TruGlo® Pendulum Sight
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.

A litle tight to swing at first, some grafite took care of that. onced set it was acurate to 27-30 yds., then it shoots low.overall easy to use and set. The pin broke on trhe first one i had,liked it enough to get a second one.

Just what my husband was looking for.
My husband bought three bow sights this year...all rather pricy, none came close to what he really wanted until he received this TruGlo Pendulum Sight from Bass Pro - Everytime he gets in the house from shooting his bow he comments on how much he likes this new sight. The others are gonna collect dust while this one collects trophies. Thank you! ~ mmers
