Trophy Ridge Cypher 5-Pin Bow Sights
I recently bought the cypher and am impressed with the light gathering capability of fibr optics. You really don't need the light to see the pins in legal shooting times. The hood is abit to large. I can't quite see ring in ring that I would like. Over all it is an excellent sight. I would recommend it ot my friends.

Just picked up some new accessories for a bare bow I grabbed off craigslist.
Debated between this and the "react" site, figured for 1/2 the price I could sight-in the other pins on my own. Glad I made the decision to go that route, this thing is awesome!
Pins are incredibly bright, makes me wish I had replaced my old bow's sight when I still had it. Unit itself is VERY lightweight, that was the first thing I noticed. Installed in seconds, pins adjust with a simple allen bolt. I didnt even realize it but the outer ring has a glow in the dark surface that may be useful. Sight also comes with a light you can attach but I dont think I'll use that option. If its dark enough I cant see my pins normally than it's past legal shooting time anyhow in my state.
overall this thing has been a treat and its made sighting in my new bow actually fun and easy. I dont know that the sight that costs 2x as much could really be that much different or better, and I'm not taking this thing off my bow to find out. PRice is right and the functionality is more than enough for this guy. I'd give it a shot if you're considering it, put the money you save into one of the other items you're looking at (there's always another thing you need/want for hunting season!).

Easy to adjust. Best value for the money. Was looking at the Trophy Ridge React, but could not justify the $149.00 price tag as compared to the 79.00 price tag on the Cypher 5. The fiber optics are bright and the intensity can be adjusted. I like having my sights mounted further away from the riser and with the multple mounting holes this is possible using this sight. it's simple, it's functional, and it doesn't cost an excessive amount of money.

Its amazing what a quality sight can do. It has improved my accuracy two times better than what I was shooting with a cheap Tru Glo. Not bashing Tru Glo at all though. I love the .019" pins. Alot better than my old ones, the .029". The tool less windage and elevation adjustments are a great feature. Super bright pins in low light, and a great florescent light to help.
