I haven't used that sight before, but I have a Truglo on my bow and I love it. The small light helps out when it gets dark and is fun to shoot with it on.

I must agree with Big Red, the Copper John has the same basic design, but is more stable and the difference for adjustment, pin selection (.019, .029) is a big plus for any hunter, or casual archer. As for the light mentioned by cf, you can get a light for around 5 bucks to fit on the Copper John's, might need a slight thread tap, but any pro shop should be able and willing to do this no charge or problem. The round aperture for the sight makes it easier to square up in the peep sight, and ensure a clear, stable sight picture for better overall performance. As the sight you mentioned is around the 44.99 range, the Dead Nuts is only 15-20 more, has a great resale, and longer overall life. I think you should atleast look into the sight, can't tell you what to and not to shoot that is personal preference, but I think you will be pleased at the overall outlook, design, and ultimate performance of the Copper John.

yea but for around the same price I could buy the trophy ridge fire fox, or flat linner sight, but im not looking to spend that much $ on a bow sight that i only hunt with for a month outa a year when i could use tru-glo. I like the tru glo sights never had a problem with them

As I said, personal preference. I can attest to the fact that more hunters who are willing to spend the 50-60 range on a sight choose the Copper John over the Trophy Ridge and Flat liner..I still feel in the long run you would find an overall better performance, and find a higher recover/killing shot rate on longer shots with the Copper John..but again as I said personal preference..shoot what you are comfortable with, and what you feel you are going to be the most successful with in the prime time situations when the shot matters most.
