The Best New Bowsights for 2014

Sights can be somewhat of an afterthought for many of us. This holds especially true for diehard whitetail hunters who tend to count on close-range shots. There's nothing wrong with not doting over your sight choice or being overly concerned with the little details sight-wise, until, of course, something goes wrong.

We expect our sights to function as advertised, and to be able to withstand run-of-the-mill abuse. However, when they don't hold up, our sights become much more critical than we may have thought. For many bowhunters, a bow without a sight is just a club.

To ensure that these in-the-field malfunctions are rare, sight manufacturers have put some serious design time into pin wraps and guards to protect the most fragile element of your bow setup — the sight pin. Consequently, broken pins are uncommon these days.

Sight makers are also offering products that are lighter and tougher than ever due to space-age materials, and they've addressed some of the issues with mounting quivers tight to our bows to reduce canting. Some have even created platforms for personal customization where you can choose multiple pin sizes and configurations, as well as finish options and even custom colors.

Still, the most important feature of any sight is being able to trust that when you pull up to make the shot, the pins will be intact and in the correct position. That peace of mind is priceless.

Following are the 2014 industry-leading sights brought to you by manufacturers who are all well aware of what bowhunters demand from their aiming accessories.
