  • Which sight for my GT500?

    I need a new sight for my GT500. I had a TruGlo Tru Site Xtreme Micro Tool Less, (which worked fine with a drop down bracket) but I want a sliding dovetail / detachable bracket type of sight. I bought a TruGlo Super Slam, sent it back to TruGlo, had them install 2 more pins (7 total). The sight will not go far enough to the left, nor will it go down far enough. I tried a drop bracket, which helped the elevation issue, but now it really is too far to the right. This sight is useless to me now. I want a sight with enough vertical and horizontal adjustment and at least a 2" sight housing. I'm thinking A) Hogg It, or, B) Extreme Bone Collector 1400. I'm confident I can get the Hogg It to work with a drop bracket and an additional spacer bar if necessary. Anyone use these sights on an '09 GT500?

    The Viper Predator Micro Tune and the Axcel Armortech Pro both look interesting, but their housings are only 1 3/4".

      I thought about the Sword 3rd Plane, but I've heard the pins aren't bright at all. It looks like a lot of bang for the buck, though.

        CBE makes are great target/hunting sight. I love my Tek Target and .19 pin scope.

          I was just checking out the CBE Tek Hunter XL. Looks interesting too. I can't find any info on what the sight housing diameter is though.

            I switched to the scope so I can't help you there.

              I have a Viper Predator Pro 2000 with micro adjust on my Hunter.

                Problem solved

                I've solved the sight problem for my GT500. I got a Hogg It sight and a Spot Hogg drop mount bracket. It goes low enough and has enough horizontal adjustment as well.

                    Sometimes you have to use a drop down bracket to get your sight low enough. My new Hogg It with the drop bracket works perfectly on my '09 GT500.

                          While installing a sun shade on my Hogg It today, I noticed that the sight is adjusted almost all the way down (with a drop bracket too). Hmmmm.....
                          I think I'm going to get a Sword Trident Hunter with the dovetail bracket for my GT500. I can put the Hogg on another one of my bows. The Trident Hunter has lots of vertical adjustment and a high / low mount already built in..... it should be perfect for my GT.

                          Anyone using a Sword Trident Hunter?

                            What is your draw length and how high is your peep from your nock point?

                            I've not had a problem with any sight I've tried thus far on '08.5-'10 GTs that I've tried.

                              28" draw, 5 1/4". I just checked, and it's 5 1/2" on my Guardian... maybe I should move the peep up a quarter of an inch.
