Everyone sees things differently ... color-blinded guys even more so!! So are you running stock color configurations on your sights or are you paying a little extra to customize your color set-ups.

I personally run a custom set-up:
.029 - green
.019 - green
.019 - red
.019 - green
.019 - green

I also just ordered BLUE fiber to play with this summer. And I am looking at going to a 3 pin set this year instead of 5. Thought that I would change some things up :) Have to keep playing :)

Evan, the blue is a tough color from my experience. It is the first to wash out compared to the other colors out there. Just get a small piece of fiber to try out first until you decide you like it.

I have been hearing a lot about it washing out in super bright light but that it has been "better" on 3Ds and putting that pin on an animal. I will be starting small with it and might just do a little playing on my turkey set up to start with since I am a ground blind guy.

I got so used to shooting the stock Spot Hogg configuration the years before I signed on with MBG that I didn't bother changing colors. Now that I am a "free agent" I am just going with what I know...stock Spot Hogg colors for me!

Standard color configuration on my Spot Hoggs. Works well for me.

Evan I've also tried the blue fiber. It doesn't gather the light like other colors do. It works great if you have a small light on it however. I used to use it with a light for my indoor set up and that worked great but outside with no light it sucked.

Just switched to blue .010 and love it. For some reason I feel I can see my arrow flight better after the shot. It may just be the fact that I went from side mounted pins to a single up mounted pin.
