Rated 4 out of 5 by alpinearcher like the design
Like the vertical pins. No complaints on design. Beware though, no rheostat light included. Description should say whether light is included or not. For the expensive price....light should be included. Other less expensive trophy ridge sights include light. Makes no sense.

I brought the Alpha V5 back after the Fire wire V5 broke that I just purchased. This sight is like night and day. Excellent design and construction! Trophy Ridge has a winner here.

I purchased this sight to try the inline pins. After researching the sight I felt confident that it would be well made and come with a decent guarantee. So far I was right. It is bright, solid, and the pin adjustments are easy to make. I bought the 5 pin model and have it at 10,20,30 etc. For my bow ( a Diamond Kronik set at 65 lbs) I would have liked a little more headroom for my 50 yard pin adjustment, but have made it work. I am left handed and had to order it from the catalog because the store did not stock it in left hand model. I will use it this year to hunt and hope it holds up well to the rigors of tree climbing and stalking.

I am seriously considering changing my bow sight for the upcoming deer season. In the opinion of those who use this Trophy Ridge sight, what are the advantages of this sight over a horizontal sight (which I currently use)? Any information would be helpful, as I am greatly interested in this sight, but would like to hear some more about it before making such an expensive purchase.
The vertical pins allow for less obstruction of the object your aiming at...such as a deer. More light in transmitted and makes it easier to see. You can also fine tune your elevations of each pin individually to a very fine scale, fractions of an inch. Everyone I know that shoots inline pins, won't go back to horizontals...Im one of them.
My experience with this vertical style is it's easy to get on your target and see the animals full body weather it be foam or live. Just put the yardage pin you want on your spot and let it go. Good luck in your choice.
