Best New Bow Sights for 2015

Best New Bow Sights for 2015

Single-pin or multi-pin? Not sure what you need? Check out the tips in this From the Stand segment from NAW TV to help you find the right bow sight for you.


Despite the fact that it usually lacks the popular attention of a newly released compound bow or crossbow, the bow sight is undeniably an indispensable part of the bowhunter's rig. After all, it's not always the biggest piece of gear that plays the most influential role for when chasing whitetails with a bow.


Check out the hottest new bow sights for the year:

Apex Gear | Covert Pro

The electronic dot Covert Pro has 11 brightness settings, so finding the perfect one is easy — including at first and last light. The green dot sight has a pre-marked yardage tape and a gravity line rotational adjustment, which is handy on steeply angled shots.

Price: $199.99

Archer Xtreme | Ronin

The Ronin is super accurate and tough, thanks to Center Core pins that run through the metal pins instead of along the outside. Micro-adjustable windage and elevation adjustments help you split hairs in no time. Stainless steel hardware and a rail-locking system make the setup extra strong. The Ronin is available with 5 pins.

Price: $169.99

Axion | Shift

Axion Archery is known for products that are pleasing to the eye and user friendly. The new Shift measures up in both ways. This single-pin movable sight can be oriented left, right, up or down, and a lens can be used in conjunction with it. The sight also has a light and a level and offers 3rd-axis adjustment.

Price: $139.99

Black Gold | Revenge

The PhotoChromatic shell of the Revenge reportedly is 80 percent tougher than on earlier models and turns color more quickly, so the pins are always just the right brightness. Skycoil technology also boosts pin brightness. Plus, the sight has 2nd- and 3rd-axis adjustments, micro-adjustable pins and an interchangeable fluorescent guard ring. Choose 5 or 7 pins.

Price: $239.95

Fuse | Helix Slider

Single-pin sights are more popular than ever, due to their large field of view and wide yardage flexibility. The Helix Slider's yardage adjustment is at the rear, so it's quick and easy to use. The bundled fiber optic means an extremely bright pin. The housing's stealth band reduces noise and vibration. Other features include a light and 3rd-axis adjustment.

Price: $79.99

G5 | XR2

Many bowhunters use only one pin, but having two offers extra versatility. In addition to a fixed pin, the XR2 has one that's movable. It can be dialed in down to the yard, using a large adjustment knob. This 6-ounce sight is made of magnesium alloy, offers 3rd-axis tuning and has a Mathews Harmonic Damper.

Price: $165

HHA | King Pin

Sight in at 20 and 60 yards and you're dialed in, yard for yard, out all the way to 100. A mechanical rheostat lets you quickly adjust the pin brightness of the 5 feet of wrapped fiber. The King Pin also features a sight tape magnifier, so the pin can be adjusted in 1/4-yard increments. A built-in Mathews Harmonic Damper destroys vibration.

Price: $349.99

Field Logic | Ultra Light IQ

The popular IQ now is made of a lighter polymer and has a silent-coat finish, making it extra quiet even if it touches a branch or the inside of your blind. Retina Lock Technology tells you when you're centered and aiming perfectly and lets you know if your bow is torqued. The IQ is available as a 3- or 5-pin model.

Price: $109

Trophy Ridge | React Trio

For the shooter wanting a 'hybrid ' sight, the React Trio is a neat combo: a pair of fixed pins and a single rover. The rover can be set all the way out to 120 yards. You can make 2nd- and 3rd-axis adjustments, and there's a rheostat light.

Price: $242.52

Schaffer | Opposition Air

Cutting weight is a plus, especially in the backcountry. This sight tips the scales at only 4 ounces, making it one of the lightest on the market. The Opposition Air is made of 7075 aluminum and has steel pins that are nearly indestructible. Mathews Spider Claw Technology lets you quickly attach/detach without affecting accuracy.

Price: $159.54

Spot Hogg | Fast Eddie

The latest version of the Fast Eddie is 20 percent lighter than previous models, but it continues to offer many useful features. It has a double pin scope, 2nd- and 3rd-axis adjustments and bulletproof pin technology, so the pins won't break in the field. There's also a quick-release knob for yardage adjustments. All adjustments are toolless.

Price: $184.99

Trijicon | Accupin

The unique single-pin Accupin sight is built to be tough and accurate, even on really long shots. There are nylon patches on all adjustment screws, so tweaks are quick and easy. AccuDial and Bowsync technology allow for accurate yardage readings out to 80 yards. Each yard marker is laser-etched into the dial. The Accupin has both both tritium and fiber optics.

Price: $443

Trophy Taker | Option

The Option lets you use a standard pin setup — or rotate the multi-pin housing out of the way and go with the single movable pin. If need be, you can quickly switch back. Magnets hold the fixed-in housing in the closed position.

Price: $349
