TruGlo Tritium/Fiber Optic Pin
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

Glows in the dark!!!
I have been using Tritium pins for years now and there is nothing better!! I have tried using sights with lights but you cannot see the deer behind the light when the light is on.
The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is because the Tritium pins are VERY Fragile . I have broken a few hunting and I accidentally broke one just installing it on my sight.
With that said.. I still use them because nothing else works nearly as well.

I have probably owned every lit pin ever made plus tried all the light gathering sights but I always come back to this pin. I feel something that is often overlooked is that too bright a pin can interfere with seeing your target behind the pin. This pin has a glo that lets you see it and what is behing it. No batteries. Good for years.
