A Sight To Behold

A Sight To Behold

There are a lot of great hunting sights on the market, but I'd put TruGlo's new Micro-Brite among the best. The Micro-Brite includes all the features you'd expect from a top-end sight -- plus sharp looks and thoughtful engineering that take functionality to the next level.

The Micro-Brite offers micro adjustability for windage and elevation similar to other sights, but the adjustment knobs click as you turn them for superior precision, while main bracket tension is controlled with easy-to-operate thumb levers for true tool-less operation.


I put the 5-pin Micro-Brite on my Bowtech Admiral and was able to sight in at 20 and 30 yards in less than 15 minutes. The sturdy aluminum housing added no noticeable noise or vibration to my setup and features long, fully protected hanks of green fiber that are threaded through the metal pins to avoid any exposure to the elements.



Another cool feature is TruGlo's patented pin design that steps down the size of the aiming point at longer ranges to reduce target obstruction. For example, the Micro-Brite I tested features a .029-inch top pin, followed by two .019-inch pins and two .010 pins. A 5-pin model with all .010-inch pins also is available, as is a 3-pin model with .029-, .019- and .010-inch pins.

An optional quick-detach mounting bracket allows users to adjust the distance between the riser and sight. Other notable features include a luminescent ring around the 1.8-inch round shooting aperture, an adjustable bubble level and an ultra bright blue light that directs its energy right into the fiber without creating visible glare in the sight housing.
