Sight picture: you just can’t beat the single vertical pin. There’s no clutter and it really helps you see a broadside animal. Winner: hogg father
Brightness: All of the sights have .10 pins. The cbe jump out at you! Man they are bright. I wouldn’t call the hogg father dim, but it’s hard to beat the brightness of the cbe.
Weight: If you run out of arrows and you need to dispatch an animal, the hogg father can be removed from the bow and used as a club. Winner: cbe
Durability: It’s hard to judge durability, but I know the hogg father is bullet proof. I’ve dropped it on the sight straight on the pavement with no damage. The added weight has to give you added strength. Winner: hogg father
Functionality: The cbe looks cool! It has knobs and levers all over the place. The micro adjustability is there for both sights. One thing I never liked about the hogg father is when you engage the “lock” on the lever below the wheel, there is an audible click. You can shoot without it engaged but it’ll move AFTER the shot. Meaning, a follow up shot would need to have the yardage confirmed. Winner: cbe
Hunting usage: Personal preference of course, but having the cbe 3 pin sighted in at 30/40/50 yards allows me to hunt elk without moving the sight until I get to around 55 yards. I’m 4” high at 18 yards using my 30 yard pin. With the spot hogg I set it at 30 and my second pin was 43 yards. At this point it might be picking fly crap out of chili. Winner: cbe
All in all, I’m impressed with both sights. The single pin cbe would make a killer 3d rig or a hunting rig. I ran a single pin for a long time set at 30 yards. I really like the sight picture on the hogg father double pin. I’m undecided which way I’m going to go this year. It’ll be hard to give up the hogg father.
If anybody is looking for a quality slider sight, shoot me a PM, I’ll need to start selling some of these!
