I wouldnt give a dang how my pins adjusted. After all, how much are you going to be moving them after the thing is sighted in?

IMO, go with the toxonics, 5 pins can be a little overbearing, I shot 5, then 3, now just plain ole 1.

Turn your caps lock of goober, we can hear you.

A wrapped fiber optic sight is bright enough to see during legal shooting light without the aid of a sight light . The more feet of fiber optic wrap around the sight , the more light gathering capability will have .

i use a cobra boomslang:

i dont need a light, has a good length of fibers, except i only use 1 pin, 2 if i am in more open for 30 yd shots. the other two i have taken off. i dont like the plastic pins on this sight as i thought they were made of thin aluminum like the rest of the sight but i havent had a problem yet.

if the sight you are looking at are similar to this one you shouldnt need a light. i have looked at the truglo and i think they are plenty bright, i dont know about the other though.

Thanks for the input on the light. The Toxonics have the spools of fiberoptic that are over 2' for each strand I think. This sight is very bright, has .029 pins, and the pins are made of metal and are very sturdy. It also has a thread to accept a light if needed. I can't find anyhwere listed what size light works.
