CXB,This Truglo Halo sight has no magnification ,same Truglo sight described with pictures on the Excalibur discussion pages.SPECIALIZED said:I just received a new Truglo halo sight that I ordered at the request of a friend. The sight appears to be well made for the price. It has the illumated choice of red or green and multi reticles. Did not get a chance to shoot with the Truglo. However I did notice that at dusk and twilight,even set at the low setting of illumination there was a lot of glare on the glass that you use to sight.
This glare was enough to block out my target ,even though The target could be seen with the naked eye.
The Truglo Halo has no magnification.See the Truglo halo sight at Excalibur discussion pages.CXB said:I have a Tenpoint Proview x 3 and have had problems with it glare problems with it when it is lite at low light situations ! They replaceit at no charge and it is alittle better but is still a problem ! Thunderbolt is that Tru-Glo scope the one with 4 pins and it is 4 or 5 power ? How do you like it ! Give me some feedback I'm all ears !
12 years ago … and to his credit, Moon had the same philosophy about optics. Evidently he may have been born that way...lolIt depends on what's most important to you
Magnification? Weight savings? Your age (visual accuity)? Illumination? Quick target acquisition? Price/quality? Just like crossbows, there's no one best sight or scope for everyone. As an example, weight saving and quick target acquisition in very low light conditions are most important for me so I don't use any heavier scopes with magnification. Crossbows are already too heavy and IMHO magnification for a 15 yard shot in very low light conditions is useless. But again, there are many that will not agree with that. Try a scope like some of the folks are recommending here and then try a non-magnifying red dot reflex sight so you can decide for yourself. It's up to you...........not what I or others say is the "best".:hurray:
