I am split between two types of sights. The Tru Glo has a light, but it has five pins that are very tight together. The Toxonics sight is very bright with three sturdy pins spaced a bigger distance apart. It appears there is threading on the Toxonics to add a light, but not sure if the lights on the market are universal.

Can I get by with sights that do not include a light?

You do not need a light at all. I have never needed one. You can't go by the pins being spaced farther apart on the sight now. You will have to adjust them to the bow. If you like the tru glo you may be able to take a couple pins out if you just want three.

So I can space those .019 pins farther apart on the Tru Glo?

TheAirMan Is correct. It depends on how fast your bow is.if it is a really fast bow and have pins set for 20 30and40 yards you will have less space between them than if you had a slow bow. what Im trying to say is the slower the bow the more distance you will have between your pins,the faster the bow you will have less distance between them.
hope I am clear about this!

You will not need a light if you buy a good sight.

As far as the light, I think it would be pretty cool to have one!

That is the thing. The light is a cool feature, but kicks up the price a bit on some sights. The Toxonics sight doesn't have a light feature but they are bright.

Tru glo or toxonics is what will be on my bow next.
I guess with the right sight there is no need for a light but just always thought it would be cool to have. I would probaly never use it when hunting anyway,I would probaly just forget I had it when a deer comes by!

Also, some lights that shine directly on the pins can cause glare and you can see the pins but you can't see past them. You might not be able to see the deer to aim if you got the light on. A light would probably be the last feature I would think about when choosing a sight.

I have heard about sights being too bright. The Toxonics sight is very bright without the light. It doesn't have the micro adjust feature.
