Trophy Ridge Fire Wire V5 Bow Sight
This is my third year using this sight. It has been outstanding since day one. The vertical pins provide an excellent sight picture, and they are bright in low light. If you need brighter pins you can easily add a light. The windage and elevation adjustments are fairly straight forward with a hex wrench, which is like most other sights. What sets this sight apart, and what was a deciding factor in going with this sight, is the micro adjustment to each pin. Many sights have individual pin adjustment with a hex screw that slides up and down in a slot. Trying to make small adjustments to a pin in this fashion is hit or miss at best. Been there, done that, wasn't fun. The Fire Wire V5 has hex keyed micro adjustments on the underside of the sight that raise and lower each pin in small increments. It really enables you to dial it in. Since installing this sight I have sheared off more fletching, busted more nocks, and literally "robin hooded" more arrows than with any other sight. I also like the sight picture the Fire Wire V5 provides. It's a little more compact and gives a true circle inside a circle view with my 1/4" peep sight. I prefer that (in addition to the green level on the sight) because it gives me a visual reference to any cambering of the bow. It's a great sight. Hard to beat for the money.

Has Some Faults
First off, let me say that I am a hardcore believer in Trophy Ridge products. I have used them for a while and will continue to do so, because of their customer service. I have shot post-style sights for a while and this one fits the bill perfectly for that. Upon sighting this in, while making an adjustment the captive bolt that adjusts the sight vertically just snapped right in two. I was barely applying any pressure and the sight was brand new. I called trophy ridge after my 30 day window and they still replaced the entire sight. The 2nd one I received so far is holding strong and I killed an 8 pointer with it on my bow the last week of season.
