The TruGlo® tritium/fiber optic pin is perfect for all shooting conditions. When the light fades or the shadows make sighting too dark for the fiber optics, the Tritium works as a light source to boost light levels, increasing visibility. Machined-metal pin features a 3/16" base. Fits slotted pin sights.
The pin glows during the best hours. Before sun rise and after sunset. While my other pins can no longer be seen, this one shines bright. Only flaw is it doesn't shine in the day. But you can see it in the day anyway.

great in both low and bright light
I have a PSE RS Mini Tri-Glo sight on my Mathews Q2 set up as follows:
TruGlo T.F.O. tritium/fiber optic sight pin (3/16" square block):
20yd: .029" green
TruGlo ProWrap fiber optic sight pins (3/16" square block):
30yd: .019" red
40yd: .019" green
50yd: .019" red
60yd: .019" green
I had been using a plain tritium pin (not fiber optic) for years and loved it. Trouble is, it was hard to see the dot in broad daylight. The hybrid tritium/fiber optic pin solves that problem nicely. It is easy to see at both high noon and dawn/dusk.
I just wish they made the TFO pin in a wrapped-pin design, which I feel is better than the unwrapped (C-loop) design the TFO uses. Wrapped pins are less likely to catch a branch, etc. The good news is that the TFO pin has a tiny metal plate inside the C-loop, to help keep out the branches. Nonetheless, to be on the safe side, I keep a small homemade shroud/pouch around my sight window when I'm walking through the woods in the dark. (Can't shoot then, anyway.) My sight (like many other models) has 2 vertical tracks for pins, so I use only the rear one, to further decrease the chance of pin damage.
The biggest problem with this product is quality control: the brightnesses of the 3 pins I compared in a store were very different. I took the 3 packages off the shelf, then compared them by putting my head and 2 packages at a time inside the leg of a thick pair of dark, winter hunting pants, to create a mini-darkroom of sorts. One pin (the one I bought) glowed brightly, the 2nd was dim, and the 3rd was completely dead. Thus, my 4.0 rating applies only to the particular package I got. The others would have scored 2.0 and 0.0. Caveat emptor.

Could be better
There is one great benefit to the TFO pin, that is that it holds light very well in low light conditions. That being said however, it is not a great pin for hunters. I like a quick kill and that means a perfect shot. This pin only comes in .040" and that is just too big of a pin. If you shoot a 10-yard pin then maybe it is okay but if you are shooting 30+ yards then this pin will cover too much area of the target to get a good aim at the vitals. I think if they made it in smaller sizes then this would be a much better product.

I have been bow hunting for 32 years and have tried just about every bow sight out on the market. Several years ago I went to the tritum pin because the pin doesn't run on batteries and the other glow in the dark pins just didn't work. The first tritium pins was a little on the large size but today they're just the right size. The pin gives you just enough light to make the shot and will not over glow making the target hard to find as battery lights do. This is a great low light to dark pin perfect of hunting. I have taken many, many deer with this pin and have never had a pin break. If you want a very bright day sight pin this will not be for you but if you hunt deer. Perfect. Tip:Try using a c-peep as a hunting peep sight with the tritium pin great hunting combination . Good Hunting
