber optic, protected pins, and accepts a light (if you do much blind hunting.) I'm a long time HHA user myself, but there are several other manufactures that have great sights I'd be proud to own. Determine how many pins you want, diameter, cost, etc and start your search.

Sights are so subjective, its hard to choose based on opinions of posters. There are many great sight companies, and many different configurations, and options for wrapped pins, etc. Currently I am shooting a 7-pin SpotHogg that I custom selected pin size, color and configuration (and it accepts a variable power sight light that I occasionally use). I have no complaints.

If I were buying today, I'd maybe look into the IQ sight(s). I like the concept and idea of eliminating torque and peep reliance. Otherwise, I like the SpotHogg.

I love my IQ sight because I can shoot without a peep. Hate the peep!

Without a peep installed I can shoot in any light and don't have to worry about peep rotation or a rubber band aimed at my eye.

I have the Montana black gold redzone hd and I can say it is the best sight I have ever owned.brightest pins out there never need a light with this sight plus excellent customer service with lifetime warranty.

I had a Montana Black Gold several years ago and the pins would strip out if I tightened them too much. If I didn't tighten them, the pin would eventually work loose. I called them and all they would tell me is not to tighten them too much. I ended up throwing it in the garbage and bought a Tru Glo and haven't looked back.

      Hi there, I am making sure that this is the location that folks will be posting updates for Ice Fishing on Lake Vermilion this winter (2022).  I think so but want to make sure as I plan on trying to get out next weekend, December 8-11.
    • smurfy
      thanks wanderer.......even reports from lakes like leech gives me a pretty good idea of what the lakes i want to fish will be like. lot of past experience helps, and no doubt wheelers will be used soon.    we had a retiree.holiday union party last night. buddy said that his kid was on little Winnie with about 5 inches of ice and there moving all around the lake!!
    • Wanderer
      Leech lake has been 100% capped for about a week, I think.  Before you say that’s not a small, underfished lake, it’s just an example that you could prolly drive wheelers on your kind of lakes by now. 😉   I’ve been seeing a lot of 5-7 inch reports going into the weekend.  Sadly I haven’t cut a hole yet.  Still working on repairs and updates on our houses.
    • leech~~
      Here's some throw back for yea. Lets your candy azzz E-cutter battery do this!  🤣

      Oh I didn't say I don't own several versions of Teslas, just that until this hell frozen over state changes I'll always find a use for the ice diggin' anchor. Will be a great post hole digger in it's next life use too
    • leech~~
      Yep no puzzy Tesla auger for me until they pry it from my dead hands!  😆

      Still waiting for global warming to ditch my Lazer Mag, always in the truck for thick, virgin ice.    Don't know if it's possible, or advisable, but thought I would throw a 8" K drill bit on it to lighten it up. Should be an adapter for such a conversion. Careful what you wish for, probably rip my arm off with a shredding combo like that 😂

      Leech I still have my old jiffy gas auger mainly for sentimental reasons. I haven’t used it for 3 years now. The only time I start it up is in the garage just to hear that pop pop pop sound lol   I will never go back and have no regrets going electric. Huge weight saver and with an extension will go through any thickness of ice. Starts first pull every time lol    we were fishing 2 weeks ago Swiss cheesing a slough here in SD on 4” of ice when someone else tried to fire up their gas auger and my buddies and I looked at each other almost in disbelief that someone was still using a gas auger.   pros and cons for sure but I think electric has more pros than cons with advancements lately     
    • smurfy
      any ice thickness reports..........especially on smaller not heavily fished lakes???????   chances are i wont be up till after christmas anyway, but............
    • leech~~
      Let me know when you go again.  I'll being my crossbow and take out the Deer when you kick them up!  😁
