TruGlo Tru-Lite XTreme LED Adjustable Sight Light
Great light. Poor switch.
I used this light in my PSE sight. It really lights up the fiber optic pins. I don't see the need for rheostat brightness control, as I always used it full bright.
Really bad thing is the switch. It does not have a positive stop or click so it will stay turned off. It turns very easily. Simply brushing against a pant leg or a twig will turn it on. More than once I found myself wanting to turn it on, and found the batteries were dead because something had brushed the light and turned it on.
The last time this happened was last weekend. I had to pass on a shot at a nice buck because the light was dead and I could not reliably see my pins. This light has just found its way into the trash. Too bad, too, 'cuz otherwise it works very well.
I'm going to try the "Apex Micro Push-Button Bow Sight Light." Has to be a better switch.

this is a good buy. was easy to install. the light doesn't seem to shine well on the pins that i had in the back row. it could have been because it was red. the other pins in the forward slot lit up great. the only thing i don't like about it is there isn't a postive stop to let you know that it's turned off.

good for shooting at low light
i use this for just shootin my target right before dark and its great, one downfall is that you have to keep turnin it on because when u go through a couple arrows itll get losse and fall off or just turn off

I like this product and i have switched it between a few different sights, and i find that it works well with the sights where the light goes into the fiber optic coil and not directly onto the pins. Its not that the pins are to bright, but that the direct light creates a glare when looking through a peep and that's what will drown out your target.
