Just put the new Cobra Sidewinder LX on my bow. I love this site. Pins are super bright, Microadjustments are extremely simple compared to other sites I've used. The dovetail was a major selling point for me. It can be moved closer or farther away from your eye to suit your liking. Also being able to take the site off the bow for travel is a plus. Does anyone know if Cobra makes extra pins that will fit this model?

Quite often Tru-Glo pins fit almost every site out there. The reason is they make fiber optic pins for almost every site manufacturer out there.

Walmart tends to clearance their bow stuff shortly after bow season goes out. You might be able to pick up spares by buying a whole extra site cheaper than buying individual pins one at a time.

Also if those pins fit, the Tru-Glo tritium pin which is very good will also fit. ;)

I had them before I started using extreme. The only catch with them is, with wear it may develop some play in the fiber optic "drum/coil", causing them to "rattle" rather loud. . You can unscew the top and "stuff " it with tissue will usually take care of it. Only reason why I changed over is they were too bright at night-causing alot of glare(Ihunt hogs at night).
