Wow, I have broken pins.. but never the sight. I have a copper John DeadNuts Pro Series, and wouldnt trade it for anything!.. Simply the best sight for the money in my opinion!

I don't understand how you can be breaking sights like that? confused.gif If you are that hard on your equipment that things are breaking how can you expect your equipment to perform for you in the field? Need to keep sights sighted in! Knocking stuff around doesn't help with that! I have a sidewinder by Cobra and have absolutly no problems with it. If you just broke a fiber pin, they do sell replacements for about $10 if I recall. And if you have broken two this quickly, I'm sorry but I have to blame the operator. Cobra makes a quality product.

That was exactly the reason I did not purchase the sidewinder sight, the fiber optics are too exposed. If you do any stalking through the woods, there is a good chance you will snag one and break it. Otherwise, the sight is fantastic. I went with a true glow sight that has the fiber optics completely protected. Just my opinion!

I think you would have to hit something pretty darn hard (hard enough that I can't imagine hitting my bow on something that hard) to break the cover over the fiber and damage the fiber. Maybe I'm just not tough enough on my equipment.

yes i hate admitting that it was my fault for breaking them. the cobra bantam sight simply cracked but the cobra was indeed snagged on a twig when i picked it up breaking thefiber cable just outside the gaurd before it hooks to the pin. i was looking at cobra viper sights. any body have any experience with this model?

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.

      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline.

      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.

      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?

      We were up this past weekend.  We got cold but did ok.  We caught around 40 walleye.  Most were 12-14" a handful of 14-16".  Good activity and a full fry pan, but no bigger fish.  Frazer and Smarts bays.  All Jig and minnow.  Mornings we found them at 24-26 FOW.  Evenings in 7-10 FOW.  Water temp was 50-52.

      Was out the last 2 days. Saw some Crappies caught in warmer bays. Not much action outside the mouths of bays today. Hoping it picks up this week. Trying to learn this lake over the summer.
