Ok, folks, now before we start I think we all should understand that the sight each hunter chooses to use on their bow is a personal choice, what works for one person may not be worth jack to someone else. Now having said that, if you shoot with anything other than a Spot Hogg sight you are missing out!
Do you want a sight that is durable? Do you want a sight that the manufacturer will stand behind? A sight with super bright pins? Than a sight from Spot Hogg might be the one for you!
I purchased the 5 – pin Real Deal sight, with the 2 3/8 inch guard, it comes with a horizontal level, and 0.029 pins, as well as a wire guide. This is another product in the archery world that doesn’t come cheap, but it will last you provided you take care of it. The average cost I found to be in the 130.00 to 140.00 range, though if you get on EBay, you might be able to find one cheaper.
All sights developed by Spot Hogg are made of 6061 aircraft aluminum, you don’t have to worry about these sights breaking on you, they are extremely durable.
The Real Deal 5 – pin sight weighs in at 6.4 oz. It provides you with a vertical and horizontal axis adjustments as well micro adjustments. To make your micro adjustments you will need a 1/16 allen wrench. Sighting your pins in can be a bit of a problem without the correct allen wrench, which is one of the problems I ran into. Another problem I ran into was the adjustment screws that control the second and fourth pins. I was unable to move the screws to adjust the pin level so I gave Spot Hogg a call and asked them about it.
They had a technician on the phone within seconds and he took all of 10 minutes to explain everything I needed to do. Since I was unable to move the screws for the second and fourth pins he advised me to take it to a pro shop to let someone else try adjusting the screws, if they were unable to do so, then I should ship the sight to them. When shipping a product, if you need it returned fast send it via overnight shipping. They will ship it back to you the same way it was delivered to them, I have yet to deal with a company who provided that type of customer service.
The technician also informed me that if they were unable to remove the screws then they would send me a new sight, free of charge, and that most work or repairs they will normally be completed the same day they receive your sight. So, if you are in a hurry, you could have your sight back on your bow and ready to shoot in no more than 3 days.
If you want the best sight around, I recommend the Spot Hogg sights. They provide the best customer service and really stand behind their product. It is a great sight, and I believe it will help make you a better shot.
