TruGlo Pendulum Sight
Really hated to give up my Kellar pendulum sight but I could no longer see the metal bead and this tru glo sight is lit up very nicely and have only target practiced with it so far but it performs very well.

DONT BUY IT
After looking at the mixed reviews i decided to buy it and I had them install it for me as well. Once i got home i started to sight it in and found that it was really easy and with the first few adjustments i was shooting a 2in group in the bulls eye at 15 yards. So then I went up into my stand from 25 yards away and unlocked the pendulum and my first shot missed the target completely and went low into the brush. so i adjusted it and shot again and the same thing happened.So I got a shooting block and set it at 15yards Both my arrows hit dead center then shot the 25 again and missed. After loosing 5 of my arrows i realized that the pendulum wasnt moving right. it gets stuck and doesnt swing fluently. I loosened the pendulum all the way and even took the knobb off and still it doesnt swing like it should. so I plan to take it off and return it and look elsewhere for a good sight. its good on the ground but why would you buy a pendulum for the ground. Its made for a Treestand. Its up to you but i lve talked to 3 other people and they have the same problem.

First off, I was slightly apprehensive about purchasing this sight based on the mixed reviews. I have used pendulum sights since I began bow hunting 15 years ago however Savage is no longer making the sight I use. I tried this one on my Bowtech and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised after hearing so much about pendulum sights not being effective with the newer speed bows. I began by shooting on flat ground at 20 yards with the pendulum locked in place. After sailing the first arrow into my privacy fence high and left, I made one adjustment simply following the sight to the placed arrow. Shot 2 was dead on so I didn't make any adjustments. The next 3 arrows hit inside a tennis ball size circle. I then moved up to the deck and unlocked the pendulum. At 17 yards, all 4 arrows hit inside the same tennis ball size circle. I can't shoot any farther than the 17 yards elevated due to yard restraints but i did move my target just a few steps from the deck to simulate a short, extremely angled shot and they were all dead on. Needless to say, I'm very pleased with this purchase. The light is also a nice feature that will come in handy in low light conditions. If your familiar with pendulum sights, you know to expect a little vibration noise due to the moving parts. It's definitely less noisy than my Savage but still has a little twang to it. I'll gladly take the slight noise over fussing with multiple pins any day. In the end, I'd highly recommend this sight! Would have been 5 stars if not for the slight noise.

Good but with limitations
I purchased this product about 2 months ago after buying a 3 pin sight that never worked quite right. I set it up for left handed shooters on my RECURVE BOW and zeroed it in at 15 yards with excellent results. Im talking 5 arrows in a tennis ball right off the bat. Well hundreds of arrows later im shooting and snap. The screw that keeps it from swinging freely sheered off completely. My guess is the recurve has too much viberation running thru the bow. Now shooting from the ground it swings freely and makes a huge racket. Im taking it back soon but Bass Pro is a little drive so we'll see. Best of luck.
