Anyone know if anybody fixes broken fiber optic spools on sights? I love this one for Bear hunting in dark places. The fibers have cracked over the years. Thanks for the help.

You can buy fibers several places online and replace it yourself. You need to know how long and diameter. Google is your friend. What sight is it?
I helped a buddy repair his. It was amazingly easy.
Used to be a place to order called fitzfiber. Lots of options with them.
I'm traveling, I'll look when I get home.
I tried doing it myself, cracked the fiber way to easy.
Brands won't matter either, i was told from Spot Hogg that there are only 2-3 manufacturers of the fibre. When you melt the end, heat something metal, even a lighter surround will do, and touch the fibre, if you use the flame it will burn a lot more and it won't be straight at the end
I just recently bought fiber from a guy on ebay for my Sure Loc. He sells it in various lengths/diameters and priced accordingly. Many colors available. If you don't get anywhere with this and need, let me know I will get you his ebay information. Its really easy stuff to work with, just don't want to bend it too harshly.
I've got it at Lancaster Archery.
