TruGlo® Tru-Site Xtreme Bow Sights are a lightweight composite pin guard that comes complete with extra-long, protected and wrapped fibers, five .029'' fiber-optic pins aligned on the same plane to eliminate distortion, a large round circular field of vision, and an aperture that has a 2'' inner diameter. The glow-in-the-dark shooter's ring helps align the peep sight. Can be used for right or left handed bow.

Great sight. All of it is made of metal except the cover for the optics. The Triditum loaded sights are bright and the glow in the dark ring is strong. The buble level is green, would have liked to gotten the red one like in the picture but it still is great. And I recieved five pins, you cant beat that. This sight has great markings for adjustments and is left or right handed. I feel like I purchased a 60 to 70 dollar sight for half the price. What a steal!!!! A must buy

Rated 5 out of 5 by CDUDE Great sight for the $$$$
I was looking into a new sight and this was one of my top contendors in the middle of my price range and some buddies insisted I get the Truglo instead of brand X,Y,Z. Well.. I did and love it lol. The pins are bright even without the light and very easy to sight in. The only time I really have to use the light is in a blind. Seems very durable (haven't dropped it or nothing and don't plan to test it), and very well built. Will see how long it last and if it looks as good as it seems I will buy Truglo again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mGreen great sight for the money!
First sight i've every owned. If your kinda tight on money after a new bow purchase this is a great sight to start with. I blew all my money on a bow and arrows, with little funds left I bought this sight and it has been great. I have to say the pins do start to look a bit big at 30 yards or more, but if your sighting in and just starting to shoot this is a great bow sight at 20 or even 30 yards. The pins are extremely bright and pick up every bit of light. Great purchase for the money!

Looks like you can remove them, but you would have to take the sight apart. If you wasn't planning on using the pin in the future you can just cut the fiber optic tube and take the allen screw out of pin and it would be off in less than a minute.
The easiest way to do that would be to just switch out the entire pin housing. it would take a good amount of work to pull out the fiber optics and then put the .019 fiber optics into the proper holes. that being said, it is possible to switch them out.
Would recomend only sighting in 20,30 and 40 and would probably slide the last 2 pins all the way down. Taking a shot longer than 40 you are more than likely going to just wound an animal or have a long time before you can start tracking. I have always been told the pin colors were just for quick yardage aquisition.
Its all about your preference, I set my sight for 20,30,40,50,60 yards,for some people 3 or four pins is enough.Yes each pin(fiber) must be adjusted to your bow. As far as the colors go not really sure other than the fact it offers you quick identification between the different yardage settings. If they were all the same color this might take a while to distinguish. That could be the difference between your animal on the ground or watching it fade in the distance.
ADV: is to be able to see your pins later in the evening or early morning. DIS: Have to check local law to see if light is legal to hunt with. make sure to tight light down with pilers vibration will cause them to come loose and fall off.
The way the light is set on this sight is great. It shines into the pin housing bracket which contains the beams of the light yet still gives full effect on the fiber optics. If you have a slight glare coming through, take a peice of camo or black tape and cover the small area by the level where the light shines through. This will have no effect on the brightness of the pins.
